Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop
Last Updated: 07-03-2007
I will be cosplaying along with my boyfriend at this year's Anime Expo and San Diego Comic Con 2007 Spike and Julia from Cowboy Bebop, our favorite anime.... it's all about the Corgi EIN ;-)
Items which went into making Spike and Julia's costumes:
Spike - purchased suit, jacket and pants, from a local thrift shop for about 15 bucks and totally reconstructing it. Adding the light blue lining, lapel and two strap closures. Black skinny tie was purchased as well.
Spike - Purchased ankle high black leather boots and covering them with navy blue spandex material to resemble Spike's boots.
Spike - Green hair dye and one brown contact lens for the (real) eye on the left and a lighter brown/hazel reddish color for Spike's (fake) eye on the right.
Spike/Julia- Purchased raw hyde leather, customizing, dye and molding it, to make Spike's gun holster also for Julia's metal belt which I sculpted and casted out of resin, airbrushed chrome and held together with customized black leather straps, buckles and D-ring at back.
Julia - Black cat suit. Customized and sewn out of black 4-way stretch spandex vinyl which given to me by a friend ;)
Julia - Purchased clay for sculpting, silicon molding and resin materials to create and customize Julia's belt, zipper decoration (penguin shape) and wrist band. All will be finished, airbrushed with a chrome textured colored paint.
Julia - Purchased raw hyde leather to make belt straps for Julia's completed belt; metal buckles and D-ring for back.
Julia - Purchased black 2 inch heel boots to closely resemble the action figure.
Julia - Purchased blond wig with bangs and black sunglasses.
