Benten

Urusei Yatsura

Last Updated: 07-08-2013


My cosplay group picked Urusei Yatsura as our big project for the year. I chose Benten. She'd been on my tentative list for a while, and I wanted the structural challenge of an armored bikini, especially hers!

The top and hip plates are 2-3 layers of wonderflex covered in stretch pvc, with craft foam inside for a bit of cushioning. The bikini bottoms are pvc lined with swimsuit material and the boots are pvc glued over a base of ballet flats. The chains are from an online seller that specializes in plastic versions, so they're lightweight and con-safe.

About a month after the con, I finished the real wig, my first real updo. More recently I finished the earrings. I still need to complete her cannon and some supplementary armor/jewelry pieces. I'm still not totally happy with the boots, so they're most likely to be fixed or replaced sometime soon.
