Neku Sakuraba: Twister by Malindachan Neku Sakuraba: Twister by Malindachan
Thank you guys SO much for all the compliments on the last photo submission. I admit I'm a bit late on joining in on the TWEWY scene; I couldn't afford to get the game when it originally came out, but it was always something I wanted to try (I just didn't know if I would like the battle system or not, and I'm pretty darn picky with my RPGS). I ordered a copy of TWEWY around the time they announced the character cameos for the KH3D game. Ended up getting hooked and beat it in about a week. Such an amazing game; I loved everything about it. The music, art style, characters, story, gameplay...everything.

I usually post a big wall of info on how I made the costume, so here goes!

The wig was a Jareth in Pumpkin from I styled the bigger spikes by using forms made out of stiff felt, And I glued hair from the wig over them. For some of the spikes (especially the ones in the back), I had to use hair from extra wefts to fill in gaps and cover each spike completely. I didn't take enough progress photos to show any sort of tutorial, but how I styled this wig is very similar to how I went about styling my Yusei wig: [link]

For the headphones, I found a large headset on clearance at Walmart and built over it with Craft foam. I can hide my ipod in the collar and listen to music! :3 The foam was sealed with mod podge and painted with metallic acrylics.

For the shirt, I started with McCall's pattern 5891 as a base, though i took in the seams a LOT and added in a back seam so it would be as form-fitting as I could possibly make it. I used Black twill, so it doesn't stretch, but it has a hidden zipper down the back so I can still put it on. The collar is literally just a huge tube of fabric. It stays up pretty well just because it's a pretty thick material, though I usually have to adjust it before pictures. The tube is only sewn to the shirt on one small area of the back, just to keep it from falling off or rotating around. The violet panel on the front of the shirt was some white twill that I dyed with blue and purple dyes, since I couldn't find the right color fabric anywhere. I used yellow bias tape for the sides of the panel before top-stitching it to the shirt.

The mp3/tampon/necklace/thing was made with a white trim and Super Sculpey clay. I was super close to just using a tampon, because that's what it looks like.

The wristband is yellow fleece. pretty basic~

The shorts are made out of White Bull Denim. I used McCall's pattern 5391 for the base, and just made the extra pockets to match the design. The purple spots were from the same piece of fabric I dyed, and I used yellow buttons on the front.

For the belt, we happened to have the right kind of buckle on another belt, so we just took it off and made a new base strap out of twill.

The shoes were super rushed because I was trying to beast them out the night before I left for AWA, but they managed to work out ok in the end. :3 I basically made covers for a pair of slippers I had (they were cute puppy ones! :D ). The bottom is made out of vinyl so they won't get torn up as easily. I didn't have enough buttons to match the ones on my shorts (and didn't have time to get more), so I used craft foam for the ones on the shoes.
