About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- First off, thanks to Jessie (Rufflebutt) for the pattern! Bunny suits are MUCH more difficult to construct properly than it looks, and a good pattern can make or break it. Having this pattern actually cut out a lot of the time it takes to make one, so she rocks!
I based this costume off of two separate artworks of Lina in a bunny suit - I found the OVA version more tasteful than the NEXT art, so I based most of it off of that instead.
I used a nice red dupioni fabric for the bunny suit, and there are also two other layers to it - lining, and a stiff layer of coutil for the boning channels. I used both spiral and flat steel boning where appropriate.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I always wanted to make a bunny suit - I find them to be really cute and sexy! Lina Inverse is one of my favorite characters by far, probably only second to Vaati, so it gave me the perfect opportunity to make one! This is the first of what I anticipate to be...MANY Lina cosplays.
