Reason of creation:
This character is pure nostalgia, very playful but takes her job seriously.
This character and costume was on my wishlist for a while and the WCS gaved me the opportunity to make this for the OSU parade and future conventions.
I used the pattern of a strepless dress which I modified and the skirt is a circle skirt (didn’t had enough fabric to make a balloon skirt).
The ears and tail has a base of foam rubber covered with fur. The ears are sewed on the wig.
The tail is attached on a belt which I wear under the top.
The costume is made from a pink cotton/synthethic blend and the gloves and trim is burgundy velvetine.
Conclusion about this costume:
A fun and cute costume! Also pretty comfortable and not too hot, a great costume for in the summer!
