Fionna the Human
- First worn to MegaCon 2014
- Spent around $30 on the costume
- Worked on this costume for about two weeks
I had been trying to come up with a simple and comfortable costume to wear on Friday of MegaCon. I thought of a few ideas and settled on Adventure Time; it would be something fun that both Trevor and I could wear together. He really is a big fan of the show and I was excited at the thought of dressing up as a little kid.
Trevor had a pair of blue gym shorts that were perfect for this costume, and we used his work boots for the shoes. I purchased the Finn hat from Hot Topic and I got the blue shirt online. The back pack I made using a super awesome tutorial from Silkencat of deviantART, the fabric I used was felt and I just stuffed the bag with extra fabric to fatten it up.
Finn is not complete with out his sword so I decided to go with his current blade and make his grass sword. I made the base of the sword out of card board and I glued that around a dowel rod for support. The cardboard was then covered with paperclay and I sanded it down to be as smooth as possible. Then it was just a matter of painting it with acrylics and adding a glossy varnish.
The Jake plush I ordered online and it attached to the bag with a good old safety pin.
