Rei Ayanami
Neon Genesis Evangelion

Cosplayer: Relion

Variant: Plugsuit

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Showcased 4th November 2012

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

12th August 2012: Shoulder armour detail You can't really see these properly on the full shot i uploaded, but luckily i took this as well. it's made with real shoulder pads, and craft foam, covered in the infamous vinyl.
The little 'screws' are bottle tops with craft foam on top.
the velcro you can see is for the chest armour.

9th August 2012: Leg details This is about the third time the legs have been made. yep. previously i tried to do the leg lines with a sharpie pen, but it ended up smudging and wouldn't come off no matter what and i died inside.
so this time, i cut the pattern out of some spare leatherette and glued them on while wearing the legs. really tedious. i fucked up a lot on the right leg and there's some leftover glue marks, and from the little knee thing, the dreaded pen marks again. but i might be able to remove it as it's only a little bit, and the glue marks should come off with some scrubbing. i'm saying should because i will not accept it not working, no way in hell am i making these for a fourth time!

30th July 2012: Bodysuit done it's been like this for a while but i never took a proper photo. if it werent for velcro this costume would be a disaster. as you can see i still need to re-paint the green things, but other than that it's done.

30th July 2012: Backpack done I was unsure of how to finish it, and the top bit is what I came up with today. not sure if i like it, it sort of looks too big, but i cant think of ways to make it any smaller. I like the bottom bit though.

26th July 2012: Wristbands These were made with foam and covered with velcro, the orange bits are craft foam. there's a little slit at the bottom with velcro on, that's how I get them on.

6th February 2011: shoes Before and after photo of the shoes. These are then used as a base, and the leg parts are stretched over the foam and glued around the bottom.

Aha no zipper then. It's a good plan to use the hard parts of the costume to cover the gaps in the back...

Hmmm "what is it about guys and plugsuits??", come oooon they're figure hugging, and shiney, and..., and... Mmmmmmmm ^^
btw surely your bf can see your costume in person..all he has to do is come to the Expo with you, n'est pas?
