Along with her sisters Bubbles and Blossom, Buttercup is a member of the super hero team The Powerpuff Girls. They are just your average everyday preschoolers, fighting crime and saving the world all before bedtime. Made of sugar, spice and everything nice Buttercup is certainly the embodiment of the spice! Buttercup is the toughest fighter, she is quick tempered and always willing to solve problems with her fists.
I have always loved Powerpuff Girls! When I was younger my favourite was Bubbles, but as I got older I grew to love Buttercup more and more. She is just so feisty! This is one of the few costumes I have made that was done using a pattern. We decided a pattern was a good idea so Paper-stars, Uta and I could make sure our dresses were all actually the same. Basically all we did to alter the patterns was change the neckline from a v-neck to a rounded neck. Because this was done with a pattern this dress only took me about an hour.. or at least it should have.. it took me an hour the first time.. which I screwed up by sewing the skirt panels together in the wrong order. Then it took me about THREE HOURS to rip out the lines of stitching for what ultimately ended up being a fifteen minute sewing fix. If only I had put all the pieces together before finished all the seams properly. Ripping out finished seams is an insanely big job. Other than the dress I REALLY love the wig! I could not believe it when I found that wig. It was just so incredibly perfect!
