... it's time for the Reaper (costume) Review!

Yeah, so, The World Ends With You is quickly becoming one of my favorite DS games. And A-Kon is coming up pretty soon... so I figured I'd do a little inexpensive and fun costume:




.. a Wall Reaper. Specifically, the one on the right. The clothes are pretty easy, actually, since I have most of them in my closet, with the exception of the bandanna and the black hoodie with the tribal design.

As it turns out, there isn't a black hoodie out there with a tribal design that matches the Reapers' clothing... and a good part of the fun of "cosplay"is making your own, so after spending some quality time in Inkscape, I came up with a neat stencil pattern of the tribal designs on the arms and shoulder/chollarbone area of the hoodie. Fortunately, it looks like both designs are symmetrical, so application looks to be a simple matter of painting in one "side", then flipping it over to get the other side.

Since I had to hunt all over creation trying to find these patterns, and then ended up having to create my own,I figure I might as well share the results with anybody else interested.

So, here's the stencil template for the sleeve tribal design:

and the shoulder/collar:

They're at 300 dpi, so they're suitable for printing out and using as a stencil base. Enjoy, you hectopascals!
