27th May 2013: Further Update... This being one of my early costumes it has a special place in my heart. I've recently decided to rework several parts of this costume again for a future photoshoot. My skills have improved since i made this all those years ago so i'm able to fix and add extra elements.
I made a new apron out of a faux suede fabric which gives it some lovely texture, and I improved the pattern on it too.
I also weathered my old Bowser brooch (which is still sculpted really inaccurately but oh well)
I also made a new scarf...though it could actually be too small now lol
I also restyled the wig one more :)
I can't wait to do the photoshoot now!
21st February 2011: Costume Revamp! Good news for my Malon costume, it will once again get to see the light of day! This costume is in pretty good condition in comparison to many of my others so I have decided to bring it along to Kitacon III.
This costume is actually quite old now so there are a few improvements to make, and i have already restyled my wig and bought some new boots (no more ugly, cheap ugg-wannabe boots) These ones are a skinnier fit, and perhaps not as accurate but they look more like riding boots than the others; so more suitable for Malon.
Next I need to take in the skirt, as it actually needs to sit higher up on my waist..i just hope i can work around the pattern. Then i'll remake the belt, i've move on from cardboard buckles hehe
