Shiny Kaylee Cosplay

While not a product of CGS Unit, I wanted to share another “crafty” project. For this year’s Halloween costume (and for cosplay at every convention I ever attend in the future haha), I decided it was finally time to make Kaylee’s jumpsuit.

There are plenty of blog posts across the net with helpful step of the process, but I found that many were outdated and linked to dozens of products/websites/etc. that no longer exist. I found Maggie’s Costume Site most helpful, since it collects tons of great reference photos. I won’t reproduce that content here.

Instead, I’ll list all the places I bought parts from, which I’ll hopefully try to keep track of broken links as time passes.


The top of the jumpsuit, showing also the shirt I picked and the heart patch (probably too close to center). This is before getting the flower patch on.



Below the bear patch on Kaylee’s left knee, there’s the Chinese character for “love.”


On the left hand pocket, there is a set of characters, meaning something along the lines of “travel safe.”


On the right knee, opposite the bear patch, is the Chinese character for “lucky.”
