For the hoodie I bought a giant men's hoodie and chopped it and reassembled it to fit me and also added the pink lining to the hood. To make the design, I sketched out the pattern and traced it onto contact paper. I then gave it a layer of white paint to help the colours appear brighter, and then added the pink and blue. I have some in progress shots on my phone that I'll upload later that show some of how I made it.
The wig is just a plain black wig that I added coloured extensions to. The ponytail was really difficult to create with a wig, I discovered, but I used a LEGO rubberband to keep it together because oops, who needs to own real hair bands? It will need a bit of work for future use, especially given that these photos are after I was wearing it for several hours, so it just all went *poof* and became a hot mess.
I am planning to make the pants and shoes at a later date, because oops, didn't have time and we were slightly snowed in. Definitely planning on taking this to some LEGO and comic conventions!

The cosplay is accurate, and the hoodie is amazing. Mind telling us how you made it? Paint?

WOW. I hope to see you at Comic Con, AX, and really...any convention. Amazing job!
Looking for a Bionicle Beanie. Black one with the symbol on it. The one I had since childhood was lost at sea (no joke). Please let me know if you have one. Will purchase/trade.

That's a great cosplay! So inspired! I hope it gets attention at various conventions.

Daaang, that is the best Lego cosplay I've seen in a long time! *applause*

Very nice, those colours are bold and perfect to the minifig. Can't wait for progress shots!

I never expected to see anything like that. That's awesome.

First of all, YES.
Second of all, I've not seen the film yet (comes out in April in NZ ), but from what I've seen (posters, trailers, publicity shots), this is... pretty dead on to Wyldstyle's look.

This is very cool! I can't see how it looks when it is completed if it already looks this great.

I knew it would only be a matter of time before someone made this. :3
It is really awesome, and really accurate to the movie. Great job!

Normally I dislike cosplays for being extremely tacky (Often due to art styles not really translating into real life), but this is pretty awesome.

Why haven't I seen this yet? I'm so glad I found my way here through fb.
It's a really well made cosplay, and you've made an awesome job with the hoodie. It's just fabolous!
And I'm looking forward to your con photos!
Onto the first chapter! And why yes! This is a COMIC! \(°u°)/
