Here is a cosplay I made of Elsie from "The World God Only Knows".

You need a good nap after capturing all those loose souls.

AWESOME!!! how do you made the broom???? does it have any support inside to give it that shape? could please you give the list of materials. Thank you!

Glad you like! here are my materials:

Wooden Dowel
Twine (its like a scratchy stiff string)
Light brown grass hula skirt (I got mine at a Dollarstore)
paint/glue/sharpies/scissors/ a nail

I first started out by making a cone shaped paper ball and stapled it to the end of the wooden dowel. This was used to give the general shape of the broom because I didn't want to buy that much grass skirt to fill it in. But it is nicer too because if will always keep the right shape. I then took the grass skirt and cut off the waistband. I took the pieces of grass I cut off and then hot glued them too the paper base to resemble Elsie's broom. This is the artsy part, I found you want to try and leave a bit of spacing between different pieces to try and get a puffier look. (sorry it's hard to explain, hopefully you can see in the photo) Then I strung the twine around the part between the dowel and the paper base (this part doesn't actually hold anything together it is just glued for effect. the paper base and grass skirt should be firmly secured before)I then cut out the little dial from wood, painted it accordingly, and nailed it on. then just for finishing touches I trimmed bits of the grass for different lengths and to hide any fly a ways.

Hope this helped! Sorry it's long! It's a little confusing to explain, but feel free to ask any more questions! and Good Luck! I'd love to see pictures if you get it finished!

YAY!!!! It looks awesome!!! I love the 'hula skirt' trick (or it looks like that's what you used) because you can get it to come out just like the anime! I'm so glad I could be useful and happy you could understand my horrible explinations!!!! Congrats! \(^.^)/

You look amazing, where did you get the costume?
puppichu Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Awe thanks!:3 I made the costume myself, along with the broom, hair clip, and the little "loose soul". It was a lot of fun and the little skull clip's eyes flash red like in the series! ^.^

Hooowww? thats amazing!
Howd you get the eyes to light up?

Awe thanks! You're so sweet!
I used some LED lights I found at a hardware store and wired them to a switch. I then painted some clear plastic black and put it over the lights. That way when the lights turn on it'll shine through the plastic, but look black when it's off! ^^
