I can somewhat understand this misconseption, though. Those who only know the character from looks alone would probably think his name was Jr. since it's plastered on his forehead and all. XD

I just laughed. She was asking for it for not wearing a wig, and her hair being dyed red. XD

I'm going to Anime Detour this year (first time) and want to cosplay Yusuke or Koenma, probably Yusuke since I have the body and hair for it, so I won't need a wig or anything. 5'7" and 140 pounds, hope to be 145 by the con, about 10% body fat. Sound about right?

I've never done cosplay or sewed much, but I'm willing to learn. For simplicity's sake and also because it's my favorite costume, I'm thinking of doing Yusuke's dark tournament outfit. Do any of you have advice on where I can buy those pants, or if it would be easy enough to make, how to make them? I'm good enough with a sewing machine to hem pants at the moment, but I could learn to do whatever if it's necessary.

Also for the shirt, should I cut off a T-shirt or would that not look right?

They're veeeery easy to make. Basically grab any pajama pants pattern (Simplicity has very cheap ones) and just extend the waistline up a bit. For the top, for an easy pattern just grab an old shirt, cut off the sleeves, then dissect it to use as a makeshift pattern.

Really your best bet is to go check out your fabric department and see what looks best for you and your budget. I know I kind of cheaped out on fabric, and it definitely showed in my costume, so I can't give any personal advice. But ideally you'll want to look at a heavy cotton or twill.

I second with what HeeHee said.
You have to keep in mind he's fighting in a martial arts tournament when he's wearing that outfit, so that's a clue of what kind of fabrics to look for. From what I know all martial arts clothes are made from a heavy cotton.

I would say, go for a type of cotton. :3 For his yellow shirt, you're looking at a matte, thick-ish fabric, like fighting gi :3 Hope this helps >_>;

NO SATIN. PLEASE. D8

People who use shiny fabric in YYH should be pretty much shot, there are minor exceptions, but very few. They're fighting, and generally fighting clothes are not shiny.

Seeing how I love this series to death.

It's almost unheard of to do YYH cosplay anymore (At least to the cons I go to.)

But lately I've been seeing YYH groups springing up at various cons so I'm holding onto that small glimer of hope that YYH will have at least a somewhat comeback. XD

Anyone else game for YYH cosplay? Even if you've done it in the past please share your awesomeness. I've done both Hiei and Kurama. I do a new Kurama outfit every year. I'm grateful I have a lot of stuff to choose from. (Thank you official art XD)

Happy posting~
My Cousin went as Yusuke in 2006 and no one had any idea who he was. And he had a Kurama with him...But he loved hugging Laura Bailey as Yusuke, LOL!

Startin' a new discussion question! Anyone done any outfits from the art alone? I went and took some shots with Yuusuke about a week ago-- and YYH is really an anime that allows those casual outfits.
