Kaylee Cosplay  
So interesting story. I'd put together a Kaylee outfit as my "comfortable" wear, book-ending my actual costume for a competition at an anime convention.

Kaylee got WAY more requests for photo ops than the actual anime character I went as. I love my fandom.







I'm really hoping to find that picture someone took of me and a WONDERFUL House. Had the cane and the bottle of pills and everything! Told him I had a thing for cranky doctors~.

Because I know the question's been asked, yes, that's the shirt from the pilot, the Karen Kane shirt, and I found it through a random search for Karen Kane stuff on ebay. Got lucky. Be patient and I'm sure another will pop up! There are also a lot of really nice, colorful knit shirts to be found that work just as well.

This is so Shiny!
I'm still on the lookout for a karen kane shirt but I got a nice Chico's shirt in the meantime.

Question:
How long were you looking before you found the shirt?
I'm Your Huckleberrytheguiltyone on February 23rd, 2011 01:49 am (UTC)
About a month.
briannehbrianneh on February 23rd, 2011 02:02 am (UTC)
ah good, then hopefully I'll find something in the next week LOL!

Where did you find it? It's perfect!

Another quick question...
When did you find the shirt? Recently?
I'm Your Huckleberrytheguiltyone on March 18th, 2011 01:46 am (UTC)
I'd say around December was when I found it.
briannehbrianneh on March 18th, 2011 01:53 am (UTC)
Well, hopefully another one comes up soon. I've been stalking ebay since you posted this thread.

Can you do a huge huge huge favor and snap a picture of the tag information and post it? I am trying to get in contact with Karen Kane's Corporate Office, and since I work in retail, having all the information possible would be amazing, because sometimes tags have UPC numbers....

Perhaps a few letters urging them to recreate this shirt from a few people will restart manufacturing procedures, since corporate offices for fashion keep files of pattern orders and style SKU's in case copyright infringement via another company ever happens, it's very possible with enough requests, or even one request, that they can order the shirts production.

It would be a huge help to have a picture of the tag on the inside of the shirt as well if it still has one.

also: Fucking amazing costume!!!!

I really like this idea...I've been thinking about contacting the corporate office myself.

There's only the tag on the inside:

Cut: 10078 A
Style: 1N82204

The rest is all more or less unreadable.

Hi! You look great! My question is about your green jumpsuit- did you make it or buy it (or alter a base)? I've been looking to make several costumes including a jumpsuit-type layer (including Kaylee) and haven't found a good one yet.
