So that's how you did the chest piece. Ingenious! And the styrene/vinyl gives a great finish to the armour! The panelling on the bodysuit is perfect.

Thank you! The idea came to me when I was on the edge of giving up out of exasperation and lack of money!

I always wondered why you'd put nipples onto the chest piece! :'D

Tsupo - 21st January 2012
Yup... they were pretty much the bane of my life. Because I was using quite a powerful dremel I was stuck between 'do I sand them with the hard tool which will most likely make two nipple holes because the plastic's thin? or do I leave them because the soft attachment did nothing... FML'
So I went with ..cold Rei LOL.

Wow, fantastic work! =O I have to say, that's the most inspired Eva suit I've seen, especially since you used the material you did. Great idea~

Nice take on Rei.
The nipples aren't too prominent..I didn't notice them myself. Interesting that neoprene was extremely hot to wear, it does make sense I guess since it is used for scuba outfits.

Still, Great costume construction and cosplay. :)

Oh god, I feel your pain about this costume. Mine's still in progress after like, two years!
MAJOR props on completing yours though. It looks amazing, I love the armour and your wig!
