Cosplayer Mai Chan > Costume of Leon Kuwata from Dangan Ronpa
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The shirt I got at Walmart and I made a circle stencil out of construction paper to outline the circle for the logo on the shirt and I just sketched out the skull within the circle the skull. After outlining the logo, I painted it with fabric paint.
As for the safety pin rose, the safety pin portion of the prop is made out of a thick wire hanger in which I had to scrap off the paint that was already on it and then after I re-shaped it to look like part of the safety pin. The rose and leafe are both made out of tin foil. I used the paper mache method of making roses to make mine. The leafe and rose are hot glued to the safety pin portion of the prop.
The bat is actually a plastic bat from the dollar store and has been painted on with silver metallic paint using a "smearing" kind of method of painting it to give that impression it's actually a metal bat.
The one other thing I constructed here is the antenna and USB Port for my friend's Fairy Chihiro cosplay. The antenna is made out of jewelry wire in which I straightened out, painted with black fabric paint to give an almost wire-y feeling, and a small, golden styrofoam ball that was part of a christmas ornament. The antenna itself has been attached on the wig itself through the weffs.
The USB port is made out of these styrofoam poster boards I bought at Walmart, cut out the individual pieces I traced on said poster boards, and hot glue the pieces together. It was then painted with silver metallic acrylic paint and black fabric paint. The cable portion of the USB port is made out of a thick, steel wire that is then surrounded by regular notebook paper to add to the thickness and then cable wire was tapped around it to give it that cable-y look and feel.
The wig was commissioned and is styled by Destiny Stylin's Wig Commissions.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This is by far my most favorite cosplay since tumblr user crocus29 combines two of my favorite things in this AU: faeries and Dangan Ronpa. It's a nice little light hearted AU that would cheer anyone up and that's what I hope to achieve when cosplaying from said AU.
