Ah yes. A labor of pure love.

I first encountered this costume design in 2007. It was in an issue of Cosmode on a mannequin so i didnt know anything about the character besides it was a cute design. THEN i discovered TTGL and fell in love with the series. For nearly 6 months, i contemplated cosplaying skimpy Yoko. It was such a back/forth conversation with myself that i nearly went insane because my love for her was so strong. I finally started the costume July 08. Its still not completed because i really want a rifle...

I made several bikini tops, but they mostly failed. So i brought a bikini top, but added the pvc flames. I also had several pairs of shorts before settling for these dancer shorts. The neckpiece is made of felt. The skull is made of clay. My hair sticks are actually knitting needles lol.

My boots are pure joy. I spent a very long time painting them. I got them ON SALE for $10 at Electrique Boutique. I added the zippers, which are made out of paperclay.

I plan to remake this version to hopefully go with a new rifle that i plan to commission. (I attempted it myself and it was fail) I'm hoping to use more vinyl in my newer version and also get a new wig, my current one being the Cosplay Wig version that i watched incessantly for. After remaking this version, maybe i'll get around to other Yoko costumes
