For a costume that started as a joke this was an awful lot of work! I'm so proud of it though. The top was based on a civil war uniform pattern, the skirt and tush cape were based on a skirt pattern. The gray trim is a matte pleather, it was found at a store in NYC's fashion district.
Styling the wig was more challenging than I expected it to be, but I like how it came out. It's tough to see, but I'm also wearing honey colored contacts.
I wasn't really sure what to do for shoes since the reference doesn't show them.
It was a lot of fun wearing these with my friends!
