Cutie Mark Crusaders


Costume Information

As part of a CMC group with Sakurahana (Sweetie Bell) and our friend Dan as Scootalo (after much begging and calling him a chicken XD)

Gonna do a dungaree cutsie farm-hand kind of thing I think. Like yellow cord dungarees, a check shirt and some sturdy boots. Never made trousers before so could be very fun XD
Will use my Ariel wig though as I honestly can't see the point of buying another waist-length red wig when I already have one.

This was my first pair of trousers, and I'm pretty chuffed with the result!

Hairbow of doooooom (Posted 9th October 2012)

Really bored this evening, so whipped together the hairbow out of the leftovers from the dark bits of my Peach cosplay (old fabric is oooold)
I took the picture on a folded newspaper to demonstrate how huge this bow is. It's bigger than my Ariel one fo sho

DID THAT PIN GET IN THE WAY OF MY ASS (Posted 4th October 2012)

Deliberate misquote XD
Managed to stab my butt with a pin when trying to sort out the straps :/
Other than that. there have been no major casualties with these dungarees AND THEY ARE DONE FINALLY
In the picture, the straps needed topsticth detail, and I had to adjust the side fastenings so that the torusers don;t sit so high. Goddamnit yellow, such an unflattering colour

About 2038374347756745646 stitches and hours later (Posted 28th September 2012)

...slight exaggeration
I now have a pair on non-simon-cowell-y dungarees. All they need is a pair of straps, and some fastenings for the sides.
I decided to make them look like 'real' dungarees, which involved ALL OF THE TOPSTITCHING. If I hadn't decided to do this, these would have been finished about 10 days ago XD Worth it though, I'm so proud.
Just finishing touches to the dungarees and a hairbow to do now woooo

Started (Posted 9th September 2012)

So i finally manned up and started making my very first pair of trousers?
The result? A Simon-Cowell-esque pair of clown pants. May need a liiiittle bit of taking in!
