Yamato/Matt Ishida: Rockin that Harmonica by Malindachan Yamato/Matt Ishida: Rockin that Harmonica by Malindachan
Ok, not really. I can sometimes play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but that's about it it. XD

Haven't worn this costume in 4 years! Styled a new wig recently, so I brought it to Colossalcon. :)

Not sure if I ever really posted construction notes back when I first uploaded it, so here you go again!

Tank top is made out of a green bottom-weight fabric with just a long rectangle sewn around the collar. I think it was poplin? It has a little stretch to it. I honestly couldn't tell ya which pattern I used; it's been so long. But you can make something just like it from almost any basic shirt pattern (as long as it's got normal sleeve holes rather than being something like a baseball tee).

Just used a pair of jeans from my closet, and the cuffs around the bottom are made out of broadcloth with quilt batting on the inside.

Tsunomon plush was made by me! :) I used fleece for the body and vinyl for the horn. The main body's segments were shaped like teardrops before they were sewn together, and I hand-stitched the edges of the face piece down with an invisible stitch. There's just a light amount of stuffing under the face to add dimension. The eyes and mouth were just painted on with fabric paint.

I've had the Digivice accessory since I was a kid! They were like giga pets, but with Digimon. :3

I actually ditched my old Matt gloves for the ones I made for Cloud since they're a similar style, but the craftsmanship on my Cloud ones look much better XD. I'm not wearing them in the photo because Matt doesn't wear his gloves when he plays his harmonica, but you can see them on the table. :) The glove pattern I used was Butterick 5370 (just modified a bit to have a cuff), and I used a brown vinyl that was on clearance.

My crest necklace was made out of super sculpey and painted.

Wig was a Jaguar in Ginger Blonde from Arda Wigs! I styled this wig very similarly to my old one, though now it's the right color and overall a better shape.
