Stocking Anarchy

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
Why Stocking?

Somewhat of an impulse project, since I had all the materials to do this outfit, I opted to make Stocking's volleyball outfit from the same beach episode as the beach bikini, which I had done previously. I would love to do Panty's at some point, but since her hair is in a ponytail in that look, I'd need another base wig, at least, and didn't have that color pink on hand, hence why I picked Stocking. Yes, even though pink is my FAVORITE color. ;P

About This Costume

Unlike my other cosplays thus far for Panty and Stocking, I actually made a vast majority of this! The top and bottoms were all drafted and sewn by me. Instead of painting on wings or doing an appliqué, I opted to be extra and do rhinestone wings, because that sounds SO like them, haha! They appear on the visor, top, and back of the bottoms. 

The visor was bought, but heavily modified. The white headband was cut off completely, and the size of the visor was cut down. I covered the top white part of the visor in matching blue fabric, and added straps with a hook in the back, so it can go through the wig and appears to "float" on the head, like in the show.

Why Stocking?

This was a very simple to assemble outfit since it was mostly all found item! I didn't know much about sewing at the time so it was nice to be able to just search online and assemble a cosplay from various parts and accessories. I actually loved this look on me a lot more than I thought I would, so I would love to revisit it some day and make my dress this time around!

About This Costume

Once again, another mostly found-item cosplay from Panty and Stocking! I bought the bikini on ASOS for something like $13, which was a steal! Got the accessories from various online shops, and bought two leis from Party City and took them apart and rethreaded them to appear extra full and fluffy.

 

The wig is much shorter than I originally had it. Even though it was more "accurate", with hair all the way down to my shins, I knew it would be a pain in the butt to take care of something so long, especially if I was going to be around water and sand. So whatevs, decided to cut it to a much more manageable length! I really don't like when wigs are so long that I have to hold them before I sit down. Unless there's a specific reason it needs to be so long, I often just cut it to my lower back, and it gets the job done!
