ON YOUTUBE: Fanime 2002 skit
Ever since I first saw the character designs for FFX, I LOVED them. But Yuna was my favorite due the colors and slightly japanese influence to her design.
The skirt is painted with Jaquard fabric paints, which worked very well, but becuase of the texture of the fabric, was extremely time consuming. After studying the designs, I decided to make the pattern match up both when the pleats were open AND when they were closed.
The Obi is painted with Jaquard paints. All the patterns are pretty accurate to the Yuna figure, but I added a bit more color difference cuase I thought it was fun. some of the extra embellishments are done with puffpaint and fabric markers. The pink flower is super sculpey, as are some of the beads on the costume.
The sleeves are dyed with Rit Dye. I got my hair cut to match Yuna’s.
The staff, which you can only see in a few photos due to Fanime weapons policies… is a dowel hand wrapped (and glued) with fabric strips. The ball at the end was purchased from a craft store, canabalized (it originally had wire all over it) and then painted to look like Yuna’s staff.
