I'm makeing a Chobits costume for Halloween, because it'll be easier than a Harle costume, which I'd rather work on long term. Not a Chii costume. Just another Chobits persocom. I'll let you know how it goes and if you've got any suggestions lemme know! =) Hopefully I can give some pictures or something when I'm done.
I took an old pair of white tights and cut them off as high up as I could.
I found some baby headbands at the local Dollar Store and bought two packages (each with four headbands) so I would have a matching set of each. The baby headbands turned out to be the perfect size for garter thingies and they are uber cute!
I put on the stockings and the headbands, arranged them and then hand sewed the headbands to the edge of the stockings while they were still of so that they wouldn't be to big or two small. If you try this try not o sew your legs. I doesn't feel good.
These turned out really cute and were super easy to make.
I hate it when my mum drags me into thrift stores. It's so boreing.
So I decided to make the best of it and look for stuff I could use on my costume. I found a lavendar skirt. It was just the right color but I didn't like the way it was made ver much. So I got it and then mangled- er modified it. I shortened it.. a lot. Took out the slip thingy (annoying material). Removed elastic on two parts of the waist. Took the waist in to fit. Made slits of the sides. I'm still working on it quite a bit. Eventually I'll probably put lace or bows on it or something.
I'm attempting to make ears of femo in my crafts class. I talked my best friend into being another Chobits with me so she's making ears too.
