|I'm making this cosplay especially to wear for Memorabilia show in November at Birmingham NEC, which MCM group now run. The space babe featured in show advertising for some years. Even though she has been dropped from the new Memorabilia logo she is still iconic and I feel there is much love for her so I'm gonna do my tribute... ^_^ |
I am doing her classic Silver Spacesuit version. (umm without the fish bowl helmet though..cuz I do want to breathe =P)

I Did it! ^__^
Got a few strange looks from the security men as I walked in, but the security women were a lot of fun. They smiled and laughed with me. In fact all the girls I met at the show were fun, there was even a little boob envy going on cuz they liked my boobs so much! =P.
Great day, great fun, very enjoyable cosplay. ^_^
Met Tonyo at the show with his cam. Tonys vid of our meet can be seen on YT, here
Ray gun (Posted 23rd November 2009)
For the ray gun I bought a toy from the pound shop and painted it silver.
Modifying my boots (Posted 20th November 2009)
Today I modified my Silver boots. The calfs were waaay over size for my skinny legs so I decided to try and alter them.
Beginnings - tailoring a Zentai (Posted 1st November 2009)
To make the costume I started with a silver Zentai suit. This was way too baggy for me though so I had to cut out loads of material from the middle seam and the legs and re sew. This meant removing the whole back zip and re-attaching it. This hasn't been easy for me, even with a sewing machine it was really difficult and parts had to be unpicked more than once because of untidy puckering. ¬_¬
