I am quite incapable of hosting parties that don’t have a theme. Without a theme, how can I dress up? Most recently, I hosted a sport-themed house-warming party dressed as Pink Gold Peach from Mario Kart 8! Racing games count as sports, right? So far, Mario Kart 8 is the only game for the WiiU I own, and the only console game I’m relatively good at. I’ve wanted to cosplay my main, Pink Gold Peach, for a long time.
Then entire outfit is made with gold spandex. I drafted the pattern based on my gym tights and a t-shirt. The gloves are based on a pattern I found on the internet which I altered to make the gloves long. For the thigh high boots, I used a pair of ankle boots I already had and made long shoe covers, guided by internet tutorials. So, how do I get in and out of this outfit? Can you guess where the zipper is? It put it in a rather unorthodox place: namely around the hips! Ten points if you got it right! The other alternative was to put it at the centre back, but that would be very visible and require an extra seam (the fewer seams the better if the character you’re cosplaying doesn’t really look like they’re wearing clothes). Placed around the hips, the zipper is hidden under the belt.
Yup, I made a gold spandex body suit from scratch. For a theme party. But who knows, maybe I’ll get the chance to use the outfit again at a convention or something like that? In that case, I will probably make some kind of mask and crown, or a complete head piece, to truly become Pink Gold Peach from top to toe!
