Big Sister Cosplay- Complete by Kari--Koboyashi Big Sister Cosplay- Complete by Kari--Koboyashi
Well, Iím spoiling you guys to a look at it. My finally completed Big Sister cosplay! (Well, I still have to put in the LEDs, but that wonít be until when Iím at the con)

In total, Iíve spent about $85 and 6 months on this costume. That makes it the cheapest and the longest Iíve ever spent making a costume. I canít even tell you how proud I am of it. My cosplays before this just canít compare in any way, shape, or form.

How were you able to see through your helmet? I'm trying to put together a helmet myself, what did you use so you could see through it, but it hide your face?

The face plate was actually a plastic plate that was clear, and I took a piece of those transparent folders and fitted it to the plastic plate- and added red LEDs to make it light up

Perfect! Thank you! I sent you some questions on tumblr too, but I'll ask you here.   For the bodysuit you used the white, instead of the nude, correct? 
www.amazon.com/dp/B002KNIKIE/r…

and for these gloves that you ordered, did you choose the "coffee" cause that's the only brown color I see but it looks different from yours? Or is that just my imagination?

Oops! Sorry, I'm not on tumblr much at all...mind sending me them via message here? 

I actually don't have a body suit for my Big sister cosplat, it's just a pair of white leggings and a white long sleeved shirt- for Eleanor's Big Sister Suit, I used a the nude body suit. 

For my gloves, I just typed in "dark brown leather gloves" for my original ones and bougth a pair for about $7 on ebay, but since then I've bought some vinyl and made my own.

It's actually mostly paper mache. I used a beach ball as the base for it.

The Leg braces are also craftfoam wrapped around thin sheets of cardboard, then painted. The "joints" that allow it to move, have a screw and bolt in place to hold it together, get still allow it to move with my leg :)

I've been watching your progress on this, and I have to say its probably one of my fave big sister costumes I've seen! You've gotten all the details down correctly, and it's just generally detailed. And you only spent $86 on it?? Amazing! You ought to be proud cause this is one awesome cosplay! :D

Oh thank you so much! I'm really happy to know someone follows this work on here. I kinda gave up for a whole one DA and moved to tumbr but this makes me feel so much better

I'm so proud of this cosplay, I just...compared to my other cosplays I've made, this is a total step up. I love it to death ad I just keep looking at it and thinking "I really made this? All on my own? In my DORM room!?" XD

DA is kinda...meh these days, so I don't blame you for moving to Tumblr. But you SHOULD be proud of this. It's absoloutely awesome! :B And it just shows you have the patience to work on something so fiddly and detailed...despite the small space. A dorm?? Master piece I tell you!

:iconkari--koboyashi:
Kari--Koboyashi Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Student General Artist
Thanks so much! lol DA is alright, it just takes too long to upload things, so I don't hardly do WIPS on here unless it's alot of stuff I got done at once. All my "daily WIPS" go on my tumblr anymore. it's just easier and I get better/more feedback on there.
