FX Fighter Turbo
Last Updated: 11-10-2009
This costume was made in only one night!!! I happened to be looking through some catgirl pictures, found one of Sheba, and took an instant liking to her character design. No one recognized which character I was suppossed to be, but everyone seemed to like the costume anyway.....I know I do! ^_-
BODYSUIT: I bought the bodysuit at a store called the 'Fetish Factory', and altered it to fit me and look like the bodysuit Sheba wears.
ARM & LEG PIECES: I used some flesh-colored (nylon-type) material to make skin-tight arm pieces that attach to one another under the bodysuit. The leg pieces are dance tights. Stripes were painted on both with black fabric paint.
WRIST BANDS: I covered some thick fabric (left over from my Tama-chan Costume) with black pleather and fitted them around my wrists.
TAIL: I made my own pattern for the tail, inserted a bendable wire inside, and stuffed fiber fill around the wire and in the tail. The stripes were painted on with a fabric paint.
EARS: I made my own pattern for these..... I began by bending wire into two skeletal ear shapes, then put layers of masking tape over the areas that would be covered by fabric. Next, I attached the inner ear fabric to the structure with fabric glue, and hand-sewed the fabric onto the other side of the ears. The ears were then attached to a thin headband using hot glue and thread.
