Fun Times in Fantasy Worlds~*~ from Sci-fi to DIY

This play was one of my favorites ever to design!  This was an amazing cast that put on a hilarious show.  June in Georgia is hot, hot, hot, so I did my best to make the costumes lightweight but still in Renaissance “style”.

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.
