Character: Misato's Plugsuit Dress (based on this collectible figure designed by Shunya Yamashita: [link]
Costume entirely made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photographed by BigWhiteBazooka Photography [link]

I remember watching Evangelion as a kid when the first release of good fansubs hit, many years ago. Of course it had a huge impact on me as an anime fan, and artist. Over the years I have always wanted to make a plugsuit from EVA but my favorite character was Misato, who's outfits were simplistic and casual.
FINALLY, someone designs a plugsuit-ish outfit for Misato, and it is very fan service and revealing. But it's probably the closest I'll ever get to see Misato in a plugsuit, and I decided to make the outfit. From the get-go, I wanted to make modesty alterations to the outfit, so my dress is longer and there are no floating boob cups, just flattering princess seams.
I used 4-way stretch PVC to make a base dress with front and side seams, then cut it up to create all the interesting top-stitched seams on the design, while interjecting navy blue faux leather panels. I patterned everything myself, which meant a lot of mock-ups in cheap left over spandex and drawing lines on them. I also patterned and made the thigh highs and arm sleeve things, as well as the hip rolls and all the accessories. I even made my gloves. To achieve the shapes needed, I used everything from EVA foam in various thicknesses, worbla, floral foam, and squishy tube foam. Everything was covered in PVC for that unified sleek plugsuit look. I also cast aluminum powdered buttons and round side pieces. Work in progress collage: [link]

I love my fun futuristic booties, which were a lucky find online.

My wig was sponsored by AnimeStuffStore.com - [link]
I cut about a foot off, and styled the bangs ala Misato.

To my knowledge, technically it's not Shunja Yamashita that designed this suit, it's the E2046 Ori Team that created the Misato Plugsuit figure "inspired" by the Rei Yamashita illustration... ;p

Anyway , you are great ! That a superb cosplay ! :w00t:

Misato's frickin awesome, she had to lug poor little Shinji around. Gotta give the gal props for putting up with his emotional baggage! And I give you props for rockin' her hair! Some people get the hair a little too short and achieve mullet status... But yours is EXCELLENT!

I like your version with the modesty alterations better. It just makes more sense. Some of those designs must utilize glue or the power of fanboy wishful thinking to stay on. LOL
