Compilation of a few items that I have been working on for Lilimon/Lilymon/Lillymon (too many spellings). All need finessing/finishing work.
Starting from the top left are the leaves/wings. They are made of 22 gauge wire, wrapped with cotton brocade cloth and painted with a dark green paint pen. (First time making wings.)
At the top right is a portion of the flower belt that will go around my waist. The petals were made with a stretch cotton and then hand dyed to get the darker tones on the bottom. Then they were stuffed with scraps of fabric from previous projects and sewed onto the belt.
At the bottom left is the headpiece, modeled by my Pen Pen plushie. The petals were also made of stretch cotton and dyed with the petals on the belt (consistency!). The headband was made with 20 gauge wire and wrapped in cotton to reduce any markings after wearing the headpiece for a few hours. From there, I attached the vines to the back (tying and gluing). The vines are made out of yarn that had been hand crocheted. The yarn has a thin thread of gold running through it, which I felt like it gave more of the vine look. Trying to go for an organic costume and didn't want the vines to be a burden to the outfit. After attaching the vines, I went through and sewed each petal through the headband and to each other so that they almost connect at the top. The yellow filament is a thin wire wrapped with another bit of stretch cotton so it can be bent as need-be. It was sewn to the tops of the petals to maintain stability.
To the bottom right are the boots! They are brocade cotton boot covers that go over a pair of flats. The flowers were hand cut and sewed on. Little bit of cleanup left on the boots, but they are nearly complete.
Lilimon should be completed by the end of the week!

@Pan-Chan: Squeeing is always good. I can't wait to get this completed and wear it out! Always a joy to hear from other Digimon cosplayers. XD
