Nami - Off To The New World! by Flaming-Goddess Nami - Off To The New World! by Flaming-Goddess
Nami (Timeskip) - One Piece

At Otakon I was finally able to get some more pictures of Nami with the terrific *ckdecember, although I didn't wear her much during the weekend (even though I'm sure it would have been more suited for the Baltimore heat). And of course, with it being One Piece, I just had to get some pictures by the water and boats that were docked in the bay. I always love cosplaying Nami and meeting One Piece fans and cosplayers, so wearing her and Boa were a treat as always.

The wig is a Luthien in Pumpkin Orange from Arda Wigs (all I did was style the bangs), and the top is from Tilly's (although the color I bought it in is no longer available), with the designs added by me. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me! :D

DISCLAIMER: Yes, my chest is indeed on the bigger side; I don't need to be reminded or informed of this ;) (so please, don't just comment for the sole sake of telling me). And while I, like every girl, likes to be told I'm attractive, constantly commenting about how sexy I look gets old. Constructive critiques and compliments are the things I like to see. I'm sure this probably gets annoying to see on all of my stuff, for which I apologize. Thanks for reading this. :)

Great likeness! Good choice of character.

Hello, Stargirl Caraway. How are you? I have a question. Which word would you prefer to call your midriff? Stomach or tummy?:eager:

(Please reply. Thank you.)

Great Nami (and so sexy too).

Best cosplay of her I've seen. You're absolutely perfect for her, and I know you probably hear this every day, but you may be the single most beautiful cosplayer there is. Jessica Nigiri and the like can't even hold a candle to you! <3 Keep up the wonderful cosplays!

just wanted to say, ive never seen someone pull off nami as well as you :) this is such a fantastic cosplay!

This particular photo out of all the Nami cosplay shots I've seen thus far, is probably the closest to what I would imagine Nami to look like if she stepped off the page. Good job! To me it looks like you nailed it! I know you probably don't want to hear it but I think it's rare to have the outfit/costume match up with the figure. Lately it's seems cosplayers are getting better though.

I'm not sure if I commented on any of your cosplay pictures before (I don't think I have, since I assume I only saw some shots on the account of ~Swoz) but anyway!
You can be a good cosplayer, an ok cosplayer or a bad cosplayer (you yourself are certainly from the first category), but sometimes you just HIT the character. And this is the case here. You make a perfect Nami. I mean, I've been reading One Piece for almost 10 years now and probably spent few weeks of my time all together constantly seeing pictures of cosplayers from around the world (and being main One Piece girl Nami gets cosplayed a LOT),  but you're by far my favorite. The costume looks accurate, the way it suits your figure, the type of fabric you chose and colours - bingo. The wig is nicely styled and looks really juicy in that shade of orange. Your face is really-really cute and I think works so good for this character, your playful smile and even make-up on your eyes - all of that clearly leaves no contest to all other people. I'm not even going to comment on your outstanding complexion because that is obvious to all.
I think you should really consider doing more of her outfits, timeskip or not, probably something from the games or movies or Oda's coloured pages? And then send it to SBS! This beautiful work needs all the glory and recognition!

yay nami *happy reindeer dance*

awesome cosplay. I am hoping to get a luffy costume together at some point but I would have to work out a lot to get his post time-skip abs lol

Baltimore wasn't that hot this past summer. Nice shot of you by the Constellation. I can even see part of the MD Science Center in the background.

Sorry. I'm a local boy. If I can spot you at Otakon this year, my wife and I would love a picture. :)

I'm sorry to bring up your chest. I'm not trying to be rude, but I am a man and we do notice. All I want to say is that I the Nami costume just isn't that complex. It's nice that you are able to pull the look off because Nami's chest, "is indeed on the bigger side" as well. Otherwise you wouldn't like as much like her. I've seen other cosplay girls try to be Nami (and other bigger chested characters) and not look the part because not many girls have enough on top. I appreciate that out of almost all of your other costumes you wouldn't really be able to tell as much what your physique might be. It's more about the clothes and the wigs and most importantly the details! It's rare to see women as physically attractive as you into anime cosplay at all, (especially such relatively obscure anime) and even more rare to see a woman show integrity about not flaunting it too much when she is "on the bigger side." So I'm just saying I appreciate a rare gem of a model when I see one.

