|This was made as a surprise for one of my best friends :) She loves Evangelion so with a group of friends, we all made Evangelion costumes so we're having a shoot tomorrow! My sister made this entire costume in a few hours for me, so all credit goes to her :P I really lucked out on fabric choices for this cosplay. Rhi had already made her Rei school uniform a couple of years back, but I was determined to get the same colour fabric choice that she had. It took going to three fabric shops and me nearly giving up, but I found the perfect colour fabric in the reduced section. As this was going to be a surprise, I only had a photo of Rhi's Rei costume to go by and I was so, so happy to find the right fabric in the end :D The shoot went so well in the end and we found a perfect location to do photos at as well. Took a bit of climbing over all sorts of things but this worked out so perfectly :D Could not be happier with this.|

After shoot (Posted 12th September 2011)
We got some really nice photos at our Eva shoot (thank you so much to MadameLapin for being absolutely amazing 8D), but unfortunately the hairclips didn't arrive in time :( I had to substitute with some red bobbles. Hopefully the photos will be up soon!
This is obviously a reason to do more Eva shoots in the future however XD
Components (Posted 8th September 2011)
Wig: I did buy a wig for this, but unfortunately it never materialised so I'll have to find something else :P For the shoot tomorrow I will be borrowing a wig from Sisceal :)
Hairclips: I was originally planning to just use some red hairclips as I didn't have the time or money to order the real ones. Fortunately Sisceal came to my rescue and ordered them for me as she was planning to do some Asuka costumes anyway :) We're going halves on them when I have the money to pay her back. <3
Shirt: Bought a shirt for £1.50 from Asda and my sister modified it. Bought a small length of ribbon from our local material shop to tie around the neck.
Dress: My sister made this for me in a couple of hours. As I wanted this surprise to go smoothly I didn't want to attempt to make it myself. I'd bought just enough fabric to get everything done so I didn't want to go wrong hahaha :P
Socks: Already owned
Shoes: Re-used from my Alice cosplay.
