More Eclair! This makes #5. I love this series and character too much.
About the Costume:
Coat/top is made of black wet spandex and white stretch moleskin. I used a princess seam dress pattern, with alterations for the cut outs and black sections on top. The coat/top is faced at top. I choose not to line as I didn't want the weight of the lining to inhibit the flow and drape of the fabric. I also put horse hair in the bottom hem to help with how I wanted the hem to lay. The dash marks and Xs were heat and bonded on and then stitched down.
Shorts are made of the same wet spandex used in the top. I made the shorts and then cut out the opens. The Xs are made with elastic and then sewn down. Shorts were blind hemmed at the waist and hem line to give a clean finish. And let me tell you that running stretchy, slimy fabrics through a blind hemming machine is no easy task!
Boots are gogo boots that were shortened. White designs were heat and bonded on. Black parts glued.
Gloves from an older costume. Necklace is made of black spandex and white metallic spandex.
Wig is actually my old Eclair wig just restyled.
Costume made and worn by me!
