Dirty Pair Flash
Last Updated: 07-10-2017
LOVELY ANGELS!! I recently discovered my friend NeoQueenHoneyBee and I share a love of many of the same older anime series and we decided it would be a tragedy if we didn't cosplay from them together. So, we started with Dirty Pair Flash!
The wig is an Arda Silky Venus. I think I would like to buy a pack of wefts to match so that there is more hair for the braids but this wig is still incredibly thick and easy to comb.
The blue (hair tie, choker, leotard) are Yaya Han's cosplay spandex. It is SO thick and soft and the stretch is great, and it's not shiny at all, which was important to me. I used a variant on the "Swan Lake" bodysuit pattern.
The "dress" I patterned from scratch and fitted and cut and pinned until I had... Well, whatever you want to call that ridiculous piece. It's like... A top... And a skirt... but it's connected in the back?? IDFK. Anyway, I patterned it from scratch with some muslin then when I had it figured out, I cut it out of some matte white pleather that NQHB found locally. The gold bias tape is all made from the Yaya Han gold pleather. It was tricky to sew pleather into bias tape, but holy moly do I LOVE the outcome! The red accents (except the glove) are the Yaya Han shiny stretch pleather stuff.
The glove was purchased because I didn't have time to make a glove from scratch in time for Fanime... I'd like to make a matching glove out of the same fabric as the collar and sleeves for next time.
The boots are the boots leftover from my Bride Tira Misu cosplay.
I LOVE this costume a lot more than I anticipated, and I'm really excited to make her light sword and a new glove for the next time I wear it! :D
