This week’s featured cosplay is this Gogo Yubari ensemble, created by Victoria “vickybunnyangel”.
For those of you who don’t recognize the character, Gogo Yubari is O-Ren Ishii’s body guard and top assassin in Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 1. Victoria wins major brownie points with me for choosing this particular character. You don’t see a lot of Tarantino cosplays but I think his characters make GREAT choices and they don’t necessarily require an intense amount of construction to execute. Gogo Yubari and O-Ren Ishii are my favorite parts of themovie, so more extra points! Also, she made the chain ball herself with a toy ball, paint and wonderflex, but I would have never guess that from the pictures!
Victoria talks about it on her blog, but one of the real hallmarks of this cosplay is that it is fairly low key. There’s no intense make-up prep or costume transport, so it works great at smaller conventions without large cosplay communities or even other costume oriented events. I think that the photography accents the entire ensemble, it is amazing how important good photography can be!
For those of you who haven’t seen the movie clip of the fight between Gogo Yubari and The Bride (Uma Thurman) from the movie, I’ve embedded it below. It’s graphic, so be warned.
