Since I'm attending an "anime"con at the end of the month, I wanted to cosplay something more anime like. Since Robots in Disguise is technically an anime.... it works. Plus, T-AI is a rare cosplay at an anime con or a Transformers convention. And I plan to wear her at TFCon too.
Start date: 01/01/2012
Goal date: Ohayocon 2012 (Jan. 27th - 29th)
Completed date: N/A
Budget: Under $150.00
Here are some materials I bought for the costume today:
What I'm using:
dark red pvc/pleather
What I need to purchase yet:
- a headband for her headpiece/hat
- at least 6-8 large, orange buttons
- yellow material for the pouch
- four buttons for the jacket
- fimo to make the triangle button
- white strap across her chest
I purchased the tights tonight on welovecolors.com along with the pattern on ebay. Both should arrive before next week. I also purchased shoes that I will have to paint and add onto the bootcovers to. I'm still figuring this one out. This is why it's not posted yet.
