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!

the floating cups would'be been great,especially given your curves,but its damn cool that you managed to pull it together without them and the suit still looks correct.
Im still amazed though how much work you put into something that in the end looks simple. Its so clean and perfect,it doesnt even look handmade. Shame you omitted the red stripes on the shoes,they could've tied-in better with the rest,however im also thinking that you might reuse them later and it would've not been possible had you painted the parts.
