How could I not? I loved him the moment I saw him in the Burial arc of Saiyuki Reload. I don't want to say too much because it's rather spoiler-ish if you haven't read past volume three of Reload.
Anyway, this costume turned out to be a bit of a pain. The fabric I brought smelled horrible for some reason so I hand washed it which was a BAD idea. Even after ironing/pressing while still damp I CANNOT get all the creases out. T_T Luckily they don't show too much in photos. I should have also put a side parting in the wig for this younger version of Ukoku, but I won't tell if you don't. XDDD

Monkey: There needs to more Nii love! XDD He's so awesome.
I'm glad you like it. ^_^

Odd-One-Out: Writing kanji is so hard, but I'm glad it looks passable. It's just Ukoku's, Sanzo's and Koumyou's name over and over. lol

Ah yes, I keep forgetting that sometimes Kanji writing is hard for others. Still, it's an excellent job :)
