YGO: Yami Yugi by RadClawedRaid YGO: Yami Yugi by RadClawedRaid
Character: Yami Yugi
Series: Yu-Gi-Oh!
Cosplayer: RadClawedRaid
Photography and Edits: Riot Arms / *newti

Another dream cosplay done! Yami Yugi was my favourite since childhood. So happy I got to do this and I had a group too! Group pics will be up soon ! :D

Also, a massive thank you to ~Malindachan as without her tutorial I would never have been able to attempt this wig XD but I'm pretty happy/proud with the outcome! It was a great challenge and turned out not as overwhelming as I had expected :D

Had a few issues with the upload - sorry if this has popped up a few times! ^/////^

You look so amazing! :D I'm about to start my own wig. Oh and a question for you. Did you use real chain for the Millennium Puzzle? If so was it heavy?

Thankyou! Good luck on starting your wig!

I used plastic chain links, like these: wescoireland.com/wp-content/up…
and just taped the openings together before painting.

It wasn't heavy at all as the chain is plastic and the puzzle is foam and cardboard ^_^

Wow. Kudos on the wig, it's always the hardest part and the one most cosplayers fail at. And generally your cosplay is amazing. Your body fits his body type perfectly, you pull off the leather pants REALLY well and your accessories are very well done. Excellent. Congats!

Thanks so much for all your kind words!!

But yes the wig was definitely the hardest part.  After doing this though, I give kudos to anyone who has made one anyway, it's incredibly hard - I can't take credit for the amazing genius behind this wig as I simply followed a tutorial (linked in description).   :D

Thanks! I cheated and bought the pants this time around, I'd used my pleather on Lenalee and couldn't find more at the fabric stores in time XDD  but thank you so much for everything :)

You're most welcome. It was the honest truth. If I had a penny for every failed Yami Yugi cosplay I see XD, and most times it's because of the wig. But you did great in everything. You should do more YGO cosplay. You should do Kaiba and Bakura. I think you'll rock Bakura XD

More weird hair XD.  I am starting to see a pattern here ;P. Just kidding. I am not a fan of 5D's but I am waiting to see your cosplay of Yusei cause he's actually a pretty cool character :D

:iconradclawedraid:
RadClawedRaid Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2013
Haha yeah, well I'd been putting him off cos I didn't want to do his wig yet... and therefore Yami was pushed back even more.. then the group I was doing it with was like "we're doing YGO this day!" so I was like... shiiiitt... and got in doing Yugi's wig XDDD so now I won't have a problem making Yusei's! LOL.

I haven't seen all of 5Ds, but it's pretty cool.  Cheesy as, but it's awesome haha.

Yup, Yugi is the crown prince of weird hair, although I must say... wtf were they thinking when they designed that Zexal kid's hair? O_O. Lol, Yusei is cool though :D. Unfortunately we don't get much chance for cosplaying around here so I've never had the chance to serious cosplay characters and make stuff like you guys do, but if I did, Yami Yugi and Kaiba would be my first choices XD

RadClawedRaid Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013
Haha true true! Every YGO series has at least one insanely ridonk hair style XDDD

Ohh, don't you? :c damn! We don't have that many cons here in Sydney/Aus really, so I just do photoshoots for the most part XDDD  to pump out more costumes.  But nice first choices!! :P Can't go wrong with them!!  Always awesome ^_^

I must say, your wig is utterly amazing and your costume itself is spot on. Really love the trousers and the fact you made his coat cape!

You're very welcome. =)

I want to eventually cosplay Yami but I'm scared to do the tutorial xD; My yami marik wig is insane enough and thats just with glue and a hair dryer XD;;

The coat is awesome! Totally made the outfit :D

Haha it's a pretty intense wig.  If you follow :iconmalindachan:'s tutorial, it'll be much easier!  It's still a pain in the butt in parts, but that tutorial is very easy to follow and explains how to do it all.  Also stiffened felt under the spikes is where they get their fullness/stability :D

Yeah I've seen two fantastic tutorials that make me want to try but as I don't have much money I'm scared that I'll mess up the wig and then there goes all that money v.v

For now I'll just be happy with my Yami Marik xD;

Ah yeah, Yugi's wig can be quite expensive...  Mine cost a fair bit more than I was hoping.  But I ordered everything from Arda-Wigs, first time using the site - definitely worth it!! The quality is beyond amazing! :D  (but half of the cost was shipping, because US to Aus always costs a bit).

But yay! :)  good luck if you do ever decide to try Yugi's wig!! :D

Julesie Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah Yugi's would cost the same as my Yami Marik. I also got it from Arda-wigs and also my first time ordering. I also brought hair extensions. The wig is fantastic but it cost me over 100 because I was hit by customs as well as paying the original fees. =/ That's why I can't afford Yugi to mess it up. x.x

Thank you. I definitely plan to do Yami in the future but for now I'm working on Seto Kaiba :D

Haha sounds about right!!!
Yugi cost me over $100AUD (I never usually spend more than $30 on a wig LOL) and I was so terrified I would stuff it up, because I couldn't afford to buy the stuff again!! >___<  but it all worked out ^_^  the tutorial is super easy to follow and is a great help, for when you do end up making it ! :D

Seto is cool though, but of an ass - but at least he has a sane hair style LOLOL.

You look great! :hug:
