The wig

Ahaha... I'm so uncomfortable working with wigs oTL But I really tried hard with this so be kind ^^; I started off with a Prince wig from Coscraft and only cut small sections at a time. I found this achieved nothing and eventually took a risk and started hacking away oTL This did work and I got a nice looking style out of it! I also attacked it with Got2B Glued hair spray to give it a spikey look :3 It wasn't really what I was aiming for but it looked nice so never mind! 8D I sewed the ears directly onto the wig so that I wouldn't have to worry about them moving about during the day. Although I did have to super glue them on first so that I was able to sew them on in the first place! The goggles I already owned from my Clone!Syaoran cosplay and looked really nice with the cosplay :D

Patches

To make the jacket more interesting I added on some iron-on patches! There's a pilot patch on the front and a Sonic the Hedgehog one on the right arm :3 When I wear this again I would add more as I was pressed for time and couldn't find many good ones in a short amount of time! I also added on a Tails logo on the back which I rather liked c:

The jacket

Not much to say on this really! Followed the basic jacket pattern I've used on every cosplay I have but mixed in some trim details this time! I also added in pockets since I was following what my work jacket looks like, plus I wanted something functional for once! :D Working with rib knit fabric was new but it wasn't difficult. I thought I wouldn't be able to sew it with my machine but it worked out fine! ^^ I sewed in the zip like normal and added a fur trim along the neckline by hand :3

Making the ears

I simply made the ears by cutting out triangles on the fur and sewing them together 8D Again, I did as tutorials suggested and made the orange section a big bigger than the white so that it folded over a little bit like real animal ears. I put a piece of foam in the middle so that they had some structure :)

Making the tails part 2

After I'd sewn the tails I turned them the right way around and stuffed them! I then sewed a bit of elastic on the end of each tail so that it could be hooked through a belt on my trousers :) I also brushed the fur with a comb. Alot. Keeps them looking nice after handling them!

Making the tails

Doing these journals after I've made the whole thing but never mind XD I started off with my paper pattern that I drew up on Illustrator and cut it out of the fur. I did the cutting part with a craft knife as suggested by internet tutorials... it did and didn't work, you have to be very careful with it I found! I sewed the orange and white parts with the machine first and attached the two halves together by hand. As the pointy ends would have never gotten through my sewing machine!

Fabric brought!

I've brought most of the fabric now. I've got the fur and the sweatshirt fabric is on its way! This must a be a record for me deciding on a cosplay and then choosing the fabric!! c:
