The World Ends With You

Last Updated: 08-18-2008


I wrapped up the costume kind of fast before ACen 08. I used an old beanie hat I had in my closet, and cut a paper skull(I ran out of fabric to use) and sowed it on my hat. It turned out to look "okay", so I need to get a bigger hat and get some fabric to redo it. I may add some blonde hair underneath the hat to complete it 100%. The shirt I bought at Sears for $10, and I used red arcylic paint, to paint the arm ends(again, no fabric). I bought a big chain and a skull chain and hot glue-gunned the necklace together. I had to spray paint them both, and as a tip, spray painting metal does not work. I found out that by using a gloss spray it could help the color, so it turned out pretty good. I bought the wristband at a Hot Topic for about $10. I had a friend working at a shoe store so I found perfect shoes, with the right combination of red and black. I went lazy with the pants and wore my khakis that I had. When I finish up my costume I'll do it better. To finish it off, I bought a skateboard to complete my Beat costume. I haven't seen a Beat cosplayer with one on cosplay.com yet, and I think it was a nice addition to my costume. All in all, it's not complete yet, but I believe it will look better if I spent more than a day on it ^_^

I have been so lazy with this costume. I haven't touched up on it that much since ACen 08. I bought a long chain to add to my side instead of rope(like I did at ACen). I re-did my hat and made the skull a bit better. I noticed that most of my pictures that I got were not done correctly. I didn't notice that Beat had his hat pulled all the way down up to his eyes(hiding his eyebrows), so most of my pictures aren't very accurate(This isn't embarassing at all!). I hope I can work on it some more before my next convention because I'll have a good 6 months to touch up on it. Until then!
