Toastersix mentioned doing Deedlit, and asked if I’d be interested in Pirotess. I immediately agreed since it’s been on my to-do list for years, and with such a cute Deedlit, who could refuse! Different artworks of Pirotess portray her in several color variations, ranging from a violent dress with blonde hair to white hair on a tan dress, and all shades of tan. With my friend going with the traditional color palette, I decided to stick with her classic all-white palette as well. The costume came together a lot quicker than I expected, but not without hiccups. The dress was made out of a heavy vinyl and took me a few days to pattern and tailor it, inserting sticky bra cups in order to keep…things…from popping out. My machine dreaded the vinyl so I had to appliqué the gold designs instead of machine stitching like I wanted. The belts were made from pleather, and her armor piece from craft foam and puffy paint. The ears were from YayaHan.com, which I painted to a darker shade. The boots were purchased on Amazon, gloves borrowed from Klytaemnestra, wig provided by Toastersix, and the headpiece made by Yunie. I had some trouble with the tanner around the chest area, combining Sally Hansen and L’Oreal, but it worked out pretty alright for a first wear. Being as tan as from the Caribbean was interesting, and I look forward to a second run of this outfit to fix the problems I had. I’m so glad I had an adorable Deedlit to pose with, more Pirotess outfits may be on the horizon.
