|WHEEEY! 1.5 years later this costume is finished (That's a complete and utter lie but hushhhhhh, it's been worn to a con at least :P).|
Not gonna lie, Asuka's not my favourite character from Evangelion, Kaworu is!! But I love Asuka too; she's ginger and part German, what's not to love!?
I don't like the colour yellow so I went with a cream colour instead. It was originally for a Mitsuki (Full Moon O Sagashite) costume but I decided not to do it any more.
The bodice is double layered as the fabric is polycotton sheeting, it's rather see through in a light colour when it's that fitted. I already did this part from Mitsuki though so less effort for me!
Skirt was a circle skirt. The fabric was already cut so I had to savage it by drawing out four curved trapezium like shapes to create a circle skirt.
Wig was bought from an eBay seller called Wig Fever.
Sync clips are made from barrettes I bought from Boots and covered in Model Magic. Then painted using acrylic paint.
I did mention this isn't actually complete... I'm missing the choker (I've made it but lost it when it came to Ayacon as I was initially going to wear the school uniform... But as soon as I found the missing sun dress I wanted to wear this instead finally), red shoes and straps for the dress. Mainly because my mum found the dress whilst looking through bags 1-2 days before Aya, soooo yeah, there's my excuse. Bad excuse, I know, but I'm just glad I've finally worn this at a con!

Wig cut (Posted 9th July 2011)
Not much progress trolololol. BUT IT'S SOMETHING.
Yeah, basically cut in a fringe. I want to cut in some side bangs to frame my face better but Asuka doesn't have any ;^; When I wear this wig for Shirley I'll cut some in and I will be happy again~
Time Taken: 10mins XD
26/12/2009 - More dress progress (Posted 26th December 2009)
Wow, it has apparently been a whole month since I worked on this! Doesn't seem that long ago tbh xD;;
This time round I have pictures and have done the modifications I said I would do in my previous entry.
Cannot be bothered to sew on the straps - because that would involve fishing around fabric piles to look for spare yellow fabric which I cannot be bothered to do :'D
Time Taken - 1hr 30mins
P.S. Please excuse the mess on the table, haven't tidied up from Christmas yet >o>;;
26/11/2009 - Dress (Posted 26th November 2009)
Well well well, I decided to do some sewing again. The bulk of yellow fabric was annoying me, so I decided to hack it up and turned it into a simple dress. Because the fabric is rather thin I had to double layer the torso, thankfully I had already done this when I made my Mitsuki dress so yipee! Less work for me! Course it's shaped differently so I'll have to fix that later, I can't be bothered now xD;
The dress part was also double layered but I didn't think it was necessary so I cut out four panels and sewed them together to make a circular skirt (fabric was already in dress shape so I couldn't make a proper circle skirt the usual way!). I'm undecided as to whether or not to buy some lining or not, we'll see. For this reason I am leaving it unhemmed for the time-being.
All that's left to do is make the straps and add them on with the bows and as I said previously, shape the bodice into a V shape and hem the skirt.
