My dear Quon, from my favorite anime, RahXephon. I couldn’t wait to make this cosplay, and had actually began working on it while I was working on Deidara. There was a lot of research involved on this character, I was so dead set on getting all of the details perfect, that I re-watched the show and even learned of an extra episode which I had never seen before! I was so surprised by that. Anyways, this cosplay is certain in my top 5 all time favorites, and I was very proud of the outcome.
Cosplay - The dress was made by Maria, when we were in FoxyCosplay, when I made some slight modifications to the sleeve with some piping and wiring.
"With this cosplay, it was funny, I wanted to BE Quon. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with RP, but I don’t RP. I dress up because I like to dress up, and that’s about it. So the fact that I felt this way, it was sort of out of the ordinary. And I loved it. Still do…"
Wig – I used a 54in Pink curly wig, which I braided and trimmed up the bangs. It was actually a re-used wig from another cosplay that I didn’t feature on this page, since I don’t really have any good pictures of it.
Props – Quon’s vest was made out of Wonderflex – you can see some of the construction details here. One day I might write up the final… Anyways, the main research went into this portion of the cosplay, as I wanted to make sure it looked and felt like Quon’s vest. Arm and wrist bands and Leg strap were made of Sculpey. The umbrella, Beret, and Shoes were purchased.
