Boat Spirit - Spirited Away

Information

Part of a Spirited Away cosplay with my sister for CICAE 2013.

The cost of £15 is an estimation and it doesn't take into account that I had quite a few bits and bobs for this already from previous things (for example purple material, foam, paint and elastic).

Although this costume is simple it's also been very fun to make and has led me to do a couple of things that I've not done with costumes before :) it hasn't taken a long time but I've been having to do it around work and uni which kind of sucks and has made it slightly stressful, I can't wait to finish uni so that I have less pressure in my spare time :P

Also I didn't plan to do everything on this costume for the first time but maybe I will cosplay this again and make improvements ^^

Ooh I love it! Looks exactly like the reference pic, except for.. where are your 'ears'? You know, those pink thingies coming out of the hat? Please wear this to another event - I want to see it in person!

Stuffages~

Sewed the red thing, looks like a bed sheet that's been sewn into a cloakish thingy :) I like it anyway.
And I've made the hat thing (I did make a mistake though with the fabric and as a result will now be wearing it backwards)
I just need make the mask thing and finish the head piece off
