Twintelle top help

Heyo!

What is the name of the top like this?

(Twintelle)

I'm trying to cosplay as Twintelle and I was wondering what the name of this top would be? or if there is a shortcut or no name, what can I do or get to achieve this look? I'm not good a sewing so I'm most likely going to buy this shirt and edit it from there. I really want the details on the shirt fabric.

Thank you very much!

I think it's called a halter turtleneck top. According to the reference photos you have, it looks teh creator of this used a knit fabric and quilted it to get the geometric design.

It's a halter with a standing collar. The straps in the back more than likely won't be on anything you find, you'll have to add those. I'd look at dance retailers, that shape and collar style are pretty common.

The quilted effect is not likely something you can find, you'll have to do that yourself.

Thanks so much Lunaflora & Penlowe! I'm going to look up some tutorials to get this look
Btw the two of you wouldn't happen to know what type of fabric this cosplayer uses for the top, would you?

Again, Thanks!

Looks to me like your basic knit fabric. Keep in mind that in quilting the design onto the knit fabric, you're making the knit fabric not be able to stretch anymore due to the stitching. I think they used batting of some sort for the quilting, which you would need to sew/shape to the body since batting is not stretchy either.