It's awesome that you have the option play a bigger chested character (because there tend to be a lot of them) but it's obviously not about your chest with you. Keep up the good work and keep up the integrity. :0)

You and your photographer found a nice place to take the pic. Reminds me a real life drawing of the master Oda, like the ones he usually puts on the beginning of the episodes.

I know this is a bit random to say, but I checked Tilly's website just to double check if they maybe were selling the color top you used, and it looks like they have it again. Woohoo!! This is a wonderful cosplay, by the way!
PureNagara Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
This is a really good cosplay and I hope you don't take this the wrong way, you're in amazing shape, but a major hinderence for me is that DA watemark is driving me crazy.
Flaming-Goddess Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Student General Artist
I put it there because this picture kept popping up all over the Internet without any sources, so I was hoping it would stop people from posting it. And thank you!
PureNagara Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
That's terrible. A friend of mine who's a nude model had some cropped nudes of her being passed off as "original photography" on Deviantart. Some people. *rolls eyes*

blueonions Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012

My only nitpick is your facial expressions. I think somebody already commented on that.

From what I've seen, one of the main reasons that Nami is so popular is because of how much personality she has. When she's mad, she's furious. When she's happy, she's childishly giddy. When she's confident, she gloats like it's nobody's business. And being as talented and as passionate about the character as you are, I certainly think you could carry over those emotions in your photoshoots.

But I also understand that you're just modeling and showing off your kick-ass outfit, which is why it's just a nitpick.

You got everything else down perfectly. The heels, the hair style and color, the little rings on the pants, the top, the posture, all perfect! (^_^)b Did you make the top yourself?
Flaming-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Student General Artist
Expressions are definitely the thing I need to work on (which is a little ironic, since I'm an actress and I never have any trouble with them onstage >.<). I think it's mostly because I'm hyper-critical when it comes to my expressions, and my faces tends to derp up pretty easy so I tend to stick to the same couple of expressions. Hopefully in the future I'll figure out how to make it all work. And no worries! I appreciate the feedback a whole lot, seriously!

And thank you! I bought the swim-suit top itself, then designed the top decals and put them into photoshop, printed em on iron on transfer paper, then stuck em on (which involved an extremely interesting process including some padding and a large grapefruit to keep the shape...).
blueonions Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
That poor grapefruit. All it wanted was to be eaten that day! XD
ryo-hazuki-111 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
is that your real hair or is it a wig?
Flaming-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Student General Artist
That is a wig, unfortunately. But I love the color so much!

Really nice and WOW how does that top stay on with out flying off :D
dafne-h Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
this is seriously beautiful. I'll never get over your top, it's perfect.
And I also love the wig length, I get all awkward when I see a good Nami cosplay and the wig is too short. Though Nami's hair is a mutant in the manga.
Are you planning on making a log pose anytime soon?
Nice job on everything. :) you're adorable.
Flaming-Goddess Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012  Student General Artist
Thank you so much!
The top was probably the most labor intensive part of the costume (getting the designs on included some padding, an iron, and a large grapefruit to keep the shape all right. It was interesting to say the least XD).
I definitely understand. I'm super super picky when it comes to wigs, and luckily Arda seemed to have just what I needed. And yes it is! Lordy. I just sort of attempted to figure out the average length and went with it. I love both of your wigs! You found a really nice balance between the curl and waves! And your New World log pose looks awesome!
I do have a log pose (and I am wearing in that picture, it just fell to the side unfortunately), but I need yo remake it since I'm not totally happy with it. And thanks again! :D
dafne-h Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
yes, a while after I posted this comment I realized I've already seen you with the Log Pose, which is very good, by the way, you did it on your own? very nice handwork! :D
My top had to be sewed and made as a gym bra (is that how you call it?) or else it wouldn't hold my breasts at all. They're too heavy and unlike you I didn't have a good posture so my back hurts a LOT. Like, really.
thank you so much! I was really picky with the wig, took me some time to decide which one to buy and I still think it is a little bit too long, but I didn't want to cut it and end up ruining it. I only cut the bangs, which was an amateur job that ended up quite good, actually.
the Log Pose was made by my Robin friend, I wasn't really planning on making one but she decided to give me as a gift. :love: and thanks! ;)
