Phew!! It's been forever since I've been on Deviantart!
After two months of slowly working on this costume, it's finally done! I'm gonna do an actual write-up on this costume this time, due to all of the work that went into it!

The jacket is my own drafted pattern, and then all of the appliques were cut out of this silvery pleather-like stuff and zig-zagged stitched onto the jacket with silver embroidery thread. Although I do similar work for my hoodies, this was a whole new obstacle to tackle @_@ I originally used wig hair for the hair, but it tangled up and got super messy really quick (especially once I added the pendants), so I switched it out for 36"-long fringe that I got here: www.decoratingstudio.com/Trim/…
The pendants are made out of craft foam!
This was my first time working with stretch fabrics like this since I was in dance-- the cutouts in back should've been more square-shaped, but it was hard enough to even tackle the concept, let along figure out a way to keep a more stiff shape. In the end, it would've prolly involved using a more leathery fabric for the whole catsuit, and since I actually LIKE to be able to move around in costume, I used rubber-coated spandex for the black sections, and lycra for the gray parts. The appliques are made and sewn on the same way as they were for the jacket, except this time I used a stretchy silver!
As you can see, I used my own hair-- it's not the perfect style, but I'm always happy when I put my own twist/personality into a cosplay, and I love my hair, so I was okay with this
The guns are made out of PVC piping for the barrels, insulation foam for for handle, craft foam for the details, and practically all covered in worbla to make them sturdier. The shoes are repainted $6 boots from Forever 21-- they used to be brown, I think
I guess you get inventive when you start running out of money! I screwed the guns into the shows with 3" screws, and even E6000-ed them on, just to be sure. The charms on the guns were all the same necklace pendant from Jo-ann's, I just painted them all different.
And there you have it! Lemme know if you have any questions about construction!
