“I sort of just thought this up one night as I was drifting off to sleep. Rather, I thought of elements that I wanted in this costume. It started off as just a skirt, and then evolved into something much more extravagant, as you’ll see below.
The pattern I used was for a ‘56 dress (Butterick Retro 5813 ‘C’), and I realized in retrospect that it would have been a hundred times easier to have used the Voyager jumpsuit pattern and modify it to my whim. Oops. :P
I think the hardest part was the different bodice pieces, not to mention working with polyester taffeta (something I vow never to do again, thank you), but really, the whole thing was a much bigger undertaking than I could have imagined. I went into this as a ‘just for fun’ thing… ha!”
That’s it. She wins. Game over for everyone else. She. Wins. Cosplay.
“Wheeee <3 I had already worn my Wall-E cosplay in march but we did not really get nice photos then. So now my EVE and I wore the cosplays again at the Dokomi in Düsseldorf (Germany) and finally managed to shoot some nice pictures ♥ My EVE ~akumanokeki is the photographer. Thank you, dear. <3 Check out her cosplay, she’s such a cute EVE!! [link] Maybe I’ll upload some photos of us together in the next days.”
