Hey guys!!! ACP Cosplay is having a Panty & Stocking Cosplay Contest and I would really appreciate it if you'd vote!! Voting for me would be much appreciated, but take a look at the other contestants and vote for your favorite! (●´∀｀●)
This was my second Panty costume based on the original artwork Gainax released when they announced the series before it had actually come out, and I'm really proud of how it turned out. I made the hat out of faux suede and interfacing, hand sewed the bulk of it together, painted pins to match the reference image, bought a white tank top and lined it in white jersey, bought a bunch of gold chains and beads to make the necklace and jewelry myself, made the brown belt out of vinyl and had grommets put in, made the belt buckle out of aluminum, bought shorts then took them in, added studs and buttons for the designs, and for the shoes painted a pair then made top covers which I studded and sewed on.
Panty's character really means a lot to me, she's a lot more than just a HURF DURF dumb slut the way a lot of people think of her, which is not to say that she isn't a dumb slut, because....she is, but that's not all there is to her. The last few episodes of the series were so fucking perfect and beautiful and I genuinely wish I could live my life more like Panty. Being unapologetic about doing the things that make you happy, and being who you are with no hang ups and not taking responsibility for other people's problems is something a lot of people, myself included, should learn how to do.
