Shirt - In order to make the shirt, I took my Green Pepper "Crystal Lake" Skating Pattern with sleeves and modified the leotard into a shirt. I used a navy blue knit fabric that offered a decent amount of stretch in both directions.

Bandages - The bandaged were made by taking a light weight curtain material and ripping it across the grain. The fabric tears very nicely and doesn't fray easily so there is not need for fray check. The forearm bandaged just required one length of the fabric while the thigh armour required two lengths sewn together and the chest bandages required three lengths sewn together. The fingers would be taped using surgical tape.
Shoes - The shoes are actually slippers with a shoe cover sewn over them. I chose a light blue coloured slipper from Walmart as my base and drafted the shoe cover by measuring my foot and drawing out the pattern. The pattern had a interesting design which required multiple parts to be sewn together. I used a seam allowance of 1.5 cm which normally works out but this time it was a little too tight. Next time I will use a seam allowance of 2 cm. Some of the pieces had to be sewn by hand as the machine couldn't get into the really right corners. The entire shoe cover was then sewn onto the slipper. The cover extended up the ankle and laces up in front.
