Cell Phone Case for Big Hero 6 Honey Lemon Costume
Approximating the everyday looks of Honey Lemon and Go Go Tomago in Disney’s Big Hero 6 isn’t too hard. You just need to pull the basic colors together to nail the gist of the costumes, and you don’t have to go for screen accuracy unless you really want to. To dress like Honey Lemon, you just need a yellow headband, glasses with large frames, a yellow dress, white leggings, and yellow shoes. Done and done.
Kate, a.k.a. Organized Chaos Costuming, went pretty screen accurate in her Honey Lemon costume – pictured above – and you’ll notice she has a cell phone case just like the character’s. Making a prop like the cell phone case is a great way to tie together a more casual take on the costume or to complete a screen accurate version. Kiki Crafts made the case for Kate and documented the build.
She used craft foam, an old cell phone case (you’ll just need one that fits your phone), Mod Podge, polymer clay, and a few other supplies. She started with a pattern. She magnified a small image of the cell phone case that she found online – reference material will be easier to grab now that Big Hero 6 is on DVD/Blu-ray – and cut out holes for the camera and speaker. Then, she cut the paper pattern from craft foam and carved in the details with a ballpoint pen.
