Subarashiki Kono Sekai (The World Ends With You), Sakuraba Neku cosplay~

Finally I have my hands on Neku photos after 8 months!!!! XD Thank you Dan! These turned out so awesomely!

Neku, costume and post processing ~ :iconamenokitarou:
Photo taken by :iconpryde4114:


The shot: was taken in Melbourne at the venue of Mini Animania. The entrance of the hotel had a very pretty spinny entrance thing so we abused its shininess and reflections. If you look at the background closely you'll see quite a few nifty reflections in all different angles.
The colours turned out so nicely!Nearly no processing was doen for this because the colours just turned out so spot on....*_*


Costume: basic materials, made last year in 2 hours one sitting (lol i am very into one sitting cosplays)

Wig and Headphones: made this year, Headphones were made with spare foam huhuhu! and wig was cut and styled by me from a really nice LONnGGGGG orange chick wig hahaha! the transformation was quite hilarious xD

I flew to melbourne in this costume. It was so much fun. I got recognised by asian kids at the airport, on the plane, as well as in Melbourne Chinatown....

I wore this to Melbourne Mini Animania 09, it was unexpectedly popular. like WHOA.....I even got a bunch of stalkers who trailed me everywhere during the con... :lol:

I'd like to know what stuff do you use to make you hair/wig so spiked? Because the one I use to buy is now discontinued... (Joyco ice spray) :( So I'm on a quest for a new stuff to fix my hair spiky. :aww:

I just use hair spray and a hair dryer.
To make the spikes a little stronger you can use fabric glue to seal the tips.

You need to build up on muscles mate. Muscles are win!

dude.....Neku has no muscles.
I did my hardest to actually pose without any signs of tones showing.

Don't comment if you don't know what you're talking about.
