Ryoko Hakubi (Retired) (Battlesuit) - Tenchi Muyo!


EDIT: April 2010

I will be planning to rewear at some point but gonna attempt a foam core build within the wig or something =) one of my fave cosplays I've done so far! xD

EDIT: Rewearing for Sunday at Expo with any luck. Not sure if I'm gonna have time for foam core building cos of moving but it WILL happen eventually :)

Tenchi was the first anime I ever watched knowing it was anime (Id watched DBZ on cartoon network for years before hand not realising its anime :P ) , Ryoko is like the first anime bad girl I ever come across so cant wait to see this done , good luck x

Ryoko has that puffed out shoulder from the reference. Will you be planning on doing that with the cosplay as well?

Bambi. posted on 19 February, 2011 - 12:19
I wasn't really sure on how I would puff it out to be honest =( If I end up finding a way to do it, then I would definitely try, because I wanted to do that from the start but my lack of knowhow.. just wasn't meant to be! lol =)

Mangamad posted on 19 February, 2011 - 15:57
Weather you can do that or not, I'm sure your Ryoko cosplay will look smexy. ^o^

Bambi. posted on 21 February, 2011 - 16:41

Soooooo happy!! She looks fab and I love her so hehe! The sleeves are a lil tight due to my shitty measuring and have come away at the seams in a couple of places but I can fix that no biggy =) Now I have the sleeves. I can buy and add the gems to the outfit =) will be buying these... If anyone knows any shops that would sell these...

Stitchy stitchy

I can FINALLY try this thing on without getting stabbed a million times over due to the pins >.< I really thought that this stitching business was going to be a horrible task but it seems to have been ok. I just straight stitched it as it seems to hold well and I stitched it with an allowance for stretching anyways =) Next job is the sleeves... which I SUCK at >.< Gonna work on those next weekend I think. Gonna have to schedule my time a lil better these next few weeks as I have Kita to prepare for and now moving away which is gonna be a 8e372982636r42987times more stressy for me =D Sarah started work on my wig the other week, which I got a sneaky peek of when I was down this week and the colour looks great! Cant wait to see more and get that badboy on ma noggin! xD EDIT: I've decided that me.. in my pedantic ways, I don't like the back panels. Looked up some references straight from the OVA series and they are longer and more... wing like? so will probs do the sleeves next week and then redo the back if I still really hate it... which I probably will =/

Rotary Cutter! <3

Right... I decided that I need to update this seeing as I have somewhat abandoned her since getting my lycra due to intense fear of cutting the lycra panels >< I recut the original front panels with my shiny new rotary cutter which to be completely fair... is an AMAZING lil gadget hehe. It is so much easier to cut the awkward curved shapes than scissors! I'm so glad I bought one hehe! I have only pinned on the front panels and need to go in hunt of the rest of my fabric because... as I said... I havent touched this since wayyyyy before christmas >.< *dons hunting helmet and sniffer dog* I have also added the balls onto the feet of the suit (again as one got all squashed and that :/ I'm gonna be ordering a few glass gems to glue onto the suit from ebay (they only cheapy so why not hehe. I may also cut the gap in the chest of the suit to... is fearful of this costume muchly! I hope I find my fabric soon cos I've really got my game face on for this =) Will HOPEFULLY... be cutting panels and pinning then stitching next weekend *fingers crossed*

10th December 2010


Started cutting the panels out to applique onto the zentai... *note to self* buy sharper/better scissors >.< I have roughly pinned the panels to the front of the suit and will hopefully be cutting the rest at weekend including sleeves. Thanks to Chibi <3 I have found somewhere to get the ears from. I have also painted the balls/pompoms to glue onto the feet of the suit. Will be trying to find 3 glass beads to use for the gems... (hoping they wont be too heavy for the suit! >.<
