The Powerpuff Girls
Blossom was a cosplay inspired by fanart. It was meant to be a simple cosplay, but I decided to add in a lot of unnecessary but nice features. The entire dress is fully lined, with a built in petticoat with lace trim and a blind hem on the skirt. The bodice contains a built in bra and has boning all the way around. I experimented with the dress extensively, and by that I mean jumped around in it a bunch, and it doesn’t budge at all. Definitely a good feature for a strapless dress. Along the edge of the bodice I tried chaining multiple embroidery files on my embroidery machine for the first time. This enables a larger embroidery pattern bigger than the max hoop size. It was a success and you can see the method used more extensively in later cosplays, most notably Cinder.
