Yui-Seiryuu Priestess II by Dessi-Desu Yui-Seiryuu Priestess II by Dessi-Desu
A full body shot of my Yui cosplay. I added wire inside my scarves, instead of letting them hang limply, to try and emulate the flowing fabrics seen in Yuu Watase's art. All that useless wire from my 3-D design class came in handy!

Taken at Otakon 2010.

Wonderful cosplay! It really looks amazing.

But the wig is a little bit too long ^.~

Thank you! Yeah, I fought with the wig quite a bit because it was originally a longer wig that I had, and because of budget reasons I opted to just cut it for this costume. Unfortunately, it ended up wanting to flip out and not lay flat. Next time, I wear Yui I might see if I can get the hair more accurate.

If not, I can always just dye it brown and flip it out more, so I can have a Yuna wig XD;

Thanks! ^///^ Yui's priestess costume is one of my favorite Fushigi Yuugi costumes, so I'm happy I brought her to life XD

Thanks! I may re-wear Yui again next year. We shall see~ I really wanted to do a photo shoot by the waterpark (the thing behind me in my Velvet photos), but didn't get a chance D: I have some other photos,taken by friends. My expression are a little funny, so that's why I didn't upload them XD;

Another good trick to get the flowy design is to cut the scarf in a circle! Not as in one big circle of course, but as a swirl-thingy! If that makes sense! :P Your costume looks absolutely lovely and you're very pretty! :)

Dear Wonderful Person,

Is there any chance you may be wearing this next year for Otakon? I have a Suboshi cosplay that is dying for a Yui.

I would love to do some cosplays with other people : D With the exception of Velvet, everything has been solo x_x We shall have to keep in touch!

Definitely! I've been looking for fellow Fushigi Yuugi cosplayers (especially Seiryuu) for so long! My Suboshi is here: [link]
I need to fix up the yellow leg wraps a bit, but other than that, he's done.

Yay! The twins were such fun characters :3 I'm all for representing classic anime at cons! One of my friends would make an awesome Soi, but I don't know if she would be up for cosplaying her XD;

Better than the real thing. ;-) I never found Yui all that attractive, but I love the way this cosplay looks and the more effeminate hair. Nice job!

Dessi-Desu Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Haha, thanks! I wasn't very fond of her hair either, so I looked at some other hair styles to model my wig after that would be more flattering. I actually looked at some of Ayumi Hamasaki's old hairstyles O_o

Adding the wires to the scarves is a really nice touch! The way it flows was one of the first things that caught my eye when I looked at the photo.
