Mello Cosplay by AlmightySponge Mello Cosplay by AlmightySponge
The wig I got at V.V., around Hallowe’en times, which is always the best place to find costume apparel early Occy, but you’ve got to remember that they trash all of it once the Candy Holiday has passed, so, if you’re looking for good wig selection out of season and don't want to use eBay, try a costume shop, there’s lots, look in the phonebook.
This wig was ALMOST perfect when I got it, I only had to tailor it just a wee bit before it was perfect, plus it’s got a really nifty net inside I can tuck all my hair up into, it’s a sweet deal. It’s nothing compared to the damn Matt wig… HOURS of snippy-snip, I took that matt of red fluff from Velma from Scooby-Doo to the Beatles.
I also think I may have chopped off a little of Heather’s actually hair…
o.o
xD She’s going to kill me.

The rosary is a lovely thing I found lying about my house, however, this is NOT the rosary I’ll be using for the ‘con, since it was ripped to shits at a school dance. ]:
Niwa is lending me another rosary just like it, white, too, just a slightly different style so all should be good.
Note that rosaries are fragile and should not be boogied in. :0

The vest was a V.V. It’s not at all tight enough… but that’s a bit of a good thing. I don’t want Mello to look all the more girlier because everyone can see my bust… >.>
It’s a nice vest. Buttons us, though, which is not amazing… I was hopping for a viper for authenticity, but Value Village is completely random so it’s best to just take what you can get and be happy.

The leather jacket was something my mom bought for me (and a matching one for herself… oddly enough…;) whilst she was going through her ‘midlife crisis’. You know the one… when she bought the Harley? …then broke it a week later. *sighs*
I sewed on part of a feather boa I bought at V.V. They’re pretty common though, at craft shops, so don’t fret. Black stitches are hard as hell to see, but the ‘foofyness’ effect is WAY worth it. ;P
Note that leather jackets are thick and get really hot indoors. O.O!

The gloves are a V.V. THEY ARE TIGHT. O.< Tight and black. Tiiiiight and blaaaaack.

The belt was a V.V. It’s just a black belt.
Nuff said.

The belt BUCKLE was bought at an adorable kiosk in our mall, run by the family of one of my girlfriends, Rabia. xD They have the CUTEST STUFF! It’s also where I bought the chain. ;3
I had to attach the buckle speerately to my belt, which isn’t all that hard, but it’s a heavy trinket, goodness. I tried to go for accuracy but Mello’s belt buckle is a particular one. So I went for an alternative.

It’s a bling-y gun.
Seems very Mello.

The pants are another V.V. They’re pretty good, do up at the crotch like they’re supposed to and everything. ;D Even though they aren’t leather… sadly…
I wear them all the time! Mostly just because I like them so much, they are comfortable… but also because Mello’s black pants are torn up at the cuff, if I’m not mistaken, and I REFUSE to take scissors to these god-pants, so I figure by wearing them a lot they’re just naturally fray. At the time this pic was taken, just after I bought them, they were pristine and now, half a year later, they are all frayed, mostly just in the back, but the fron soon and then we’re in business! ^___^

And, as for the shoes, they’re my work shoes, ordered them from the ‘Shoes for Crews’ catalogue, they’re anti-stick and anti-slip. (Mello likes to be prepared XD) And they are the ‘Lotus’ brand, probably the most expensive part of the outfit, minus perhaps the jacket, because I honestly have no idea how much that was, plus the boa sewed to it cost 7 bucks so probably quite a bit plus that. But, yeah, they’re just black shoes, no biggie. Most people own black shoes already, anyway. And if you don’t, just nick some from your bother or old man. :nod:

OH! And the gun.
It’s was from a dollar store for about 1.99, came with three plunger bullets.
I shot one in Mary’s eyeball on a test run.
Then broke it the next day. ):
I’ll go get another one… when I get around to it.

XD
