About this Costume
Construction Details:

not entirely happy with this costume but i think it's a gainax(ish) thing where the costume changes so much in show that it confuses me and i'm not sure what colors anything should be/proportions are all whacky idk man

but yeah!! the sailor fuku top/bottom is a dark navy cotton sateen which pretty much looks black in the dark and looks navy blue in the light, and since the character designers COULD NOT PICK A COLOR i thought it was a good match!! Knife pleated skirt, and just a plain ol woven top with a detachable via snaps fuku, stripes are bias tape! Sleeves are just a little shorter than I would have normally made them then pulled up to right below my elbows, cuff is on the bias so it stretches just a lil. The eyeball is made out of vinyl, covered in clear vinyl hand sewed to the inside of the fuku and attaches to the shirt with a snap. The eye patch and suspenders and weird pouch things are made from matte vinyl! I bought suspender pieces and made my own suspender situation. The scar on the eye-patch is leather look spandex. Shoes are just supras i bought from taobao. Glove is made from red wet look spandex with a thick ass piece of craft foam under it in the shape I thought i could see on her glove (it need to be altered a bit now that we've gotten clearer shots of it in the show whooppppsss) and the bracelet is thick craft foam layered and covered in the same matching spandex with a strip of leather look spandex in the middle!

Wig is a stand in for when i get my actual ryuko wig (didn't have time cries) and is actually MY MIKASA WIG WHOOPS HAHA with an extension in it! I went at it with some hairspray and a blow drier, unfortunately 5 hours later when we shot it had deflated a bit :U

Generally a pretty easy costume but the suspenders really killed my shoulders. Updated my costume for katsucon, made new boob patch which was worbla covers in matte vinyl, and put little styrene pieces i painted silver on the glove, sharpied lines on and made a lil U shape thing out of craft foam + wood filler which was then painted red and glued onto the glove!!
Personal Thoughts:
wow i remember like 6 months before this show came out skye tweeted a link to the character sheets at me and went THIS IS US WE ARE GOING TO BE THEM OK and i was like sure ok whatever BUT THEN THE FUCKING SHOW CAME OUT AND THE COSTUME MANIFESTED ITSELF ON MY BODY I FUCKING LOVE RYUKO SO MUCH I LOVE SATSUKI SO MUCH I LOVE MAKO EVERYTHING IS PERFECT GOD I JUST
