Costume Information

Description
Ahh, Yuri. What an awesome character. As soon as I played Vesperia, I said that I had to cosplay as him, so I tried a few months later. This was the first cosplay I worked on with a sewing machine, which made it easier and more difficult then before. I really should have started sooner.

I finished the jacket first, it amazingly went pretty smoothly and I love the outcome. The only thing I don't like it that I didn't have enough material or time to put all the details on the jacket.

The shirt is where the problem was. Oh. My. God. This thing was difficult for one very good reason: I ran out of black material half-way through and spent a good day or so trying to figure out the best way to use the material I had left. I saved the black for the sleeves and front of the shirt and....used the remaining grey material for the back. Bleh. The sewing of the white details went okay until the material started coming out. I knew this would happen but I was in a hurry, so I didn't mind. Overall, the shirt is a pain. I didn't finish it till the morning of the con at my friend's house because I couldn't figure out how to get the friggin sleeves on because, like an idiot, I felt rushed and sewed the entire back on before thinking through. Yeah....I'm remaking the shirt.

I still need to make boot covers, the Blastia and but some black pants (I used my softball uniform pants for the con, hehheh) and a wig (borrowed because I ran out of time to buy one) and I want to make the details on the back. Maybe that'll be my mission for May 2010.

But despite the troubles, I loved wearing it and I was the only Yuri cosplayer and one of three Vesperia cosplayers at the whole con. Once it's fixed up, I'll be wearing it again.

EDIT
21/01/11
Updating to complete because...for it's time, it was complete, and I don't see myself working on fixing it up anytime soon. If I do cosplay default Yuri again, it'll be practically a complete overhaul (using only the jacket from this one) so...yeah. This one is done... It was awesome practice for my first time using a machine, but it looks like crap compared to my newer stuff. XD
