I think this is the most significant and important cosplay to date. I always wanted to do this one since i started cosplaying, Asuka is my favorite character ever and i absolutely love the design of the plugsuit, you could say that this is my dream cosplay, the only thing that kept me from doing it was the perfect material. I had a bunch of failures before completing this, i tried before to buy a full pvc bodysuit and when it arrived it was VERY shiny lycra, it was difficult to find a way to buy the fabric from another country but when i did i definetely knew i could achieve making it, no matter how difficult it would be sewing it. I used pvc stretch, black lycra and the neck pieces are made of fiberglass. Also, i improved the wig, i didn't like the bright orange one i had for Asuka's hair, i always imagined her as a natural redhead, so i bought a light brown wig and dyed it with orange sharpies to achieve this color. I did this mostly by myself but couldn't have done it without the help of a lot of friends, thank you all! I really hope you like my cosplay as much as i did.

Creo que este es mi cosplay más significativo hasta ahora. Siempre había querido hacerlo desde que empecé a hacer cosplay, Asuka es mi personaje favorito y realmente amo el diseño del plugsuit, se puede decir que este es mi cosplay soñado, lo único que no me dejaba hacerlo era el material perfecto. Tuve un montón de fallos antes de completar este, antes traté de comprar un traje completo de pvc pero cuando me llegó era lycra lamé MUY brillante, fue muy difícil encontrar una manera de comprar la tela desde otro país pero cuando lo hice definitivamente supe que podría hacerlo, sin importar lo difícil que fuera coserlo. Usé PVC stretch, lycra negra y las piezas del cuello están hechas de fibra de vidrio con masilla. Además, mejoré la peluca, no me gustaba la peluca naranja brillante que tenía para el cabello de Asuka, siempre la imaginé como una peliroja natural, así que compré una peluca castaña clara y la teñí a mano con sharpies naranjas para lograr este color. Lo hice mayormente yo pero no pude haberlo logrado sin la ayuda de muchos amigos, ¡muchas gracias a todos! De verdad espero que les guste mi cosplay tanto como a mi.

Im curious how is it wearing a bodysuit? Is it super hot and keeps the heat in, or is it tolerable? I might get one for a female captain America but wanted to get some feedback first (: Thank you!

It wasn't hot at all, it was really fresh actually. For me it was like not wearing anything (?) hahaaha the only uncomfortable parts was the neck, the rest was cool, if i had access to PVC fabric i'll make a lot of costumes with that.

This is probably the most beautiful cosplay I've ever seen. I'm hoping to cosplay Rei with the plugsuit and all, but I'm not too good at sewing. How'd you do this so well??? And also, what'd you use for the shoes?

Thank you so much! i'm not that good at sewing either but this plugsuit was my dream cosplay and i've been thinking about how to do it for several years, just imagination, i don't know any theory or techniques, i've "learned" to sew by myself, you just have to put your imagination to fly and make a lot if mistakes haha (i've made so many, but that's how i learn) The shoes were some snorkeling shoes i bought and cutted, i hand sewed the fabric to the sole, i think there are better ways to do it but that's what i figured out. Here are some pics of my progress www.facebook.com/media/set/?se…

Thank you so much!! And I was wondering, where you got the fabric to make this and if I can't manage that maybe where I might by a suit I could alter for not too much?
