Cosplayer Chiko > Costume of Cloe Walsh from No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I decided to make this costume after playing NMH2 and liking Cloe Walsh's design. I had the shoes left over from my Bad Girl costume and I thought, "eh why not". I really wanted to cosplay another NMH boss since their designs kick ass. I will probably do more in the future.
I bought the fishnet bodysuit, everything else was hand made by me. The straps were two layers on PVC vinyl stitched together and pinned around my form eaxctly. I drafted the bottom from scratch and made it out of PVC vinyl as well. I wanted to make sure all the buckles and the hoop in the back were accurate. The red shoe straps were all painstakingly sewn from red pleather and had stubs hammered on top. The shackles were made from insulation foam and craft foam covered in primer and metallic spray paint. The chain was reused from my Poison costume, it's heavy duty stuff from the hardware store!
The first few times I wore this I used a red wig I constructed myself from wefts I bought. Recently I just use my real hair since it's now long enough and I keep it a nice shade of flamin' red.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Honestly, the tattoos are the biggest pain on this costume. I never have been able to have them for a photoshoot, even though I've printed expensive tattoo paper twice! Otherwise it's a lot of fun to wear only vinyl straps and a fishnet bodysuit. There's layers of dance tights underneath, but the illusion is very naked. I only just recently wore it to a con and outside of a photoshoot.
And Honestly, I just really liked those rainbow nails...
