Cosplayer: Amy-Lou

Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

2nd April 2020: Started on the watch by printing off a picture to get an idea of proportions and making a pattern based on that.

Plan is to layer up EVA foam and sand it down to shape. By using layers I can sandwich the 3 tubes into the design rather than trying to drill through a finished piece.

23rd March 2020: Painted Sleeves Made a first pass with the stencil using Dylon fabric paint in purple. Once that was dry I did a second coat to even out the colour using a small brush.
This paint can be heat set with an iron, then it's washable.

22nd March 2020: Pattern Stencil Used baking paper to sketch out a design that would fit to the sleeves. Once I was happy with the proportions I flipped it over and traced on the other side to transfer the design onto stiff card for the stencil.

29th January 2014: Dress Pattern The jumper dress is based on New Look 6179 - a raglan sleeve top extended to dress length. This way I can avoid having lots of seams visible and use a soft stretch jersey.
