Ho-boy, this was a lot of firsts for me!
Can I start off by saying I love my hat? It's by far my favorite part of the costume. I drafted my own pattern to make the entire hat, but the original bill wasn't to my liking so I attached it to a plain white hat. Underneath that the hat is fully lined and stuffed to retain it's signature 'poof'.
The overalls I cut up a pair of thrift store shorts to draft the pattern, and added buttons. Could fit a little better, but overall I like it. The shirt was the most difficult, I modified a shirt thinking it would be easier... and boy was I wrong. Lesson learned, and I would like to remake it in the future.
The stockings are two pairs sewn together for the black stripe, but I need to find a way to keep them up better. The shoes... well hahaha. I had a pair I spent forever working on, only to have them FALL APART and disintegrate basically at the con. Then my friend went out and bought me some vans which somehow disappeared? Idk.
The purse I drafted the pattern for as well, and then painted. Then I added the pokegear that I painted, and a pokeball. Tadaaa~
This costume is super fun to wear, but I really need to learn how to pose in it better. ><
