Inspiration: My Virtual Girlfriend costume was getting a bit old, but Archer cosplay is still the best, so I looked for something new to wear. My friends actually mentioned wanting to do the blue space jumpsuits, so I decided to do this adventurous Cheryl costume to go along with them. It was so much fun!
Materials/Construction Details: As you can tell, I didn’t use the most conventional materials for this costume. The top is a dryer hose that was cut and sewn together, then covered in blue electrical tape. I used some clear straps and little fashion tape to help keep it in place. I also made some ISA pasties (like Lana wore in the episode) to wear underneath…just in case. The skirt is made out of several layers of bubblewrap cut into a tiered circle skirt. I popped the bubbles towards the top and glued the layers together to make a waistband, which I then wove ribbon through so that I could pull the skirt on and then cinch it into place. The headpiece is made out of a CD, some mylar, and a bit of white netting. That was about it for the whole costume.
Wig: I bought a short base wig and a bun extension in dark auburn. I stuffed the bun with some fleece to make it fuller and then pinned it into the wig and hair sprayed the hair into place.
