Fun facts on this costume
I’m going to be honest and say I don’t know much about Eureka, and I mainly did the costume for kicks when I met her voice actor (only the queue was too long and I couldn’t be bothered in the end). It was still a great and entertaining costume to make. It’s the first time I attempted embroidery and while it came out a little wonky, I think it was pretty good for a first try.
My favourite part was the boots, they started off as black shoes and after 2-3 days of a lot of trial and error I was able to lengthen them and completely cover them 🙂 They were a pain, but I can see that making accurate (or close to accurate) shoes really gives the entire costume a lift!
Unfortunately my holster broke off right before we went to the convention, so I decided to leave it at home, as you can see in the photos below. Hopefully I will redo it and plan a proper photo shoot in a more Eureka-like setting.
