Yoruichi Shihouin (Battle Outfit)
DescriptionAN 10' <3!
Edit: It was so much fun!
Let's see...I really love this cosplay and the character is just so awesome I had a blast cosplaying her! The wig was an ordered character wig (which is why it came with a ponytail), but I was dissatisfied with the base so I spiked it up to make it look more like her hair. It was my first spiking experience, and I'm very happy with it!
The hair tie was made out of a scrap of fabric from scarf (which I remade from my Yoruichi First Outfit cosplay). It was kind of a pain to tie in but the red tie made everything come together.
I also remade the armwarmers (I looped around the blue instead of sewing individual loops after seeing that they were incorrect), but kept the legwarmers after washing them.
I sewed the halter top and painted on the sting mark with white fabric paint, then I sewed the whole thing to a pair of tights (store bought) to make the bodysuit. The tube top underneath was also self-made because I couldn't find one that worked (which was actually really hard for me, it's supposed to be so simple, but I actually struggled a lot with that tube XD).
The shoes were originally white; I spray painted them brown, then covered the whole thing in brown spandex to turn them a lighter brown.
For the sting tattoos, I drew the one on my face myself (using eyeliner of all things XD) with a stencil.
*The day of the con I actually drew the whole thing on the wrong side of my face because I was to excited to pay attention...after debating I finally decided to rub it off and do it on the correct side XD!*
I got a friend to draw the ones on the back of my shoulder and the one on my arm because I couldn't reach >_<.
I got my contacts 2 days before the con, and I love them, though they show up a lot better in sunlight.
Finally I coloured my eyebrows with this awesome coloured hair gel stuff I found in the dollar store! I love it, it stayed on all day~!
My little brother cosplayed Urahara with me in this version. I sewed his outfit for him as well, and we had a good time. I like her battle outfit alot because it was comfortable and I wasn't horribly hot all day!
