When I was told that I needed a simple costume for the Sac show in January (to host), I instantly thought of Naru. I had the red skirt already from Velma and the yellow shirt I had bought at Target a week earlier just because I liked it. I bought the brown tights, I had the shoes, it was so convenient! The only things I really made were the wig and the necklace.
The wig was a Godiva wig in Henna Red (like the ones you can find on Amphigory) and I cut it shorter, then seperated the longer front parts and made those crazy gravity defying bangs. The hardest part was the antennae hair she's got, but it was still relatively simple with a lot of hairspray and some moderate heat. All told the wig took about 20 min. to style.
The necklace was made really quickly out of a chain I had already, a blue stone that I pulled off of an earing (which I got at Claire's, the kids accessories store) and I taped, yes TAPED, it to a little silver wire that I had, which I then fixed to the neck lace.
Overall, I had lots of fan boys while in this costume. One actually ran up behind me and... erm... touched me in a bad way. I gave him a REAL Naru-puch~ But despite that weirdness, it was really fun.
