Fook Mi - Austin Powers by yayacosplay Fook Mi - Austin Powers by yayacosplay
This is one of my older costumes but I still love it! I wore it last while visiting London, Uk and Brian did a photoshoot with me in Piccadilly Circus (Hello, real British phone booths and police box!)

Construction wise, I had sooo much fun with this one! Making the tie and skirt was interesting since I had no patterns to go with, but the most time-consuming (and expensive) part of this costume was gathering all of the accessories, finding a right sweater to alter (since knit blue fabric is impossible to find) and creating the wig. I spent a few weeks scouting shops and malls for British-themed accessories and silly jewelry and decided on a Hello Kitty theme as well to go with the trendy schoolgirl. The wig was sewn and cut according to ref. pictures, and I used human hair extensions that were dyed blue/red.
I really had no time to make the backpack the con I originally wore this to, so I bought a cute Hello Kitty bag and embellished the hell out of it. Since then I've grown too attached to my cute little pink bag so I just kept using it.

I wanna mention that I get more commission requests for this costume than ANY of my other outfits! Like, hundreds over the years. I did make another Fook Mi costume for a customer once, but these days I just don't have time to do full costume commissions anymore. I am sorry!
