Battle Angel Alita by RuffleButtCosplay Battle Angel Alita by RuffleButtCosplay
Hope you guys aren't tired of Alita pictures yet, haha.

Alita is my all time favorite character ever and this was my dream costume.

The wig is two wigs combined. (Tutorial: rufflebuttcosplay.deviantart.c… ) Alita's hair is rather ridiculous and I wanted mine to be that way. I think it still needs a little more molding though.

All of the armor is craft foam coated with contact cement and covered with spandex. (Tutorials: rufflebuttcosplay.deviantart.c…

I found a few tutorials on craft foam armor and ended up making a hybrid solution that worked for me. I paid a very large attention to detail. At this point, I know her arms like the back of my hands. Both top and bottom pieces attach by snaps. Elbow and knee pieces attach via velcro.

Catsuit is made by me with wet look spandex. Undershirt is made of the same spandex that coats the armor.

Not really sure what else to say. Very VERY labor intense. It pays off if you take the time to do it well though.

There is not nearly enough BAA love in the world. It was one of my first manga loves and this brings back all the nostalgia feels. Your cosplay of her is gorgeous!
