My friend Tikki suggested that I make this costume after I showed a great appreciation for the simple, yet dramatic design of her Cherrie costume (also from the Unico series). Needless to say, I liked the idea and set about creating the costume. It came together so perfectly, and I'm truly happy with the end result. Cat (Sphinx's Daughter), Tikki (Cherrie) and I got together for a small Unico group at AWA '01. Many thanks to Mappyman for sending me the Unico movies, without which I couldn't have made the costume accurately.
BODYSUIT: I used Kwik Sew pattern #2108 as a base for this costume. I altered it by adding the extra face covering to the hood and making the pants into flowing bellbottoms. I also added on the cloth strips that hang from the arms and back of the neck.
SHOES: The 7 inch heels were bought at a thrift store in Fort Lauderdale.
MAKEUP: The face paint is "blue spirit Ben Nye creme foundation". I used lipstick on my lips and blue eyeshadow over the foundation.
