This week I have a huge crush on this cosplay of the Diva Plavalaguna from Sci-Fi movie Fifth Element. It was created by make-up artist Sev Gedra, who made the costume for her friend Vanessa to wear at the 2015 Katsucon.
I’m in absolute awe at how accurate this costume is; not just the head and tentacles, but that necklace and spine is close to being an exact replica of the original. In fact the only thing that looks remotely different is the slightly baggier blue dress and the softer facial expressions.
I have never seen anyone attempt a Diva cosplay before, and now I am not surprised, because the amount of work that appears to have gone into this costume is insane. Check out Gedra’s facebook page here for some photos of the costumes creational progress. I certainly didn’t realise how much went into making an outfit like this.
