|Time Taken :||15 - 20 hours|
|I'm very much Yuffie obsessed, so when I saw clips from Advent Children I immediately got excited. So excited, I made the stupid decision of cosplaying her outfit when we only had 3 seconds of her running up a steel girder in a trailer to go by! That and the fact that I decided to cosplay her about 2 weeks before Ayacon.|
As such my first attempt had the bottom half mostly the wrong colours, and the shoes were a rush job (couldn't find any like hers anywhere). I remade the costume for the following October Expo and Minamicon, with the belt and bag upgraded and accurate boots, but cant find any pictures to prove it.
I had a real hard time finding *any* grey material, and so settled for fleece. Amusingly enough, the only grey fleece they had was gradiented, so I had to buy extra amount just to use the middle part of the material! (Luckily it proved useful for a later costume!) Also, fleece + august does not mix (although I KEEP on doing this) so it was rather hot for such a non-covering costume.
My favourite part was probably painting the designs on the top, and actually wearing a recognisable costume for once!
All in all, it was a simple and fun costume to make and run around in.
