About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The biggest challenge of this costume was how to make it more modest without it looking really cheesy. I've seen a lot of cosplay where people's body suits really took away from the costume. This being said, I took a chance and worked with a bodysuit myself. My intentions were to make the fabric look like my skin, so that people could not tell at first, or even a second glance. Another challenge was the gravity defying hair. I was able to find a plastic cone to 'wrap' my naturally long hair around. With a lot of Aqua Net, I was able to pull it off. I did however have to buy bangs. About three days before Otakon, I began this costume. I made everything in intervals of 2-4 hours of work, for three to four days. I have to say that for the most part everything went pretty smoothly. The first time I wore this outfit I realized a few things. The most important would be the necessity of sewing my costume to the body suit around the breast area. The 'shirt' kept creeping up. I was wearing plenty of padding so I wouldn't expose myself, even if there had been some freak accident. You can see in some of the images below where the 'shirt' should have been lower. I also hadn't gotten a chance to make the body suit look like my skin.
