This was one of those costumes that was deceivingly difficult. Patterning the top was done through multiple mock ups. The top is a halter made of suiting, satin and poly poplin. The skirt is a circle skirt that was interfaced and contains two gathered circle skirts underneath for volume. Bow just snaps onto skirt. Bear paws are made of faux fur with batting stuffed into a mitten shape. For the bear feet, several layers of eva foam were glued together, and then had a shoe glued to the foam. I then took foam and shaped the upper part of the paw, using batting to fill in and shape areas I couldn’t with the foam. Afterwards I made a pattern off the shape I created, and then cut it out of fur, which was glued to the foam. To do the claws, a thick craft foam was cut and glued. Wig is from Arda and is a short one with two clip ins.
