hi! i am really short on time for animazement and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas of how i could make an easy mana costume or something, cause they are having a j-rock thing and i wanted to go to it. :/ but like i said kinda short on me time. what would be an easy way to put together a mana costume? any help would be awesome! thanks!:)

Mana has an endless amount of outfits, and quite a few easy ones. His Beast of Blood dress is rather straight forward, for example. If you want something a bit more flashy, his Cyberland dress is also simple but has a lot more color to it to stand out. I can provide some images. I can't really help with construction, but I know something as basic as the Beast of Blood dress would probably just need an easy to find pattern.

Yu~ki's Beast of Blood outift is also easy. Hit a thrift store, pick up a black blazer and pants, blue tie, you're set. ^^;

hey, don't feel like you gotta even copy a real outfit. You can always be creative and put together a j-rock inspired outfit that would be just as impressive and you wouldn't have the pressure of quickly matching make-up, hair and all that.

Um, or look into Kozi's Cyberland costume maybe? It'd be a really quick deal if you find good sparkley fabric and just a bit of fur. And a few other details. But that's the easiest I can think of sewing construction-wise.

Yeah, I did an original J-rock costume and wore it to Katsucon. A lot of people thought it was neat, even once I'd told them it wasn't actually from a band. I was worried ppl might look down on original costumes. But I only got positive responces:D
