She-Hulk Bunny | Cosplay How-To
She-Hulk Bunny – Cosplay WIP
A simple cosplay I was able to do with fabric I had laying around from my previous She-Hulk (revised) cosplay.
I used McCall’s Patterns M7398 by Yaya Han originally for the base. Because I have a longer torso I had to make my own pattern from it from which I have been using for the past year or so.
Note: This costume is not made with boning of any kind.
Like my previous She-Hulk Cosplay I had to layer the fabric. If you would like a more detailed look into this experience please check out my blog post here where I show you how I made my original She-Hulk bodysuit.
I used Yaya’s White Scuba Hexagon 4-way stretch scuba and purple 4-ways stretch spandex.
I enjoy making these costumes and knew I would use simple headbands in future projects so I splurged and bought 10 of them from eBay in November for a whole $2.88.
I did not see them until after the New Year.
I created two ears proportionate to my head out of a cardboard Amazon box and traced their shape onto my purple spandex fabric. I sewed the fabric with a zig-zag stitch and pulled the cover over the ears like a sock. Everything else was a desperate attempt at hot glue… may the odds be ever in your favor.
In my experience making bunny suits and bodysuit and every costume w/o pants, with some materials you can get away with NOT using bias tape (such as PVC fabric). In my opinion spandex (especially 2 layers of spandex in one suit) is not something you can skirt around if you want your costume to look profess-to-death.
If you’re in a pinch or just don’t care then… LMFAO yeet.
I however used bias tape around the leg holes and top of the suit and DAMN BOI IT WAS CUTE AS HEC.
NOT including a collar/bowtie/cufflinks was a creative and practical choice. While in body paint anything that rubs against your skin can and will rub your makeup off.
Creatively I thought the ensemble looked “less busy” and with the gloves, looked more elegant.
