My second attempt at cosplay, and other than falling out of my top half the time and wearing the garter on the wrong leg =( and a lot of places where I was too lazy to hem, I was happy with how it came out overall!
Top: A blue bra I found at Target, cut off the straps, attached clear ones. Found black irrigation tubing at Home Depot, threaded 9mm copper wire through, sewed it on.
Antennae: Used the same copper wire, covered in green fabric. Sewed it to a headband. Stiff pennant fabric in light blue for the tassel tails, attached tassels to the ends, painted 3/4s of them black with acrylic paint. Half domes are model magic painted shiny blue.
Belly chain: threaded beads with fishing wire. Attached white tassels, used markers to create yellow gradient.
Hip ribbons: green fabric, painted Yevon symbols on.
Bracelets: Gold Egyptian looking , bangles at Charlotte Russe
Necklace: I was lucky to find a necklace containing those shark teeth beads at Target!! Pronged off the excess decorations and painted it blue.
