My newest cosplay is Nia after the time skip. I love her character and will do what I can to do her justice.
After weeks of work and months of planning I finished! Just in time for Katsucon too!
When I watched Gurren Lagann I absolutely fell in love with Nia. I felt like she was the missing part of me. I don't know, I always get really close to characters that are princesses or are like princesses.
For the dress we had to alter the crap out of this strapless dress pattern. My measurements were spread out over three different sizes. XD
I watched the episodes with Nia wearing this dress dozens of times to get everything right. The slit always jumps from the right to the left side! So I put it on the right because that's where it was most of the time.
Oh Gainax and your continuity errors.
The shoes killed my feet! I got a cut on my foot and blisters on both pinky toes.
The cape constantly fell off. We ran out of time to put hooks and eyes on it to keep it in place. We'll have to fix that.
And when I say "we" I mean my mom and I.
We put interface in the cape to make it stiffer. The necklace was luck. I found the main part in a store in my college town and my friend Laura added the jewels on later.
The belt I used gold fabric. The patterns on the sleeves were so difficult! ><''
The wig I got on ebay. I bought a discontinued one and they gave me the new one for the price of the old one.
