Great looking Yoko.

How did you keep your hold ups to stay up (since you had them on top of tights), any tips? :)

thanks everyone! and ranma, tit tape is my savior, seriously it held the bikini top up, the gloves and the tights! ann summers sell it by the reel for a tenner, but medical tape will do the same job if you can get it, hope that helps! :)

^_^ ok thanks for the tip.
Hmm so tit tape will stick hold ups (or in my case home made thigh high boot covers) onto tights so they will stay up? Ok, off to look up Ann summers.. :P

Ranma, my friend Amy told me about something called 'sock glue' which might be helpful to you with other things as well, hope thats useful! x

Journal

kitacon (Posted 12th April 2010)

Kitacon was awesome and i got alot of positive feedback on the yoko cosplay! There's a couple of things i lose points on, one of them being a physical imparement that i have no control over, the others being the shorts. They are a little off, perhaps too long when i look at mine compared to the image references i have. I also don't have a finished gun. These things (short of what i cannot change) will be rectified for Amecon 2010 i promise.

how do i go out in public?! (Posted 7th September 2009)

ok, there's been a million billion yokos so this should be a cinch huh. Well its not. because today i tried on what i had so far and all i could see was flab! flab everywhere! so while i'm gonna finish making it, i'm not gonna wear it to a con till next year, for like, amecon or kita. that'll give me plenty of time to buff up without going crazy.

that darn wig (Posted 31st August 2009)

The images so far look backwards because of my webcam being weird and showing stuff the wrong way round! Oh yes, the wig. It tangles so easily! i'll end up tearing half of it out if i'm not really careful! the long bits (i think they are called bangs) need to be cut a bit nicer because they look quite blunt at the ends, which bugs me. all I need to do is style the boots, make the gloves and lose 10lbs. Then i'm set and ready to go! in the mean time i need to get to work on my dears cosplay!
