Another commission from a friend, and my favorite cosplay that I've made so far. Gil is a fun character, and definitely rare among cosplayers. Construction was intense, but went smoothly, and was very enjoyable.
Main Body: Black and white casa polyester satin. It was constructed in white and then appliqued with black horizontal and vertical stripes. Zipper in back, lined with white posh.
Tails are stiffened with black tailor-weight interfacing. The medallions at each end are machine embroidered in a spiral pattern with coats & clark neon thread.
Gloves are white satin, appliqued with black vertical stripe. Horizontal stripe is a band with velcro at the end to cinch the glove and hold it up. Lower gloves have a satin cuff.
Wig: Purchased from cosworx, styled by hand.
