Ducklett (Original Design)- Pokémon
Katsucon 2017- Washington DC
Design notes: I designed both Ducklett and Swanna gijinkas as evening looks. Ducklett being the younger trendy look and Swanna is the evolution into the belle of the ball - so to speak.
Wig: I used a powder blue Vivien provided by Arda Wigs.
Top: I dyed a stretch white mesh pale blue using turquoise IDye poly. The wing appliques were bought on a trip to NYC in the fabric district. I glued a fabric backing to add a layer of cushioning between it and my skin, then hand stitched it to the top.
Skirt: I made a blue mini skirt using stretch cotton.White feathered trim was dyed blue using turquoise acid dye, then machine stiched to the skirt. A sequined trim, also bought while in NYC, was hand sewn to the top of the skirt.
Anklets: Left over trim from the skirt was glued to matching baby blue ribbon and tied to my ankles
