Getting an Evangelion Plugsuit Costume Right Is All About the Material

Cosplayer SailorMappy‘s dream cosplay was Asuka Langley’s plugsuit. The Neon Genesis Evangelion character’s outfit has a distinctive look. Because of that, it took SailorMappy a while to build up the skills and to find the right material to make the costume. The construction process included handling lycra, PVC stretch, and fiberglass. Costumes take a whole village of materials.

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 definitely 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.
