When a friend made some inquiries in Twitter about a cosplay group for NGE (after they announced Megumi Ogata being one the guests at the con) I decided to ditch my original plan and make Asuka's third version for Frostbite.
In a way this version was a lot easier and faster to make than her original, but also a new sewing challenge. I have never sewed closed patterns before, and this was all about that oh boy. I did get the hang of it fairly fast though, and with a little practice I'm sure it'll be a very useful skill to have. The costume is made from vinyl(4-way stretch this time), white and purple scuba lycra, and normal black lycra. I chose to use matte fabrics for the purple and white to have the contrast with the shiny vinyl that's seen in the concept art. The details are cut from plastic sheet and sanded, and the batteryback is cardboard covered with the vinyl. There's also space for my phone and some cash.
I inserted a led in her eye patch to have the mysterious glow in it.
