Description
Ive been obsessed with the manga for like 2 years now and Yoh has always been one of my top 3 characters from the series. I have a few friends who are into the series so hopefully Ill start a little group for a con sometime. Kitacon 4 is in mind right now.

May go for a light brown wig from the anime as opposed to blond/silver from the manga/art as I feel that the shade would suit my face best. Hope Ill be fine with my left side of my face covered as opposed to the right like useral. I sure have a talent for messing about with my face half covered without bumping into things XD

-POST CON COMMENT-
Enjoyed wearing but still gonna be in progress as there is so much that can be improved :P

Here is the tutorial I have made for the collar. Feel free to use as reference :D

Thanks :) we both want to have a proper photoshoot so a rewear is very likely sometime soonish XD

I just used the same method as most other DW cosplays, just carved and painted the detail instead of sharpied XD

Journal

Time to fix :D yaaaaay!!!!! (Posted 26th June 2012)

The collar for my partner in crime is nealy done and I am currently revamping the overalls :) Gotta be done before Monday for a cosplay event that night :P cant wait! Hopefully better photos as the pub we all congregate at the end would be PERFECT for a shoot! :D

I have more fabric and time to mess with so taking it nice and steady. All I need to do is replace the black on the legs, machine stitch over the (black) sleeves and sew over the emblem on the front pocket so its less frayed :D

Staying in progress as I wanna improve this (Posted 28th April 2012)

I wanna make the following changes-

-Dart the front
-Replace the black on the legs
-Remove the bias around the neckline and replace it
-Applique the red on the front pocket
-Consider buying footwear with height to be taller
-Get better makeup/binding

SUNUVABITCH WILL GET DONE TONIGHT!!!! (Posted 11th April 2012)

Even if I have to pull an allnighter!

I still gotta:
-Add emblem/symbol to the front pocket and sew the pocket to the suit
-Add the black detail to the front
-Add bias to the shoulders and collar
-Finish the black on the sleeves (REALLY dreading this as this is going wrong ¬¬ saving this til last)

Cast cards complete! (Posted 7th April 2012)

Spray mounted 6 of these :D

Under £20!!!? Im shocked to how cheap this cosplay is! Found some black fabric in my fabric box so yep! sorted!

Still waiting for the 'ralls then I'll get that done asap!

Overalls bidded (Posted 2nd April 2012)

Come on!!!!! 2 more days!!!

And the first collar is at a near complete stage. Painted the insides of the gaps to stand out more :) Gonna go into town for some PVA glue so I can varnish it and stick some velcro on.

Ill be ordering another polystyrene ring very soon so hopefully ill make a tutorial to post on DA or somewhere ^^

Just need some black fabric, zippers and bias tape and thats everything Ill need ^^

Collar (Posted 31st March 2012)

This is extremely fun actually!

After a while of both measuring and panicking (im mathematically retarded ^^;), I brought a 22cm polystyrene ring off ebay and cut it in half. I then given it 4 layers of silver paint and used manicurist tools to carve in the detail.

I plan to paint the gaps in a few days to make them more defined :)

Ill need some PVA glue soon so I can varnish the top layer and then add the velcro to the sides :)

...then start over as I promised Minatski :)

WIIIIIIIG!!!!!!! :D (Posted 11th February 2012)

Darker than pictured but I think it'll suit me better like that ^_^

It looks cute :) No doubt gonna look more androgynous than manly when this is complete XD Being so close to my natural colour my parents are actually demanding me to cut my real hair like that lol

Might neaten the sides when I get the rest of the costume mostly finishes to ensure the length of the bangs/sides look good in proportion with the collar.

Thinking of ordering the base overall and rings next week. Now I feel good with the wig I am cracking to get on with this when I am done with Gumi!

EDIT
I think im getting used to having the left side of my face covered :D Might throw in a few hair pins on the other side of my face so that side wont fall in my may and obscure my vision completely ^^

Wig ordered (Posted 25th January 2012)

Now that most of my money worries are out of the way for the time being I have just this minute ordered the wig :)

Same one as the last post :)

Think Ill go for the polystyrene rings afterall for the collar -_- *shudders* I HATE THE FEEL OF THAT STUFF 0_o

Cast card (Posted 6th August 2011)

I DONE SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE *shockhorror*

Found a screenshot of a cast card and thought I'd try to make my own for the cosplay. Plan to make at least half a dozen of these for photos. Hell, I might actually make some of these into some rather sweet! contact cards for people I meet!

Just an extra really, gonna print and mount them at a later date ^^

Created using Adobe Illustrator ^.^

HUMMINGBIRD!!! (Posted 28th May 2011)

One of my best friends plans to join me as Minatsuki!!! We already started helping her out with doodles of how her costume will be put together.
