Character: Mari Illustrious Makinami
Series: Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
Worn to: MegaCon 2012, SakuraCon 2012
Hours to Make: 15+ Hours
Notes: Major shirt alterations included making the shirt fitted and making the sleeves look bigger and more dramatic. I used the same green silk fabric to make the tie, bias tape, and embroidered patch. The skirt is a girl’s Limited Too skirt that I bought on eBay and replaced the velcro closings with hooks, eyes, and snaps. Also, I think loafers are generally really ugly and wore ballet flats instead. Most of the construction time was used to hand sculpt and paint the Eva clips which are attached to a plain store-bought headband.
