So, I've wanted to cosplay Princess Yue for a very long time, but avoided it, knowing that I didn't look like her and couldn't pull it off. After making my Suki cosplay, however, I decided I didn't care and desperately wanted to make it anyway. I started this costume in October of '09 and didn't finish until just a few days before SacAnime in January of '10.

Here be the tale:
Lots of hand-beading. Lots of sewing on fur by hand. Ceramic sculpting. and super glue.

can't really tell in these pictures (or at all, honestly) but I also made matching moccasins to go with this costume. Let me tell you--not fun.

BTW. my sister made me a totally rad koi fish to go with this costume. If you'd like one, or would like another awesome custom plushie, visit her at www.hugablezoo.com!

In short:
The base fabric is Micro-suede
the fur is fake
the designs on the dress, shoes, gloves, and necklace were all hand-beaded by me.
The hair bobbles are ceramic
The neclace pendant was carved from wood
Wig is cosworx with amphigory extentions
(colors didn't match 100%, but it wasn't a super duper noticable)

HOLEY CRAP! A feature? Oh man, thanks so much to whoever did this!

ALSO! I was in a nickelodeon commercial in this costume along with a few other avatar cosplayers you'll recognize from this website. Check it out!
