Cosplayer Nashida > Costume of N from Pokemon
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I owned the turtlenecks, but I had to buy another dress shirt and pair of khakis. That was $10 apiece.
I nabbed the studded bracelet from my brother. He doesn't miss it. The gold square bracelets are bangles I bought from Fashion Jewelry LA.
I made the necklace completely out of Sculpey. It lasted the whole weekend until it randomly broke on Sunday.
The Void Cube I made from a Rubik's Cube with all the color chips removed. I then stuck gold stick foam all over except for the middle squares. Took a screw eye and drilled it into one of the side, strung some brass bead chain into it, and voila.
Hat was a $3 black Wal-Mart cap I painted with (of all things) Behr interior paint.
Total cost was $50 and it took 20-40 hours to finish.
- Personal Thoughts:
- The MOST fun I've had in a cosplay, ever.
I loved adopting this character the whole weekend, encouraging people to free their Pokemon (and getting sad when they didn't). This was also the most detail I've ever put into a costume.
Liberate the Pokemon!
- Styling Notes
- Used my old favorites, Got2B Glued styling glue and Rave hairspray. Tied back the bulk of it with a hair tie. For the "sideburns" I used small clear elastics tied high up enough they could hide under the hat.
