Costume Information

I love the eeveelutions! (Already cosplayed 3 of them!) And after seeing this cutie, I'm tempted to go for it!
Luckily already have a pink wig I can use. Will design a simple yet cute gijinka for it. Thinking of getting a tulle pink skirt for cuteness and poof! And making a shawl as well as all the bows and scarves! And of course the ears and tail.

For MCM Scotland Comic Con in September

Lovely design! I really like the little shawl, it's a nice mix of your own ideas and the original design. :] I'm sure it'll be just as lovely as your previous Eeveelutions!

Redo (Posted 1st February 2014)

I'm considering bringing Sylveon for Kitacon for the Friday evening and I want to fix it up a lot.
I didn't like what I wore underneath the caplet at expo (even though it help as I was chilly) so I plan to get a simple pink dress to wear underneath instead.

I will be reusing everything else:

I will fix up the bows and ribbons and hopefully get better tights.

Head piece (Posted 1st September 2013)

This...was an interesting challenge. The ears have wire in them and wrapped around a hairband. The bow was sewn onto the right ear along with the two scarves sewn behind the ear. The wire is strong enough to hold the ears themselves up, not for any extras (example, scarves.) So a lot of experimenting happened to get the scarves sitting where I wanted them to. Eventually, I decided to sew each part together (left scarf is sewn onto both ears and the bow, etc.) This surpringly worked, it keeps them all together without anything falling. I tried it on my head for a quick test and sits fine.

It's not exactly how I wanted it to look, but it's the basic idea of how I wanted it.

Overall, this cosplay is finished and ready for expo!

Tail (Posted 1st September 2013)

Simple tail made from polar fleece

Cloak (Posted 26th August 2013)

Finished the cloak for Sylveon. Had to restitch the scarves as the first attempt was horrible. Still not as good but it looks better.

So far I got both bows finished and two scarves finished.

Skirt (Posted 12th June 2013)

The skirt arrived for my Sylveon cosplay (only £3 yay!) It is a slightly paler pink than I thought it would be, but I think it could work as the main body of Sylveon is pale pink/off white.

I was going to use a tulle skirt for this, however I decided against it and went for something cute and simple (and cheaper.)

Shoes (Posted 1st June 2013)

The shoes from Bodyline arrived today! I saw them a while ago and thought it would be cute for Sylveon. I was hoping to get a deeper shade of pink or sax but they didn't have them in my size so I went with the lighter shade of pink.
