TWEWY: Open Up Your Senses by Malindachan TWEWY: Open Up Your Senses by Malindachan
So happy to get a photo like this. I didn't think I'd ever find a cool Graffiti spot in the area of Chicago that I live in. It's actually illegal to buy/sell spray paint in the city, so that's why Graffiti is more rare here than I thought it was.

I'll go into details on how I made the entire costume in the next photo I upload (which will show more of the outfit).

Edit: for full costume construction, read here!

For the wig, I used a Pumpkin Jareth from Arda-wigs.com, styled with stiff felt, fabric glue, Got2be hairspray, and extra short wefts.

The headphones are tons of fun because they still function like normal headphones. I found a large headset on clearance at Walmart and just built over them in craft foam (finished with Mod Podge and acrylic paints). I have an ipod shuffle hiding in my collar so I can blare the game's soundtrack and confuse people on awkwardly silent elevators.

Best I've ever seen in my life. Specifically the hair. Most peoples cosplay's have good costumes but not the best wigs. This wig is the best. Glad to see I'm not the only TWEWY fan out there.

what a coincidense look at my profile pic, it's Joshua. tought my cosplay ain't half as epic as yours. I wished i could be as amazing a cosplayer as you. Anyways i love to see you of all people cosplay a Neku. I loved all of your yugioh cosplays, tough I haven't commented on any of your picture before this one... or have i? don't remember. The pose your doing is also totally Neku. OMG there is nothing like Twewy out there. the only thing that can compare with that awesome game is childrens trading card games

Wow MalindaChan your cosplay of Neku looks spectacular!! I am really amazed with how awesome you look as Neku (not that any of your cosplays arent awesome anyway xD) but I mean, this looks like it could be on a poster for a live action movie or something! Excellent job :D
