I'm going to cosplay as Near for Naka-kon but I don't know what to do about the costume and wig. I've looked at several places online for both and I'm going to go to thrift stores to look for the costume. Also, it has to be affordable ^^

Thanks in advance!

I'm assuming this is who you're referring to?

Also, I've looked up "how to make wigs" and it seems to be equal in value as to buying a custom made wig from a wig manufacturer:

As far as the actual costume goes, it looks to be a simple outfit. Simply a white baggy sleeved button-up dress shirt or pajama shirt with a white baggy pant. Both shirt and pant will have to be "crisp" looking with "depth", so go with a 100% cutton (or adjacent) type of material clothing. Of course a pair of white socks -- the clothing can be pennied at Thrift-Stores for cheap while the wig can be pretty pricey no matter how you look at it. Now I'm not saying these are the only method(s), just a suggestion in a sea of opportunity :crylaugh: I hope this helps and good luck!

These are the things I was thinking about and I know the wig isn't a Near wig but it's similar and I can curl it ^^

Oh it wasn't? I do apologize for that! :crylaugh:

Yes, those links look sufficient enough for the Near outfit. Nice finds *thumbs up* I was thinking more of a cotton based outfit, since that's what it looks like in the google pictures? Cotton clothing has that "crisp" look to it with a more defined shape, just a suggestion ;)

I'm not sure if the clothes I found are made with cotton ^^;
