Worn to: Christmas Cosplay Day 2012 (Belleville, ON)
Cost to make: $59
The coat is made out of velour.
Dress is made of polyester in a bright Christmas-y red. The bodice is a simple fitted tube with an elastic across the top. Similar to what I did for Rider in 2010. The skirt is the width of the original cut fabric sewn twice together, and then hand-pleated/gathered into place. That was a bit of a pain. But so worth it. However it did result in a heavy skirt.
The under-skirt is white satin, using a similar method to the skirt of the dress for gathering. But it's held underneath with an elastic band.
The embroidery on the bottom of the underskirt is done on the machine.
