Alright time for a new project! I’m going to make this adorable little girl into a vicious protector of the forest!

Whose doesn’t love the idea of a Chibi Princess Mononoke running around growling at people right? So I’ve spent the last week gathering images and researching materials. This isn’t for a cosplay competition it’s for a two year old. So I’m not going for completely accurate, going for comfort, cuteness and affordable. So these are the materials I have picked up to work with.

  • Fur – Cloak
  • Blue Material – Dress
  • Tshirt – Tunic
  • Socks – boots
  • Fun Foam – mask/ earrings
  • Clay – necklace
  • War paint – Facepaint
  • Head/arm bands – baby elastic

I went Joann Fabrics, Michael’s Crafts and Daddy’s old tshirt drawer. It always helps to keep cost down by using all the coupons you can. Joann’s actually will take competitors coupons always a nice tip to know. This is why it tends to take me a bit to acquire all the materials I intend to use. Being a mother of three dragons erpp… I mean kids. My goal is always to do this at a reasonable price.

Next round I’ll start mock assembling everything and making “blueprints” before I actually start doing any real work. Then slowly start putting it all together, until then seeya next time!
