SonSon Cosplay by HezaChan SonSon Cosplay by HezaChan
Photos taken by Claire Iverson-Burt

I've been wanting to make this costume for a very long time, and after the 2010 holiday season, I managed to get my hands on some gift cards that helped fund this costume. SonSon is an awesome character that doesn't get much love. She is a character in the Marvel vs Capcom 2 video game, and she's based off of an old Capcom gamed named "SonSon". She's the main character's granddaughter.

The jacket is made from a bottom-weight cotton/poly blend. It's so stiff, that I didn't need to add interfacing to keep the collar standing! The collar was a bit difficult to sew, so I ended up hand stitching a lot of it so it would lay and look right.The obi is made from brown pleather and faux sheep wool/fur, and it attaches around my waist with hooks and eyes. I used a nice curtain cording to use as the tie.

The tail is made from faux fur. It's attached to an elastic band that goes around my waist underneath the jacket and obi. It is stuffed with polyfil, and I added wire to it to retain its shape.

I enjoyed working with bias tape properly for the first time ever. Although, I did take a shortcut with some inverted corners. In the reference image I have she has a a white border along the bottom and split as well, but the actual video game spirtes, she doesn't have a split, nor a white trim. I just mixed the two together and decided not to do the split, but added the white trim. Yes, I'm lazy ;P


The wig isn't as accurate as I'd like, because I'd like to add the nice widow's peak hairline, but I didn't have any matching extensions. I did manage though to take off a small weft from the back of the wig near the nape of the neck and attach it to the underside of the front hairline of the wig; that way, when I combed back the hair, the netting and wefting wouldn't show.

The way you're dressed up as Sonson looks very nice and cute! I really love the outfit you're wearing as this character! Needless to say, I've actually realized that you're wearing long white socks with the outfit, and I actually adore cute gals that wear those kind of socks as well! :D

I really have a soft spot for underrated charcters and it's really nice to have some unusual attempts after trying characters loved mainstream. Saying that you look cute (in tme most adorable way) isn't enough but i'm at loss of words :) . You really nailed this one! i love your other costumes but this really seems special! LOVELY!

I could be wrong (if so forgive me), I believe I read somewhere that SonSon (in Marvel vs. Capcom 2) is the granddaughter of the original SonSon from the NES game of the same name.

I also raged when I saw Captain Commando and Jin as slain. Why is Megaman still alive if he's the weakest of all them?

SONSON~♥
I absolutely adore this character and this cosplay. ♥ This looks amazing! I love the accuracy you were able to portray in SonSon, and the snowy setting couldn't be any more gorgeous than it already is. For not seeing this cosplay around a lot, I think I can say you did a beautiful job on this! Truly amazing. ♥

How much does a costume like this typically cost you to make?
Reply
:iconhezachan:
HezaChan Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
This one ended up being more expensive than I thought, and I used $120 worh of gift cards to purchase materials.

So with the $120 in gift cards, and about $60 in other materials, total was up to $180. (Shoes and the wig can get expensive), although technically I only paid $60 out of pocket.

If you had a pool to donate towards your next costume I'd contribute. You make this an art and I'd love to help support you in that.

I used to have a paypal donation button on my site, but I took it down. People in the cosplay community kinda look down on that, and think it's begging. Thank you though :)
