About this Costume
Construction Details:
did a full mock up, which ju$tin marked up with a sharpie then turned into a pattern for me in exchange for top stitching all of his gantz stuff!! Sew the body suit together with minimal trouble, then i had to make little prop stuff out of craft foam AND I WANTED TO DIE

made from stretch vinyl. I wish I could have used matte vinyl for all of t but unfortunately they don't make it in many colors. Also the colors I did use were all wrong because vinyl doesn't come in many colors and IT'S VERY FRUSTRATING.
Personal Thoughts:
Eva is without question of my absolute favorite things but have a lot of mixed feelings about 3.0 as of right now (it may change when I see 4.0, who knows), and quite frankly hate Mari??? Besides being good fodder for lesbian porn with Asuka she hasn't really shown me that she matters at all in any way and I just?????????? MA IIR??I?????

I basically made this costume because my boyfriend absolutely loves Mari (???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????/??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????) and I wanted to be plug suit babes with Skye and Mariel. I struggle a lot with costumes that aren't garments you can make in a "proper" way? Which is a major part of the reason I had put off trying to make a plug suit for so long. I can't say I'm very pleased with my results but considering it was my first plug suit I don't think it was terrible. Honestly until I had to start sharpieing and gluing the details on I was pretty happy with the body suit?? Which Ju$tin helped me pattern. Despite not really caring for mari I'm glad she was the first plug suit that I made, because to be perfectly honest if this had been an Asuka costume I would have been beside myself upset with how it turned out. I learned a lot from the experience which hopefully I'll be able to put towards future Asuka costumes!!!!!!
