Costume no. 1 from this year's San Diego Comic-Con! My bud Aidan set up a Scott Pilgrim group for this year, so I quickly hopped on board as Kim- I have a pretty natural scowl so it seemed like a good fit.
I went with the Chaos Theatre dress
just because it's so absolutely absurd
, and it's a nice stand-out costume that looks more distinct than her various jacket/skirt getups. It pained
me to buy all the hideous trim and rick-rack to make this screen-accurate, but what the hell! It was worth it.
The one big change I made to the costume was morphing the on-screen laced shirt to an actual shirt + boned corset combination- a compromise to make the costume a little less frumpy and a little more wearable. Otherwise, everything's pretty spot on- I even layered a ton of trim to match her skirt hem, and I'm pretty proud of the result. No matter how ridiculous.
