Shampoo and Mousse - 'Ranma' by yayacosplay Shampoo and Mousse - 'Ranma' by yayacosplay

I read the Ranma 1/2 mangas when I was like 13 years old! This is and will always be one of my most loved series. Shampoo is my favorite and I wanted to cosplay her for ages. Finally my friends and I were able to organize a group at Anime Expo 2008 so I chose this cute red outfit to make, keeping the July heat in mind.

Reference for the costume [link]

I chose a red brocade for the main dress and lined it with a lavender poly blend. The butterfly is embroidered on, and the sash is made out of silk essence. The frog closures are fully functional. This was a super easy costume to put together and I had the most fun with the wig. I did totally burn my leg with hot glue while making the hair balls. :( I added some flowers to the wig since Shampoo often wears them in the series. The shoes and sword were bought.

The Mousse with me is Shaun, one of the coolest guys I know!

I really do like your cosplay and you pulled it off obviously.

Still one last link.

This person here put ALL of chapters titles to Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2, and Inuyasha.

Also if you want to read her other short stories like My Sweet Sunday on [link] where Rumiko tells the reader how she got into manga then its all here to read and at [link].

You are fantastic at putting your costumed together, but you also have a fantastic figure. With those two combined, you make the most awsome Shampoo. I love the wig, it looks so natural despite de colour ^^
