Cowboy Bebop

Last Updated: 05-18-2010


I made this for a costume for a group for OhayoCon 2010 originally, but plans fell through. I had already purchased all the materials and had been thinking about cosplaying her for a while so I figured why not do it anways! This costume was rather challenging when it came to the top and her wig. I'm not a big fan of sewing collars of any kind, and this was my first time doing a collar like this one. It was absolute hell and the directions on the pattern weren't very clear. I just sort of winged it. I'm not 100% satisfied with it, but it's not too bad I suppose.

The wig was a bit simpler than I thought. I just made a extra hairpiece for her wicked widow's peak. It's made of stiff black felt with a weft of hair glued and sewn in place. It was then styled by cutting it into pointed edges then finished off with hairspray and styling glue. It simply just slips under the headband (which is just a tube of vinyl and elastic that goes around the back of my head) while the actual wig is worn a bit further back on the head to mimic the hair being pulled back.

The red shirt was just purchased at the local Goodwill.

However, at Anime Central 2010 we managed to get the Cowboy Bebop group together for some shots with Elemental.
