Cosplayer firewolf826 > Costume of Todd Allison from Todd Allison & the Petunia Violet
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- All items are purchased, save the vest. I bought green fabrics like FIVE TIMES to get the right color. At first, in the fabric store, I really wanted a nice suiting, but nope. And ended up buying this satiny stuff. But I must have been slightly delusional? Because the color was way too dark.
So, then, I bought fabric online TWICE, but being absolutely HORRID. Like, really ugly and neon. Finally, I went back to the store, and as much as it pains me to use broadcloth, that's all I could get in the correct color. In short, I AM DUMB.
As for the making of... I patterned the vest from absolute scratch. I'm actually pretty please at how it turned out!
- Personal Thoughts:
- I fell in love with Nozmo's comic "Todd Allison and the Petunia Violet" early 2012, literally rereading it several times. Not only is the art fun and unique, the story is intriguing, and the characters are hilarious and well-formed.
I just love Todd, who is outwardly very arrogant, indifferent, and hostile. But you can see how differently he acts with the curious and naive Petunia, who after a series of events becomes his neighbor. He is also a botanist and has lots of house plants. Did I mention how excited he is about plants?
I just, really wanted to make this costume? It's mostly closeted and is very obscure, but I really like it! Not many people at the cons recognized me, so it's extra nice when someone does! I was SUPER LUCKY that Wisecraxx wanted to be my Petunia!! She's so perfect, and we had a lot of fun! ;~~;
I somehow obtained a ton of photos of this costume. And they're all wonderful. How did this happen.
