Costume Information

For Ayacon, for the omake with neko_riddles as the totally awesome Gendou Ikari!

Our skit went very well :D The cosplay itself was extremely simple since I had everything and I just needed to buy the wig. Very simple since it was just for the omake. Not sure if I'll ever do his other outfits - the plugsuit is skintight which will be awkward for crossplay |D

To-Do List

Buy wigHighComplete
Get binderHighComplete
Buy shirtMediumComplete
Buy top underneath shirtLowComplete
ID cardLowComplete


Almost there (Posted 26th June 2011)

Purchased a Nerv ID card from Etsy, with Shinji details on. Gonna wear it for photoshoots and stuff maybe. Also just something to throw at people. :P

Also comissioning a binder from Sephirayne, so once that arrives Shinji will be finished and I can take pictures :D

Progress (Posted 22nd June 2011)

Found the perfect shirt for him the other day, it's a mens shirt so the staff were confused when I asked to try it on XD

Got a black top to go underneath too. Just need to see about black trousers (and looking at a ref he seems to have a brown belt too) I have a couple of pairs but I might look into getting a new pair?

In progress yaaa (Posted 8th May 2011)

I'm moving Shinji up to In progress since I've found and bought a really good wig for him, hooraaaay :)

You won't see any more progress for a couple of months though :3
