Cosplayer Thia > Costume of Tycho Science from Gunbuster 2
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made this to match Cifera and Sapphire's costumes as closely as I could with only photos for reference! This was one of those costumes where each small individual element was fairly simple but when dealing with them all together it was a bit of a pain -- however, I couldn't be happier with the results!
I drafted the bodysuit pattern myself. It's made of knit fabric and is a separate piece from the undershirt as it is in the show and has button straps which you can't see underneath the collar. The silver leg cuffs/chest trim are vinyl and it has the various details unique to Tycho's uniform (piping, buttons, bows).
Collar is cotton sateen with applique, gloves were bought, I dyed the thigh highs, boot details are vinyl and foam, earrings made out of clay, choker is just a black velvet ribbon.
The Fraternity patches were made by the amazing Dehlia Designs, who I owe a big thank you to for getting them to me when I was in a time crunch!
- Personal Thoughts:
- screams because Diebuster is one of my favorite animes ever and this group finally happened after two years of planning. Seriously a dream come true and one of the best moments I've had in cosplay so far. I love my friends.
