About two weeks ago in order to both coincide with the Season 8 finale of RuPaul's Drag Race and to show my support for my pick of the winner, I decided to make a drag outfit for my cat, Oliver, inspired by drag queen Kim Chi.
The photo on the left shows the look I was trying to copy, and the photo on the right is my result!
I wanted to share some photos of my process.
The first time I tried the wig on Oliver, I did it when he was napping.
An early version of the dress pattern.
One of the early fittings.
I initially bought the fabric on the left to use for the dress. But then I encountered the fabric on the right and felt it was a better match to Kim Chi's dress fabric.
This is the final sleeve pattern. Here I am about to cut the lining material. Beach rocks make excellent fabric weights.

The everything.Dress, wig, wig brooch, necklace, bracelets, and false eyelashes.
