Jenni (Mostflogged) asked me to be the stocking to her Panty for PAX East/Anime Boston 2012. In 2014 I wanted to bring an extra costume along to Fanime with me and decided to wear my old Stewardess Stocking with a new Panty wig!
Jenni bought the fabric and shipped it to me along with a pattern for the jacket. We both made our own jackets and skirts, while I made our hats and wing pins/patches, and Jenni painted our shoes along with making our scarves. This costume is really comfortable except the heels! I'm such a klutz in any type of shoe with a tall, skinny heel!
I accidently made the slit on my skirt on the wrong side -- that's what I get for working on it at 3am in the morning!
I wanted to wear something "new" to Fanime so I just wore the stewardess outfit I made for PAX with Jenni and wore my Panty wig with it! It was fun cosplaying Panty although personality wise, I am much more like Stocking. I hope to make Panty's default red dress in the future!

This was a quick cosplay that I made specifically for this shoot! I made it out of left over fabrics I had from when I cosplayed Q-bee. I just simply used the opposite side of the shiny fabric. The bat pattern on the bikini were all individually cut out from a thin lycra that I had and heat n bonded to the fabric. The necklace pendant I sculpted out of super sculpey and cast in resin. The bat on my leg was drawn on using a body art marker.
She doesn't wear wings at all in this version of her, but I like how the head wings looked -- makes the costume more identifiable. I also didn't want to potentially ruin or damage my wings by removing them.
I've been wanting to make a Q-bee costume for the longest time. However, when I first thought about making it (2003-2004) I didn't feel as if I could do it justice. Now 10 years later I felt I was up for the challenge. I always wanted to have the black eyes like her, so I sucked it up and bought sclera lenses. Totally worth it. (Yes! Those are contacts, they are not photoshopped in!) She is one of my absolute favorite characters, and I feel like she doesn't get enough love.
The wings are made from wire and pantyhose with acrylic paint for the veins. I think these could have been done better, I made them 3 days before the con.
Everything was pretty much made with a 4 way stretch foil dot spandex. The yellow details are made with stretch velvet. I really wanted to go with a shiny fabric because insect's exoskeletons have a sheen to them. I'm happy with the contrast between the 2 fabrics. The antenna on the wig are made with crayola model magic and wire. The eyes are just foamies covered in fabric. The bee-butt is made from the spandex and stuffed with newspaper and polyfil.
