Costume Commission: X-2 Yuna. by cupcake-rufflebutt Costume Commission: X-2 Yuna. by cupcake-rufflebutt
For a change I thought I might upload some of my previous commission products. These are bits and pieces of a costume that I commissioned for Gunner Yuna from FFX-2, coupled with a few that were made for myself. The items that were commissioned were the hood, shirt, armbands, and sideskirt. All were created for a body larger than mine, hence the poor fit in the waist and hips. The hood and lace were custom-dyed to match one another, the sideskirt is gradient-dyed [not terribly visible in this bright lighting], and the shirt was tailored to show less cleavage/provide more support. I simply tied on the yellow rope-belt for these shots, as the commissioner was to take care of fitting it more precisely upon receipt of the costume. Costume was tried on in a sanitary manner with permission of the commissioner.

Several articles seen here were created simultaneously for an original "Raver" Yuna costume for myself: The wig, hairtail, and boots. I also had made duplicate copies of the hood and sideskirt for myself. The jewelry was previously worn with my Summoner Yuna costume. The shorts were something I had laying around. Add everything together and POOF, a semi-complete Gunner Yuna cosplay! I absolutely do not pretend to have the right physique to cosplay this version of Yuna, but she is someone that I would love to tackle "for real" if I were ever to get myself more into shape. So kindly ignore my cuppycake thighs.

If interested in a commission, I do accept inquiries. Please see my website [link] for further information. At the moment I am primarily interested in working with wigs, though I will accept the occasional sewing project.

Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3

Really good job with this! :)
I'm in the middle of doing a Gunner Yuna commission too. Is so much harder to make it larger than you would for yourself. I'm having the same problems haha! :D

Thank you! The costume, in general, is pretty complex. I'm hoping to make it for myself sometime soon and am noticing many details that I missed many years back when I did this commission.

It is colloquially called a "hair tail," and yes. In-between the two games, it's been said that Yuna grew out her hair, then cut it short as a sign of independence. She wove together the ends of the hair that she cut off, making it into this rather bizarre fashion accessory.

ive seen many people wear a hair tail like that, specially people with a more "hippie" or "ethnic" kind of look.

But it still looks very nice on you! You make a very cute Yuna!!! Dont bother loosing weight just for this, you look fabulous, girl! Bones are for the dogs! Im doing my gunner Yuna this year too, at Iberanime, in March!

I suggest you do a search on Cosplay.com for information on making the hairtail. It would be a very expensive item for me to commission, due to all of the time invested.

Sorry to bother you, but what does "tried on in a sanitary manner" mean? I've been thinking about making some clothing pieces to sell and I was wondering what the appropriate manner for showing them off/trying them on for fitting would be. Thank you -Koumori

:iconcupcake-rufflebutt:
cupcake-rufflebutt Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh, I simply mean that it was tried on with undergarments and in a cleanly manner. Much like those little stickers you find in the crotch of bathing suits at the store: "Wear underwear while trying on." I've heard it through the grapevine that several cosplayers find it odd that I will try on commissioned garments and wigs, but it's hard for me not to, considering I work off of my own body for facial proportions [wigs] and basic fitting [garments]. And golly, it's not like I'm covered in mud when I do it, hahahah. So I always add in that little line about "tried on in a sanitary manner" to assuage any worries.

That answers a lot of questions, thank you so much. I've never been commissioned for anything, but whenever I make stuff for friends I always end up trying it on to see how it looks, too : ) -Koumori

Not quite, sadly. They have a rather large heel on the back of them, whereas hers are flat-soled. But I needed all of the height I could get, since I'm a bit stumpy. XD;

The hair tail took absolute ages, but it's one of my very favourite cosplay items I've made. Once I lose a little weight, I'd like to try one of Yuna's dresspheres for myself.
