Forget what I said before about Lara Croft and Peach in regards to my cosplay for Halloween this year. I have stumbled on the most epic idea: Nyan Cat. Damn straight. It’s good for a warmer option, because it involves pants and a long sleeve shirt, and I have an indoor/outdoor Halloween party to go to the weekend before, plus taking my niece out trick or treating on Halloween.
If you don’t know what Nyan Cat is, then I suggest you google (Haha, I’ve always wanted a reason to “let me google that for you!”) or youtube it for all it’s glory. It is hilariously awesome and extraordinarily catchy. Plus who doesn’t love cats, poptarts, and rainbows?
Well, I was skyping with a friend of mine, and as our conversation began to lull, he started playing Nyan Cat. That was two nights ago and I’ve had the song stuck in my head since then. So I start googling cool things people have done with Nyan Cat. I stumbled upon other people’s ‘cardboard’ Nyan Cat cosplays and thought, I could do much better than that. May the Nyan Cat cosplay commence!
I’ve sketched my costume quickly, and without a tablet, in Photoshop to give ya’ll an idea. It starts with a base of a gray long sleeved shirt, leggings, gloves, and boots. Then, a most colorful rainbow fabric will be attached either under the back of the dress or as a cape to flow to the ground. I’d wear a tan dress or tunic style shirt which will be “frosted” (probably with paint, but I haven’t fully decided yet) and sprinkled. Then, add the gray cat ears, tail, a little rouge, and there you have it! Nyan Cat!
I’ve also contemplated borrowing my mom’s iphone to attach underneath the top of the dress and have ‘Non-stop Nyan Cat’ on. I would probably drive people nuts, but it would be awesome. This makes me wish I had a smartphone to do stupid stuff like this with. Hahaha.
I’m so excited for this. I can’t wait to post pictures!
Anyone else have cool costume ideas that you’re doing this year?
Edit 9/25/11: I’m going to to do it. I found Nyan Cat on iTunes… and mini ipod speakers…. it’s on.
