|Time Taken :||uygo7lbgf|
|My most favourite character from my most favourite anime. EVA-r. *laugh track*|
This took me 3 years to make, on and off. yep.
The suit is made entirely from scratch, with 4-way stretch vinyl (which is evil, don't talk to strange fabric).
I tried to make the undershirt twice but the fabric i used was dodgy so i bought a sleeved leotard. This way I can remove the shirt and do the injured version of Rei if i want to.
it was a lot of hard work but i'm pleased-ish with the way it turned out. this was my dream cosplay, and having a photoshoot on the Eva-like pier was so awesome.
Shoulder armour detail (Posted 12th August 2012)
You can't really see these properly on the full shot i uploaded, but luckily i took this as well. it's made with real shoulder pads, and craft foam, covered in the infamous vinyl.
Leg details (Posted 9th August 2012)
This is about the third time the legs have been made. yep. previously i tried to do the leg lines with a sharpie pen, but it ended up smudging and wouldn't come off no matter what and i died inside.
Bodysuit done (Posted 30th July 2012)
it's been like this for a while but i never took a proper photo. if it werent for velcro this costume would be a disaster. as you can see i still need to re-paint the green things, but other than that it's done.
Backpack done (Posted 30th July 2012)
I was unsure of how to finish it, and the top bit is what I came up with today. not sure if i like it, it sort of looks too big, but i cant think of ways to make it any smaller. I like the bottom bit though.
Wristbands (Posted 26th July 2012)
These were made with foam and covered with velcro, the orange bits are craft foam. there's a little slit at the bottom with velcro on, that's how I get them on.
