About this Costume
Construction Details:
Who doesn't love a good ol' Thrift Store cosplay? I figured I'd throw this outfit together since 08th/UC Gundam always needs more cosplay love and I'm not awesome enough to make her normal suit yet. It's a pretty comfortable and easy thing to wear, though the shirt is deceivingly hot due to being some 80's polyester experiment. Still this has become my default "I'm too tired/lazy/etc to put on anything else" cosplay because hot shirt or not I don't have to bind! And I gotta' represent UC, since sometimes I'm the only one who does at some events :/

Styling Notes
For some reason I ended up with the Jesus of Elora wigs, because unlike what I usually hear happens when you try to dye them this thing sucked up the dye like a magnet. So much that it was too dark when it dryed, and I had to spend an hour or so patting it with rubbing alcohol soaked paper towels to remove enough of the dye to get it looking right.
