Competitions: None
Awards: None
Status: Completed

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.
