Cosplayer GebGeb > Costume of Asuka Langley Sohryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion
About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- I'm very proud of that costume, it was another cosplay dream :)
Evangelion is one of my very first anime, I think I was around 11-12 years old XD Back then I didn't understand anything of that show but I loved Asuka, she was so entertaining even if she's quite bitchy :P My very first anime figure was Asuka! She means a lot and I finally felt confident in making her.
I used wetlook spandex because I'm not that fond of the way vinyl look on pictures, I wanted to use something different. The black parts are neoprene, this material is messy but I love the way it look! The whole suit was made under 3 weeks, it was the most complicated thing I ever did! Spandex is so hard to sew (Garnet was made with moleskin, that's a dream to sew! I thought spandex was the same...). The worst was sewing the vinyl pipping on the legs, I also need to thank my boyfriend for all the help (he pinned everything on me, drafted the pattern on me, and lot of other things). I also styled the wig all by myself, it was hard I really hate wigs
