20th May 2015: Finished Completed the costume with time to spare on Tuesday night. The pants are resized XL denim jeans from Goodwill and the shoes were a gift from my sister that she got from Wal-mart for less than 6$, that I then painted blue. The Perry was also a gift from someone I don't know anymore that got him for me at a weekend trip to Disneyland three or so summers ago.
Altogether I'd say this is the cheapest costume I own, but not my prettiest, and will definitely be one of my favorites after the weekend. U v U
17th May 2015: The Shirt from Hell First shirt didn't work out.
Spent about a night sewing this new shirt. At one point, around 3AM in the morning, I was severely lacking the brain cells to keep sewing, but kept on anyway! And I accidentally sewed the shirt closed trying to get on the zipper...Flannel is not a bounce back kind of fabric, let me tell you.
7th May 2015: Shirt Progress Progress on the shirt is slow going, since I don't have access to an iron 24/7, but it's coming along. I'm not getting too excited about the shirt because I'm not sure how it will turn out. I've never paneled a shirt before, and most of what I make ends up too tight or lopsided or something like that.
I chose an off-white and orange flannel, but the lighting makes it look white.
