|Apart from Kaiba, Joey is my second favourite character from Yu-Gi-Oh. I wasn't too sure about cosplaying Joey but I was wearing a t-shirt under my jacket one day and the colours were identical to this outfit so I thought why not.|

FINALLY! (Posted 17th March 2014)
I finally have this completed to a standard that I am happy with and I cannot wait to wear this...not sure when I will be able to wear it though as plans are not set in stone for any cons yet. Just so happy that this is complete now ^_^
Jacket + Complete (Posted 23rd May 2013)
I have finally got round to remaking my coat for this outfit with better fabric. All I have to do now is hem the sleeves and collar, but I have had problems doing this as I was using left over fabric so I did have to cut corners with some things. ¬.¬ but overall it turned out okay ^_^ but with the coat done and it looks okay, this is officially done! ^_^
Styling The Wig (Posted 31st May 2011)
I have only worked on the wig for about 15 mins at the moment but I like how it's starting to look...I have never really styled a wig before and doing an anime one is a big step...but Got 2B Glued has been great with this wig so far...and the wig is more yellow up close...it was just very bright when I took the pictures. I am hoping to work more on in tomorrow
Wig Not Turned Up Yet (Posted 25th March 2011)
I'm getting anxious about the wig for Joey as it hasn't turned up yet and it's getting closer to Kita...I hope it does turn up as I really want to cosplay Joey so much...he is an awesome character...but yeah I just really want the wig now...fingers crossed for me
Trousers (Posted 22nd March 2011)
I have decided on the trousers that I will be wearing as Joey and they fit really well and they are the right shade of navy...that was the main problem with these trousers was that I couldn't find the right shade of blue and when I did they were the wrong type of trousers.
But I have nearly finished this one...working on adding sleeves to the jacket and getting that completed. I hope my wig turns up on time and then I need to find a pair of trainers that look like his...I'm going to be hunting in town tomorrow to see if I can find some.
I'm looking forward to being Joey for the day ^_^
Coat WIP 2 (Posted 13th March 2011)
I have been working on the coat again today and have gotten quite far in it...I have machine sewn most of it together. The only things I have to do with the coat now is sort out the collar and attach the sleeves. I'm happy with how everything has turned out with this cosplay so far.
Coat WIP (Posted 11th March 2011)
I have been working on my coat for this for a couple of days and it's looking good so far, just want to get it finished and I have been looking for the right trousers but I have had no luck so far but fingers crossed...I can't wait to cosplay Joey...he is such an awesome character...love him
Will post more pictures of the coat hopefully tomorrow
Wig Problems (Posted 2nd March 2011)
I found some wigs that would be good for Joey but the more I look at it the more I think the colour is wrong...but I have seen a wig that the colour seems to be perfect as its a more golden blonde which is what Joeys is. But it's a long wig and a lot of money considering I will be cutting most of it...I don't know what to do...the wigs are shown on the left...please let me know what you think....
I need to order the wig today if possible
Getting Started (Posted 2nd March 2011)
I have been thinking about if I should do this for Kita and I think I will give it a go as I already have to top and the fabric for the coat and I'm watching a pair of trousers that I think will go well...but I need to work out what wig I should get as I am not confident with wig styling and all the Yu-Gi-Oh characters hairs are crazy. But I need to work this out today as I need to order it and it needs to come from Hong Kong so I cutting it close I think...but I think I may start work on the coat today as it doesn't look as hard to do as Kaiba's so I will post progress on it soon.
Any advice on the wig will be useful...^_^
