New cosplay: Yuri on Ice

I added a new cosplay to my costumes section! It’s Yuri from Yuri on Ice :D Unlike my usual cosplays where I try to make most of it, I ended buying most of this one, mainly because I wanted it to be a casual cosplay. I’m not sure if I’ll wear it to any conventions. I just wanted to get some photos in it!

To start with, the jacket was just bought off of an eBay seller. It was pretty cheap, and well, as a result, it feels cheap too. I’ve already had to cut several loose threads off of it, but it actually looks like Victor’s jacket at least. Instead of buying Yuri’s jacket, I thought it’d be cute to wear Victor’s instead :)

I have photos of my Pokemon Go cosplay now! I got my husband to take photos of me at a nearby pond while I acted like a back-seat-photographer the whole time ;) Here are the photos we took today. I also added them to my Pokemon Go Trainer page!

  3. The stripe on the sleeve was too wide.

And I had also made several minor sewing mistakes. Here is the new and improved jacket!
