Misato is my most favorite character of Evangelion, and I wanted to cosplay as her since I was a child. So after many years, I finally could do it! and I'm so happy because I also had a wonderful cosplay group, formed by ~Monaluffy
as Shinji, ~Miyuulina
as Asuka, ~Latelierdesreves
as Rei and ~Jujumevi
as Kaworu. We had so much fun doing the photoshoot, and I hope we could do another one soon!
This cosplay is so special for me because It's the first time that I make everything by myself: I sewed both dress and jacket, make the cross necklace and customized the wig. It was quite difficult to sew the costume, because I really don't have much knowledge about sewing and pattern making and I had a lot of problems, but at last I could finish at time and I'm so proud of the result. Besides, I learned a lot doing it!
In this photo, we wanted to recreate this illustration
, where they clearly wanted to show Misato and Shinji as Virgin Mary and Infant Jesus, considering the high bible references that are in the whole Evangelion series.
