Version 1 (BAAF 2001): It was my first costume that I worn to a convention. My mom helped me out a little with the costume for version 1. From then on I started going to a lot more conventions because that costume was so well recieved it inspired me to go to more conventions. When I wore this costume it was for one day, the Saturday of Big Apple Anime Fest 2001. It was the day of the masquerade. I only did a walk on for that con.
Costume construction: Beret was bought. The hair was yarn that I made 2 long braids for and tucked it under the wig and was bobbi pinned on. The green bodysuit was heavily modified was a full body leotard, which the rest was cut and hand sewn. The red gloves were also hand sewn. Socks were purchased and boots were purchased at Payless at the time.
Update: Worn it to the Shikkaricon 2007 masquerade and did a skit.
This is version 2 of the beret, which was also purchased. The hair is now a blonde wig that was a Party store quality, I added in the braids myself. Same leotard but added the red Delta symbol on with the sewing machine. Gloves were also sewn on the sewing machine. Boots are actual military boots.
