Yoko Littner

Slightly terrified to do this, but, lets try it out x.x;; This is my second cosplay where I've made it myself. (Aside from the shoes and skull clip)

Things I already know: No slit in the shorts in the middle. I had no idea how to make this and was already having issues with just the shorts alone Any advice on how to do so would be great !

Missing pink strap on gun: It's on there now!

Chopsticks: Completely derp moment and forgot to put them in.

Left glove not as long as it should be.

Wig: Not styled (having a friend help me style it today before the con tomorrow)

Alrighty, so here's my Yoko:

Thank you ahead of time ^^;;

Tie the straps on your top just a hair longer, posing with your arms up pulls your top up more than is appropriate, you don't want a Janet Jackson moment I'm sure.

I would suggest to make the bangles thicker for they are cuff length. The ones you are wearing look thinner but otherwise, you are on track for a great cosplay! Props to your confidence in a revealing outfit as well~

Thicker cuffs, and if you're confident enough do the under boob thing. Otheriwse, you look great.

Ohhh, I didn't even notice the thicker cuffs! I was having a hard time coming up with a way of making them, haha. I will have to go find some bigger bracelets to use mold on Thank you!

Some pictures do have under boob, which is what I think Penlowe was worried about. I'm just not blessed with the largest breasts on this planet, hahaha.

Thank you, thank you! I shall invest in some bigger cuffs for sure

How about adding a plain silver belt buckle to the costume as well ^^?

Her scarf isn't always up, so maybe try taking some with the scarf down next time you shoot! Show your pretty smile! The socks need to be up just a couple inches higher and the bracelets have too many nubblies But congrats on your second cosplay!

tehkukikookie: Haha yes, my boyfriend said the same thing ^^;; I need to not feel so awkward in this cosplay. I was def hiding behind my scarf as much as I could. I bought sock glue for those darn socks, so hopefully this helps, I heard it works great nubblies has to be the best word I've ever heard xD I think I'm going to try and remake the cuffs all together, they do need to be a bit larger then what they are D: Thank you so much for your input!! <3

FunnyValentine: thank you! where as I can't take credit for them, my commissioner (I can't seem to find her on ebay now >.<;;; ) did a marvelous job for me since I absolutely suck at making boot covers.

oh as for the slit in the shorts your not gonna b able to do them with the shorts u have , they are too short....... they need to be slightly higher up so that you can cut into them w/o compromising the integrity of said shorts. however if you get a longer pair of shorts you make a slight cut the length of the slit n then fold the sides in as far as you want the slit to be n then sew them down

The only things I would recommend would be getting a silver belt buckle, adding her orange beads to the back of the swim top, and maybe a different pair of shorts (?). Like animenerd93 said, you won't be able to make the slit in those, don't be afraid to give your shorts a high waist . For a second cosplay this is looking really good! Awesome job!
