EXP con 2009, Otakon 2010
I LOVE mermaids, and Caimie is awesome.
I got a T-shirt pattern for the shirt, and made it yellow with burgundy sleeves and trim first. I then appliqued on the star on the front and hand painted on all the circles and the “crimin” logo. For the tail, I made the tail base first, and for the scales I appliqued two pieces of cotton lycra together, and cut out the design for the scales. I didn’t put in a zipper, I made it so that the fin was removable and I was ideally supposed to walk. hahaha.. that is extremely hard with your ankles tied together. Oh well, I just have to be carried *_*. I made a backpack thingie with lots of batting/stuffing and fabric. I wish I could have made it open, but I wasn’t sure how.
I attempted to dye the first wig I got for this a better color, and it didn’t really work. I finally got a wig in the perfect color, though, so I’m very happy about that.
Made in 2009
