Ah Mizune. So Tybalt_Flux wanted to get together a huge SE photoshoot for Katsucon - like one of each character. I volunteered to do Mizune. I liked the character design. Sharp geometric patterning is visually appealing to me.

Mouse Feet - made using slippers as a base. I built the shape using foam to pad out the slippers, then covered it with a grey "cuddle" fabric. They were soooo soft. I kept petting my legs!

Dress - This was actually my first garment. Perhaps a little ambitious! I used McCalls 4460 as a basis. I redrafted some pattern pieces to add the black at the top and bottom. I used Casa Collection Matte Satin for the dress, and then used twill tape to make the stripes. This was a bad choice, because it wasn't thick enough and caused puckering. I need to resolve this issue. The skirt is lined with pink matte satin because I wanted it to be exciting.

The hat. Oh, I love this hat. It was actually my first solo sewing project! I used non-pill fleece for the entire thing (oh so warm and welcome at a Feb. convention). I used a base fleece hat pattern (the website is no longer available) and then just modified it to resemble Mizune's hat. The ears are held in place with a combination of plastic boning (for structure) and wire (for angle). I freehanded patterns for the nose, eyes, and ears. I'm so happy with the way it turned out!
