View Full Version : Help with Blue cosplay?

So I'm cosplaying Blue from Pokemon Special:

I've already made her shirt and skirt, but I need some help with the rest of it.

For her hat, so far I've got a white bucket hat that I was going to put the leftover red fabric on to make the design. I've also got a white fedora that has a nice, flat brim, but the top isn't as accurate as the bucket hat's. I was looking for a flat-brimmed, white bowler cap, because that seems to be what she wears, but I couldn't find one not made of straw or plastic...

As for her socks, I was going to gent some short blue socks and cut up some blue leggings to make the loose part and then sew them together. Problem is, I can't find any blue leggings that are the right colour. ._.

Her bag...I just need a yellow messenger bag...but, again, I haven't found anything suitable yet.

Any suggestions? owo

I think you can get away with it by using a yellow tote bag rather than a messenger bag. But if you prefer authencity you can either make one your self or something like this (http://www.ebags.com/product/eastsport/small-messenger-bag/136383?productid=1353608&sourceID=GOOGFEED&couponid=40959822&CAWELAID=341421430)

Ah! That looks pretty close, thanks. I don't know if I want to spend $50 on a bag for cosplay though, especially since it's probably not one I'd use outside of cosplay...so I'll look into finding some similar-looking tote bags. <.< >.>
