While not a product of CGS Unit, I wanted to share another “crafty” project. For this year’s Halloween costume (and for cosplay at every convention I ever attend in the future haha), I decided it was finally time to make Kaylee’s jumpsuit.
There are plenty of blog posts across the net with helpful step of the process, but I found that many were outdated and linked to dozens of products/websites/etc. that no longer exist. I found Maggie’s Costume Site most helpful, since it collects tons of great reference photos. I won’t reproduce that content here.
Instead, I’ll list all the places I bought parts from, which I’ll hopefully try to keep track of broken links as time passes.
Purchased from: http://www.myjumpsuit.com/asseonsanili.html
Alterations: cut off the sleeves, resewed the hem, removed a front pocket.
Purchased from: http://www.kohls.com, Sag Harbor Printed Knot-Front Top
(Any flowery, pink/purple shirt works, especially with 3/4 sleeves)
- Work Boots
Purchased from: http://www.kohls.com, 2 Lips Too Too Fixate Ankle Boots
(Any black work boots — or purple flip-flops for the classic pilot episode look)
Purchased from: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/12fe/
(I wasn’t planning to get one, but it was $10 at the time)
— bear: http://www.etsy.com/shop/DressyJessie

Alterations: ironed on heart, sewed on flower and bear.

No purchases for these, but used this reference for the three sets. See pictures below, along with the finished product!
