About this Costume
Construction Details:
I've had my eye on this design of Yuuko's for a very long time. It was another intensive fabric painting project and there was a lot of pressure on me to emulate CLAMP's art style for the clouds. I'm very happy with the way the clouds turned out.

The most difficult accomplishment for me was the wig and all it's extensions and accessories. I've never done a hairstyle like that before, nor have I tried attaching so many things to a wig XD. Since the wig I used as a base didn't have a lot of hair for stubbing, I made a tube core out of wonderflex and used that as my stub. The rest of Yuuko's protruding hairstyle is made from wefts that were holded onto craft foam to hold it's shape.

Personal Thoughts:
Yuuko is awesome. Why wouldn't I want an excuse to be an elegant and mysterious woman who also happens to be an alcoholic?
