I saw this picture when looking at the other beautiful DC bombshells, I instantly fell in love.
As I mention in the Evie post I used the other side of the taped up mannequin to made the pattern for the top.
This is the prototype, to be honest I'm not 100% happy with this pattern, I think it needs so elastic in the bottom.
Because it was going to be the easier part I made the trousers, i just used a simple high waisted trouser pattern I shorted the legs top match the picture.
I learnt a new skill with this cosplay, Appliqué I had no idea what this was when I started. Basically I googled 'how to make patches' I was contemplating buying some patches rather then use appliqué but when I looked at some videos I thought it looked relatively easy so I gave it a go.
Applique is layering shapes of fabric on top of each other and sewing around the edges.
I was really unhappy with my first attempt so I retried and you can see the difference.
Have a guess which is the second attempt in the comments?
After finishing the patches on the arms, I used the pattern to make the top.
I hemmed it with yellow bias tape then added the ties.
I drew lines down the leg with fabric pens.
The the apron was patterned free hand.
The last part of the costume was the bandana.
I hand drew on lightning bolts.
Next parts were the serving tray and boots.
Boots were easy I just spray painted then and added foam lightening bolts.
The serving tray was a plastic sundae cup painted inside with pink acrylic paint. The whip cream was white cotton fabric stuff with teddy bear stuffing. The cherry was fimo.
I thought was a nice touch would for my contact cards to be serving ticket.
I took her to MCM Birmingham and Food and Cosplay snapped this amazing shoot of me.
Can not wait to get her out again.
Thanks for reading.
