Halloween Rei Ayanami by straywind Halloween Rei Ayanami by straywind
Stillvisions posted his lovely photos from the shoots that I did with him of my Rei costume on Halloween (in 2012) and just after Youmacon in early November. Here is a shot from the November shoot. We were able to get a few photos outside before winter set in.

I'm really proud of how this costume turned out. It was my big costume project of 2012. I think the hat still needs a bit of work, but I'll try to improve the shape a bit before I wear this again next fall.

This is so cute! You make a fantastic Rei, and I think the setting fits the costume theme so well. When you mentioned this version of Rei in a previous picture (maybe it was a journal entry?) I googled it and couldn't find the design anywhere. I really love it, you did a wonderful job.

I appreciate your comment. The design is pretty obscure. It was from a prize figure (one of dozens of Rei figures that get released every year) so it's not very well known. You can view the figure here: [link]. I really love a lot of the figure designs for the Eva girls. There are so many versions of Asuka and Rei that I would like to Cosplay. I'm really glad there are some Halloween designs for the girls. (^_^) This particular outfit transferred really well into a costume.

NP :D Thanks for the link! You did a lovely job bringing it to life, I agree it translated really well into cosplay. I too love this cute little costumes they design for these figures. If I had money to burn I'd have a massssive eva figure collection because they are fun to collect and don't take up much space. I like the versions like this one, the tiny short adorable ones. A lot of the larger ones seem to be overly sexualized, which drives me nuts ._. they're 14 ffs...

Thank you so much! I was really bummed that I couldn't do a shoot of this costume right before Halloween during the day and Youmacon is a pretty lousy location for any sort of nature shots. I was really thrilled to be able to go out a week after Halloween for a fall shoot. It was right in the nick of time because it became quite cold after that weekend. Too bad the leaves were pretty much off of all of the trees. I'll try again this fall for more outdoor shots. (^^) I can't get enough of Halloween shoots. (^_^)

NP! I'm glad you were able to go out then before the cold rolled in! Haha yep Youmacon definitely isn't that great for those type of shots.

It still is an amazing pictures even if the leaves were falling off! Hope you can for sure get more this fall. :D
