♥ Gasai Yuno Cosplay Review [Photo Heavy!]



Hello!!

I will be reviewing a gift my boyfriend got for me :)))))
LOL THIS SOUNDS SO RUDE but I'd just like to be helpful for those looking for a Yuno Cosplay!

Gasai Yuno Cosplay

App for the filter is BeautyCam !

This item was purchased from Taobao, and rumor has spread that ordering from Taobao is extremely difficult, but that's not the case at all. To order from Taobao, a middleman is necessary since most sellers prefer not to sell outside of the country. The middleman will order your item (don't forget to specify EVERYTHING. It won't be the middleman's fault but yours), and the item(s) will be shipped to their factory. From there, they will ship the parcel to wherever you live (most likely via DHL). 
The only downside is that the middlemen can be kind of expensive, especially if you are ordering items that are heavy. Purchasing from Taobao will only be useful if you are buying a haul.

Anyhoo, let's get to the review!

My Gasai Yuno cosplay can be purchased here (click).

My cosplay came with a wig, the school uniform, a bow for the uniform, little bows for the wig, socks, fake cell phone, and fake blood. There were knives and axes available for purchase. You could just buy the uniform separately (which I recommend, you will find out later in the review).

Here are some pictures!

Cellphone, Uniform, Wig


Uniform (top, skirt, bows, and socks)


Cell phone and wig (free wig cap)

There was also a small container of fake blood!

The cell phone was purchased from a different seller. (click)

Let's start with the uniform!


Thank you for dealing with the wrinkles and yellow lighting! I lent someone my iron ;w;
The material is cotton polyester mix, and there is virtually no sheer-ness at all.


The details on the back are quite accurate.




More close up pictures.

The white and gold details are made of a more plasticky and shiny material.

This was size XL due to my height (170cm ;-;)


It's so difficult to take pictures of pleated skirts--



There's a little zipper and a clasp!



Adding elastic to cosplay skirts seem to have become more prevalent? There's also elastic in my Kuriyama Mirai cosplay.
Then again, both skirts are covered by the top.

Here is the entire set on me!


The XL was really big!!
This is not really a problem to me since I know how to sew and touch up clothes.

The shirt was loose and the waist part of the skirt was too wide.

The material also prevents the usual ventilation, so I don't suggest wearing this out in the Summer to a meet or something.

Although it took awhile for the item to arrive to me, the middle man received the item within a week. And from there, DHL took about 7-9 days (Sorry I forgot!! T T)

*drumrolls*

Overall:
Quality: 9/10
Shipping: 10/10
Comfort: 8/10
Size: 7/10

I really wish some cosplays accommodated for taller people, because I could wear a Medium, but the skirt would be too short on me due to my height.

Next is the Wig!

The wig was purchased with the uniform from the same seller.


As you can see, the wig was incredibly shiny, and the pink was a bit lighter? (Sorry, yellow lighting doesn't help)


Side by Side Comparison

Yuno's hair should be pinker and not neon-peachy like the wig I received.

I also looked up on how to reduce the shine in synthetic wigs, and so I soaked my wig in a baking soda - water solution. and left it alone for 6 hours.

Sadly, it did not change anything, and I was left with a shiny wig.

My head is on the larger side, so this wig was rather uncomfortable on me after 3-4 hrs wear.

Overall:
Quality: 4/10
Shipping: 10/10
Comfort: 6/10
Size: 6/10

Cellphone!



As you can see, the buttons were poorly painted. I will be going over the buttons with my own metallic acrylic paint.

There's paper glued to the phone that has Yuno's diary entries I'm assuming.


The back was pretty good.

Overall, the phone was quite heavy, which is good in my opinion. Lighter things are most usually flimsier than heavy things.
Sadly, the phone was not flippable, which was very disappointing :<
It was probably for the best, because I would've broke it by flipping it too much.

Overall:
Quality: 7/10
Shipping: 10/10
Comfort: 10/10
Size: 10/10


Thank you so much for reading my review!



Be sure to come back for my next one!
