Cosplayer NyuNyu > Costume of Asuka Langley Sohryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I started with a pink T-shirt from JoAnns. (Yes, a premade shirt is cheaper than knit fabric!) I cut into it and hemmed it again with some interfacing so it didn't totally stretch out. The black and red designs were traced out and cut from heat transfer vinyl, and ironed out. (This is the greatest stuff ever for lazy costumes, or any costumes, really!) I found the leotard on Ebay. The high cut leotard is actually from the manga version. They are barefoot in the show, but I wear red flats for the convention.
I already had the wig and sync clips from my Asuka plgusuit.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Drinking outfit...YES!
- Styling Notes
- Trimmed the bangs and pulled sections up to put the synch clips on. The top is nice and thick so I didn't need wefting to do any of this. I used the Cospa sync clips from Hobby Link Japan.
- Wig Review
- This wig is GORGEOUS but I marked it down because the cap is super small. Buyer beware if you have a typical to larger size head. :( My head is not that big and I've NEVER had this problem before. I can't pull it up in front of my ears because the front of the wig won't come far enough down.
