I really don't know what initially fueled me to make this costume on such short notice. I absolutely adora Slayers, and I have a Lina costume in the works, but...holy crap I love Xellos! I'm really not sure if I can pull him off, but I love the episode in NEXT where the guys have to get dressed in drag to enter the city of Femille, where shrine maidens live and study. I wanted to make something easy and fun for MetroCon, and I guess that's where the inspiration came from. It makes me kinda sad that people nowadays don't really watch Slayers, and it's an alternate outfit so only my friends who love Slayers knew who I was, which I expected, lol. And yes, the boobs are totally...not real. I don't have a rack anywhere near that size. It was a small challenge to get the dress made to fit proportions that I'm not quite used to having to make things for, haha.
Photo was taken by Dressdragn (CosClips) at the Tampa Convention Center this past weekend.

Wow. I found this way late, but you did a great job! My friend is looking to do Xellos in drag this year - and I'll be doing Zelgadis in drag for MetroCon. Never found any cosplay of this until your pic!
