Yuuki Cross/Yuki Cross

Vampire Knight

Last Updated: 07-08-2010


Ever since I saw this series, I kind of had an affinity for Yuuki, who was strong yet terribly dense at the same time. XD Plus, my friend wanted to be Zero, so...perfect opportunity <3

The costume is bought, so I shouldn't be getting credit for it at all in terms of making it XD (I wouldn't be able to make that now with my little skill). But I will say I do like this cosplay, because if there's anything that bugs me about any Vampire Knight cosplay, it's the ACCESSORIES. For example, Cross Academy students DON'T wear Vans, or sneakers. Yuki HAS bangs. Yuki DOES wear jewelry. Her stockings are HIGH. */rant*

I'm not admitting to perfection here, either. I have already purchased a weft to make the wig longer, because the curls on the back of the wig fall into my collar constantly, making Yuuki have a bowl-cut XDD I may just make some solid black socks later too and ditch the stockings. I hope to find a nice pair of brown lace up shoes as well, but the zip-up ones where the best I could find <3

I plan to keep this cosplay alive for a while >w<
And also, if anyone reads this far and you see me in this, ask about the ironing incident XDD

EDITS:
2/14: So...found the PERFECT boots (although they're zip-up), and have dyed the wig to a darker brown. Extensions will be sewn in to make the wig thicker, but it does look a heck of a lot better already. Also! Bought the fanbook, and saw that the coat is actually made incorrectly, so am contemplating to de-seam part of the coat and remake it myself...probably will too. XD
2/22: Wig is dyed, cut, and...extensioned? XD Definitely looks better, and instead of a 30 (auburn) is now about a 4 (dark brown). It still highlights well though, so I'm happy. Realized yet ANOTHER error in jacket (thank you fanbook <3), and for some reason it's about two sizes too big on me...so it'll have to be practically redone for AX. Which is good and bad >_>ll Expect photos within the next couple weeks! <3
7/7: Wow, did a lot of things for this cosplay prior to AX. Finally fixed the coat according to the designs based on the fanbook, but cut my bangs a bit on my wig so I can see~ x3 I also made "socks", because in the manga they are not as opaque as stockings. They're made from knit, but I should have (and will) put elastic on the top so they won't slip all the time >> Other than that...OH! Bought Hazel eye contacts for the added touch, as seen in the new icon~ thanks to conpix.net for such a cool photo <3 Other than that, it's almost a perfect cosplay <3
6/1: Out of a goodness in my heart, I have decided to retire the cosplay. This cosplay is the only one I have left that is bought, and at my current weight, it is WAY too big for me. I'd like to redo the cosplay eventually and do another photoshoot with it, but for now I will let it rest eternally and enjoy the other cosplays it has led me to <3
