About this Costume
Construction Details:
My cousin Hanamaru and I both love Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean so when she mentioned she was planning to make a Jolyne costume, I wanted to join her as Hermes. :D The manga takes place in Florida, and that's where I live. Fun! My costume's scheme is based off of a color manga cover, where Hermes is in shiny silver and lime green with pink armbands. 70's and futuristic? Hanamaru's colors are more original and we shared fabrics to coordinate. This was the first time I've ever worked with metallic spandex and pvc, so it was a fun learning experience. I recycled my old Itachi wig for Hermes. I added extensions to the top, built a widow's peak hairline, and made my own dreadlocks and gold pieces. I tried to add a lot of details: green pvc stripes, faux pockets, pink pvc armbands/belt, gold lettering, kiss stickers, and I even painted fake green nails with silver glitter and tiny kiss marks. I made the vector art for Jolyne's butterfly and star tattoos and she printed them on tattoo paper. We both had to apply some crazy makeup and lashes too. These costumes are super fun to wear. ♥
