Major Motoko Kusanagi
Series: Ghost in the Shell
Variation: manga cover inspired
Worn at: Fanime 2009, Nan Desu Kan 2009
Why I made this: I’ve wanted to make Motoko for years since my mother and I love , but never got the excuse to until I purchased AmazonMandy’s old wig, and Lionel made plans to make a Tachikoma at Fanime 2009. That fell through, so instead he offered to make me a manga-inspired cybersuit, which I happily agreed to. The idea behind this outfit was a cyber-diver, complete with nifty high tech accessories and wires running everywhere, very cyberpunk!
Construction: We commissioned the white PVC suit from Chinese slave labor, lol, and although all my measurements were given, it was still a little loose around thighs and back. Lionel made all the modifications to it, including LED lights, wires, headpiece, and accessories. I only provided the wig, shoes, contacts, and little Tachikoma in place of a big one, lol!
Personal thoughts: I absolutely love wearing this, and although it gets very hot and uncomfortable quickly, she’s a sexy character with an attitude I can fall into so easily. Thank you Lionel, wearing this was a dream come true!
