I was not prepared.
So I had already made a (fail) plugsuit, and then I saw the newest trailer for Evangelion 3.0 and decided that as bad as my plugsuit was, patching it up would make it look somewhat better. (Plus if it's damaged, it's supposed to look kinda bad, right?) Plus, I really really wanted to make this before the movie actually came out, and even though this costume has made me shed many many tears (while making it AND while putting it on) I am very proud of it.
This is the most challenging costume I have ever made, and many aspects of it were firsts for me. It was my first time working with vinyl, I sewed to wigs together for her hair, this was my first time patterning my own costume all from scratch and not just altering an existing one, and my first time doing boot covers. It still has many flaws but I am very, very happy for even attempting this costume. I am a gigantic fan of Asuka and Evangelion and so doing this costume has been a dream of mine for some time, and I think it can only get better from here.
I used a two inch heel shoe for the boot covers instead of flats because in flats my legs look really wide and stumpy. I'm usually proud of my big thighs but in a plugsuit -- not so much. If I can think of anything else I will put it here c:
