This is my cosplay version of Asuka Langley Soryu red play suit that I made for the London MCM Expo October 2009. As I am an experienced pattern cutter I found making the costume a piece of cake. The pattern is basically like a swim suit shape with added long sleeves, plus leggings worn under. For the shaping that’s done by modelling on the stand, a French cutting technique. I also made the clips from polymer clay which was also extremely quick to make. If any one is thinking to make a play suit like this or similar just email me if you need any help ;)

Oh yeah and why are you calling it a Red "Play" Suit instead of a Red "Plug" Suit?

This is so impressive, i'd love to do the plug suit but don't think i'd do a good job so this Expo I'll be doing Asuka in school uniform instead >_< You're hair is perfect too...

Thexs, that's not my hair lollllll, it's a cheap wig that only cost me £20, as for the suit it really isn't that difficult. The pattern is basically a swim suit with long sleeves then a pair of leggings or tights under. It all depends if you want to make it out of skrach, x
