The black skintight bodysuit, gloves, and boots were bought, then altered drastically. The outer layer of bodysuit was made from a leotard, which was cut to resemble the real outfit. The metallic disks attached all over the outfit have been made out of buttons painted with silver nail polish~ Lots of sewing was done, and a prop katana was nail poished black and custom re-hilted.
The hardest part was the leotard and cutting it to be the right shape.
The easiest part was altering the boots, but I'm not very satisfied with the results... it doesn't look like the real outfit. :C The gloves were also very easy to make, and the katana was fun to alter, though I ended up inhaling lots of fumes.
