Day Glow Jester completed!





























By the end of Day 4, I actually had a wearable costume! It took about 28 hours with taking only half hour breaks to eat or run to the store. At least now I have a suit to start from so I can make some modifications. I'll probably design my own booties for Harley. I have to adjust the diamonds especially on the butt. I'm still trying to figure out what to do for the white cuffs. In these pictures, I just used some spare white trim from my Harley inspired tote bags. I'd like to round the bottoms more on the white neck piece too. The horns ended up pointing backwards too far.

Things I was really happy about where how I actually got the 4 corners of alternating color to line up in the front and the back. The hood zipper was a pain but the back zipper is the best zipper installation I've ever done. Of course I couldn't find too many color choices though so I went with white. For the sake of speed, I appliqued the diamonds on this one but I'll give gluing a shot with the next one.

Hey, great log of making this. It's useful to me to know how long it took you; people are always asking me how long it takes. I can do one in about 15 hours these days, but my first one took like a month. I think I went through 3 drafts of the hood pattern, and of course the first time I cut out the black/red on the wrong side.

Live and learn, eh? ;-)

Hi I was just wondering where you found a pattern for this, or was it a free style costume?

Sorry for a terrible delay! Google doesn't give notifications when comments are waiting. I had no idea I had things sitting in comments to be approved. This jester pattern was purchased from Holly Messenger on etsy. She sells patterns that she's worked out for Harley Quinn and she now has a Wonder Woman pattern too which is even more advanced.
