View Full Version : Yoko Littner's (Gurren Lagann) Shorts/Bikini PVC vs Leather

I'm going to cosplay as Yoko Littner at Ohayocon and i'm trying to decide on materials. I can't decide on a more matte black (leather) or something really shiny like wetlook PVC for her shorts and bikini.

I feel like leather will look less... cheap, and it will hug my body better without creating any jelly rolls. (If anyone is looking at my profile to judge my size, I've lost 20+lbs since the most recent costume). But is the PVC more accurate to the character?

Honestly... I think it could go either way. As long as it's fitted correctly, I don't think that PVC will necessarily look cheap; what I would do is look at fifteen or twenty other Yokos, and see whether you prefer the shiny look or the matte look.
