Just in time for halloween! I have been making body suit costumes since 2007 and I still really have no idea how to do it. BUT I did document how I threw my latest strapless red bodysuit for my traditional bunny girl costume together. You may have seen me in this at Animethon 2012 or at Anime Revolution 2012. I make All my own patterns so my ideas are kinda non-conventional and ways of doing things don't really follow logic, HOWEVER I have promised to a few girls that I would put up how I made this costume.
