FUN FACT! It's really easy to suddenly feel self-conscious when your outfit has a gaping hole in the stomach!
So this whole costume was put together in a day with an absolute minimum of sewing and purchasing. It's one of the cheapest costumes I've done to date, clocking in at a whopping $7, but I still think that it looks pretty darn good!
The "jumpsuit" is a modified leotard and pair of leggings from Goodwill and the pink wrappings all came from a couple yards of scrap fabric that I had lying around. The ears/fins are made of adhesive felt hot-glued to a headband which was then hid by Juri's head-wrap, and the only actual sewing that I did involved making the arm and leg-warmers, also out of scrap fabric.
The wig was really the most difficult part of the construction, and that's only because I had it pre-styled for my Ame-Warashi costume and, in turn, had to wash it, comb out all of the knots, and scrub out all of the hairspray! (That itself took over an hour!)
Juri's pretty ditzy, I have to admit, but I still love her and, more than anything, love Yu Yu Hakusho. This costume pretty much just feeds my seven year old obsession for the series.
