Knights of Sidonia cosplay help

Post by chemicalapples » Sun Jan 10, 2016 12:50 pm

For my next project, I want to cosplay Shizuka Hoshijiro from Knights of Sidonia: ... =383742026

The only problem is I have no idea where to start! There aren't any tutorials out there and I have no idea what kind of material I would use for this suit, never mind a pattern either...

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreaciated. :)

Well for starters your best bet is to get a body suit and paint it, I'd look into to various Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplay tutorials because they have similar suits called plugsuits.
For the pieces sticking off her shit I would probably once again look into what Evangelion cosplayer do. Maybe foam with fabric over it, or some warbla like material.
For her wig you are most likely gonna have to cut it yourself, there are plenty of wig styling tutorials on YouTube. I recommend & for wigs, they will be in the thirties but they are definitely worth it.
For her boots I'd go with making boot sleeves/covers. There are so many ways to make boot covers so when you look for tutorials make sure to check multiple.

On my pinterest I have a board full of cosplay tutorials and ideas that I'm constantly updating. There are multiple boot cover tutorials, wig styling tutorials and makeup tutorials too.
Hope this helps and isn't too late : )
