DescriptionAs Yuuka is a summery character, costume is made entirely of cottons. It was a quick costume, done in 1.5 weeks, for AWA since my Utsuho costume fell through. Still, I was happy enough with it to post it.
Prop: The most complex part of this, a mostly handmade umbrella. Umbrella frame was cut out of a store-bought umbrella, then re-skinned with taffeta. Handle and tip were cut off to be replaced with hand-carved, stained wood. Amusingly, the wood is nothing in particular, just a carved dead branch I picked up in my back yard. Cut, sanded, and stained, but not lacquered.
Vest and skirt: "Moda Nature Cranberry" plaid fabric (for the sake of all other Yuuka cosplayers out there, this is the only plaid that is pink on red that I have seen, ever). Skirt is hemmed in cotton lace.
Shirt: Simple cotton white button-down.
Wig: Arda Wigs Jade Green, to get a mix of the yellow-green and brown that seems plant-like.
Ascot: Cotton with cotton lace.
Contacts: Rusty red contacts from the now-defunct Coastal Contacts Halloween section.
