Ninetails cosplay

 The main part of this costume was a vintage lace layered corset with the tails sewn on the back.  She helped stuff and paint the tails and ears as well as tell me exactly what she wanted for the rest, which was all hand made, as well, except for the tank top she wore under the cape.   We had to do laces in the back as well as the front to let the extra center tail be centered!  ( worn on an elastic waistband)  The front being adjustable as well makes it possible for someone other than this tiny 9 year old to wear it in the future as well!!  😉 She was worn out at the end of the day.  I would say it added between 5-10 lbs!

I really respect both pokemon girls’ decisions to re-create these characters in an age appropriate way, because they have seen a lot of the other interpretations online and most of them were not necessarily kid friendly!  They guided me in making their own visions of how a human version of these great characters would look.

Here is one more shot that shows the tails and pretty corset on the adult mannequin:

We are pretty new to the Pokemon world, so I am excited to keep this one around for a long time while we learn more.

I put this into tutorials because I do have patterns for the tails and ears if anyone wants them. (just send me a message) I just used the free images I saw online and drew my version.  I bought simple fabric store fur and we painted it using a base color of a rusty red/orange and adding pale yellow till we blended in with the cream fur.


Earlier in 2013, I was approached to see if I could recreate a picture in a magazine as a wedding dress.


I said I would try 🙂

Here is the best picture I got of it (shown without the sash) before it went off to the wedding.

Custom Design Lace Wedding Dress by MiaLa

 I used two separate patterns.  One was a princess line formal that I chopped at the waist.  The skirt I changed from the very full one of the original pattern and actually used the pattern I use for my Princess Amidala skirt with the mermaid fishtail additions taken off.  The bottom layer was ivory bridal satin, plus an ivory liner with a floral lace overlay.  I used the scalloped edges of the lace to make the top “straps.  They met in the back in a deep v and the raw edge at the arms was trimmed in a narrow strip of the other edge of the scalloping.  She was planning to wear little red flats with it.  I can’t wait to see some pics of the special day 🙂

And Finally, some wedding shots!  She looks amazing 🙂
