Information

My favourite Sheryl costume, it's just so so cute~! <333

Was very easy to make and I didn't need to do much except make the top!

Top was like a trapezium shape out of some weird flannelette like fabric, I think it's like baby blanket fabric. It's very soft and warm! I then made the sleeve and cut out half of it to sew it into the top and then sewed on the blue trim. The bottom was gathered into the blue trim which matched the width of my hips.

Shorts were originally trousers I had but I cut them shorter. One day when I can actually be bothered, I will make them from scratch.

Headband is a normal thick headband with fabric covering it.

Charlie/Special-pleb is letting me borrow her accessories and wig, thank you Charlie!! <333

Sunglasses bought from Primark.

Boots and purchased from Priceless Shoes.
I was going to make boot covers but I saw them cheap and they were cute and fairly accurate so I just went ahead and bought it - making this costume done!

Progress Journal

Teaser~ (Posted 12th March 2011)

My boots arrived a while back and I've only just had a chance to properly wear them out! They're... higher than I expected so they're not as comfy but they're alright, I'll get use to them :3

So here's a little teaser photo without the wig and accessories - Charlie's supplying them for me :3
She's also supplying proper socks and shorts cause these are just make shift ones from my wardrobe XD;

You can see my new sunglasses though, Primark, waheeey! They're similar to my old pair, not as nice because it's cheaper but they're alright :3

I'm still considering taking in the top, we'll see come closer to the time. Gotta see how much work I have left for Kita!

Accessories (Posted 4th December 2010)

Tum tum tum headband is done! Although I miiiight make it out of fabric instead of just covering a headband when I get proper glasses because at the moment the glasses won't stay on my head!

Sunglasses are actually pretty perfect but I crushed them in my bag and so they are broken forever, sad times ;_; (Paid £5 for them too and were my favourite pair DDD8) I shall look around for new sunglasses some other time.

This took no time at all that I doubt it's even worth keeping track of it... Cause I already had the headband and fabric herpderpderp!

Top! (Posted 4th December 2010)

Not quite use to posing with a full length mirror yet so very bad quality but at least you can see it!

It's actually quite warm, cause it's like baby blanket material LMAO (in my opinion anyway), I shall be nice and warm in this cosplay but also quite cool at the same time 8).

Very quick to make because I was wearing a strappy top and based the measurements on that which saved me from using maths and a measuring tape to work out each length :'D
I love it when I'm very handily wearing something that I could base the pattern off!

Kinda used the same kind of pattern as I did for my Clow Country Sakura cosplay only I extended it into like a bell shape and gathered/pleated it into the band at the bottom.

It's very cosy, I love wearing it 8)

Time Taken: 1hr 30mins
