Adventure Time is such an awesome show, and I knew as soon as I started watching it that I wanted to cosplay someone from it. I fell in love with Fionna when I saw her first episode (not to mention that I think Cake is hilarious), and so I settled on her - it was a toss-up between her and Lumpy Space Princess, but I couldn't work out a way to cosplay LSP that I was happy with. As with most things I cosplay from, a group amongst my friends quickly formed, and so I've got a Finn, a Princess Bubblegum and a Marceline to take photos with in the future!

As I already had the fabric, I made the hat first, and it's made from white micro fleece (which I unfortunately don't seem to be able to buy anymore!). It's very snuggly, and the ears are filled with toy stuffing. It closes with a velcro fastening under the chin.

I made the shirt from a turquoise cotton jersey, and because I wasn't paying attention I accidentally cut the fabric the wrong way on my first attempt; however I was able to salvage the ruined pieces and use it for the sleeves. I made the skirt from some royal blue lycra that I had lying around in my fabric stash.

I never seem to be able to find thigh-high socks that actually go thigh-high on my legs, so I decided that I'd make my own! I made them from white viscose jersey and some left over blue lycra for the stripes, and the making process actually went a lot smoother than I thought it would. The shoes are just a pair of black flats that I already owned.

The bag is made from two shades of green cotton poplin. I looked for a long time for fabric that I was happy enough with to make the bag, but could never find anything in the right colour; in the end I decided to use interfacing to make the bag sturdier.

2014 UPDATE:
My friend, Build-It Bradley, made me my very own sword for Fionna! I love it to bits and was so happy to use it with this costume. I managed to bring it home in one piece across the Atlantic as well, so bonus!
