Nami (Mink arc) - One Piece Cosplay
I love One Piece, and Nami is really beautiful and cool! I wanted to cosplay with my friend as Carrot, and figured these were the easiest outfits to do. Nami wears this in the first half of the Mink arc.
Tutorial: How to Make Mink arc Nami
Wig - Arda Silky Luthien in Amber. I cut the bangs.
Top - I used two white shirts as a base. I cut off the sleeves and sewed black ric rac ribbon on the top portion. I made the straps using Emerald's swimwear straps tutorial. The bottom half of the top has a fishline hem. Fishline is only $3 for 500 yds at Walmart, so this was much cheaper than horsehair braid.
Skirt - Red knit fabric from Joann. I made 2 full circle skirts with a fishline hem and layered the shorter one on top of the longer one.
Log Pose - I bought 3 plastic round domes from the game machines at Walmart and used the top part. I cut out a compass arrow shape from a plastic container and painted it white and red. Then I stuck a pin into the arrow and glued it onto the round container. I bought wooden circles from Hobby Lobby and painted it yellow with blue circles. I bought a wooden cuff and painted it yellow too. Then I glued the round containers onto the wooden circle, and that onto the wooden cuff. I wrapped some white elastic around my wrist to find the circumference of my wrist and sewed that together to make a loop. Then I fabric glued the white elastic onto the inside of the wooden cuff. This will keep the wooden cuff taut on my wrist even though it was bigger.
Jewelry - I bought white clip-on earrings from Claire's and golden bracelet from Forever 21.
Tattoo - I made my own using Joann's temporary tattoo paper.
Contacts - Barbie Gossip 3 Tones Brown from Uniqso
Debut: On-location only
