Supanova this April. She is obsessed with the movie and Vanellope (eg: rewatching the movie at the cinemas, has toys, has everything). I asked her if she wanted to cosplay as something for the event and she suggested this right away.
Outfit run down
Green kids hoodie found on Ebay. I'll rethread the strings with red/hot pink string and stitch some more string on the pocket. I'll have to shop around for the right colour. I might have to lighten it a bit for the right shade.
Brown netball skirt. I figured this would be the best for the pleats. I could make a skirt like that but.. effort!
Black kids boots. This shall be the hardest thing to get so far. It's weird how stores almost completely remove all winter boots from their stock over Summer. People still want to buy boots. I'll see if I can find ones without buckles. I'll even paint some red liquorice on the bottom of the shoe. I love making the small details.
Green kids sized leggings. Ebay strikes again. I can't work out if sewing ribbons on the leggings will look better or if fabric paint will be easier. It'll come down to a pro and con list on this decision.
Deep pink scrunchie. Home made to make liquorice hair tie! This is easy. Elastic + material. I'm thinking a satin for the shine.
Various candy beads and cabochons from Delish beads. I already have the gummi bears and I can make some sprinkles to glue on bobby pins with some spare polymer clay I have.
This is it for the outfit. I thought it was simple at the beginning but getting all this will take a few weeks. I can't wait to put it all together for my daughter.
