About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Not too difficult, honestly. The blouse and skirt were bought and modified; I had to do some weird wizardry with one of the sleeves to allot for another arm.
The arms sprouting out of my head and sides are various mannequin and nail art practice hands. For the full-sized arm, I made an impression of the shape of my own arm before mounting the mannequin hand at the end. There's a harness that goes beneath the blouse that keeps the extra arm balanced; the half-arm is attached inside the armsock to my forearm with an elastic rig. Even with those things, this costume is surprisingly comfortable somehow.
- Personal Thoughts:
- ARMS COMIN OUT MY ARMS ARMS ARMS
My friend and I terrified everyone at the convention. Laughs were had all around. And by that I mean we were the only people laughing, and everyone else was scared of us. I made two children cry- all it took was having them look at me. Oops.
