Progress on my Sweet Raiden costume. All that's left is to style the wig, attach the chin to the zentai hood I bought, and figure out the chest plates.
The bodysuit is sewn from a 4-way stretch matte vinyl (bought at spandex house, I believe) using a pattern (standard bodysuit pattern). I altered the pattern to add the special seams (read: cut up the pattern and add seam allowances!). Grommets were added and painted orange. The side pieces were made from craft foam and glued on. The belt and leg holster I bought from an airsoft supply site. The coat was bought from ebay. I made the sword (haphazardly) from scrap wood from my dad's workshop.
