Description
I cosplayed Chrome at May Expo 2010. Her wig bothered me and I couldn't see very well with the eyepatch on, but overall I enjoyed cosplaying as her. I was wondering what I could do for October Expo 2010 since I'm on a tight budget and this came to mind.
Hopefully it'll be comfortable and not too expensive. I can fit into the smaller jumpsuit sizes luckily so hopefully this won't run too expensive! Looking at other people who have cosplayed these have made me consider to paint things onto it like character names, numbers, etc.

Currently, this is planned for the Saturday of October Expo 2010.

Paint Mask;; £0.23

Painting this kinda came out disasterous. It would have been a lot better to do it with iron on transfers actually but this wasn't thought of until after starting to paint.

I also misplaced some of the badges I have for this. I'm not looking forward to wearing it at all.

Progress (Posted 4th September 2010)

I am making some progress on ths, here's the proof! I received the base of my jumpsuit today; I'm considering bringing up the trouser length because it's a little bit too long when I stand up but it's perfect when I sit down. Oh, decisions decisions. It's a bit big at the moment but I presume since what I'll be wearing underneath will be thicker than pyjamas, that should hopefully sort itself out.
The length of where the buttons go to have confirmed that I will have to wear both shorts and a vest top underneath which is fine with me.
The white thing on my wrist is a paint/dust/whatever mask. Considering the theme behind the jumpsuits seems to be painting/spray painting it was appropriate.

Next thing to do with this is to customise this! However, I need to go buy a paintbrush or two first because I still don't own any.

Apologies for my hair, I had just gotten woken up this morning by someone throwing parcels onto my bed and I was so excited I tried them on straight away without brushing my hair orz.
