Cosplayer firewolf826 > Costume of Nezumi from No. 6
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This is more-or-less a closet cosplay BUT I had to put a lot of work into it. OTL I did a lot of work to the wig (description below), and the biker jacket I ended up buying on Ebay was WAYYYY too big for me. Like 3 sizes too big. I had to completely take it apart and take it in. Besides the fact that I hate altering clothing, it was a bit of a challenge.
I found the yellow shirt in Walmart and the pants on EBay. I had boots that would work, and had to buy fabric for the scarf/cloak.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Basically my friends started watching No. 6 and messaged me saying I'd be a good Nezumi, and then I looked him up and by then it was a done deal that I indeed would cosplay him, hahah. I went on to watch the series in a few days (while screaming "IT'S SO HOMO" to myself. -- This was like a month before the convention, welp.)
I thought the series was very intriguing, even if I didn't understand what the hell was going half the time.
- Styling Notes
- The wig wasn't quite the right color, so I tinted it a bit more dark blue. Before it was too light and lavendar-ish. Then I straightened it with hot water to get rid of the loose waviness. Since I had to take it out of the ponytail to dye, I had to pull it back into a ponytail. Then I cut and styled the bangs and cut a bit off the ponytail as well. The side bangs needed additional straigtening because they were laying kind of funny.
- Wig Review
- The wig is WAYYY too big for my head. It did note on the website that this wig doesn't work well for those with smaller head, but... I wasn't expecting the side pieces to cover my ears, but there's not much I could do about that.
