Although my personal preference for the Bimaa sweater is the cowl look because it looks so damn squishy and delicious, the looks I was going for for my Halloween outfits both required hoods! I present to you all, the Finn Bimaa and the Totoro Bimaa Sweater Dress!
We love all things anime and yes that includes Pokemon! Get ready for a sweet Girafarig inspired dress! YEAH! Earlier this month, someone turned 6! It has been a whirlwind of a month, what with birthdays x 2, visitors, sewing (per the usual), starting kindergarten, baby announcements, appointments galore... my head is still spinning! But don't worry: I'm passed my nausea-phase so I'll be fine 😁
Some of you probably don't know what the heck I am talking about! Well, Nyan Cat is a free smartphone game that is basically about an 8-bit pop-tart kitty cat, Nyan Cat, that travels through space eating all sorts of things from sweets to veggies to weird pills while running into obstacles like doggies, spaceships, and worse of all, Tac Nayn, an evil waffle kitty (which is Nyan cat spelled backwards). The game is really simple. Oh, did I mention that Nyan has a never ending trail of rainbows? Hooked. I had my inspiration for my dresses!
My chibi gothic Lolita look! The look consists of 8 pieces. Let's start at the top and work our way down, shall we? First let it be know that every bit of this ensemble was SELF DRAFTED. And some were much trickier than others!
I recently made my daughter a Rainbow Dash birthday dress for her upcoming birthday. As per her request, her dress had two super fun elements that I want to share with you all: a modest set of wings added to a back bodice and a cascading ruffle tail! This will be perfect for any birthday dress and a great added touch to those Halloween outfits that we'll all be toiling away on soon enough!!
Yesterday I posted on her "RAINBOW DASH!" dress. Toady, I'm gonna tell you about all the gory details Behind the Seams. Along with the tale, I'm going to show you some out takes from our photo shoot so you don't get bored ☺
Once upon a time, long, long ago (well, maybe it was this past June) a sweet little girl dreamed of the perfect birthday dress. As she slept, visions of her favorite thing popped into her head: horses. The horses played and galloped and whinnied and then something magical began to happen. Those horses began to transform into her favorite show about horses: My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic. When she awoke her mother asked her what she wanted her birthday, and the sweet little girl knew exactly what she wanted her dress to look like: "RAINBOW DASH!" she cried out! It was certain in her mind that she must have a dress that looked just like Rainbow Dash!
