The scooter is a 1965 Vespa Super Sport 180 that I bought as an anniversary gift for my wife in 2012. We restored the scoot together are she remade her costume a while later, but we've only just now gotten them together for a photoshoot.
The license plate is such a small detail that no one really notices it, but I carefully researched all of the scooter registration markings and r/Japan helped me get the kanji on the insurance tag juuuuust right. It's probably the detail I'm most proud of, but people just assume it's real so they rarely ever comment.
Yes, the guitar is on our to-do list. I'm about a month away from having it done. My wife made this costume from scratch, including the gloves. I think the only pieces that are in their original state are the pants and the undershirt. Her cuff is made of foam, but since we're doing the actual scooter, the actual guitar, the actual everything, I'm looking into having one milled out of aluminum. Mostly I just want to *hear* that "clink" as she moves her wrist, ha!
These photos were taken out near Denver International Airport, where blooming sunflower fields stretch for miles every August, and late afternoon thunderstorms make for unbelievable sunsets.
