Faye and Julia by yayacosplay Faye and Julia by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********

Today is my last day in Tokyo - I woke up way too early as usual (damn time difference!) so have some more pics! It`s raining anyway so we will have to take it easy today... :(

Anyway, this is Omi Gibson as Julia and me as Faye Valentine, Cowboy Bebop.

First of all, I`ll just say that anyone looking for boobilicious Faye will not find her here. When I changed into the costume at the Toshimaen park and the adorable cross-playing changing room girl saw me, she immediately stopped me and let me know that I was wearing too little clothing. Especially the *breasts* had to go away lol. Naturally I had to come to Japan and cosplay in something too scandalous for the public *facepalm*. Thank Goodness they were able to compromise with me and let me walk around and take photos still. I just had to cover up with the red shirt and my long overcoat and flip my collar up so there was no more cleavage.

For an American con, I will re-style the costume to have more accurate T & A. lol

Construction info: My costume was uber rushed, I made in about a day right before I left for Japan. The top and shorts were easy enough to sew but I had the hardest time hunting for boots! Seems white boots are entirely out of style at the tail end of winter/beginning of spring. I did not have time to order them online either. I ended up using a pair of old knee boots I`ve had for years and creatively turned and tucked until it looked ok. *dies*

I also had a *fun* time styling and cutting the wig in the hotel bathroom the morning of the event, where I rigged a wighead out of a towel wrapped ice bucket. LOL. The original wig I got for Faye completely sucked and did not work, so I actually bought a wig in Tokyo (Thank Goodness for cosplay shops) and cut it here. Because I had the extra blah wig, I sewed both together for extra volume so I had super big hair XD. The hairline was made using the same technique as my Carmilla hairline. I was scared it wouldn`t dry in time so I got up at 6am to make it and hit it for a long while with the hairdryer too.

It must have been incredible to meet and cosplay with Mrs. "bombshell" Omi. She is another amazing and explosive cosplay model,  two greats together is a must-see event! :happybounce: [Heart ]I think I've fainted.
