Costume Information

General
Time Taken : A few hours

Description
I THOUGHT I JUST MADE SOME COFFEE FOR ME

My sister and I are huge fans of Parappa the Rapper/Um Jammer Lammy (my UJL disc refuses to work on certain stages because we've played it that much), and we love playing the 2-Player modes together. As she always chooses Rammy and I have Lammy, we decided a loooong time ago to cosplay them together!

The whole costume is quite a simple one, to be honest, and was pulled together from a lot of bits and pieces we already had lying around. The watch was the first item I made - I took apart an old bag for its green fabric, and together with a piece of yellow craft foam I handsewed it. It closes around my wrist with a snap button.

The shoes were a pair of blue shoes that my sister had bought for one of her own cosplays, but had never got round to painting the soles. As they were the right shape for Lammy, I offered to do it in return for borrowing them.

The pants were a pair of jeans that I had and I hand-sewed the coloured pocket covers onto them using fabric that I had left over from past sewing projects. Simple job! I already had the white belt in my possession, which was handy, and my sister had an old red shirt that she gave to me to use for Lammy. I painted the splat design on the front using a stencil I made myself and some fabric paint - the fabric paint was the only thing I bought for this entire cosplay, possibly making this my cheapest cosplay ever!

The wig was an old wig of my sister's, back from when she cosplayed Kairi. After she said I could have it (as she was never planning to wear it again), I gave it some TLC - I brushed it out, then cut and styled it until I had it the way I wanted it. It's not perfect, but I'm happy enough with it to wear it. The horns and ears are pieces of felt sewn on.

I'll be wearing this to Kitacon IV with NakedSalad as Parappa and Bryoz as Chop Chop Master Onion :D

Tamed! (Posted 23rd February 2012)

Considering I don't very often cut/style wigs, I'm quite happy with the way this has turned out! :) I don't think it's quite 100% there yet (the cut could do with being made a bit more natural-looking) but it's good enough for me right now, and I can always come back to it later.

My sister thinks I look like Leeloo from The Fifth Element when I wear it. I would like to make it curl under a bit more, but I'll see if I can do that later.

Only the horns and ears to go now!

THE BEAST. (Posted 23rd February 2012)

My sister cosplayed Kairi from Kingdom Hearts II years ago, and ever since then her red wig has been sat in my bedroom, unloved. It loves to shed (great...) but I am determined to give it a go styling it for Lammy, as she has said I could have it. So, here we go! Let's see what I can do.

20/11/2008 - Yay! (Posted 20th November 2008)

Taken a picture of me wearing the shirt, and I've found my white belt that I used to wear too! So that's the whole outfit complete now; all I have to do now is buy a wig, make ears and horns, and everything will be finished! :)

18/11/2008 - More Progress (Posted 18th November 2008)

I just came back from going out to buy some black fabric paint. :D Now to finish off the shirt!

___________________

3:30PM
First coat of black paint has been done. :D I don't know whether I'll put a second coat of paint on it, though - I'll have to wait until this one dries and then see what it looks like, and go from there!

___________________

Decided to do a second coat of black paint after all. :) After that's dried, the shirt will be complete! Hooray! That means I only have to buy a wig and buy/find a suitable belt, then do the ears and horns and Lammy is finished!

17/11/2008 - Progress (Posted 17th November 2008)

1:30PM
Just finished the pants. :D I took an old pair of jeans that I don't wear anymore and used some green and yellow fabric left over from past sewing projects to make pocket covers, sewed them on and voila - Lammy pants! This cosplay hasn't cost me a single penny yet, but that'll soon change - I do need to buy a wig, after all!

My sister just gave me an old red shirt that she doesn't wear anymore and said that I could use it for Lammy. :D I'm in the middle of making a stencil for the design!

Boy, this cosplay is going a lot faster than I planned. XD

___________________

4:20PM
I've painted the first coat of white paint on the shirt for the happy splat/cloud logo thing, and I've uploaded a photo collage of the progress I've made so far. :D When the shirt's dried, I'll paint the next coat!

___________________

6:15PM
Second coat of white paint is done :D Waiting for it to dry.

9:00PM
Third coat of white paint is done...and I've run out of paint. D:

16/11/2008 - Started. :D (Posted 16th November 2008)

3:50PM
I only added this cosplay yesterday and already I'm working on it. XD So far I've started making the watch (I wanted to keep the cartoony feel of Lammy, so I've decided to make my own), and that's almost finished - I just need to get my hands on a piece of velcro to keep it held together around my wrist, and then that'll be done.

I also started the shoes - my sister, FreyaCrescent (who, coincidentally, is my partner for this cosplay) had a pair of blue shoes that she had previously used for cosplay in the right shade for Lammy's shoes, except that the soles weren't white. Seeing as she needed them white for the cosplay she was using them with anyway, I said I'd paint them for her if I could use them. So, they're currently drying as I type, then I'll be adding a second coat. :D

Finished the watch! :D Decided to go with a popper instead of a piece of velcro, as I couldn't find any of the latter and I have plenty of poppers in my sewing kit. Now for the second coat of paint on the shoes!

Shoes are now finished! :D Just need to wait for them to dry.
