Some behind the scene shots of a bit of the handiwork that went into Togepi! She's probably the most difficult thing I've made to date, so I'm very proud of her and happy so many people like her, too!
She was made almost exclusively out of different satins, which made sewing tougher...but I think I achieved the fancy, almost princess-like look I was going for, so it was definitely worth it! This was also my first time doing extreme gathering on anything! As far as her shapes go, I had to draw out the pattern for each individual piece on plastic, cut each one out, and then trace and cut them out again and again on the actual fabric. I lost track, but I'm pretty sure I cut out at LEAST 30 little shapes total for Togepi's pants! The awesome thing is that since I saved the plastic templates, I can make more Togepi/Togetic stuff in the future! 😜
All in all, I couldn't be happier with how she came out. She's the first full design of my very own that I've brought to life! Are there any other pokémon you guys would like to see me take on?? ❤️✨💙 #togepi #cosplay #pokemon #pokemoncosplay #spiffycosplayanddesign
