Outfit No. #1: The Green Outfit

I’m finished!  Finally.  :)

And you know, I’m actually rather pleased with the result.  I had some awesome material, a sewing machine that had never been used, and apparently, too much time on my hands (ok, not really.  This took me a lot longer than I wanted it to.)  Hopefully this inspires something in someone out there, because you too can make a crazy-A costume like this.

Sketch of Green Outfit

So here’s the costume idea so far (click on the picture for a larger view):

Samimi's Green Outfit Design
My model is clearly trapped in the ’80s with that hair
  • Black Pants
  • Belt
  • Green Overlay Skirt
  • Green Arm Bands
  • Green Halter Top

As you can see, I’m not an artist, but it’s a pretty simple design so I’m excited.  I’ve already started on the arm bands, and holy canola oil, it’s time consuming – although that might honestly be because I’m really slow… But it feels like it’s taking forever.  In reality, it’s probably only been an hour but I’m lazy and these arm bands just go on and on.

Well that’s it really.  Just an update on the newest (first) costume.  I call it ‘The Green Outfit’ because I’m using green cloth and I’m original like that.
