About this costume

Selection Process: I'm not sure why I chose to do this costume before the classic outfit. I think it was because I thought it would be more modest than the original tiger striped bikini, but these days I'm not so sure! I made this based off of official art; it's not actually canon. I almost didn't make it to Phoenix Cactus Comicon (now known as Phoenix Fan Fusion) because I wasn't brave enough but my mom encouraged me to go and even came with me!

Construction: I covered an old bra with tiger striped fabric. I pretty much drafted  everything myself. This was, I think, my second or third cosplay so I wasn't into wearing wigs yet.

Final Thoughts: I think this costume would have been a lot better with a wig - although some people still did recognize me.
