It’s been a whirlwind of activity to complete this whimsical cosplay before Dragon Con! This project was a lot of work and used many different skills.
As you know, I am a big fan of upcycling so I picked up shirts to disassemble, rearrange, and stitch into Colin Baker’s colorful jacket. I used a corset from another cosplay. I dyed some shorts from Target and used a fabric pen to add the stripes. I sculpted and painted the iconic cat brooch myself. I used leftover scraps from the shirt to make the matching ears. My friend Kelly styled a wig for me, which is going to look way more amazing than the one I had. I am so excited to unveil this at Dragon Con! Stay tuned!
you guys this took a zillion (or like 10) hours of painstaking one at a time gluing. SO SPARKLY!
Also – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
After a million hours of attaching bling, I have made some great progress on the under hat!
Here is my lineup, I thought it would be fun to do a “before and after, so I will take some pictures and remake this next week!
I am not 100% sure on days/times yet, but tentatively I am looking at Steampunk Bell Thursday day and changing into my Marriott Picasso dress for Revenge of the Carpet and Nerdy New Year Thursday night. Friday I will be Queen of Hearts all day, and maybe change to Princess Vader that night if I need a corset break. Saturday morning I will be back in the Marriot Picasso dress for the parade and photo shoot, and then spend the evening in the Ecto-1. Sunday I will be in the Memorial TARDIS. I will probably not do any costumes on Monday, but if I do it will be something super comfy. Maybe I will bring Red from OUAT as a back up.
I am almost packed, I just need to sew a clasp onto the TARDIS gown, finish installing the shelf on my Ecto-1 for the music, and make a repair to Belle’s sleeve. I wanted to do a makeup costest for the Queen, but maybe I will just wing it.
I can’t wait to see all of the amazing costumes and events and surprises Dragon Con has in store for 2016!
