Duel Academy Yusei by Malindachan Duel Academy Yusei by Malindachan
Secret cosplay revealed! 8D

hehe, my roomate is currently working on Schoolgirl!Aki, and I wanted to make one of the new Duel Academy uniforms too. I know Yusei isn't a student, but I think he'd look spiffy as one ^.^

Made the jacket myself. To make the emblem, I traced over a reference shot to use as a base when drawing it in photoshop, and I printed it out on fabric paper before turning it into a patch.

Button-up shirt and black pants were from Goodwill, and the red tie was from Wal-mart. I sewed bias tape down the sides and along the bottom of the pants for the white lines. Had to shorten the tie a LOT since it was so long on me originally.

Wig was styled myself ^.^
(WIP tutorial is buried in my gallery somewhere)

Costume made and worn by :iconmalindachan:

Thanks to :iconsorceresscassandra: for taking the quick shot on my camera :3

Just wondering: how many jobs can you get with a diploma in playing children's card games?

Awesome Cosplay!What did you use to make the jacket?
I'm going to be making a Schoolboy!Rua and a schoolgirl!Ruka cosplay for me and my friend. I could use some tips on the jackets, i think I get everything else.

I used a bottomweight fabric for the outside, and a thin cotton for the lining on the inside

it was a small poster insert from I think Nintendo Power (it had a small Wii and Nintendo DS logo on the bottom). A friend of a friend gave it to me XDDD

OMFG WAIT WHAT?! How did I miss this >.> DA didn't put this in my watchlist DX

AWESOME by the way the only thing I could see to give it a little more 'Yusei' flair, is a tucked in shirt looser tie and the very top of his red/back shirt peeking out from the top of the button up white. X3

(Considering the fangirl i am for the man, I've already thought about doing this ^^; )

my tie is a little loose, but I can try loosening it up a bit more next time ^.^

Tucking in the shirt was my original idea, but I need to add belt loops to the pants first (because it has none right now XDDD)

people tell me I should wear my glasses with it too, but I'm not sure if I want to or not.

TOTALLY. Yusei is a NERD. I could see him eventually needing them anyways with as much as he's on a computer. I'd wear my glasses with Yus' for certain things I have planned (my street style design in my gallery) but I broke'em again TT^TT

:iconmalindachan:
Malindachan Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
haha, glasses it is then XDDD

Oh yeah, I remember you saying that you were working on that :3

dawww. I broke my glasses only once, and it was because I got hit in the face with a vollyball (which hurt...and cut my face D: )
Got contacts after that, but I still have a pair I use when I don't have my contacts in.

thankfully my eyesight isn't that bad. the last fix job on them was pretty weak so I accidentally bumped into kiryu once and they snapped. He felt so bad. I've been thinking about Contacts but they'd have to be special for my astigmatism and I'm poor ^^;

Nicely done. is it possible to link to the reference picture you used for your emblem? It seems much simpler than the GX cosplay so I may be able to try to get that for next year

I was thinking "man what have I missed in the 16 episodes I'm behind in?! Or is it just malinda being malinda again...?" And it is ^_^ Very dashing, I was reading above how someone said they liked your pose I do as well, though somehow it reminds me of "She's The Man" Oh me... >_< XD

yeah, are dorm rooms have cold brick walls XD

actually, there are no rankings at the new Duel Academy. All the girls have burgundy uniforms, and all the boys have blue.

Serious? Aww what happened to the ra yellows then? I liked the ranking in GX. Made me happy to see a Slifer red beat an Obelisk blue every time (minus edo but he wasnt obelisk was he?)

I imagine it varies from academy to academy. The one in 5D's is not the same one from GX (that one was on an island lol XD)

Wow. More than one school? (I need to watch more YGO now I'm so old school) @______@ And here I thought only Kaiba was skilled enough to create a school where all you learn is dueling. -__- makes me wonder if I'm learning anything useful in school since strategy is so low on the list of "things you need to know."

:iconmalindachan:
Malindachan Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
well, yeah XDD
even in GX, there was more than one academy. Characters like Johan, Jim, etc were all exchange students from different duel academies.
