Shiro's secret identity, her hidden persona, her split personality: The Red Man, The Wretched Egg.

I completed this cosplay just in time for Anime Central at the end of April 2012! I debuted it at the masquerade at ACen {which was a huge disaster -_-} and wore it around the con for a few hours total. 

Construction: The entire bodysuit is lined with bathing suit lining. This means that I don't have to wear anything else underneath it. And I didn't. Indeed, I can't! If I wear anything underneath the cosplay it doesn't fit right. But I mean, what would Shiro do? ;) The bodysuit is made out of stretch satin (pink) and stretch jaquard (purple). I made a pattern to fit myself from scratch, then made the bodysuit accordingly. I made the entire thing out of the pink satin, then sewed the purple patterned pieces on top of that, so for the arms and legs there are actually three layers of fabric! It is held onto my body with a series of snaps at the shoulders.
The collar was made in an experimental process. I used a lot of different materials, trying to get it right, and while I'm still not completely satisfied, I've had enough of it to not want to remake it for a while. I started with plastic embroidery mesh, layered craft foam on top, white glued the hell out of it, then mod podged some cheesecloth on top, mod podged some more, and some more, then painted, then painted again, then again, then sealed a couple of times with more mod podge. Can you tell I <3 mod podge? Oh, and the chain links were made out of FIMO-Air Clay!

Cost: The entire costume ended up costing about $120 to make myself. Probably more like $100 because I bought way too much pink and purple fabric just in case I screwed up.  

So I love Shiro. And I love this cosplay. I'm going to wear it again at NMACon in Traverse City in September, and I can't wait!!
