Electra - Streets of Rage II


Keep muttering about this, Blaze seems a popular choice lately so the other side needs some attention!

Easy fun retro cosplay for Minami.

Hugely unlikely to be reworn without making a new leotard, and there may well never be any pictures >_> This was not a good costume...
Having seen pictures it looks like the front of the suit reveals a lot more than it does, I'd like to assure everyone that I was wearing dance tights beneath the fishnets so everything is completely covered.

This would be the enemy with whips, fishnets and fancy hats if memory serves me correctly?

I'll probably do the unhatted version from when you first encounter her, but yeah.

I haven't worn Blaze properly yet (well I never got a chance to have proper photos taken basically), but we should get pictures some time! This looks great from what I can see.

Nooo, it was awful, but it wouldn't take me long to make up a new leotard, I have the fabric cut already. The whip-hand also got left in the hotel but it was just a sprayed-up Pringles can, haha - I can make one of those too!

I bought fabric and started patterning the leotard, and then I get an email with the tracking number for the suit set... typical. On the upside, it saves me making the glove. It's arrived now, have made up the boots just need to finish altering the leotard. I accidentally cut it a bit too far in the back, but I'll be wearing dance tights and fishnets which should mitigate the eye-bleeding. I can also use the spare fabric to make up the shawl she throws off just before you fight her, so it's not a total loss... I really don't know what else I'd use electric blue foil lycra for...

The suit/stockings/gloves set I ordered to alter for this costume haven't arrived yet, and to be honest I think the company was a bit sketchy anyway... an error in judgement on my part. Shall have to chase that cash up. Will be buying fabric to make this from scratch instead. I can pattern off my Cammy leotard. Skit also in the works.
