About the Costume : This was a fun one to make! I found images of a screen used costume online (which are now on my Pinterest board), and I was able to draft a pattern based on that. I decided to forego the skort and went with a true skirt. I’m sorry, but in 1992 fashion choices were…bad. I’m not a fan of camel toe so I changed it. The outfit is made from Pon Te Am Scuba Knit in golden yellow, with the top flat lined to itself because it was kind of thin. The blue stripes are made from double folded bias tape in Yale blue. I had the patch custom made at AnythingChenille.com. I ordered the pom poms from PomExpress.com – Narrow streamer 3-12″ half bright gold / half true royal. They weren’t cheap but they’re accurate af. I’ll be pairing this with a blue shiny full length leotard, slouch socks, and some old school Reebok Renaissance sneakers. I can’t wait to wear this for Dragon!

 

All I want to do is graduate from high school, go to Europe, marry Christian Slater, and die.
