Costume Information

I'm a big fan of Ghibli films and have always wanted to cosplay various characters (had my eye on both Kiki and Mononoke in the past) After seeing the film 'Arrietty' I knew she was a character that would get added to my wanted list of cosplay. I had a rummage through my fabric stash and found a nice red jersey fabric that would make a great little dress for Arrietty!
This should be a straight forward sewing project but will rely on some fancy little props and bobs.

Little lady's dress is coming together! (Posted 20th February 2014)

Have been so excited to get to work on this costume, i've been really lucky to have found most of the materials and resources already at home in my scraps and collection of random stuff :) Kinda appropriate huh.
Arrietty's dress although simple is taking a bit of time to come together but now the main dress is sewn i just have the collar and sleeves to go.
I chose to make the pin as a prop, so bought some dowel and used a polystyrene ball i had and voila! Now i'm covering the ball in clay to make it more durable and then it'll be ready for painting.
