Motivation

I originally made my Tank Girl cosplay in 2014 and it was super comfortable. A few weeks before Nineworlds I looked at my Cosplay progress and just decided that I wasn't excited about anything I was working on. And when I lose the spark, that's when I know I need a break and to go and make something quick, easy and fun that involves cardboard, craft foam and/or glitter glue. So I dug through my old cosplays to see what I could rewear or repair and I found the hatbox that TG lived in on top of my wardrobe and I got really excited about wearing it again... but Nineworlds 2018 was a 3.5 day con, what was I going to wear for the other 2? I had another dig around and found a box with random vests and leggings in it marked "Tank Girl" and realised I'd at some point intended to make more versions... or at least some extra vests so I could wear TG for a whole con without getting stinky; I poked around in my Cosplay hardrive and found a bunch of references I'd already saved for inspiration. Turns out I got a bit overexcited because I love TG so much and I made most of 3 versions, having forgotten I already had the base layers from 2014... But that's OK, because I didn't have time to complete one version due to mishaps with dye so it all worked out and I ended up with 3 complete TG's, a spare vest and plenty of leftover enthusiasm to finish the 4th variant and small props as and when I have more time.
