Cosplayer kataimiko > Costume of Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This was a pretty straight forward costume. I have always been a huge fan of GitS, specifically episode #12 from 2nd GiG: "IN: Kusanagi's Labyrinth – AFFECTION" The jacket was drafted from partially from an old highly altered jacket pattern. The white leotard is an altered Capezio dance leotard. White pants are an altered pair of Express white dress slacks. I had to make them into some super skinny jeans, and added saddle loops to the bottoms so they don't bunch up horribly when I put on my boots. My boots were purchased via eBay (I got a flippin' awesome deal on them.) They are stealth combat boots and have side zippers on them.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I hate working with pleather. Seriously...working with it sucks.
