Thanks to Shinji, Kevin and Becky for the photos!
I never really intended to make this costume. I was at Wal-Mart looks for supplies for my Kadsuki costume when I found his sunglasses. Then I found a large white turtleneck, and one thing lead to anther, and the next thing I knew, I was making his costume. XD;;
The turtleneck was based on a large turtleneck I bought at Wal-Mart, but I altered it so much that only the collar of the original shirt was kept by the end. The purple part of the shirt was hand-sewn.
I cut up the bottom of the shirt and used no-fray to keep it from fraying. The gloves are a pair I found for a dollar and cut accordingly. As for the silver pieces, they were made from layers of cardboard put together and then painted.
The best part of this costume was cosplaying with Sakura as Kadsuki!
