Description
I love this outfit so much...my favourite one for Joey I think...but I was unsure about doing it but I have had so many problems with my other Joey that I wanted to give this one a try...I just want to be Joey for one day and for it to look okay ^_^

- Decided to wear this to Kita IV with Pandora as my Mai -

I still love this outfit, it's simple yet effective...and that icon is making me giggle. I really need to watch more Yu-Gi-Oh! again.

@messengercat I'm glad you like the icon, as soon as I saw the picture I just knew I had to make it my icon lol You do need to watch Yu-Gi-Oh again, it's an awesome show.

@Pandora Thanks for the advice and I knew that was going to be my ref as soon as I put this up lol Any picture of Joey is funny...he is just that type of character.

@Tif I would love to have pictures with your Mai...I just hope this works out better than my other Joey lol

I had only thought about doing this until I saw yours and I wanted to give it a shot ^_^
YES! I have a Mai for pictures...photos are going to be awesome...and we will have to try and find/steal a Kaiba for more pictures. Thank you for the kind words too, but I'm happy that I will have someone to have pictures with, as my boyfriend is normally the photographer so this chance doesn't come up often.

You have no idea how happy that makes me to think I inspired someone with my version of Joey!! *hugs* -^^- Joey I thought was really good choice to make cos I was going to back to basics with his and still learnt something ^^ It's great u chose it!! And I assure u, you'll always have a Mai for photo as long we attend the same con XD If all goes well with Kita, I shall be seeing u there but wish I could meet u sooner!! and your boyfriend as the photographer -^^- this is a rare chance indeed :) x

No problem, your outfits are amazing and are so beautiful. I agree with you, Joey is a simple one to do but you still train skills and the outcome is great ^_^ We have to attend more cons together, it will be so cool. I wish I could meet you sooner also, wish I was going to Oct Expo as I was going to go but things came up. Speaking of Kita, I am looking forward to it so much. need to sort out my room at the Hilton as I want to stay there this time ^_^

Journal

All Together (Posted 26th January 2012)

Finally got it sorted and completed
Things are not 100% in the picture as some of my hair was still showing and the binding needed to be a little tighter but I am happy with this one...looking forward to the photo shoot at Kita ^_^

Finished ^_^ (Posted 26th January 2012)

I only have to finish the painting on my shoes and Joey is complete...the wig looks okay and it's the best I can do due to Joey's hair being a bit crazy lol

I am hoping to get some pictures up to show what this looks like...I'm glad that one of my outfits for Kita has been completed. Looking forward to pictures with Pandora as my Mai ^_^

Trousers (Posted 29th November 2011)

I have found my trousers...I have been staying with my nan and she said I could have a pair of trousers/jeans if I wanted them. I looked at them and thought 'no way, I won't wear them.' But then I saw the colour of them and they looked perfect for Joey ^_^ I just tried them on and they are great for this. I believe Joey is about 80% complete overall now...I will get some pictures up next week, but I just had to say that trousers have been obtained ^_^

Top 95% done (Posted 26th October 2011)

I spent most of yesterday getting the top done for this...and I am proud of how it looks. There are still some alterations that needs to be done as some things are not straight or needs cut but overall I love it.

The trousers are a bit dark but I just put them there to see how it would look as a whole and I love it. I cannot wait until this is 100% complete. Being Joey is going to be awesome ^_^

Starting (Posted 25th October 2011)

This is getting started now...I'm about 80% complete with the top now...I have trousers that will do for now, even though I feel they are too dark but I will see how they look when the top is done.

I needed some more trainers too as my other ones were falling apart, but they are going to need a paint before they become Joey's but at the moment I'm loving this cosplay...it looks so good at the moment
