It is time to sew-along for Project Run and Play! This week's theme is Cosplay Challenge. If you know me...you know I would not miss this fun challenge ;) But here is a surprise...no, I did not sew a princess dress! I made a dress based on the robot Baymax, from Big Hero 6!
Big Hero 6 is one of Momo's and my favorite movies. We did not see it in the theater, but I got the DVD/Blu-ray as soon as it came out. And we were hooked...especially Momo. We let her watch movies on weekends if she has been a good girl for the whole week. And she insisted on watching Big Hero 6 on every weekend for 3 months straight... I thought I saw the end to her princess stage ;D I believe Momo had a crash on the Hamada brothers...she used to say Tadashi (the older brother) was so handsome...though she denies saying so now ;)
So I had this idea of making the Baymax dress for a while. I sewed a fleece Belinda Dress about a year ago, and knew it would be perfect as the Baymax dress. I wanted that extra volume and cozy feel of fleece, so had to wait for the colder season. And when the winter finally came...I was too busy to sew it. But the PR&P's sew-along motivated me to finally getting this project done. I knew I was going to be busy this week, so finished it on Saturday night...with no sleep. But it does feel good to get a "to-sew" project done!
So this is Belinda Dress in size 5T, with 3 inches added to the length (1 inch to the bodice, and 2 to the skirt). I skipped the pocket option.
I also made the simple fleece hat, but the fit is not quite right. It is good enough for a dress-up play, but if Momo wants to wear it to outside, I will need to make a new one with better fit.
Momo already owned a pair of store-bought white fleece leggings, so I did not make those.
I can fly!
I also know Karate!
So here is my huggable Baymax, cute little (giant) pumpkin. I just want to hug her and hug her, but she does not see how cute she looks. I fail to see, how she fails to see, that she is so cute!!! I am screaming like Hiro...you would know if you have seen the movie ;)
Linking up to those fun parties.
