View Full Version : Very specific bodysuit?

10-10-2010, 12:29 PM
Okay, so trying to find bodysuits is my biggest weakness when it comes to cosplay. I've never really worked with spandex, so I don't even know if I'd be able to make a bodysuit myself.

I'm going to be cosplaying Shadowcat from X-Men, the best pic reference I have is another cosplayer:

So, honestly, I have NO idea what to do or where to go to find a full bodysuit with a collar like that.
And see how the yellow goes out the shoulder? How would I do that?

I'm sorry for being so vague! But if anyone understands what I'm trying to ask, any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

This looks like a custom job - like you'd have to commission someone. The yellow might be sewn on over but it looks like it's just part of the pattern - different pieces sewn together.

You can get that electric blue unitard as a base, then add fabric on top for the yellow sections. Check some of these (http://www.discountdance.com/frame_set.php3?mf=/dancewear/unitards/page1). Sadly the Sansha Adult Short Sleeve has a good collar to use as a base, but it's short sleeve and doesn't come in blue. You could research around for a similar cut, though. I'd probably choose the Bal Togs adult long sleeve mock unitard. I actually have the blue Bal Togs for a GI Joe outfit.
