Ayanami Rei [Dream
Series: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Debut: Nan Desu Kan 2006
I did a Rei
costume a long time ago. We don't talk about it any more. XD
Anyway, this came about because my friends over at Assassins Inc.
said, "Hey, guys, we're gonna do Misato and Kaji!" and my
friend (and usual photographer) Laura said, "ZOMG, can we be
Rei and Asuka?" and then our other friends Emily and Mandi got
in on it as Shinji and Ritsuko, and suddenly we had a group!
In any case, this was just tons of fun, and my costume was pretty
much a purchase-and-alteration costume. The wig, skirt, and
sweater came from Ebay, the shoes came from the Goodwill (you know I
love the second hand shopping, I do), and the red tie came from
Walmart. ^^ The shirt I already had, and simply altered
for the short sleeves. We all had tons of fun running around,
and especially the photoshoot with Lionel, who is awesome as
always. ^^ A second photoshoot was also done with Laura
and Emily, with Laura's camera being manned by Christine of
Lilacwire Cosplay. ^^
This costume debuted at Nan Desu Kan 2006.
