So I'll be attending a formal New Years cosplay event, which is going to be totally exciting.
I agreed to sew a nice vest for my boyfriend to be a human version of Wheatley from Portal. It's going really well, but I'm a little stuck on my end.
I was originally going to go as someone else, but I've changed my mind. I want to be an Aperture test participant instead so we can go as a couple.
The thing is, Chell only ever wears the jumpsuit and tank top, which is hardly suitable for a formal event. I'd like to make a dress that is both formal and long enough for the event while also being in the spirit of the character, but I'm not sure what type/style of dress would work.
Any advice on designing a formal version of a cosplay like this?
