Variation: Cat Suit
Worn at: Fandom Fest 2013, NYCC 2013, Otakon 2013
Motivation: I have loved Fujiko for so long so once I got ahold of some perfect cat suit fabric I took the plunge
Construction: The suit pattern was from Kwick-sew, I had to taken in the waist and lengthen the torso. The fabric is a latex coated spandex that gives off this really nice shine while not being too difficult to get on. I later on learned that coating myself in antiperspirant powder from Ben Nye helped to get the suit on better then lube or oil. The wig was a great find at a local wig store here in Boston.
Thoughts: This costume marks a change in my costuming styles. I decided to embrace my body more and show it off, in the future I won’t hesitate to make sexier costumes.
