Made for: AWA 2004
Julia is probably the one element that drew
me into this anime. I guess the whole Romeo and Juliet thing she and Spike have
going on captivated me, then the rest of the characters just grew on me.
This is probably one of
the easier costumes I've done. I got the pattern for the cat suit from
greenpepper and modified it. If I ever do this one over, I'll make it longer in
the torso so the fabric lays along my curves instead of stretching over them and
making me look straight. The belt was kind of a fun thing to figure out. I ended
up making it in polymer clay, which looked really good, but was also very frail.
Next time I'll try paperclay with a wire base.
