Wow. This costume was certainly a labor of love. I often focus on prop heavy cosplay, but the intensity/amount of sewing involved certainly challenged me. However, I can't say "no" to copious amounts of Chinese brocade! XD
And there were certainly A LOT of firsts in terms of techniques employed: copic airbrushing the chest/abs, casting a latex prosthetic for Cytomander's unique nose, etc.
As always PM me with any questions you might have about construction.
