7th October 2013: Remake time After rushing the costume for AyaCon in the midst of moving house, I got the costume finished but not to the standards I'd envisaged. On the Sunday of Aya, Maz asked me if I would team up with her for the World Cosplay Summit qualifiers in October at Play Expo, so that gave me great incentive to go back and do the costume properly this time!
I was pretty happy with the pantaloons overall, but having seen photos from Aya and now having more time to review the costume, I decided to experiment with padding out the legs to improve the shape. I inserted wadding between the lycra leggings that form a lining/stay and the loose outer fabric. It was one of these really simple, easy things to do that ends up making a great difference.
The shoes were alright but I took the opportunity to tidy them up a bit. I also inserted wire into the curly toe to help ensure it retains its shape.
I tried out Pros-aid to secure my ears and took more care blending them in with make-up.
Purim isn’t pictured with any notable make-up, but as it's such a bright, dance-inspired costume I felt I needed something vividly coloured to compete with all that pink fabric. I decided to try out pink eyeshadow and gold eyeliner, fuschia lipstick and I painted some false nails to match my fabric.
