Cosplay Feature #2 – Jaden/Judai


I’m going to start this feature out by talking about one of the animes that I’ve loved for ages. That show would be Yu-Gi-Oh. I have almost all the seasons on DVD and I just seriously love it. I liked GX, and 5Ds (two spin offs, the older spin offs) and then it got a little out of hand with Arc-V and whatever else spin-offs they are planning. But, the original and the next two spin offs/sequels were the bomb diggity. 
This costume is Jaden/Judai from Yu-Gi-Oh GX. I’m the one in red with the crazy hair. Jaden was such a fun character to cosplay, he is wacky, super lame, and hilarious. It made doing shoots really exciting, because I got to do things like use my duel disk as a guitar. 

I re-did the jacket once from the first time I re-made it. While I haven’t worn it since 2011, which was the year I debuted the costume, I haven’t REALLY put it in retirement yet. I still have all the parts (minus the shoes, which were terribly made on my part) I will never really retire any of my Yu-Gi-Oh related cosplays in all honesty.

  • I am so glad we became blogging friends! I am a huge anime nerd, too. Right now, I'm actually binge watching with my husband our favorite season of Bleach! (Thank goodness the baby is already asleep!) I used to watch Yu-Gi-Oh, too, but only the first or second season. I also used to collect the cards and play the game (non-competitively) in junior and high school!

  • I still have a few decks that I made in college. I used to play with my friends at Panera during lunch hahah! I love Yu-gi-oh so much!! I watched all of Bleach too! I loved the Arrancar arc!
