Silk is ready to swing in!
You guys know that I really enjoy making cosplays, and always try to make my own costumes where I can. However, I have recently discovered a few digital artists who design suit patterns, which can then be sent to companies to print and sew into suits.
One of my favourite digital artists is Brandon Gilbert, A.K.A. ArachanidStudios. I have been following his Instagram for ages now as I absolutely adore all of his designs, and I knew I had to get my hands on a few of them. The first one I bought was his Silk (Cindy Moon) suit pattern, as I loved that unlike other patterns around, he keeps the chest area a light-medium grey colour, not a bright white which most suits are. Plus, his suits colouring is perfect to the cover art of Silk vol.0, 'The Life and Times of Cindy Moon'.
I bought the pattern from his Sellfy store, and sent the file, along with my measurements to ZentaiZone. I decided to add a few extras to the suit order, by asking for the mask to be removable, and for them to attach some soles to the bottom of the feet. It took about 15 days for my suit to be printed, stitched and shipped out to me, and about 5 days for the suit to be delivered to me.
In the meantime of waiting for the suit to arrive, I ordered myself a straight black lace front wig from my usual wig supplier; Wig Is Fashion. Once this arrived, I did a quick makeup test for Silk, with neutral eyes and some wispy lashes. I realised after looking at the pictures, that I need to make the eyes more dramatic next time, as it didn't show up as well on camera as it did in person.
A full list of the products I used for this is in the description box under the image on my Instagram.
When the suit arrived, I was thrilled! The colours are perfect, really vivid, and the suit is exceptionally comfortable! It was a bit big on my ankles, legs and wrists, but this was easily fixed by taking it in on my sewing machine. I took a quick picture of it on my phone before any alterations, and am now waiting for the weekend, when I can get some professional shots of the whole costume during my photoshoot (more info on that coming soon!)
