Rei Ayanami by Elle-Cosplay Rei Ayanami by Elle-Cosplay
So she never actually wears a sundress in the anime but I thought since asuka had one why not? 

I designed and drafted the pattern myself and I adore how this dress came out, I may use it in the future for another character if it comes up. Its made from quilting cotton and I added the grey waist belt it break up the amount of why in the outfit.  The accents are all done in navy blue instead of white to tie in the wig.

The wig is my favourite out of the entire cosplay to be honest, I adore how the colour looks on camera and in person, very toned down from the normal rei wig colours which I think works well for a more *realistic* take on her and it should translate well to th rest of the cosplays, like it did for the bodypaint set I did of the Plugsuit.

I kept the make up very simple for this look as well.

I've always been an Asuka fan to the death, but I can't deny how cute a character Rei is either. you really brought out her femininity with this cosplay.


I agree with the wig, when people cosplay Asuka and Rei they tend to go with hot marker style colors which make the cosplay look cartoony. If blue was truly a natural hair color, it would most likely be toned down like this.

Goog job.

thanks so much, this is my favourite wig of my collection just because of the tones throughout it. It has greys, silver, blue, light blue, white and even the tiniest bit of purple in it to give it a different hue. I agree with the way too bright of colour, it's why in my asuka cosplays I use the brown/orange wig instead of orange. I'm really glad you like how I portrayed Rei.
