Samurai Yuna, Final Fantasy X-2, 2004

This is the most involved costume I've made so far, in terms of the number of things I had to learn to do in order to complete it. I loved this costume as soon as I saw it in the game, and that Yuna is using one of Auron's old swords didn't hurt. Everything you see here was white when I started; the robe was patterned by me and ombre dyed by hand. The armor is made of styrene sheeting over craft foam, shaped over a gas flame, trimmed with cord, and laced together.

As far as props go: I made everything but the sword, which was made by Mike at Fantasy Props. I highly recommend his work, though he is swamped like you would not believe. It's made of fiberglass over foamcore, and weighs only a few pounds. I did have a helmet at one point, but I kept knocking it off with my sword because I am sooooo badass, and it broke at Anime Boston before I had a chance to have any pictures taken. Someday maybe I will make a new one. Someday maybe I will not.
