Yakumo Yukari from. Touhou Project
Daily Cosplay - (1/05/2015)
The photos were taken at the Kyoto national museum. I made the costume by my own hands, piece by piece, it took me like 6-7 weeks. The corset was the hardest to make.
Yukari Yakumo (八雲 紫 Yakumo Yukari) is a legendary youkai who is able to manipulate boundaries. She’s got Ran Yakumo serving her as shikigami. She is called the “gap youkai” (すきま妖怪 sukima youkai), although “gap youkai” is not the name of a species, as she is more of a one-of-a-kind type of youkai. Regardless of her power, Yukari appears to be the most well-informed being in Gensokyo of any kind, and usually achieves her goals through manipulating events rather than direct combat.
I’ve been making costumes for three years, non-stop. I became interested in cosplay when I just saw some people do it at random conventions so I immediately wanted to do it.
