Cosplayer Cheetos > Costume of Kasumi from Dead or Alive 5
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made this costume two weeks before Dragon Con immediately following Otakon. The bodysuit is formed in two pieces, the leggings and leotard. I patterned the outift using a unitard/catsuit sloper and broke it down into the upper and lower portions. I used a leather look spandex (matte metallic spandex) and felt it was very effective for this project. The corded piping is hand made with the same spandex and an elastic cord.
The armor is constructed of worbla and craft foam. I used spray paint and bottled acrylic to give it color. The katana is a wooden prop purchased on Amazon.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This was easily my favorite costume addition to Dead or Alive 5. Kasumi's C3 alternate was modeled after her appearance in the Ninja Gaiden 3:RE. I didn't allot myself very much time to execute this costume, but I am very happy with the result given my time constraints.
