Description
A new friend I made at the last Expo suggested I'd make a good Yuffie because of my happy-go-lucky nature amongst other things. So I thought I'd give her a go in time for spring.

It was really great being Yuffie! Everyone accused me of stealing materia (and generally being bad); despite initially thinking that no one would recognise me, "Yuffiee!" was being shouted at me first thing on Saturday morning and I received many hugs! No idea how I managed to tie in wearing this cosplay at the best weekend of the year weather-wise...! (even though I got a tiny bit burnt on my shoulders and back 'cause I forgot to put sunscreen on >.>)

Didn't have any problems that massively hindered the outfit as it was so simple, but looking back I think I could have done with styling my wig. However I couldn't remember if it was heat resistant or not so I thought it best to leave it as it's also my Jade wig. The usual strong gusty wind aroound the ExCel bent my shuriken a bit, but that was always going to happen since it's cardboard. Next time 'round I'll probably use foamboard.

I think I underestimated the fishnet armsbands as even with the Staysput glue on my arms they just didn't want to stay! So I'll remember for next time always to allow more than less. My boot covers didn't last, mainly because of the way they were kept together (poppers) so I thik next time I'll use zips like with my bro's Vincent boot covers. I also realise the top isn't accurate at all, but I just thought it was too revealing for me :/ So opted for a more FFVII one.

I met some absolutely wicked+lovely Final Fantasy cosplayers when going round with Vincent (1337Pete) + Cid (cosplaymatt1), in particular the Yuffie who did the 'arm slug' and all who didn't mind me asking questions about how she made aspects of it- so big thanks to her.

Cheers to everyone else who shouted after me, took my photo, & stopped to chat or just for a hug (:

Planning on making Yuffie's original FFVII outfit over the summer to masquerade it at October Expo '12.

Journal

Belt (Posted 13th February 2012)

Excuse the rubbish picture haha

Cid (cosplaymatt1) has lent me a hand-me-down belt of his that I might use for Yuffie, and mum alerted me to another blue belt we apparently have! So at least I have two options.

I think I've changed my plan of how to make the bandana tails at the back; they seem to "fly" when she walks so maybe foam isn't the right thing to use?

Gonna hopefully go out shopping with Cid at some point this week to look for what we need (:

Lets go......SHAWPING! (Posted 8th February 2012)

I'm going to brave the cold snap & try picking up some stuff for Yuffie today. Fingers crossed I can find what I need!

UPDATE Didn't find anything :( Though our Cid (cosplaymatt1) is going into town to look for stuff for his costume, so I've asked him if he could look out for stuff for moi :D Let's hope he has better luck than I did this morning.

UPDATE Cid didn't find anything either ._. But I asked my bffl [literally] if she has any pale yellow short shorts & she does! So thas one thing ticked off the list- hope its the right size :)
