Every incident that passes has meaning

Me as Yuuko Ichihara
Source: XXXHolic
Photographed by: :icongangurolove: at Katsucon 2012
Costume made by me.

I completely handpainted all the swirly clouds just like the artwork this was based off of. A lot of people were amazed I did that, and some people thought I had bought fabric that looked like it. I only planned on wearing Yuuko for a few hours at Katsucon for one shoot, but I ended up getting a lot of photo requests so I stayed in this costume a bit longer to work with more photographers ^_^. One of them was *GanguroLove who was a pleasure to work with! It was a new experience to work closely with a female photographer. I think females have a different eye for things, and seem more sympathetic. She was also very patient! The bridge we photographed on was actually a really busy bridge, so there were people constantly walking between us, and of course several other photographers decided to crowd around. Gangurolove's shots definitely show no evidence of that, so kudos for making it look like an isolated shoot!

Walking in the super tall platform heels I modded was definitely a challenge, but they impressed a lot of people.

Feel free to ask questions, leave a comment, or even connect with me on my Facebook Cosplay Page. I'm on there A LOT [link]

I started watching XXXHolic recently and, today, was suddenly struck by the thought that a Yuuko cosplay would be really nice to see. I discovered your dA page I'm gasping at how amazing it all is! This is a beautiful costume, and you are an excellent cosplayer!! I really love the necklace and the colours :D :love:

Took too long T__T but I guess about 3 weeks total. 1-2 hours after getting off work kind of thing.
