From: Cowboy Bebop

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.
