So technically this was a Halloween costume(Last years)... but I thought I'd post it here as it is a "cosplay" costume as well! Was intended to be worn to Anime north also (made it big so it would still fit) but unfortunately DD ended up being Ill and we couldn't go!
For my daughters first Halloween (she was 7 months old) I decided she needed a Unique costume that would double as her Con/cosplay outfit also... and decided to make her a Moogle- since I'm a Final Fantasy fanatic. I had a hard time choosing between a Moogle and a Chocobo- but figured the moogle was easier so that's what I decided on.
The costume is made from a white/cream Fleece (micro? I think...) and is made from an altered Simplicity pattern (don't know which pattern off the top of my head though) the wings are also made of fleece and stuffed with batting - and the detailing is stitched. The hat is made from the same fleece as the "jumpsuit/sleeper" and I added a wired tube and attached one of those balls from her ball pit to it to mimic the moogles "pompom".
Now I just need to decide what she should be this Halloween!
anyhow without further ado here it is- DD is of course the model!
A lil' something my hubby made me from the pictures we took of her
Sorry the pics aren't the greatest as they were while we were out on halloween/celebrating at home
