Ho boy. It’s crazy how New Years can motivate you to finish the things you’d never thought you’d finish. This was one of them.
I think I started this project about a year ago and barely finished yesterday. I worked on it on and off because making this costume later made me realize that this was a little out of my league. But I man’d up and managed to get ‘er done. The character the costume is based off of is Lady Deathstrike. I wanted to take on one of her more recent looks since I haven’t seen any cosplayers dressed up as this particular version yet.
I like documenting the “stages” of getting ready. First pic: No makeup and hair not did. This is what I look like by default. 2nd pic: I put on the makeup. 3rd pic: I put on the first layer of costume. 4th pic: I put on the wig and then I turn into a geisha tranny.
The final product! The costume is obviously no where near perfect, but from what little experience I have with armor-making, it’s not too shabby. I’m looking forward to planning my next costume. I think it’s going to be more armor-heavy this time.
