About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- ******AMAZING SCISSOR SWORD MADE BY CERULEANDRACO CONTACT HIS PUNK ASS IF YOU WANT ONE 180$ PLUS SHIPPING WHOOOOO*****
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.
