"Ichihara Yuko (壱原侑子, Ichihara Yuko) is a fictional character from the manga, xxxHOLiC, created by the manga team Clamp. Yūko, an enigmatic, powerful and fashionable sorceress, is one of the principal characters in xxxHOLiC and a very important person in the storyline of Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle. She is known by many names throughout the multi-verse, most notably as "The Dimension Witch" — a title that reflects her unique reach in time and space. She has also been called The Far Eastern Witch as one of her aliases. However, she also claims that her name, "Yūko Ichihara", is just an adopted name, meaning her true name is unknown."
About the Cosplay:
I've used white cotton for the kimono and I've painted on it in water colour [not one of my best ideas lol but the effect is beautiful!] I'm very pleased with how it came out tho I am incredibly tempted to remake this costume at sometpoint as my skills have come a long way since I made this!
I represented XxxHolic at The Kita Fan Choice Awards for best manga 08/09 and won (though not really winning xD) a trophy! I'd only recently started reading xxxholic and I love Yuko (she reminded me of me minus my chubbiness lol. I chose this kimono because it's beautiful and I love the way her kimono becomes part the pond!
