This costume, is one that I spent two years thinking about, and planning every detail. I went to Sakura Con 2009, where my boyfriend bought an official Yuffie action figure, which I could then use as an all around, 3 dimensional reference.
It was only the last couple months before Sakura con '11 that I got any major work done. Even though I had various bits and pieces. For this costume, if it wasn't made completely by hand, then it was heavily altered. For example, the top was a lime green sleeveless turtleneck. I cropped bleached it, dyed it, and cropped it myself.
Yuffie was a character I wanted to cosplay, specifically for the difficulty of her costume, and how little cosplay is done of her. At the time, I honestly hated the character, even though a lot of my personality traits are the same. This is because she stabbed her friends in the back, stealing their things and running away in the game. However, over time, Yuffie has grown on me, and I tolerate the character far more. After seeing her in Advent Children, all her various costumes, and thinking a little more about her character growth, I'm pretty much over my dislike.
At Sakura con 2011, I was one of 2 original Yuffie's, and my costume was a huge hit. I'm really proud of it. HOWEVER, there are pieces I'm going to remake, and improve.
