Tokyo Mew Mew

Build Notes:

Costume consists of a fully hand draped and patterned corset over custom bubble skirt. The primary material is a delicious bubblegum pink peau de soie with soft crushed velvet in raspberry utilized as part of the trim while the gloves are made with a luxurious swimsuit spandex in magenta per the client's selection.

The corset is lined using the same peau de soie as the exterior, although I used the wrong side of the material to provide less slippage during wear as it does not slip on the skin as smoothly as the right side does. Each panel is flat lined for additional durability and boned at the seams. The back features silver grommets spaced 3/4" inches apart to provide full coverage. A wide satin ribbon is shown in baby pink.

The skirt is host to a doubled circle skirt to provide maximum fabric for gathering and filling to ensure a magical, mystical bubble bounce. A simple a-line skirt design is used for the interior lining against the body to hold the shape in and create the soft rounded edging of the skirt. Fifteen yards of tulle fill the skirt for a light, airy puff. The back zips closed with a smooth, sturdy waistband with a hook and bar lap.

The provided boots originally arrived in black and have been painted with four layers of Angelus Brand Leather Shoe Paint. The sealant is a clear semi-gloss.

The client plans to provide their own wig, ears, and tail so they were not created as part of this package.
