Made from scratch: scarf, skull clip, bikini, bracelets, belt, shorts, rifle, long sleeve
Altered from original: wig, hair sticks, gloves, boots, glasses
Unaltered at all: thigh highs
This was my first costume making from scratch, as well as my first award-winning costume at masquerades. :3 Made most of this cosplay on my own, including the rifle. I fell in love with trying to perfect this cosplay, so there is still a lot that can be made even better! I have invested a lot of time and money into it, but I am happy with it overall!
My April 2011 ACen debut of Yoko was a success!
However, I did a repremiere at RamenCon 2011, on Saturday that featured an updated bikini, shorts, styled wig, as well a Boota plushie! ^_^
Updates for SugoiCon 2011 include completely new boots and updated glasses.
Updates at KollisionCon 2011 included a Dai Gurren flag and gold contacts. Also wore this to Anime Crossroads!
Yoko was again worn at OhayoCon 2012, on account of not finishing Blue Rose in time XP
Wore it one last time to Anime World Indy 2012 before some things need to be replaced, like the shorts, scarf, and socks.
By the way, to see the rifle's electronics in action, check out this video from my Youtube account:
