Cosplayer CelestialShadow19 > Costume of Cutey Honey from Cutey Honey
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made this entire costume by hand using an overstock of metallic dance lycra. Originally I had bought this material for another costume but when that idea fell through I racked my head for another costume I could make with all the extra remnants. I have already done one version of cutey honey before but it was her animated flash version for the tv series so I wanted to re approach the costume again from another angle. Hajime Sorayama created this beautiful statue art of her that I wanted to replicate. Her costume colors are a bit different in his version, being red silver and gold instead of blue and yellow and she has a fencing epee instead of a saber. I hand drew the pattern for this on computer paper. Making this costume want too difficult but the material was a bit fragile so I couldnt make it as form fitting as I wanted without the fear of ripping seams if I did any action poses. I wore a flesh tone leotard underneath too to protect my modesty and also to hide the fact that I am wearing falsies underneath. The epee i made from a half foam ball, clay handle and metal dowl. The boots are a recycled pair of equestrian steam punk boots I had intended to donate but kept them thankfully and repainted them gold to match the costume.
