Spike Spiegel for SDCC 2017

I had an idea for a while about making a girl!version of Spike Spiegel for a convention. So, not quite a business skirt version and not quite a complete guy version earlier. My interpretation would be to keep mostly same elements so you’d be able to tell what I was still. Much like my Punk Sailor Mars cosplay, I tried to keep the sailor collar and bow so you would know it was maybe Sailor Mars!

I have seen previous versions of girl!version Spike, but didn’t like the idea of wearing a business skirt to a convention. The mobility in tight business skirts isn’t that great. I also felt like if Spike was the girl in the anime… the outfit would still be shorts like Faye’s. Faye, Julia and Electra (the movie) all wear shorts, catsuit or pants so that’s also my logic there. Though, I was very surprised how hard it was to find navy blue business shorts that were the right blue. The jacket and shirt were slightly easier, white button up dyed banana yellow. I also managed to find a thin enough blazer that would work!

Once I’m done, I’ll of course post more progress pictures! After all, it’s almost July! Ahh!
