No Sew Cosplay: Fran Bow


Have you seen my kitty?  His name is Mr. Midnight.

Dress: It took me an immeasurably long time to find a dress that even remotely looks like Fran Bows, but I finally found a similar one that has the perfect collar. Unfortunately, it does have more sleeves to it than Fran’s and does not have the straps on the back but I definitely love the look regardless! If you look at the other color options, it’s easier to see that it has a bow in the middle as well. While it is yellow, you MIGHT be able to use fabric paint to get it to look right. It’s hard to tell though without seeing the item in person.


Bow(?): If you can get the bow of the dress above to look right, you won’t need this at all. But if you do, Fran is wearing a green bow similar to this one which has an alligator clip you could use to attach it. Hers is limp looking and not perfect either. If you get a different dress, it might not be as easy to attach but the one I posted above seems to have different areas a clip could be used. Worse case you could probably use a bobby pin to hold it in place.


Leggings: Fran Bow is wearing a pair of white and black horizontal striped leggings similar to these ones here. The one review on the product is positive, though typically leggings can be rather opaque or run small. These ones I found (pictured below) have the best overall ratings but the stripes aren’t completely matched up on the seams. Bare in mind reviews state that they are pretty thin.


Shoes: For trekking through all those dimensions, Fran wears a pair of short lace up brown boots. It didn’t take me long to find these ones, which are a reasonable price for boots like these and have positive reviews.


Makeup: IhasCupquake uploaded a really good makeup video for Fran Bow that I found that shows you how to get a “sunken eye” look as well as to do the brows and even the blood dripping from the eyes if you prefer that.

Ideas for Props: Why not bring Mr. Midnight with you? Or perhaps fill a jar with what looks like red pills.

I have to find kitty now, bye!
