Cosplayer Zal > Costume of Haruko Haruhara from FLCL
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The red top is made of pleather. Basic sewing stuff there.
The boots are a white, stretch vinyl that I used to cover a base shoe. I smoothed the edges around the end of the vinyl and shoe using white adhesive caulk.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Holy crap boots! I am waaaaay too proud of these boots. I was determined to not use "hooker boots" or flats (Part of the reason I really wanted to do this costume was because I had yet to see someone do the boots right). I spent a while looking around for the perfect platform and as chance would have it, I found exactly what I needed!
I really liked running around in this costume. It was so comfy and everyone thought it was awesome. :>
Jan 2014 Edit:
HOLY SHIT VESPA!! I'm reeeeeeeaally happy I got the Vespa running for ALA this year. I plan to have better photos later, but there are a few up from the con itself!!
- Styling Notes
- Most of the time was spent trying to get the hair to flip outward using a blowdrier.
