Kaylee’s Parasol from Firefly

I have fallen behind on my Kaylee costume, because I did not like the way a few things turned out in the end, so I am making a trip to the fabric store this weekend.  The one thing I was super happy with though is my parasol.  This Kaylee’s parasol is very easy and affordable.  I bought I plain white paper parasol and freehand painted the swirls onto it with acrylic paint I already had.  I found another blog post by Mrs. Bighorn Sheep and she used construction paper to lay out the swirls before she painted if you are nervous about freehand painting it. I started with a lighter yellow but ended up going back and changing it, because I felt like it was not bright enough.  Below are the progress pictures showing each swirl.
