I’ve been more productive sewing this week than I have in a while.
First, I have nearly finished the second pair of overalls – Mario’s – for the Disco Mario Party cosplay group. The only thing I have left to do before the fitting is hem the upper edge and around the straps of the overalls.
I started by sketching out the pieces I felt like I would need. It was hardest to draw the collar piece.
I separated the sleeve into two pieces in order to flare out the bottom of the sleeve. I also decided to separate the main shirt pieces into multiple parts. Since I plan to use Fosshape to get the collar to stand up nicely, I need to connect the collar to some other molded pieces of Fosshape – around the neck line and the shoulder seams in the front and back.
Next up after this will be hats. The fireball Mario and Luigi costumes have white hats, and I seem to have enough fabric for it. But I also have leftover sequinned fabric. So what do you think – shiny holographic white hats? Or shinier green/red sequinned hats? Vote in the comments! 🙂
