Description
I loved being Yuna!! Her debut was for Sunday of October MCM Comic Con 2014 - commissioned costume due to time constraints!

Yuna appears in Final Fantasy X as a high summoner, she also appears in X-2 briefly at the beginning of the game.

I made the default rod completely from scratch and styles the wig (plus boots) myself :)

Commissioned parts were:
-White top with hanging sleeves, pink tints
-Obi with Hibiscus and floral pattern
-Big bow on the back from Obi
-Skirt with floral pattern
-Jewels

A bit about Yuna (from Wiki):

Quote '"The people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded...never forget them."

Yuna is the female protagonist of Final Fantasy X. She is the daughter of High Summoner Braska and an unnamed Al Bhed woman, who died when Sin attacked her ship at sea.

A powerful summoner like her father, she embarks on a quest in Final Fantasy X to expel Sin; meeting Tidus during the quest he teaches her that there is more to life than sacrifice.

In her first appearance in Final Fantasy X, Yuna is seen wearing an ensemble similar to those worn by Yevonites; with a blue pleated, flower-patterned dress, black boots, a black spaghetti-string camisole under a white sash of material that wraps around her neck and over her chest. A yellow patterned Obi with a Chōchō musubi knot and a decorative Obidome to clinch the cords. Two separate, kimono-like, sleeves hanging from her upper arms complete the white and blue ensemble. Through both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 she keeps a small, blue-beaded earring that hangs from her right ear, hidden by a lock of her hair, woven into blue beads with gold rings around the larger, middle bead, and a silver pendant around her neck. She has a heart-shaped face with small features. A unique trait of Yuna is her heterochromia; her left eye is a normal blue, while the right is green to represent her half-Al Bhed heritage, though without the characteristic spiral.

Yuna is a kind-hearted, loyal, honest and polite humanitarian who strives to see the best in others and has a strong conviction to complete whatever task she feels is her duty to perform. She often places the needs of others above her own, often considering her needs secondary, or less significant, than the needs of others.

1st wig test (Posted 30th August 2014)

Wig number one came for Yuna just testing it out to decide whether the colour and length is right as photo taking makes it look different xD this colour is more liked to the concept art af some cgi

A second wig is coming next week which is a more full brown - I would need to cut that!

We wait... (Posted 20th August 2014)

Commissioned the outfit today - I'm sad I can't make this one all by myself due to time constraints but needs must! Hopefully it will arrive by October! I will be wearing it with Lulu and Rikku!

Wig (Posted 10th August 2014)

As usual I start with the wig! It will only need slight amending :)
