Just a friendly reminder that Anno and Co. originally intended for Rei Ayanami to creep the hell out of us.
Rei was, for all intents and purposes, a personified backlash against the hordes of 80s and early 90s fanboys who slobbered over female characters, and who figured that having a 2D girl that obeyed your every whim and had no voice as your own personal fuckdoll would be pretty damned sweet.
In other words, they wanted a placid, soulless little girl to wank over.
And Anno delivered. Oh, boy, did he deliver.
This is my She-Ra cosplay that I finished constructing a few days ago.
I take my cosplaying very seriously. I put a lot of heart and work into making all my things from scratch, into the details, and into having a very well constructed outfit. But nothing really grinds my gears as much as not being taken seriously as a cosplayer due to my size 20 hips. Like, wow, the size of my waist does not detract how flippin’ stellar the paint job on my armor is.
My point is, make the best costume you possibly can. Everyone else can shut their mouths as they gawk at your bodacious cosplaying self.
I love everything about this!!!
This is awesome! Her armor IS phenomenal. The entire costume is fantastic!
I only wish I could make bracers that awesome!
