Cosplayer Ashbrie > Costume of Asuka Langley Sohryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume is mostly 'found materials'. The top is from a dress and it was so perfect--beautiful black velvet and puffy sleeves, yay! I had to cut the satin skirt off (which ended up becoming my Haku bow), and then cut the neckline into the heart-shape and add the ruffles.
The skirt is lined with a bedsheet because lol why not. The satin for the ruffles was found at a thrift store. It wasn't a perfect piece--it had some staining and puckering--but there was JUST enough good fabric on the piece for the costume! Awww yeeeeah!

- Personal Thoughts:
- I made a rather 'meh' version of this costume a few years ago, and always wanted to remake it. I basically stumbled into this costume again after I received a dress from a friend of my mom's that had a gorgeous black velvet top with poofy sleeves--perfect for this costume!
- Styling Notes
- This is my 3rd Asuka wig, and I always wanted one with BIG volume. So, I used a Le Tigre and 2 straightened curly clips to accomplish the look I wanted!
