Anti Spiral Nia Teppelin

Messenger Nia

Gurren Lagann

Last Updated: 09-10-2011


So my original plan for Katsucon was to be Nia Teppelin AND Messenger Nia but the bodysuit never got painted. It's still not painted. I have everything I need I just need to get around to doing. The blue fabric is easy enough, but I need to do the painting first. THIS WILL BE DONE FOR OTAKON!

I love Nia, I still loved her when she became Messenger Nia. Sad but still loved her, and then she came back and I was happy. And then Nia and Simon got married which made me even happier! (I'll do her wedding dress too one day.) And then she disappeared and I was so sad and yelling at my tv "WHY NIA WHY????" I shook my brother who introduced Gurren Lagann to me and said "WHY KYLE?? WHY???"
Anyway I ordered the bodysuit, got the wig off of ebay and got red fabric paint because from my research of other Anti-spiral Nia cosplayers on here it sounded like acryllic wasn't the way to go. I have my blue fabric and found what color I wanted because my friend's umbrella broke one day and it was the perfect color blue so I took it and used it as a reference point. Shoes will be painted blue. They are white right now but they look just like her shoes.
I'm so excited for this!

8/3/2011 I got such a great reaction to this at Otakon! I'm really happy with it. I painted the shoes blue and they came out fantastic. My friend RMF painted the bodysuit with the red fabric paint I bought and I couldn't have done this without her. I put on the second coat of paint, my friends helped me the night before with putting the blue fabric on but we ran out of fabric glue for the left leg. I also washed my wig and brought it to a wig place to have bangs cut into it and it came out really nice.
The only scary thing about this was that less than a week before the con the zipper came off so I brought that to a tailor to be fixed and got it back tuesday before otakon. Thank God it came out right!
