Elfen Lied cosplay thread

Okay, so...
There needs to be a thread for this that isn't character-specific.


I'm working on Lucy, with bandages, vectors and the helmet (or possibly half-helmet) and would love to discuss this process with other Elfen Lied cosplayers.

Anyone else working on an Elfen Lied cosplay?

Currently working on my own full containment helmet.... and thinking about bandaging one arm....
Only have a few more things to get done within the next 3 weeks!!! XD

Yet I have found the biggest hurdle is not having the same products in Australia as in America... Would have made my life easier!! :P

My dream Elfen Lied cosplay is Mariko, complete with a wheelchair and vectors. =D I actually have patterns for the main parts of her outfit, but I've got a couple other costumes I want to finish first.

Wow! You did an amazing job. The texture of the helmet looks really nice -- just like real metal.

I'm currently making a Lucy cosplay of her outfit she wears with the green hat. ^_^ Really excited for this one! I just finished the hat and I ordered my patterns today.
Here's my finished hat:

Yay! Elfen Lied cosplay thread
I'm going to start working on a 'bandaged Lucy' soon, with vectors and a helmet. But i'm not sure whether it will be the half one or full.

OH HELL! YOUR HELMET IS AMAZING!
Seriously!!
Do you mind how you made it? Did you use a tutorial?

It looks like the real thing

I'm not working on one currently, but I'm sort of known for my Lucy. I do the black dress from the last arc of the anime. Originally I did bandage Nana as I have come across promotional pictures of her in bandages, not just Lucy. Basically I wore a white bikini and covered that and plus some with bandages. The "family-friendly" con made me cover up and my mom forced me to retire it and not upload any photos of it on the internet.

So I tried to find something that would work as Nana's black/navy dress but couldn't. I didn't have a sewing machine at the time so making it wasn't an option. I did find things that would work for Lucy's outfit and that's how that cosplay got started. The first time I wore Lucy to a con, I used the same wig as Nana because Lucy cut her hair short around that time. But I found that people tend to forget that and because it was a cheap wig, I replaced it with a long one.

On a bit of a side-note at Naka this year, someone told me they checked out my cosplay.com profile just because of the Lucy cosplay.

I'm working on Lucy with the bandages and helmet. It's been a very educated journey and a struggle at that. It took me forever to understand the basics of pepakura, resin, etcetera. This is one of my first cosplays so I wanted to search the forums before jumping into anything. the only way i can think of making the helmet is the pepakura way. Any suggestions/tips?

I also ordered my wig and it should be coming soon! I'm excited for that. Her hair is a unique color.

I now have to look for red contacts since I'm going off the anime version of her. Does anyone know a good website? I have dark eyes.

OH ALSO (sorry for all the questions) but what would you wear in the case of shoes? I don't want to break the image with regular footwear but she's nude the whole time and bare feet at a con sounds plain weird. I was thinking skin-colored jazz shoes? I don't know.


THANKS, I'm glad to see other Elfen Lied cosplayers.

I have cosplayed Lucy, but her version from the end of the series with the short hair and grey dress. I have to say that her hair color is probably the most challenging thing to get just perfect.
