View Full Version : Anyone Cosplay Kyo - Myaku?

07-24-2003, 01:14 AM
Hi! ^.^ I somewhat just now joined. I've been a Dir En Grey fan for a really long time. Although I've never cosplayed my favorite singer before. >.< Never had the time to. ;_;

Well now, I do have time and I would love to cosplay Kyo's Myaku costume. But the thing is, I dont know where I can get thoes little tube type things or even where to start. @.@;;; Is there anyone who can help me get started, or even help me make (to some point) make it? If its not too much trouble. ^.^;;

Thank~ :D

I'm just starting a Myaku Kyo. ^^ For the tubes, a friend of mine reccomended using jumpropes, because that's what she used on hers and it worked really well.

die-chan's cosplayed Myaku Kyo. It was her first cosplay, actually, and it looked AMAZING.

See her cosplays at http://www.twilighthush.com/prototype -- i think she used vinyl tubing or something. ?? Im not sure

Like twilighthush and yuki mentioned already, go to your local party store. That's where I found some to make a Myaku Kyo cos. Neon jump ropes that has a sparkle gel inside of it, just cut them open and drain them. ^_^ If you have any problems locating some let me know. I can check places here, since they most likely still carry them.

Thanks alot! ^.^

Also, where do you think I can get that pink dragon he has? O.o;;

You might be able to find fabric with that detail on it. If you can't, you can hand embroider it: get fabric of that color, cut it out in the shape you want, and stitch it on.

I am going to cosplay Myaku Kyo [as well as Raison D'etre - I decided I can't decide so I will do both. :P]
Maybe you shyould have a look around discount store and craft stores too. I know I have seen that sort of tubing before, I just don't know where.... But I guess it wouldn't help since I live all the way over here... :p But I think you can buy it by the metre if you look hard enough.

Guess what i am having a bum time in finding? SAFETY PINS! >_< I guess I will make the trip to the craft store then... but isn't that just weird???

For painting the dragon, try to use embelishing paint. It should come in flourescent colours in squeezie tubes... I can't seem to find a bottle to find the brand, but it has a picture of a painted flower on it with a black label and lid. Anyway just brush it on. It looks good. They are mostly bright and pearlised colours and they can be mixed.

I hope that helped somewhat. :P

hi Die-chan its me KyoAntiChrist666!! ::waves::...oh jumpropes is a great idea..i got some..

Neon jump ropes really do work. My bf made a Myaku Kyo costume, and found perfect jump ropes at kaybee. You can also get clear tubing at home depot. For the cross, my bf used little bracelets (the type with neon tubing and sparkles). He made the cross out of wire and ran the tubbing around it.

After all that it really looked awesome.

i found mine at k*mart

a while back i saw some on Ragdolly.net that were like..hair tubes and shitnits :D

u might be able to use those...

but a lOT of jumpropes comes w/ like..this fluid thing inside w/ like glitter
just drain that out, use a bit of soap, it will come right out

and then use saftey pins like kyo does :)

if anyone needs pink pvc, i got like 3 yards of it laying around >_> i got it AFTER i made my myaku costume...i want to remake it..but..augh...


<lazy pants>

07-28-2003, 01:26 AM

07-28-2003, 12:44 PM

I went to my local craft store. [Huge two floor place] Found some tubing, and it was all solic colours! >_<; There was some plain clear too... how dare they tease me so! I guess when I want to actually buy it, I will ask if they can get any in for me. :p But isn't that typical? >_<; I am not looking forward to buying a whole heap of coloured jump ropes... :P

07-29-2003, 03:39 PM
how many ppl are planning to do myaku??
*remembers when it was just like..me and this girl in Cali)

07-29-2003, 04:27 PM
my friend used thin glow sticks (the necklace type), and they looked pretty close.

here's a pick of her costume so you can judge yourself: geocities.com/tabifu/cp-kyo1.jpg

Hmmmm I might grab a whole lot when I do it. That sounds fun!

die-chan: Mweeeh! I am kinda lucky over here because NO ONE ever cosplays JRock! XD So as long as i do costumes that no one over here doesn, I don't mind. But you have to admit, it is an interesting and cool costume, so i guess that is the attraction? Well I know Myaku and Raison D'etre are two of my fave songs and I plan to cosplay both of those. :p So it could be the songs themselves? Hehehe...!

:D hehehe my tubes have glitter hahaha..i thought the ropes had watery stuff ...but the didn't -_-; so i have glitter ropes..hehehehe i'm Glitter Myaku Kyo!!! hahahaha XD

... I have clear pink vinyl lying around too, so if anyone needs to buy it and die-chan has already sold it all you can come to me too. -_-; I have about a yard or two I think. Can't remember. x_X; It was supposed to be for Rich (er... Bondage Boy Kyo) but his MO never arrived so yeah......

Myaku is a fun outfit, but I've never wanted to do it (yet). Otherwise I'd just use the material myself (which might happen if I don't get rid of it within the next year or two). ^^;
