pilot princessby ciferacosplay

I made an Asuka plugsuit about six years ago- it was pretty terrible. Ever since then, I've always wanted to amend that horror with a new plugsuit. I never got around to it until I saw the 3.0 designs- I immediately fell in love with the new suits Asuka and Mari were given. The dark leggings and rib armor are brilliant aspects of the design. And the eye patch! How could I resist?

I decided specifically against PVC for this one because I just can't parse it as being all that shiny. I went with wetsuit-like materials for the most part, with PVC for detailing; because the pilots are submerged in the entry plugs, I figure that fabrics meant to be submerged are the way to go.

Constructing this wasn't really difficult- it was just tedious. Most of the time I spent working on this was dedicated to fitting and refitting and fitting and refitting. It felt like there were endless adjustments to make before it started to look the way it should!

Awesome work, just be careful you don't get too hot cause I know neoprene (wetsuit-like material) doesn't breath at all. Once again, awesome job!
