Killjoy - New cyberforce
I've finished the sewing part on the top half of the costume, I just need to add the white parts, I've decided to make them look like bones so that it fits in with the rest of the design. (she has a skull headpiece, not shown in ref)

Ref - http://www.comicbookresources.com/imgsrv/preview/0/0/1/CFv4006-reader-lo-2-203a5.jpg

However I'm worried this will be too skimpy for me personally to wear as it's a hell of a lot of cleavage, and it's to be worn at a convention. Should I just wear a bra and cover it with bandage or a tube top? or are there any better ideas?

There are a few ways I would go about this:

1. You could bring the panels closer together and use tape/prosaide to keep them stuck to avoid malfunctions.

2. Buy a white leotard and paint it to keep the skin even all over (it'd also cover your belly button which is handy since the design seems to lack one?) It'll save a lot of body paint, and your modesty too.


Personally, I'd use the second one since you can get away with it with the design. With natural/even skin tones, it's very hard to pull off, but because of the way she is patterned, it'll look way more convincing. You can get leotards from dance wear shops or on ebay, and there's loads of ways to paint them. I'd recommend wearing it/getting someone else to wear it while it's painted so you'll get it to look exactly how you want.

Here's a panel by Rufflebutt cosplay here to help you out - http://youtu.be/iOSuZrORY8w it's full of loads of helpful tips to keep things where they need to be.


You can do more research into it if you're interested in doing this method but I hope I helped in some way! it's an epic design and I hope it goes well~

I think I might do a mix of both white zentai/leotard and use tape to make sure the jacket pieces stay in the right place, thank you a lot for that, just need to find a victim to shade in the suit

Skin colour material/make fake boobs is my suggestion
