Elle Driver
Kill Bill Vol 1

Cosplayer: Ranma1-2

Variant: Nurse costume

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

22nd October 2012: making the dress curvy progress - with the dress on the dummy I drew on the curvey seam lines in pencil. Then cut and pinned. Front and back both curve in toward the armholes and this gives a lovely fitted shape to the dress.

29th September 2012: wip - tailoring the dress Since the uniform shape is so shapeless, I have started re-tailoring the whole thing into more of a fitted dress shape. All the pockets have been carefully unpicked and also the sleeves. Pic shows the dress pinned where I want my new seams to flow and make it very fitted around bust and waist.

28th August 2012: Base dress Nurse uniform dress arrived today. Dissapointed tbh ..Could it be any more shapeless? - it will need loads of alteration to get that sexy fitted look. So this how it looks before alteration.

23rd August 2012: Props Whilst on holiday I found a great syringe prop inside a gift shop. Its actually a novelty pen, but looks spot on for this cosplay even has the red liquid inside. The pen part is easliy removable. Just need to add a pretend 'needle' for theatrical impact.

Thanks guys. ^_^ Base uniform is ordered. Hopefully will just need to take in the seams to custom fit me in a nice curvy way -_^ When that is done I can show some progress pics.

Ahaha like all nurses uniforms are like sexy fitted slut ones? XD generically Nurse unifroms are just literally tubes of fabric with collars. XD

Ranma1-2 - 29th August 2012
Its how I pictured nurses uniforms ..but yeah lots of altering to make this one fit all nice and curvey. Curvey is good. ^_^

Wow I had no idea you had so many props @>@

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 3rd November 2012
Yes ^_^ I thought it was the best way to do this performance. Props I made were mainly cardboard and carried on by the stage crew. My friend told me 'next time less props more costume' :P

Ranma1-2 - 14th November 2012
Thanks for your comments guys. :)
Yeah those Japanese drums kinda killed the whole mood setting of my audio track. ..What can we do? I hope they dont have them playing through masquerade again. Props - I will write some explanantion about those in the costume information above.
