Ooh, someone's planning on cosplaying Tea, ^^ Tell them good luck. Heh, and just curious, what con are they planning to wear it to? -Is a Yu-Gi-Oh cosplayer herself and has never seen another Yu-Gi-Oh cosplayer at a Con before though she's seen pictures of a YGO cosplayer from a Con she went to but didn't see the person at the con- Anyways, what outfit of Tea's are they planning to do? Her school uniform? The one she wears during Duelist Kingdom? Battle City? Pre-Battle City(What she wears during Dungeon Dice Monsters and then up until Battle City, when she changes into a pastel coloured outfit)? Her Egyptian one? Oo She wears a lot of different things.

I'll have to ask her on that actually.

She wants to do Tea's Battle City outfit. Any ideas anyone?

I got a lot of my stuff for my Bakura costume at Wal-Mart. But that's me though!

Hmm, let's see here -Digs up screenshots-, well, first, she'll need shorts that, when standing up with arms down at sides, will go down to her wrists, in other words, pretty short shorts Xx, and then, she'll need socks that go clear up to the beginning of the palm of her hand(where the fingers are connected to it), in other words, uberly long socks, and then, she'll need blue platform sandals(Oo) that have a strap going across the ankle and then a larger one going across the center of the foot, also she'll need one blue and one white loose hanging braclet, and for the shirt, well, maybe try modifying a cheerleader's vest pattern, and adding a collar? It has to be kinda tight though, since that's the way Tea wears it >>. That's about all the components to her outfit, other than the belt, which'll likely have to be handmade from leftover fabric from the vest type thing, if there is any ^^'. I hope I was of some help, if not, then ignore this Xx I'm not all here today, and, I've been looking at Yu-Gi-Oh screenshots all night...I'm amusing myself with the fact that Tristan gets turned into a robotic monkey later in the series. Yes, I really do not have a life.

Anyone else got advice and pictures too?
Thanks DMG!

Hey Kaine, what con is this for? I'm part of a YGO group for I-Con and Otakon, but we have no Tea. If you could post a pic here, that'd help, although DMG really has you covered!

I think she wants the cosplay for Otakon if I remember correctly.

bumping this a bit

Hey DMG, if you're going to Otakon or Katsucon, bring your deck and I'll duel you! Mwa ha ha!

02-01-2003, 12:39 PM
Psh >> I'll lose.

02-01-2003, 07:44 PM
In fact, I'll duel anyone! My deck isn't the best in the world, but I'll still duel anyone!

Ok, it's decided. If I see any Yuugiou cosplayers, they're getting challenged!

02-03-2003, 03:38 PM
Cmon guys, any other advice?

Second hand stores will be TONs of help. ^_^ Even if you don't find everything thir first time keep goin back and eventually you will find EXACTLY what you need and at a VERY low price.

That's what I did for my Bakura costume. ^__^ It took a total of 15 times but I FINALLY found the a semi-perfect striped shirt! ^___^ (it was semi perfect cuz the colour was a little off but oh well.)

I have THREE version of Bakura in my little cosplay box. ^_^ lol Go me! =p

A Battle City Tea costume shouldnt be that hard. Its just a yellow shirt/swetaer thing, and an orange mini skirt. Is that what you had in mind.

That's not her Battle City outfit. She only wears that outfit for about three episodes or so. Her Battle City one's the one I described. She wears that from after Pandora's duel to what are presently airing in Japan, which's almost for 70 episodes.
