Costume Information

Description
for a group with a good friend of mine in who lost there Yoko. <3

I've always wanted to cosplay Yoko because, despite how irking it can be when her chest is overly shown off, she's a great character with a warm heart.

The main thing that struck me with Yoko is that she also hates politics, and wants nothing to do with it.

Edit**
Man it's terrible how self conscious I feel about this now. >_<
