Last year, Teen Wonder was "Vocaloid Rin" for cosplay and I made a relatively elaborate costume for her. It was fun, and I like making costumes, and especially for my kids.
And this may be the last one I make for Teen Wonder, as she's graduating and going off to college in the fall.
(do I feel sad? sort of, but mostly excited for her)
This year? Fiona from the Gender-bender episode of "Adventure Time". Adventure time is our favorite show to watch as a family - it's on cartoon network on Monday evenings (the new episodes, but it's on other times as well). I've featured Adventure Time once before when I endeavored to make a Finn hat for Wild Thing for Christmas. The regular version features Jake the Dog and Finn the Human. The gender bender version (just one episode) features Cake the Cat and Fiona the Human.
I made a hat with longer ears that stick up (the challenge)
I made a backpack
I made a blue denim miniskirt.
I made a Cake.
I found the longest striped socks I could.
The full effect! She just needs a large pink jewel that transforms into a sword. I know, I know. But I ran out of time!
Close up of the backpack - completely improvised using felt and flannel and a big button and a functional zipper so it can actually be used to carry stuff around in.
|Since I didn't know of any friends dressing as Cake, I made one to go with the Cosplay. (However, I notice that Cake didn't get packed. Maybe Teen Wonder is planning to meet some cute Cake in San Jose? (not cuter than mine though).|
|Yeah, she's bad-ass (Fiona), but also adorable!|
I can't wait to finish this one - it's been quite awhile since I finished the top - and it's already a hit around here even though you risk getting stuck with a needle in the thigh if you throw it over you at the moment.
Linking up at these great Friday parties - go check them out!!
