Costume Information

Description
So my attempt to reduce my number of planned cosplays failed

I love Guardian Signs, except for the lack of Go-Rock Quads (a brief cameo :/)
Managed to persuade Devil_Trigger to be Ben for me c:

After spending all of Kitacon being entirely too warm, I suddenly really want to cosplay this for Expo! Poor old Pichu has been sat in the cupboard for too long...

Calling this complete, despite the lack of styler. I just can't make it how I want to so I'll leave it for now and try again for when James cosplays Ben with me!

TOP:
The top is a leotard made of white and royal blue lycra. I used and edited a bodysuit pattern with surprising success

SHORTS:
Blue lycra over white bodycon. The belt is red bi-stretch and the buckle is milliput.

JACKET:
Red bi-stretch with yellow jersey and white lycra detail. I made the scarf with yellow jersey.

GLOVES:
Blue lycra with yellow jersey and red bi-stretch details and white lycra cuffs.

SHOES:
School trainers covered in red bi-stretch and blue lycra.


This costume was really fun to do and was more challenging than I expected. I think I want to remake the jacket in the future, or at least adjust the fit more!

Almost there! (Posted 6th May 2014)

Just need to sculpt a buckle and somehow make a styler...
Wig and goggles ordered! The goggles arrived this morning but they've turned out to be kids ones so I'm either going to need to buy a new pair or get a new strap.

Jacket, etc. (Posted 22nd April 2014)

Both are done.
The scarf itself is just a big strip of yellow jersey.

The jacket is red bi-stretch, with yellow and white jersey/lycra details. I used the top of a dress pattern for the jacket, adjusting the length and front appropriately. I don't have a jacket pattern so I had to improvise with what I did have haha! I then stitched a strip of yellow around the bottom, and rolled white lycra around the armholes.

The gloves were pretty simple. I cut my normal glove shape out of blue lycra and then chopped off the fingers and thumbs, then sewed them as normal. Next, I stitched a strip of red bi-stretch across the knuckles and rolled and stitched a thick strip of white lycra around the wrists for the cuffs.

Just the shorts to go and I'll have the base costume ready! Going to order a wig and some goggles on my next payday c:

(I've also bought a white bangle and I'm going to try to sculpt something that looks like a styler onto it)

EDIT: The scarf just wasn't working so I remade it and I'll think of some way of tying it.

Shoes (Posted 17th April 2014)

The shoes are finally done, and my fingers are almost no longer in agony!
I bought a pair of cheap white/orange school trainers as these were the only ones I could get with a velcro strap! To edit them I first stitched red bi-stretch over the tongue, and then pinned and stitched blue lycra around the front of the shoe. As the shoes are made of some kind of plasticky stuff to make them easy to clean (being school shoes), sewing through them was incredibly painful :c
To finish off, I used a red marker to colour the sides and any remaining orange details.

Stuff (Posted 16th December 2010)

A pichu and a styler have been aquired (bought by Devil_Trigger but I'm paying him back!)

I really want to start working on this but other than making a ukulele, I'm going to practice self restraint til I've finished most of my in progress list XD
