Purple Heart Cosplay - Wip 1 by GiH-Crafting Purple Heart Cosplay - Wip 1 by GiH-Crafting
Here's my secret cosplay I've been working on for around 2 months now! After Otakuthon in Montréal, me and one of my friend had this great, also bad, idea to make Purple Heart in Hyperdimension Neptunia. But not only the small suit, we want to make all the props, and it includes the LEDs in these. This is a pretty damn huge project for the year and I'm hoping to be going into mascarade with this!! For now, I was able to make the suit before Halloween. I'm still not done yet, but the biggest part is done for now. We tested the solidity of the costume at Halloween yesterday and now we are able to correct everything defecting elements in it. 
This WIP is not a tutorial, but I still added some notes if it interest some of you :) 
The LEDs part is all done by my friend so I can't answer your questions unfortunately ! :/ He's not often on DA but you can always ask him some questions > wwwiiilll Speaking of him, big thanks for his hard work !! he did a really awesome job and I'm really happy about the result for the breast part !! :D 
I will show more WIP eventually !

Whoa what material did you use for your suit??
GiH-Crafting Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Student General Artist
I sooo don't remember the same honestly. I just... choose it in the fabric store :'D But if I can recommand you something. Use a 4 ways strechy fabric if you want to make a suit similar to this. 'Cause mine was not strechy and was a realy paint in the ass to put on. :/ As for the purple lines, do nooooot paint. With a strechy fabric, the paint is going to crac and look terrible. So, I know it sounds painfull and hard, but sew some purple ribbon instead ^^

I'm planning on cosplaying Black Heart in the future, with her wings and weapon, ^^
I have to sew the ribbon on? Ohhhhh boy.
This will be my first time making something complicated like this, so I really appreciate the tips ^^

aahhhh Black Heart :'DDD You can help yourself with some Plugsuit tutorials, they are mosty made for Evangelion cosplay but I'm pretty sure you can find something with that since it's a similar suit. And aahh the wings and everything ;AAA;; THIS GONNA BE GREAT :'D
