About a month ago I posted a look at an in-progress Big Hero 6 Honey Lemon costume. Replica Props Forum user Mitcheg1 started working on the project about two months ago for his daughter, and she recently wore it to the Orlando Science Center. When we last checked in, he had the dress done and the helmet mostly done. He added a motorcycle helmet visor to the helmet. Here’s how he made Honey Lemon’s unique purse:
I made a lot of progress on the purse. It’s basically a foam structure with a 3mm foam outer shell. I used piping and hem for the edge details and ping pong balls will be sprayed with a translucent paint to create the look of Honey’s purse.
He also finished the chest armor that fits over the dress and the shoes. I’m not sure if I want to craft the whole costume, but I do want to come up with a more casual, everyday design for the purse.
