- Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
Cons worn to: Anime Central 2011
& PAX East 2012
Awards won: 1st Place ACP Stocking Cosplay Contest
From the very moment I watched the
promotion trailer for this anime on youtube, I fell
in love with Stocking. When the series came out
and I was watching it, I found that my love for
stocking right off the bat was for a reason. I can
relate to her in ways, specially with the love of
sweets and goth stuff! Her hair style also appealed
to me since it consists of my two favorite colors!
So I was quite happy when PeachyKiki
came to me and asked if I wanted to do these costumes
for Anime Central 2011!
This is the first cosplay that I have ever worn
contacts for. I just wanted to get that dolly-eye
look, so I purchased some green circle lenses.
Needless to say, I love them! To me, her eyes
look green, but I know others find it to be a
teal or even blue. I decided to make this costume
out of bridal satin. A nice white fabric that
is opaque and can't be seen through easily. However,
the top likes to pull in funny ways due to the
fabric grain. Perhaps I shall re-make the top
when I have the time. The wings, stockings, collar,
headbow, and armwarmers where super easy to construct.
I am super happy with how my corset turned out,
and it is even lined with a blue and white striped
I even made my own honekoneko plush bag so I
could have something to carry my stuff in while
I wondered around the convention floor!
PeachyKiki made our hearts out of vaccuum formed
plastic which we just sewed onto our costumes.
