Mushroom Hunting. by cupcake-rufflebutt Mushroom Hunting. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Miles [captainmiles] as Spike Spiegel and myself as Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Photo taken by Al [Eurobeat King] at A-Kon 2009. Faye is, hands down, my favourite female anime character. For years I've put off making her yellow outfit because of personal insecurities, but I've lately found myself subscribing to a new philosophy: "I've wanted to do this outfit for 5 years. If I put it off for ANOTHER 5 years, I'll be 30. Just do the damn outfit!" And so, despite feeling like a hippo in a yellow thong, I survived cosplaying "Yellow Faye." All aspects of the costume were handmade except for the jacket, which was a lucky find at Goodwill. Miles' Spike was incredibly last minute. It was literally pulled together in a matter of 3.5 hours from a gargantuan women's suit, a few scraps of fabric, and a wig that I had luckily purchased but not styled last summer. I truly wish we had taken a "before" picture, because the suit was laughably enormous on him. ^__^; I'm hoping to find time to make him a suit from scratch before Otakon. Slight photoshopping because Faye should not have bags under her eyes from slaving over costumes for weeks and weeks, and because I like stark contrasts and grung effects when it comes to Bebop. Many thanks to Al for giving an early "sneak peak" at his A-Kon pictures!

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

That WAS a pretty funny episode. Especially when Spike thought he was climbing an endless flight of stairs and he was only stepping on one. :D

Hawt hawt hawt! ;D You look just like her, lil lady. I'm especially impressed by the "yellow" part; what fabric did you use?

Thank you! I made the costume from some stretch taffeta that I randomly happened upon in the clearance bin at Joanns. I've never seen a fabric quite like it, and my online searches have come up dry. I wish I could find more of it, because it was absolute heaven to work with!

Thank you! I've come a LONG way with wigs, and I'm very happy that I've been able to improve so much over the years.
