Silent Softness by Elle-Cosplay Silent Softness 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.

Beautiful work!  Have you considered moving the belt to make it like an empire waist dress? Just an idea I was wondering about.

You make such a pretty Rei. Hard to be exclusively an Asuka fan with cosplayers like you. Only thing that seems a bit off to me is the position of your hairclips. i feel like they should be higher on the scalp.

I would norally sit them higher, but with this wig, the lacing underneath doens't allow the clip to go through the netting because of how tight was lace is. When I cosplay it to a con I plan on cuting a whole higher up so I attach them...otherwise they fall out.
