Journal

Dry run (Posted 5th March 2013)

I pretty much only put this costume together so I could cosplay with TheKillingDoll's Ocelot at Minami, although NakedSalad will be borrowing it for the group at Ayacon. I wasn't at all happy with how it looked on me and considered never wearing it again, but on looking at photos I think I've identified where the issues lie and they can be improved.

Whether I wear it again or not, it will need taking in for Rosie to wear it. I made no alterations to the flight suit for this iteration and it was far, far too baggy. Looking at the reference again, while the style of the suit is correct, EVA's is actually quite close-fitted to her body, so I'll be taking in the seams to match that.

Secondly, the wig didn't work. It was a trimmed wig I had in storage because I was trying to keep costs down, but it was much too pale (EVA is more a mid-dark blonde) and the style didn't suit my face shape at all. A wig with more layers and a darker shade needed.

Thirdly, I need to lose a little more weight and possibly have more of a tan... the exposed belly parts looked a bit pale and flabby.

Fourthly, need to spend more time on makeup so I resemble her more facially. The Boss has my face shape, EVA doesn't.

Finally, I might get a new bra. The one I used was an old one (again, keeping costs down) which I bought when I was four cup sizes smaller... amazingly enough the fit wasn't too great!

It's *possible* I will rewear it for May Expo, so we'll see how the improvements go.
