"If everyone tries to perfect their art, it all starts to look the same." -Yoshimi Kurata

Hey, everyone! My name is Yu, and I'm a costume maker, dancer, performer, and doodler from the Pacific Northwest. I participate in the furry fandom as well as a few anime/manga ones, including Juuni Taisen, Owari no Seraph, and Vocaloid (not technically an anime, but you get the idea).

My fursona is Yu, a blue and purple tufted puffin/pelican hybrid ("tufted pufflican").

First things first, I launched a Patreon for my costumes, dancing, and costumed dancing, of which I have a ton planned for the summer and the future beyond that! Become my patron if you feel so inclined. Let's see what happens!

Additionally, I just wrapped up the little organizational bits from returning to dA after a hiatus. The main change here is that I have gotten rid of the "OLD STUFF" folder and moved all of its deviations into my Scraps section. "OLD STUFF" was a folder for outdated deviations that no longer accurately represented my interests or artistic style, but they would still show up in searches and the "More from YuPuffin" section, so sometimes they appeared to still be current when they really weren't. But I don't like deleting deviations, because I have spent hours searching for an old piece of art I thought I had lying around, and when I'm in the right mood I find it especially fun to flip through my old art. ("This was when I was into Bleach, and this was when I was in that roleplay, and then I found out about Wild Adapter" ... etc.) This has reduced my number of deviations from approximately 970 to more like 460, so I moved about 500 scraps, or over half of my existing deviations. I reckon that's a much more accurate number, as my deviation-submitting frequency has declined drastically as I've gotten older and my free time has gotten less and less. :dummy:
Now as deviations get outdated, if they do, I'll move them straight to scraps instead of keeping them in the "OLD STUFF" limbo.

I kept some deviations that were submitted years and years ago (and hence might be called "old") but are still at least somewhat relevant, like old cosplay photos and anime/Vocaloid fanart. That way, if you feel like it, you can see my progression as an artist even just sticking to my main gallery. :la:

Of course, if you wanted to flip through my hundreds of scraps to see what I was up to when I was 13-16 years old, you can do that too... I'll warn you, it's a bit of a black hole in there.

That being said, another reminder that if you want to see all of my doodles and sketches, you should watch my scraps, because I rarely finish everything these days but I still doodle a ton and hence I'll probably be making regular submissions to my scraps. (Heck, maybe I'll stick some WIPs in there every once in a while).

Looking Ahead
Before today I’m pretty sure I had exactly 0 good pictures of my Firo cosplay, but that’s fixed now!

Gotta love when you have a relaxing day that's not full of ruckus for once! (That's a pun... haha...)

This cosplay was assembled from various found parts, although the pants were made from scratch to match the suit jacket. (Finding a suit in any shade of green is really hard.)
However You Please

Yesterday was the official debut of my cosplay of Drossel Keinz from the Black Butler anime! This costume gets the award among all of my cosplays for “most procrastinated on” –  I had the inkling of an idea to cosplay Drossel when I first started cosplaying back in 2011~2012, and continuously considered doing so until now, when I finally did in reality.

2011~2012 is also when I was most into Black Butler, but I haven’t seen it since then, so I’m not at all caught up on the anime or manga, aside from a venture with my friends to go watch Book of the Atlantic while it was in theaters in my area. So Drossel is primarily a nostalgia cosplay for me, although it would be a lie to say I’m not still attached to him as a character.

I constructed from scratch all of the primarily visible parts of this cosplay – the hat, coat and pants – and also styled the wig quite a bit. The whole costume took about (well, almost exactly) 40 hours to put together, 30 of which were spent solely on the coat so I could get it to look just right. All things considered, I’m happy with the result, and I can’t wait to bring Drossel to Kumoricon in Portland, OR this October!

Dynamite Zippencrash Reference Sheet
I finally managed to put together a ref for Dynamite, my red river hog character (and one of my main Toons on Toontown Rewritten). This should give a good idea of his markings as well as what his wardrobe looks like.
