I am so proud of this costume! At first I was worried about wearing such a revealing costume but once I wore it for the first time I realized how comfortable I was wearing it. I had so much fun as Yoko during Anime Expo and I can't wait to do it again at Otakon but this time with my rifle which is currently in progress! Here are the base materials I used...
- A red, mid back length wig I had put into a pony-tail and stubbed
- Red extensions I made into wefts and caulked to a styrofoam ball
- A styrofoam ball I had hollowed out and attached wefts to for the pony-tail before applying caulk inside and caulking to the stub of the base wig.

- White acrylic paint
- Black acrylic paint
- A nifty little metal hair clip that was very much like a big bobby pin. Bought at Safeway.
