Ok, one of the few potentials I have plans to try and do as a cosplay for the 2008 convention season is Neliel Tu Oderschvank (aka Nel Tu) the former 3rd Espada from the anime and manga series Bleach by Tite Kubo.

I am looking to plan on doing the adult version of Nel Tu if I can find some more pictures of her in the adult form. The only one I have found a semi decent one of so far is this one:

Adult version is on the right...

So I am seeking some help from my fellow cosplayers and Bleach fans to help me find some more semi-good reference pictures for me to use to help me construct the costume. I am also looking for tips, and suggestions as far as patterns, materials and other things in the quest to try and make a good Nel Tu cosplay. My goal is to debut it at either at ACEN XI- 2008 or Anime Weekend Atlanta XIIII- 2008, so I want to try and get the project started hopefully after the first of the year.

So I come to you my fellow cosplayers and and ask for your help. Will you help me on my quest?

Flashback Neliel has apeared very little in the manga. The picture you linked is the only color version of Adult Nel that exists.

You can find her in manga pannels in chapters
293 and 294

there just isn't a lot of her to go off of, so if you aren't up for a challenge and Kubo's wonderful inconsistent manga then I would wait for the anime.

The only think I can tell you, based on the Nel's I've see already is
Stuff the jacket. It's supposed to be puffy and quilted...like a giant marshmallow man.

well you have pretty good views of her jacket already. her pants look like slacks with a crease in the middle ... they flare out and are cut off mid-calf. i can only guess that she has standard espada boots.

i'm doing that one, too. yay for guessing! i can only hope the anime gets off fillers soon.

Well if worse comes to worse, we all can butt heads and toss around ideas, suggestions and help each other as we all try and turn this into a cosplay reality...:D
