Cosplayer Shiki > Costume of Yoko Littner from Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Hardest part? Making the belt... more like it just hurt a lot. Messiest? Making the flames go on the top.. you definitely need more than one set of hands to effectively get fabric adhesive to the applique without getting it everywhere else including all over your hands. Easiest? Scarf. Favorite part? Making my own shorts pattern custom for my butt. 4-way stretch metallic vinyl is great. Least favorite? The gloves were a mess. I ordered a pair that were actually misrepresented in the photograph and I had to remove buttons, sew up the back, and the seams were sewn so poorly it just kept falling apart. I now am in the process of making new ones, so far so good. -Update- I made new ones, and my wrists and stuff are so small/arms skinny that I'm thinking I still need to find better ones or make them from scratch (which could be a nightmare). Gun was originally given to me from a friend who was in the process of making a new one. So I just fixed the structure & repainted it a few times with spray paint and then hand painted the details like the melting white skull.
- Styling Notes
- Bought on ebay, very nice quality; a lot of upkeep because of the length and very heavy to wear. I just needed to trim the bangs and side pieces.
