Zero Two, or 002, is the mysterious human/klaxosaur hybrid the storyline of Darling in the Franxx follows. Her fondest for the Hiro (the main hero) is only rivaled by her fondness for sweets. I thought her character was so interesting, so I wanted to bring her to life even if I didn’t have time to make a full costume.
The first photoset is based off of the first scene Zero Two is seen in, where she bathes completely nude in a lake. The second is a swimsuit based off the the suit she wears in the anime.
While there isn’t much of a costume to talk about, the horned headband was crafted from scratch by sculpting an original out of clay, molding it, and casting it in resin. I made two different versions, one with solid resin which I painted, and another with translucent horns and LEDS.
