OMG, I'm so happy that I did it, and that it worked out so well.
This is my new Rei Ayanami Cosplay. It's the Test Plugsuit that normaly is worn by Asuka. I chanced the colores and made my own Rei Version.

I hope you like it as much as I do!

In this picture, I can see alot of emotion. You really do look like you're tired from piloting a huge Bio-Mecha!!!! Your posture is very nice!! The background looks great!! Your expression is lovely!!;) And the costume is VERY well made! The the suit, hair clips, your eyes, everything!! I especially love how you did with the small details of the suit!! The collar looks accurate, the the bracelets are very well shaped, The 'screw-circles' look just like they're in all the right places, The lines look great, And I saw in the other picture that you titled "Spiegelbild", the part on the back looks nice, too. That's a nice touch. And the see-through material you used makes it look very sexy!! I hope you continue to do more Rei pictures in the future. Best of luck to you!! Your good friend, Kaizer617.:hug:

I find that the Rei Ayanami presented in this picture is very very well done . On many levels like ; your posture , it gives off that feeling of tiredness , lathergic and shows half of her personality-her as the silent , yet very obediant attitude towards her piloting EVA-00 . The way how your eyes are set to the camera -Very beautiful , and they show emotion . but I think that they were a tad excessive red , a little duller tone of red would have made it feel more 'realistic' as a cosplay but other than that ~ :) well done !
On the other hand, the costume itself is Very well done . I was massively impressed on how you constructed it -the clear plastic was awesome-ly done , hairpins were nice ,the 'TEST' , The wig + the white bold coloured plugsuit was a nice touch too. The plugsuit was 'cleanly made' -like it wasn't showing any frills or material that were 'out-of-place'

:) TEN thumbs up !! you should feel proudfor what you have done !! :) Love to see more in the future !! :)

This is one of the best cosplay I ever seen, I appreciate your effort and courage to cosplay in this lovely suit, you looks great this way. I have a fetish for this style of dressing in anime, combine with your effort, this is just irresistible. maybe I will draw her in your pose, I hope you allow me to use your photo as reference.

Thank you so very much! ^.^
It would be a honor for me if you will draw me. But please give me the credits as the model/inspiration. And I would love if you will send me the link, so I can see the picture! <3

Btw, I like you time machine designs a lot!

Of curse I will credit you, that is without question, and how can I not let you see the worked that you inspired? Just to warn you that it may not get done anytime soon, I will try my best to make it happen but my times are limited.

Im glad that you likes one of my work, I was trying to learn anime styled sci-fi and still learning. Thank you for dig that far. I know my human drawing still need some improvement.

And I know what you mean about the limited time. I have so many Ideas for new cosplays but I have so less time to do them u_u

Yes, it's realy great!
