I teamed up with a friend of mine to do some old school FF7 cosplay. She was Aeris, and I, Yuffie. Yuffie was always my favorite character because she was energetic, enthusiastic, and a very sneaky ninja. I had fun making this costume. It was very crafty.

For starters, the shoulder guard was made by paper maché-ing a balloon, then cut to shape. That took me the longest to make, with the exception of the weapon. I'm very proud to say that my woodworking father made the wooden ninja star. I think he used pine.

Like most other costumes I've made, I ran out of time, so I had to skip some details. I used a Naruto headband, and bought a pear of shorts instead of sewing them myself. The metal piece of the arm guard is missing, as well as the proper gloves, hand armor and shoes. Oh well. The costume still looked recognizable, and sometimes in the end, that's all that really matters.
