Concealed Heart by daydreamernessa Concealed Heart by daydreamernessa
I first got into EVA when I was the ripe age of 14 (eva pilot age whoop whoop!) When it was airing on KTEH on Sunday nights!

This series has stuck with me, even though early on I had very little understanding of the concepts. It just seemed so confusing and there are so many theories about the series and the events and what everything is isn't etc. But this series is very nostalgic for me. The music the animation, and the character designs just fill me with a lot of emotions and happiness.

I've always daydreamed about doing a plugsuit, but never pinpointed if I ever would go down that road. But earlier this year I decided on a whim to buy 8 yards of stretch vinyl and said maybe i'll do it as a fall costume project. Months past, the material just sat around.

But it was destiny that I went and bought material, because one of my most idolized character designers/mangaka Sadamoto was invited to Japan Expo just a month and half out. AKA he's the man who designed my most favorite character!!!!

I knew that I had to make a plugsuit happen. This is version 1.0 haha, I had run out of time and left details off, and made do with what I had finished. I'm really ecstatic to have accomplished this costume and can't wait to make a 2.0 with all the details I couldn't do cause of time constraints!

I had the pleasure of working with ShiyaWind www.facebook.com/ShiyaWind and photographer Darkain- www.facebook.com/DarkainMultim…

Holy Cow Batman!

Superbly put together and well worn/modelled.  Just took a little looksy through your gallery...

...didn't realise how talented you are:

Model? Hell. Yes!
Costume designer?  You bet!
Fashion design?  More than likely!
Drawing skills?  Like... Totally!

Begs the question, so just what is it you do for a living?

Now, I feel I must stop your head from growing too big, but also re-assert what little is left of the tattered shreds of my masculinity:

Ah! Thanks.  I'm just glad I managed to get away with the boner comment! lol

Fashion design, eh? It certainly shows!  You have some awesome stuff in your gallery...

I bet you've moved beyond simple customization in your everyday wear as well...

But...but...IT'S SO PURDY!!!!! (Finished or not.) I love Asuka most too. I am mostly German, so I guess that's why (I have the same temper. Too bad I'm not ginger like her.)

If I didn't know you were brunette naturally, I would totally think this was your natural hair. This hair color is really gorgeous on you. It's the perfect Asuka red too. Sometimes people get it too orangey-red or too blue-red; this is the perfect color. The PERFECT shade.

How'd you manage to get it all combined but still form fitting? It looks like parts are glued on but others look sewn in. You really do have her stern gaze down.

I remember the first time watching Eva. Though I was always a Rei fan.

the orange cups are taped on, as well as the black leg stripes- due to time constraints i didn't have any other choice to do it quick and clean)

the black lines are sewn on top of the suit, and i could go on, but yeah! The hard neck piece was based off a plaster mold of my body so that's why the armor bit isn't bulky~ ty very much though :)

I might actually do a rei in the future to go with my friend who is also an Asuka girl haha

Clever! I the final result looks really seamless and comes together brilliantly. Hopefully you'll come to a convention in Northern Cali so I can see it in person.

It'd be really trippy if you did Rei and did a photoshoot as both characters.
