Wow!  So sorry I'm late here.  I actually revealed my costume on October 29th and then wore it again the next few days.  Sadly it wasn't as recognizable as I would have hoped; however, the few who did recognize it made me ecstatic. 

So here's the full size:

If you didn't guess it yet, here's a side by side:

That's right kids, I was Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6.  Kind of obscure but I think I nailed it.  I even had the bag (not pictured).  That's Hiro in my pocket.

Here's a selfie with Baymax in Harajuku:

To make the sweater I used Vogue 9698.  It's a vintage (80s) pattern which I had originally purchased to make a different costume.

I lengthened it a little bit and narrowed the sleeves considerably. 

To make the dress I used Simplicity 1609:

And I totally cheated and used knit so I wouldn't have to sew in a zipper.  I also shortened the hem.

The remaining accessories leggins, shoes, bag, and socks were purchased from eBay.  Baymax and Hiro are from Amazon.

I'm sad to see Halloween go but the wheels are already spinning for next year.
