You read it!
You saw it!
My next cosplay is going to be Ryuko Matoi (once again) now in her notorious Junketsu override mode. I have hate love relationship with this outfit. First when i watched Kill la Kill i thought this must be one of the most horrid outfits they have designed in this show but the second time around my feelings changed and fell for the outfit. Ryuko was something else in Junketsu.
A total bad ass! And a total bitch! Well Bitchiness aside she overcame Junketsus power and once again showed us that she is the real shit!
I started from the "horns" and made them out of white fimo and painted over with white acrylic gloss paint color.
I will hot glue or epoxy glue them on to the wig.
I went to eurokangas and started mission: seek for perfect fabrics!
I decided that I will make the torso and hands from faux leather or spandex(wich one I find) and the pant parts from satin.
I bought 1kg (about 1,50*1,50m) satin for 11 euros just enough for the pants
After studying the reference pictures I decided that I will make the pants from 10 pieces.
Let the calculus begin!
Needed length is 65 cm. My thigh is 53cm in diameter and i need 10 pieces, so each piece is 5,3cm on top and it spreads little so the bottom is about 7 cm so the bottom diameter is then 70 cm.
This was the easy part. The hard part was to make straight lines without ruler so my lovely boyfriend made me a my own ruler out of scrap wood <3
I transferred the pattern and cut 20 identical pieces and sew them together.
I sew pieces together and zig zag the seams so the wouldn't fray (since i don't have serger).
This was my first time working on satin i'm happy how good it went.
No horror stories this time :)
ready leg from the inside.
The teeth are made out of craft foam.
These look like Digimon hands :D

I'm so happy with the outcome now I have to find away to keep these bad boys up!
