Welcome to my gwee-face. The picture speaks for itself. (This was my ruling emotion the entire convention.)


Convention:
AnimeNEXT 2010

Characters:
Yami Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!

Cosplayer:
Katana (*Hikari-Katana)

Costume:
Pink ballerina slippers (from a dance store), white tights (from a dance store), pink tutu (from ebay), belt choker (made from a belt from Wal-Mart), wrist band (modified from a band from Wal-Mart), Punky XL black wig tipped with hot pink (from Amphigory.com), yellow hair extensions (from Sally's Beauty Supply), and the Millennium Puzzle (commissioned from =birdewilliams).

This costume was inspired by a scene Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series by Little Kuriboh when Yami says, "I'm here for my ballet classes! I should warn you, I look damn good in a tutu!" The wig was trimmed and then styled with Elmer's glue, pomade, and hairspray. Birde did the cutting and styling because I have no idea how to do those things myself. She also did my eye makeup.

Thanks! Oh yes, I plan on cosplaying again. I don't do it as much anymore because it's expensive and time-consuming... but hopefully when I do the quality will just be higher! ^_^;;

Thank you!  I'd have to make a new Yami wig (these crazy ones fall apart so quickly!), so I don't know when or if I'll be cosplaying him again, but thank you so much for your kind words!

No prob!  Your wonderful smile and terrific attitude adds much to your cosplay, I am positive it would not look as good without it!
