15th June 2010: Yoko @ LFCC? I was planning on rewearing Harley Quinn at LFCC on the Sunday, but now I think I might wear Yoko, I tried her on again and I felt alot better wearing her now than I did at Midlands. I will retire her soon because I do believe she's overdone, this would be an awesome wear to send her off. I have got ideas in my head for other versions of Yoko, just don't know if I'll ever do them :D
15th April 2010: Photoshoot I had a photoshoot today with Hannah who is also my cousin xD
Was pretty fun but was v. quick cause it was freezin! Got some cool photos some I need to work on more cause I post process the photos myself after Hannah has took them.
I found out though bits of my costume need work on before May. One of my glove fingers has broke, one of my bracelets in broke and I need to majorly work on de-stickyfying the enamel paint on my shoes!
6th April 2010: Yoko Powah I shall be bringin Yoko to may expo im not 100% sure when I shall wear her though Saturday later on in the day possibly ahh I dunno but look out for me as Yoko sometime at May expo :D
21st February 2010: Epic It was epic being Yoko at Midlands expo, I had such an awesome time and it was doubly awesome being in the masquerade!
1st February 2010: Yoko Shoes = Grey Hair Yoko's shoes have defo been the worst part of this cosplay, I tried acrylic paint, PVA glue, pvc material, permenant marker and last but not least enamal paint. I'm sticking with the enamal paint, but of course with all these trial and errors my boots basically look... a mess! I had to sandpaper the old acrylic paint off, which sort of spread the red everywhere so now I have enamal flames and abit of red acrylic mess around them, going to have to erase the red mess with some sort of white paint.
Now im working on finishing my rifle which i also just a big mess atm, added some craft foam parts on bits to try and give it a less cartoony look, atm it just doesnt look like a realistic rifle looks like a cartoon style rifle xD My main worry is the barrel on the end which looks the messiest, because I can deattach it I may take it off and paper mache the whole barrel to even it out, I dunno only have 19 days now xD
Oh and I forgot to mention my shorts are still uncomplete xD AHH ONLY 19 DAYS *fail*
8th January 2010: New Wig Im ordering a new wig for this cosplay tomorrow my poor 51" wig cant stand two days of expo, so Im splashin the cash on another wig which will be alot more realistic to yokos hair, which means more work finding chop sticks *sigh*
My 51" red wig will be then swapped and used for the stewardess version :D
7th January 2010: Finshed..well nearly Ive finally completed 99% of my Yoko cosplay today with the delivery of my polystyrene balls which where the final pieces I needed for my Yoko bracelets.
Now I've got to either repaint or attach pvc flames onto my Yoko boots, I've tried paint before, they look wicked till you walk and it crumbles off... I covered the boot in PVA glue and this made it peel off worse :/ So pvc flames may be the way forward!
I also need to fix my rifle and measure it to make sure its not over 1.5m! The barrel at the end is wonky atm but nothing abit of duct tape can't sort out ^^

I remember spotting you around Midlands Expo!
You make an awesome Yoko 8D Really great cosplay~ ^^ The rifle is amazing!
No thanks - 15th June 2010
I do agree Yoko is getting overdone.
I hope to wear my Yoko again though when i've lost weight, just to be able to feel better about it as i wasn't exactly doing her justice with my chub, then i'll be putting her away for a while.
Can't wait to see the new pictures of yoko when you wear her again!
Inuyoku - 15th June 2010
You we're an awesome Yoko! I think I should wear her for LFCC then put her away for a long time, its a shame cause I loveeee the wig, thats why I want to wear it one last time!
