My Fluttershy project is officially underway! It took forever to cut everything out since I decided to underline it. I also had to make a trip to JoAnn’s because I ran out of fabric, I hadn’t decided to underline it when I first bought it. It was raining and I nearly had a bad fall when I stepped off their rug and onto their highly polished floor. Forgot I was wearing my suicide flip flops. They must be in line for some insurance money because that’s not the first time they’ve tried to do me in. Homicidal footwear aside the first phase went pretty well. Here’s a shot of my very first underlined pattern piece. Terribly exciting, I know!
I couldn’t find any suitable shoes to paint at the thrift stores so I turned to eBay. I found tons of cutie-poo shoes but they were all shipping from China and my event is in less than two weeks. I ended up finding these Soda shoes in the US and they’re already yellow. I have another pair of Soda shoes and I like them pretty well so maybe these won’t rub my heel through to the bone. I hope they aren’t too bright.
I guess I can quit being cryptic about Fluttershy now. I just don’t want it to be copied before I even get to finish it myself lol. I was trying to decide what would make a nice Fluttershy dress and I had recently done Alice in Wonderland so a crossover popped into my head. I had no idea Fluttershy in Wonderland was already a thing. I don’t look at much brony stuff so that’s not surprising. Even so, I didn’t see where anyone had done the actual costume so I came up with this design. Now it’s just a race to get done by my event date!
