View Full Version : Rocket Grunt? Oh my.

07-24-2010, 01:48 PM
For Halloween (and possibly NDK) I'd like to pull together a female Team Rocket grunt costume. (Soul Silver version.)

As seen here: http://media.photobucket.com/image/team%20rocket%20grunt/kaleidoblue/extracc/250px-Team_Rocket_Grunt_HGSS.png

I figured I'd just buy the hat. Not too hard to find an inexpensive black newsboy cap.
I think I might ditch the gloves too, because...well, I don't like gloves. :untrust:

My biggest problems are:
The boots. I'm having a hard time finding thigh high (or even just knee high...) boots that won't break the bank.

Also, I'm not sure how to pull together the actual clothing. I was thinking of trying to make a pattern for just a dress or a skirt/shirt combo, but I'm not even sure where to begin. The collar is throwing me off, and I know I'll have to use a knit material and that's tough to work with.

Any tips? :bashful:

I would suggest making boot covers. This tutorial is popular: http://www.sarcasm-hime.net/bootcovers-tutorial.html

For the top and the skirt, I would buy a sewing pattern for a shirt with a mock turtleneck, and a simple black miniskirt is pretty simple to put together. And I'm sure you can find a pattern for that as well.
