Fushigi Yuugi- Street Fighter by twinfools Fushigi Yuugi- Street Fighter by twinfools
In the 5th grade I went looking for Digimon pictures on the internet and I came across an anime website called "Lelola" ( owned by a girl named Pan-Chan. For years this was my anime hub. The anime she reviewed and had little subsections on introduced me to anime in general. Gundam Wing Ouran High School Host Club, Naruto, Weiss Kreuz, Yu-Gi-Oh, CardCaptors, DN Angel and Fushigi Yuugi to name a few. She also did a section on cosplay, which was pretty much my first insight into cosplay and cons, and it is because of her review of Anime North that I went onto Youtube looking for videos of cons and cosplay videos.

Last year, I found a comment complimenting my Naruto cosplay from Pan-Chan from her account. I couldn't believe it, things had come full circle.

A few months ago i went back to Lelola and saw that it had been shut down, the archive is still there though, and boy is it nostalgic. For my cosplay of Tamahome, I went back to the archive and read his character biography on the site. Even without seeing mucn Fushigi Yuugi, I know so much about it thanks to Lelola.

Thanks Pan-Chan!

you know, i keep coming back to your tamahome pictures over the years, because i grew up watching it and love it to pieces. you doing a fushigi yuugi cosplay made me so happy because, now a days, with a new wave of anime fans coming in, few people have heard of it compared to in the past. its sad, really. i'm also glad you did early tamahome back before he lost his ponytail, and his great personality along with is. seriously, thank you.

Blue-haired-Tamahome! XD

It's always funny to me seeing Tamahome cosplayers since they all have different colored wigs (since Tama's hair ranges from navy blue to green in the anime). When I heard you were doing FY I was curious to see which color you'd pick XD

Looks great!... We need a pic of you trying to throw Tasuki/Yuna in the water XDDDD

I looked at a handful of references and decided that it was a slate color, so a blue/black mix wig seemed to be the best choice XD Wish I'd had more time to look into wigs for Tama tho D: ah well, will see how it looks with a little more styled :D

(and that pic has already been taken at Fanime ;) XD)

I... Tamahome? Oh god you're awesome. You make me want to cosplay from Fushigi Yuugi as well.

Thank you!!! ^___^
I want to improv my wig for this cosplay (there's only so much you can do when you're initial styling technique fails in the hotel room and you have 5 minutes before leaving for the con XD)

Aww man. I wish I had more time and money to do more costumes. I already cut 4 costumes from my lineup this year ;~;

Well hey, you did a pretty good job in the short time you had. I bet the next one will be even better than. I mean, you can only learn and improve.
