So I am working on making a costume of Him, from powerpuff girls.
I need tips on where to go/what to buy to make it as accurate as possible.

I can do some sewing but I am not too great and I have a budget of under 200 dollars, but I am hoping to get almost everything from a thrift store.

How are you making the claws? Like... um.. oven mitts? It would be really awesome if they could open and close.
...Are you a boy or a girl by the way? Because the joy of the character Him is his utter androgyny.

Here is a picture of a Him from Anime North 2012! It looks like they've used felt for the claws.

Ooh! I am hoping on being able to craft some from foam and cover them with felt, but who knows what I will end up doing? THey are tricky to make just right.

Sounds like a great idea! The only thing that sounds a little difficult is the claws. I feel like a harder material would work rather than felt. I feel like the felt would lose it shape pretty easily. Maybe this tutorial will give you some ideas on what to do?

Again it sounds like a great idea, I bet it'll look cool when its done.
