K/DA AHRI COSPLAY BODYSUIT TUTORIAL
In this cosplay tutorial we will take you through the steps of making a black bodysuit for your K/DA Ahri cosplay. It will serve as the base, before making the tail, accessories and all the other pieces that make up one of the coolest Ahri cosplay skins.

Step 1: Pattern
There are plenty of ways to make a cosplay bodysuit that fits you perfectly. In this tutorial I’ll explain what we believe to be the easiest and cheapest method. To make the template you just need plastic wrap, a marker and scissors. If you want to make a more sturdy template, you could use masking tape or some other kind of material to give it a more solid texture.
Start by covering your body with plastic wrap. While you are wearing it, use your marker to draw where the “pants” should go, and where the edges and seams should be. Afterwards you use your scissors to cut the sides, and alongside where you marked the edges of the K/DA Ahri bodysuit should be.
The image on the right shows patterning the white top, which uses the same process. We'll be using the same plastic wrap concept when making the white top in the next tutorial.
Step 2: Cut worbla and Fur
Get your fabric, and cut all the pieces based on the template you just created. Remember to leave room for the seams, and to mirror the pattern so that you don’t end up with two left legs. Sew all the parts together and attach a zipper in the back. I highly recommend using an invisible zipper to give a more polished look.

Step 3: See-through fabric
For the see-through part over the cleavage in the costume, you should use clear black fabric. Cut a shape that’s big enough to fit beneath the bodysuit and cover the cleavage. Sew a black band of the same fabric from the bodysuit at the top of the see-through fabric. Put on the bodysuit. The see-through fabric most likely isn’t stretchy, so this is the best way to make sure the new piece will create enough room to move and that it will look nice. Fasten your new piece to the bodysuit with needles. Then take the bodysuit off, and sew it on.
Step 4: Fasten the suit
To make sure that the bodysuit is tight and won’t fall off, you should make a way to fasten it around your neck for security. Sew a strip in the same fabric as the bodysuit, with 2-3 cm (app. 1") in width.
When you are wearing the bodysuit, fasten the strip on one side of the top of the suit and pull it around your neck. Fasten it on the other side. Alternatively you can add a buckle or some other fastening mechanism to the back of your neck, but we won’t be covering that in this tutorial.
Step 5: Golden belt hoops
Make two golden bands about 1-1,5 cm wide (0.4-0.6"), and fasten them to the front of the bodysuit with pins. Take the bodysuit off, and sew the bands on. And there you have it!
