About this Costume
Construction Details:
This was an extremely difficult costume to make. Luckily, I had a lot of help from Jody of Majikcraft. Getting the pattern for the body took several tries and many revisions, but the head was probably the hardest part. I'd like to re-make the head and improve it someday.
Personal Thoughts:
After Anime Expo 2001, I decided I wanted to do a full-body costume. I was originally thinking I'd do a Pokemon...and then I thought for a while that I'd do a chocobo. In the fall of 2001, I saw an ad for Digimon Tamers while waiting for Transformers to come on. I fell in love with Renamon. I went on IRC and declared that I wanted to do Renamon...without even seeing the show. After watching the show, I fell in love with Digimon Tamers and wanted to have a Renamon costume even more. When Jody cosplayed as Rika, Renamon's tamer, it was the perfect pair. We even got photographed by Jerry Chu of Bandai in front of the Digimon toys at Anime North 2002.

Not only was this character highly visible and highly recognizable giving me A LOT of attention, but it was a lot of fun to wear since nobody knew who was inside. I got a lot of hugs in this costume...and one girl even proposed marriage. (I accepted, but then she ran off to tell her friends.) This is still my favorite costume.

...and yes, I have seen the MacHall web comic about Digimon porn. *sigh*
