Asuka Shikinami - Neon Genesis Evangelion by Mostflogged Asuka Shikinami - Neon Genesis Evangelion by Mostflogged
thank fucking god i made mari last year because otherwise making this costume would have been nothing short of emotional devastation. I'm not 100% happy with what I made but I'm PRETTY PLEASED, the mistakes i made were only fixable if i started the whole thing over again, which i don't plan on doing since overall i'm more or less happy with what I made.

I started with a vinyl mock up and sweet darling boyfriend ju$tin helped me mark the suit. After that I cut it apart and pattered the entire thing myself which took about 8 hours!! But now i have the pattern if I ever need to make this again uhuhuuhu

the costume is made from a combination of matte vinyl (the white and black) and regular shiny vinyl (everything else) UNFORTUNATELY i couldn't find this exact shade of purple in anything but 2 way stretch so my leggings are 2 way stretch which means i can't really...move my legs lmao. I got all my fabric from spandex house except the purple which i got from an ebay seller! Everything is either serged together or zigzagged stitched.

pretty much everything is sewn in with the exception of the little orange pieces on my hands and the green shoulder pieces which are fabric glued on. The marks on the costume are simply sharpied on (again by ju$tin who is a literal angel).

Once the body suit was sewn together completely I added an extra piece to the shoes to cover the shoes completely and add the black/orange to the shoes. The collar was made out of craft foam and wood filler, once completely sanded it was plastidipped and painted! The armor pieces are done in the same way, craft foam glued together, then wood fillered and sanded many times, then plastidipped and painted! It was superglued to the plug suit to keep it on. My backpack is stacked craft foam covered in vinyl, which attaches to my back with Velcro over my zipper! Bought my hair nodes from ebay, got my hoes from payless.

biggest errors in making this pug suit - FOR SOME REASON MY ARMS ARE TOO LONG i don't know why bc i took some length off hen i patterned it but i guess not enough??? Also, i patterned the armor into the suit as fabric WHICH WAS A FOOLS ERRAND i should have made the entire front panel solid red and just put the armor on where it needed to go. Because I fucked up and tried to fix it there's some weird puckering action going on that isn't hugely noticeable but it's very annoying uunghhh

I think you did a great job with this plugsuit! I also like the one you did for mari but this one is even better! *-*

Iīm sorry if this is a stupid question but as I read that you have a pattern of this I canīt help but asking if you could somehow give it to me (as a photo or whatever) Because I really wanna do a cosplay of this suit but I donīt know where to start @___@ Since Iīm not that expierinced with sewing it may be a bad idea to make a plugsuit but I simply love this version of asuka. 
Can totally understand if you donīt want to hand your hard work over to someone else but it would be a great help! >-<

Anyway your cosplay is awesome! More pictures would be great! *-*

It looks nice, excluding the fact that the character herself makes me want to murder a puppy every time I see her on screen. No offense to you, of course.
