Since tutorials are the heart and soul of this blog, let's start there, yeah? There's a newer anime out called Hataruku Maou-sama (or, Devil is a part-timer). It's a cute comedy about a not-so evil devil and his friends who escape to earth. They are all poor, so Maou works at McDonalds. Only that's a trademarked name I guess because they call it MgRonalds. :)
I bought two boy-sized red polos at Target for $6 each. Then I ordered two red visors online for $3 each, hoping that they'd be similar shades of red. Luckily, they were. I did some research and thought I'd try using heat transfer vinyl for the shirt decals instead of my more typical choice of printable iron on paper. I bought two sheets of Siser easy weed, yellow and white, for $3.50 each. Vinyl is a little more pro that iron on paper, and hopefully lasts longer. I think it looks better anyway.
Now. First up, the collar on my shirt is red. It needs to be black.
|See how it's lifting when I pulled the plastic off? I had to go back and press it down again.|
Sak found a picture of the MgRonalds logo online, and traced it in the silhouette software so we could cut it out. Remember to reverse the image. One layer for white, and one for yellow. Once cut on the machine, I "weeded" the parts I didn't want by peeling them off the plastic.
I think this is my favorite casual cosplay so far. It's easy - just pair with black pants. It's comfy, cause it's normal clothes, and it looks pretty good! I was proud enough of this "normalish" one to show my coworkers and boss my cosplay pictures this time even. HAHA. I guess I could only stay in the otaku closet for so long anyway >.>"
So...Maou-sama with Emi or Chi? Haha!
I vote Emi. Destiny! ;)
