Fionna the Human, Cosplay~ Ears and Tee Review

In celebration of 'con- season', which we are in the midst of in California, I put together this cute Adventure Time, Fionna, inspired cosplay that I wore recently to a local comic themed bar crawl.
My outfit was loosely based on this outfit Fionna the human wore in this above sketch.
This was my outfit looks together~
Tee from Skreened
Skirt from American Apparel
Socks from American Apparel
Shoes from Bakers

 Pink haired Fionna, haha~ But, I decided to go for a more 'everyday' wear look than a full on mimic of the outfit. It fit my style much more, but to do that, I needed a pair of ears that would still give the iconic Fionna silhouette but not as bulky, to keep it more on the subtle side~
Keeping that in mind, I contacted tinytangerines, on etsy, to see if it were possible to order a custom pair of her well known crochet ear warmers.
 And after the most pleasant conversation, it was easily and quickly finalized!
It's actually a modified version of a pair of ear warmers in stock based on Finn the Human [located here].
The ear warmers were completed and shipped out within a week!
They came beautifully packaged and in gorgeous condition! The ear warmers are so very well made, and I can see why I see so many reviews raving about her products~
The ears stand up beautifully, and the whole piece feels very secure, no slipping around my head at all. The band is tied near the nape of the neck, and can fit any sized head or accommodate around any hair style, which is just wonderful!

Like, really, I can't sing enough praises on how great the customer service I received was though~ It just really stood out over any direct seller contact I've had over the years.
 On to the tee shirt for the look..
I got it from Skreened, an online retailer that enables users to upload their own images onto shirts for orders to anyone interested.
The design I found was a good replica of the top I needed for my costume [located here].
The print is well done, and very crisp. The shirt itself is SUPER SUPER soft, seeing as it's from American Apparel. The fit is a bit boxy, as it is a unisex tee, but though I feel a boxy tee can be unflattering it does look pretty cute tucked into a high waisted skirt!
For those who are interested, I normally wear a size medium [6-8 US] dress and I ordered the shirt in a size small. The fit is quite good, pretty loose and breezy, but enough fit to keep the tee from looking too baggy on my frame. I actually love using the top as a pajama because it's just so comfortable. Though, if it were available, I would probably wish for an extra small size..

Overall, I am super satisfied with all my purchases, and it all together gave me such a cute look!
I was happy to finally be able to dress as one of my favourite characters of all time, and to do it in a way that looked fresh and fit my personality quite well!

[Just a small add in, the American Apparel socks are REALLY long/high. They go all the way up to my butt with room to fold... I am 5'3". If I plan to re-wear the outfit, I will be looking into another brand of over the knee socks, so if anyone plans to buy a pair, keep in mind they might fit someone taller better..]



  1. Your cosplay is adorable! I don't really watch Adventure Time but I've seen a few episodes and I can definitely understand why people think it's hilarious.

    Thanks for introducing me to Skreened! There's so many online images that I've love to make shirts out of and now I know where to go!

    Have fun at the con! I can't wait for our local one in August.

  2. Such a cute outfit haha :) and your hair is amazing like always<3

  3. AHHH, FIONA! I love this so much and you are the absolute cutest :) I always always look forward to the special Fiona and Cake episodes, because it's always so fun and interesting how every character is spinned-off.
