About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- One of my first costumes. A 100% store-bought, no stitching involved excuse for cosplay. The most challenging part was making my waist-length hair appear to be short-cropped. All hail PhotoShop.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Constructed: Fall 1999 What? You think I should I kill myself trying to sew it up when all the pieces are sitting around, ready to wear, in various gothling/teeny-bopper shops all over the country? Like I just fell off the turnip truck! But that's beside the point.... I think we were all sold on Trinity as soon as we saw her pull the "fly kick". ^_^ Everything after that was just gravy. Or perhaps I speak just for myself. It started with the boots, since I found the perfect pair lying about in Mom's closet longing for attention. (Yes, they're older than I am. So what?) I found the jacket at J.C. Penny of all places. I purchased the pants on Ebay and the vinyl tank top from Trashy.com. (Charming name, no? o_0;) And after doing all this looking for vinyl "fetish wear", let me tell you I will never think of myself as odd again! There are some freaky people out there! Woo! I don't even want to talk about some of things I saw... 0_o;
