Description
Decided to cosplay thig character on a total whime. I've always wanted to do a TWEWY cosplay (I played my friends game of this and loved it) and I'm going to get it myself now. My friend XMoonLilyX did a journal of cosplays she's doing in the future and she wants to be Neku, she persaded me that I should be Rhyme. She's also putting a group together so go see her if you want to be part of it! She's totally cute and it's a easy costume to make, plus I love the design on her jumper :D

Worn at:
-Kitacon 2009
-Ayacon 2009
-Fuyucon 2009

Information:

Wig: Bought from eBay. I just searched for "Short blonde wig" and checked the seller was good enough.

Hat: Bought from eBay. Simply searched for a "black hat" and bought it.

Skull: I made out of Fimo (check the journal for reference). I moulded the Fimo using a few random tools I had for clay. I then threaded through a curved needle through the back of the skull. I then slowly cooked it in the oven for a short amount of time until it was hard. Then I painted the skull using acrylic white and black paint (using a black sharpie to clean up the black areas). Finally, once dried, I sewed the skull onto the hat using the holes I'd made at the back.

Bell: Again I made thing out of Fimo. Once it was all cooked I began to paint it. Part of the areas broke so I had to hot glue them. I then painted it with a gold colour. I had a little bell part from a toy bell and glued it onto the bottom so the bell rang. Finally I used a small, black elastic to use as the necklace part for the bell.

Jumper: I bought a plain (and very large) orange jumper from eBay. Once it'd arrived I created a stencil for it using A3 paper card. I did this by drawing out the pattern of the jumper onto it and cutting it out with scissors. I then used a lot of Dylon black fabric paint and painted it on. A good tip is to place something in-between the jumper so it doesn't leak through and give you an even surface. I placed some cardboard in-between. Once dry I ironed it.

Dungarees: I bought a pair of white ones from eBay, I think they were painters and decorators ones. I had to alter them a bit so they would fit. I added the grey detail on the front by adding grey felt onto it.

Shoes: These were originally Santa shaped slippers that I had got for christmas. I then cut them and added old duvet parts to create the shape of the shoe. I finally covered the shoes in the material that was needed (check my journal for help and pictures)

Gorgeous Rhyme! Great work on the shoes I'm always so reluctant to get specific shoes or alter them, you did a nice job. Despite what you think you look very cute and this costume looks great on you, the jumper/top-thing is my favorite part.

Process of making the shoes (Posted 3rd September 2009)

Just reference images for people who want to make shoes like this ^_^

I started to make the second Rhyme boot today, it took less time becasue I knew what I was doing. I cut it up and then added the padded bits on. Just need to cover it now along with the other one. I need some sowing glue and thoughs hole thingys you get on your trainers to put the laces through lol. Might get these when I go out with Akuma on the 16th.

15/09/2008 (Posted 15th September 2008)

Well I did quite abit today for this cosplay, since I got bored of uni work. I cut and sowed the rest of the boot together but it doesn't look right, it needs more 'bulkiness' to it. Thankfully we have an old dovey which I can use for the top of the boot and the front thingy. Yes it sounds odd but I use everything I can get my hands on :D So far this cosplay have been free :D Plus I made the skull for my hat. I used some left over fimo and it turned out really good. Just need to cook and bake tomorrow.
