“Polizei” Cyberpunk police
Series: Dragon’s Heaven
Variation: Ghost in the Shell inspired cyberpunk
Worn at: Fanime 2010
Why I made this: Lionel and I had planned another cyberpunk costume for Fanime 2010 after the success of cybersuit at Fanime 2009. We compiled several ideas which ended up with a cyberpunk, Dragon’s Heaven costume with some Ghost in the Shell influences. Dragon’s Heaven is an old school, kind of obscure anime with gorgeous artwork and a futuristic story, and much of the costume’s looks are Ghost in the Shell inspired.
Construction: Lionel made the bulk of the costume and all the accessories, I provided the wig and shoes. The headpiece, shoulder piece, and gun laser all light up, but I have zero visibility when the visor is on.
Personal thoughts: I enjoyed that this outfit is in the reverse color palette from Fanime 2009′s costume, and has a very different feeling to it. We even shot in the same parking garage! Dressing as a sexy future cop is quite a bit of fun – so many thanks to Lionel for designing it and putting this shoot put together.
