Leeron Ritona

Gurren Lagann



I really had a lot of fun making this costume. The bodysuit is actually made from two pieces instead of one: a turtleneck and leggings. The yellow strips on the sides of the turtleneck are made from a sort of silken fabric which was really difficult to keep from unraveling. (Fun fact: this is the first costume I've actually sewn myself.)

The boots aren't exactly the same boots that Leeron wears in the show, but they were too awesome for me to pass up. Plus, I could totally see Leeron wearing them. I also wasn't able to figure out how to sew the yellow trimming around the collar while still being able to get my head through the neck of the shirt, but when I figure out how to do that I'll add it on.

Luckily, I didn't have to buy a wig for this costume since my hair is already really short, so I used colored green hair gel to style and tint it. I lightened my eyebrows using concealer and an eyebrow pencil, and used concealer and lip gloss for the lips.

All in all, it was really fun to wear, and aside from the makeup and the hair preparations, it didn't take too long to put on, either.
