I love One Piece, and Nami is really beautiful and cool! After marathoning half the show, I decided to do it. I also exercised more for this.
Wig - Arda Silky Luthien in Amber. I cut the bangs.
Bikini - I bought green lycra fabric from ebay seller Fabricall and followed Pattydoo's bikini tutorial and Emerald's swimwear straps tutorial. I cut out shapes from blue painter's tape and painted over it with white tulip fabric paint. I put in bra pads before sewing it closed.
Pants - Levy's bootcut jeans from Amazon. For the circles, I glued brown felt onto wooden circles that I painted yellow. Then I hand-sewed it to the pants.
Belt - I used the police utility belt that I bought for Judy as a base. I glued gray bias tape onto the middle of the belt. For the berry symbol, I used sculpey clay and glued it onto a wooden circle that I painted black. Then I glued velcro onto the circle. For the white bullets on the left, I used sculpey clay and glued gray fabric around it. For the gray circles on the right, I cut circles from gray fabric, glued it onto the belt, and then made gray doughnut circles and glued that on top. I sewed a U-shaped piece onto the right from faux black leather fabric. I made it so that I could carry my phone there.
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 - First one was bought from Ebay. Afterwards I made my own from Joann's temporary tattoo paper.
Shoes - Borrowed my mom's heels.
Contacts - Barbie Gossip 3 Tones Brown from Uniqso
Debut: A-Kon 2016
