The Santa Clause
DescriptionCostume: When I first made this costume, it was mostly just for fun, and I wanted to attempt something I was relatively certain no one had attempted before. I didn't think anyone would recognize it, but with how well-received Bernard was at Holiday Matsuri, I wish I could wear something like this year-round!
Construction: This is probably my first fully-homemade cosplay that I am really proud of. The shirt is from a typical pirate shirt pattern, with two backs sewn together instead of a back and a front. The stripes were sewn on before the shirt was put together--they were lined up parallel to the grainline arrows on the pattern. The hat is homemade too, it's a large circle with the bottom hemmed, and elastic inserted inside it. The bag is a typical messenger bag pattern, sans the fleece and interfacing inserts to make it floppy like the original one from the movie was. The necklace is mostly ornaments meant for the small bedroom and kitchen-sized christmas trees. The ribbon on the hat also has some embroidery I did myself, which I am particularly proud of.
