Costume Information

Yoko has now had breast reduction XD

Bought fabric for the hot pants & bra/bikini and a pattern for the hotpants (its so confusing T_T)
bought some pink lycra for the stockings but how the hell do you make them without a seam o_O
so shall start on this when i have the motivation.

I gave up trying to make her stockings they just didnt look right so ive orderd some instead ^^

Complete on my part just waiting on boots and wig.. maybe a sniper if theres time?

yokos legs are not skinny anyway, and you dont need to ruin a parefectly good pair of stockings my trying to elasticate them , just add double sided tape on the inside to hold them up.lookin cool so far

I wasnt going to 'ruin' them i was going to add a small bit elastic on the inside of the leg to give just a bit more support.

I agree, nothing wrong with your legs! you have a great shape.
Stockings - normal stockings will fall down without suspenders even on skinny legs. Stay-ups or Hold-ups usually have special stickey rubber strips around the inside of the stocking tops.

I'd watch you don't let any nipples show at the expo x.x... I've seen some pretty skimpy stuff before and I took a photo... I think you can guess what I saw XD.
My mom wouldn't ever let me walk around in an outfit like this lol...

haha the bikini will be firmly stuck down with double sided tape XD my mum dosent like it but she is quite supportive of my cosplays plus not much she can do about it really. lol

by GraceyDarling on Wednesday, 11 March, 2009 - 21:19

Thank you for the comment! <3

I have the same problem with my mum. She hates me cosplaying characters with skimpy costumes.

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.


GLOVES!? (Posted 10th March 2009)

Seriously been trying to make the gloves for days now i can do everything except cut the hole the right size for the thumb to be sewn on and its so annoying me >_< im thinking about buying a pair of pvc gloves and altering them before i end up going on a killing spree xD
