Ok I need some suggestions on Yoko's costume. I'm doing an alternate time skip outfit that is provided in the link above. I really wanted to know if vinyl would be best for all the pieces of the costume. I commonly see people use it for Yoko. And also if I shout make the top smaller like Yoko does or make it fit cause my boobs are huge and I don't want them to fall out. And if I should use elastic with her shorts since they don't have a zipper or zip up. Any thing you could tell me and help me with would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Her jacket is based on a cycle jacket and those are almost always made of leather. Vinyl or pleather are good material choices. You might also be able to get away with a low shine satin backed with a thicker interfacing and lined.

For the top, do what you feel most comfortable in. I personally have no problem with slight adjustments to costumes for the sake of modesty.

I wouldn't put elastic in the shorts, it will bunch and look awkward. I would suggest doing a side zipper.

I made my top from a swimsuit material (the black, I used an old one piece I had) and a red cotton shirt. If you still need help as far as making, just ask. <3

I was thinking of making her robe to put over the costume even though it was her pre time skip costume, but meh. lol I got most of the costume put together. I just have to order a new wig. Finish the rest of the payment on her rifle, and then get her boots and I'm done.
