Cosplayer Ambrosia > Costume of Yui Hongo from Fushigi Yuugi
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Made on the fly with leftover fabric for Tiffany's FY group. The top is the same blue cotton/poly blend I had used a thousand years ago for my Ouendan costume. I actually had to bind a little to prevent ultra-cleavage and to keep the illusion that I was a 15 year old girl (yeah right, who am I kidding?). The skirt is just satin with a blue organza overlay.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Surprisingly enough, I kind of dug FY when I was in high school. But back then I was so enchanted by anime that I loved everything I watched, no matter how bad it actually was, because it was ANIME and ANIME was just SO COOL. Now I kind of want to set the entire cast on fire, but I always liked Yui and sympathized with her because I thought she kinda got the shit end of the deal. But she did luck out and get the better Priestess robes, so I thought "what the hell, I'll make that". Big thanks to Twilitesea for lending me the wig!
