Betty Cooper – River Vixen | Riverdale
Made for : A winter cosplay gathering
Background : I was very much in to Riverdale at this point in my life and constantly swooning over Jughead. I’m not that much of a fan of everyday clothes costumes so I opted to make the River Vixens cheerleader outfit as it’s ICONIC.
Things used :
- Simplicity 3689
- Blue polar fleece
- White polar fleece
- Yellow polar fleece
- White merino
- Black felt
I made the entire outfit using Simplicity 3689. I know I modded the pleats in the skirt to make them accurate to the show.
I used polar fleece for the majority of the outfit because I was wearing this in the dead of winter. It made it quite tricky to sew in some parts where there were several layers of fleece sitting atop one another.
I made the megaphone from felt and the ‘R’ from fleece. I satin stitched along the edges to make them look like appliques.
The turtleneck was made from a soft merino wool.
