Pattern for Disgust from Disney’s Inside Out
I apparently have an affinity to either red haired or green skinned characters.
…what’s up with that?
Either way, let’s continue the tradition of A to Z Pattern Picks by discussing my pattern choice for Disgust from Disney’s Inside Out.
Inside Out was an amazing movie, especially to those of us who have dealt with depression. To see the internal struggle played out in that animated kind of way was essentially a revelation.
To bring one of these characters to life has been in the back of mind ever since I watched the movie. So, let’s start with Disgust!
McCall’s M6887 Pattern for Disgust
In a recent pattern sale that included all McCall’s patterns for $1.99 a piece, the M6887 pattern stood out as a perfect dress for Disgust.
Changes to the Pattern
Dress A looks perfect from the front, however, it has a weird cut out thing going on in the back. You’re better off going with Dress B and going without the sleeves (looking at how dress A handles it in the instructions).
Also, Disguest has a V neck to her dress, which is essentially easy to add into this pattern. Just cut it into a V inside of the curve. (in addition…this dress would be great for Joy as well…without the V neck alteration).
Finding the perfect green to go along with whatever wig or tights your purchase for this outfit will be the hardest endeavor. However, looking at the reference, I did figure out the best color from it. Randomly, my nephew has been working on his baby’s nursery and mentioned that the main color was a green called Celadon. After looking, this ended up being a perfect fit. Here’s a cotton celadon fabric for purchase.
As for the pattern on her dress…don’t be too worried about trying to find a fabric like that..Make it easy on yourself. My plan would be to do the cute little flowers on it with fabric puff-paint. You’ll only need two colors and to make a template to follow. Easy-peazy!
The Accessories Needed
- Green Wig
- Green Tights – opaque and down to your mid-calf
- Purple scarf – just make one from fabric and tie it around your neck
- Purple flats – you could probably make these pretty easily, if you’re into that sort of thing, otherwise, these would work great.
- Green Body Paint – I prefer to use Mehron for most things. Check out my post about going green.
- Crazy eye lashes – you can probably add additional glitter yourself, but they need to be kinda crazy all on their own lol.
Hope this little walk through helped! Happy Cosplaying!
