This past weekend it was the XIX Manga Fair of BCN and I decided to make a TEMPURA KIDZ cosplay. I don't define myself as a cosplayer, I don't really like dressing up, but since I watch them in ONE STEP that I wanted to wear that outfit!

As I don't own a sewing machine I had to buy most of the parts, but afterwards I costumized them myself (as well as I could).

Here are the materials I bought and how they turned out

Plain cheap white sneakers. I doodled on them random things!

Neon shirts from sales (just 3€ each, yeah!). I draw the designs, in fact I traced them from a picture of them on my computer, painted them with photoshop and printed them on dark shirt tranfer paper and ironed them. It turned out much better than I expected, to be honest lol

The wristband. I did the skull with glitter glue.

The other things I bougth to complete the cosplay: american flag knee-high socks, metallic gold leggings and a wig.

And finally the kneepads. Those, I sewed them myself. I used some shoulder pad for the stuffing.

And the final result was something like this...

If you wonder where I am in that pic, you probably guessed right, I am in the Manga Fair, just in front of our association stand. We have fanzines about asian idols/music~ The heart-shaped glasses (on top of my head) were my personal addition to the cosplay XD As you may notice there are some parts (the things they wear on their shoulders) that I didn't make. But I didn't have the time, nor the money, nor the creativity, nor the resources to make them u_ú

And to end with this entry I will leave another pic of me with the guys of Sexy Mafia who were wearing a costume inspired by TEMPURA KIDZ' CIDER CIDER. They were the only ones who recognized my cosplay (apart from my friends in the association).

And that's all folks!

BTW, if you happen to want the pics to make your own ONE STEP shirt, here they are 1, 2, 3, 4 (if you want/need a different format, png or psd, just tell me and I will upload it for you. I posted the jpeg ones because the files are smaller and save space~)
