Puar from Dragonball
Event(s): Kamehacon 2018
I got the idea of cosplaying Puar from Dragonball stuck in my head during a long drive one day and couldn't get it out. When I got home, I immediately started sketching out ideas. As someone who sells her costumes once she's done with them, I was thrilled to see that the design could double as Sonic if I played my cards right.
The top half of the dress is based off of a dress pattern I had made an outfit for myself out of the year before. The bottom half is two layers of circle skirts. The costume is fully lined with a cute print cotton, and zips up the back.
The tail and ears were both pretty simple designs. The ears are just a set of triangles, stuffed and sewn onto a headband, and the tail is a long tube, stuffed with a wire hanger inside for shaping. The tail is attached with safety pins at the base and the inward curve.
