Costume Information

I freaking LOVE Yae, she's a huge part of my childhood. I must have first played Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon when I was around 7 or 8, can't have been any older than that. I still have it. I remember learning about Japanese culture (in a slightly parodied way, of course) and loving every design and detail. I suppose back then it took me longer to play the game, nowadays I can finish it in a day or two, but it's still my second favourite game of all time (a close second to Zelda: OoT). I used to want to be like Yae when I was little, telling my mum I was going to dye my hair green! She's a role model to me, she's strong, independent and beautiful warrior, and I guess I wanted confidence like her. So, in short, Yae is very precious to me. <3 She's even a mermaid.

Anyway, as I dug out the game and played it the other day, I realised how much it would mean to me to recreate this love in a costume, and it hit me. DO IT. This year.

My longest description ever! But she's very special to me. I want to do this right. <3

I'd go for the shorter one, specially if its the perfect colour.

wig D: (Posted 21st February 2010)

i have a decision to make, haha..
there is a shop selling wigs the perfect colour. one is 31.5 inches which will finish kind of just before my butt. which is shorter than Yae's hair. And there is one that is 40 inches which is a LOT longer (like to my knees). BUUUT i dont really want another super long wig xD they get tangled and they are a nuisance. it will be tied at the bottom but still..
do i get the long one, for accuracy's sake, or do i get the shorter one for easiness' sake and sod it..?

Top (Posted 31st January 2010)

Bought the fabric and started making the top today. Just gotta hem the sleevey bits and take them in since it had no sleeves. Unsure on how to make the net-bits. i'll be continuing to work on this after school~
