Costume Information

Description
In the process of pricing everything up at the moment.

Corset update (13/06/10) - I'm hoping to get this piece made as a custom commission by the lovely Sephirayne as all the ones on ebay I found aren't even close to what I want. Will keep this updated at it progresses.

Catsuit update (03/09/10) - Oops taken me a while to update this but I've been busy with cosplays for Eternal Twilight 4 recently so everything has been a bit hectic. I have found a catsuit on ebay but not sure I'm entirely happy with it yet so been sending the seller some questions. I'm going for a pvc catsuit for this as I wanna try and keep basic costs down.

Boot update (03/09/10) - Not 100% sure yet if these are the boots I will use but I got to admit I love them so may buy them anyway. http://www.xtremefootwear.co.uk/ccp51/cgi-bin/cp-app.cgi?pg=prod&ref=ELE2042BPU

Catsuit update (27/04/2011) - Well my new catsuit arrived this morning from the States. I actually love it. Its not pvc or leather but is made to look like it. The fabric is stretchy which makes it extremely comfortable to wear.

The catsuit looks great. I agree that the zip needs to be changed but other than that I think it will work really well. Can't wait to see.

I actually had to alter them last night as the left guard I had to make a bit bigger as my left arm is slightly bigger. Turns out I made it too big. Sorted now though and fits perfect

Journal

Wrist guards (Posted 17th May 2013)

The wrist guards took me half a day to make. I made a base pattern from paper first to my measurements and then cut it from leatherette. I added the spiral boning with casings to the inside then lined with black cotton twill. The zips were then fitted between the cotton and leatherette. I actually need to make the left wrist guard a tiny but smaller as I made it a little bit bigger as that arm is wider but made it a little bit to big so going to readjust the positioning of the zip so its smaller.

Guns (Posted 17th May 2013)

I actually have two different kinds of guns, both are cap guns but one is a front loading one and the other had the flip up top. The gun pictured is a James Bond style one that came with the attachment but with the torch attached. I sawed off the torch, filed down the raw edge and plan on adding a piece of cardboard to the bottom to seal the hole in it.

Catsuit (Posted 18th April 2011)

Honestly there must be a vinyl/pvc catsuit somewhere out there that isn't a fetish one with a zip round to the back. I have found one on ebay but it has one of these said zips so I'm still having a look round. I'm not really liking the pvc one I have as its really tight even though its meant to be a 8/10 so I'm thinking of getting a 10/12 instead just to be sure the nasty zip doesn't feel like its cutting me in half.
