Why I Made This Costume
.I was making my Psyduck costume at the time (2016) and decided I wanted to bring an additional cosplay with me to CCEE. I figured it would be easy to put together using items from my closet. But then I had to go and decide I wanted Vera too...
How I Made This Costume
The shirt was borrowed from my brother, it's not even relevant to Firefly, it just had a color I liked. I tea dyed the shorts for a khaki look. Vera is made from insulation foam, EVA foam, PVC pipe and paper. It took quite the combo of materials to carve down and build up shapes.
Other Thoughts on This Costume
I'm hoping to eventually wear this again. Perhaps with a proper shirt and maybe extra gun holsters. You can never be too extra when it comes to the man they call Jayne. ;)
