When she was only 4-years-old, Asuka participated in a contact experiment with Unit 02. Although she physically survives the test, Asuka’s mother, Soryu Kyoko Zeppelin became mentally unstable. She believed that a doll was the real Asuka and referred to her daughter as “that girl over there”. As a scientist of Gehirn's German Branch of the Evangelion Project, she was institutionalized, but she eventually committed suicide by hanging herself. Asuka was the one who found her body when she was going to tell her mother that she has been selected to become an Eva Pilot.
A rather sad childhood for Asuka… Cute cosplay anyway! I love her A10 nerve clips and the color of her hair. Thanks to Mina for sending this in!
