Gaaaaah! I can't get over how amazing this photo is! We're starting the 2013 Fanime coverage with a Bang!

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

I'm super grateful to the 4 fantastic photographers and videographers who came to the photo location with me, which was a little further away from the convention. Martin did his magic and I couldn't be happier with the image!
