Cosplayer WindoftheStars > Costume of Nia Teppelin from Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
I was one of those crazy people that decided to make this a few weeks before AX 2010. With obviously not enough time to have a body suit made and shipped for me I went ahead a made my own. Surprisingly it wasn't that hard to make! I used a metallic black spandex for the body suit which has a nice vinyl like shine but isn't has hard to work with or wear as vinyl! I really loved the material. Once the body suit was done I used chalk to draw the designs and then painted them with fabric paint. Blue bits were vinyl and wear either sewn or glued on. Shoes were just painted but are too small so I'll need to buy new one. Wig is the same as the one I used for my other Nia.
- Personal Thoughts:
- The boyfriend had dropped a few... not-so-subtle hints that he wanted me to do this costume. Also when I found out that Saku was wearing Starboobs that kind of sealed the deal. I find it funny that I got around to making a second Nia before making a second Yoko. lol Overall this costume isn't too bad to wear. The shoes are killer and being in a full body suit is a little awkward. In short I like this costume!
