Arisa Uotani (Yankee) - Fruits Basket




Worn on the Sunday of JAF in August. Emma (picklesofdoom) helped with the red coat and the butterfly pattern on the back (IT'S SO GORGEOUS!!!) and the surgical mask, and I wore a long black skirt under it and a white top covered in bandages to be my "yankee binding" lol!

Also got a "metal pole" actually a wooden pole painted, but because of weapon rules I didn't take it to JAF (too heavy). If I rewear Uo I'll buy a plastic pipe and paint it silver.

Its a total shame that you and Emma can't both be Arisa! But you can have Ed as Hatori if you want?? He made a decent Hatori!

HAHAHA Yeah...oddly he did! Daww...I miss that coat *cries* but I had my use out of it so it has gone on to a much better place (and to someone who'll wear it properly). Haahaha, the yankee look suits you so well and I love how you did the binded top!!!!! So cool! :3 xxxxxxxxx

Aww thanks everyone! and yeah Emma, you looked epic in the coat so I shall do it justice :3 and you think? lol I think I scared a few people. What's the kanji stand for on the sleeve? a Japanese guy read it and laughed really loudly and asked me if I was tough lol and I really want to know what it says XD James reckons it sayd "I will tear your head off and pee down your neck" :P

I like that translation!!! In truth I have absolutly no idea what it means....but its a good sign that I painted it ok if he could read it and understand what it said lmao! You shoulda asked him for a translation like "HEY! If you wanna laff at my arm then tell meh WTF this means...yeah!!! or I will tear your head off and pee down your neck!" ;)

XDD lmao :D if you got the kanji off the pic with Kyoko, Tohru and Uo then I think Natsuki Takaya said it says "furuba forever" XD

Great to see rarer Fruits Basket cosplay, you look great :)

picklesofdoom posted on 27 August, 2010 - 20:02
lol :3 Yush. The Kanjii on the arm I got from the same reference pic on your main costume page, the front of the jacket was from another pic of either Uo-Chan or Kyoko standing on her own in the black version of the jacket.

@Amy-Lou: Thankyou! Only a couple of people recognised me but I was happy nonetheless :3 @pickles: Aaah okies. So he read the kanji on the arm and I dunno what that says....hmm. Might investigate this.

I got a nude coloured top and some bandages which I'll put together at some point :) I'm a little unsure about taking the wooden pole though as the weapon rules state you can't have anything heavy, so I doubt it'll be allowed as I could quite easily hurt someone with it :( just to keep safe I'll leave the pole behind I think.

A friend of mine is kindly lending me one of her wigs for JAF :) so that's the wig sorted! Everything is pretty much done except for the bandaged top which I will start doing at some point this summer!
