Summoner Yuna from Final Fantasy X (FFX)
Yuna's my favorite character in FFX, and I really identify with her. There was a point in my life where I was continueing a path that I chose for myself, even though it was not what I wanted anymore. Her character helped guide me through that time.
Tutorial: How to Make Yuna
Wig ($14) - Ebay seller supermallchi99. I also curled it, and left it under the sun for a while on a cup so that the heat would mold the shape. The wig was not as thick as the ebay picture though, so I had to glue on wefts. I had found these $1 wefts in the thrift store from earlier. The wefts gave my wig that extra bounce.
Costume ($70) - Etsy seller GoodVibesAndCosplay. I bought a partially-completed costume from a cosplayer. I had to repaint the dress and take in the whole costume so that it would fit me.
Dress ($10) - I bought white and pink fabric paint and repainted all the stars on the skirt. I also added a button to it.
Hibiscus - I cut out the shape of the hibiscus with craft foam, drew out details in pencil, mod podged, then painted. I sealed it with mod podge and floor wax.
Mesh - I used mesh from a previous project to stiffen the obi.
Top ($15) - I redid Yuna's top twice, with different fabrics. I ended up going with a stretchy white fabric (swimmer's wear, apparently) in the shape of a rectangle.
Bracelet ($3) - I bought a pearl necklace from Vegas.
Necklace ($7) - Ebay seller ufo8cat.
Earring and Hibiscus beads ($10) - Etsy seller cosplaycloset.
Blue tassels ($5) - Etsy seller ShiShisBoutique. I didn't like the tassels that came with my earring/bead order, so I ordered some from here.
Ring ($15) - Ebay seller another_me_store.
Staff ($25) - I bought paint and gesso to make the staff. Detailed tutorial on staff here. The tassel was $5 from Joann's.
Contacts - I reused my contacts from my Ranma and Sakura cosplay.
Total Cost: $174
