yui from sword art online

Yui from Sword Art Online

Yui (voiced by Ito Kanae and Stephanie Sheh) a supporting character in the anime series Sword Art Online. An A.I. designed to help monitor the mental health of users, Yui is adopted by Kirito and Asuna when they mistake her for a child-aged player lost in the game.  Yui has two primary costumes, a simple white dress with a bow around the middle, and a more complicated pixie-inspired outfit when she is fulfilling navigation duties in ALfheim Online.  Purchasing the pink cosplay dress can be pricey, and doesn’t come with the necessary accessories, so altering a medieval-inspired dress with an asymmetrical hem by removing the sleeves can help evoke the same look, if you’re willing to be a little crafty.  Similarly, stretchy pink bracelets can be worn to mimic Yui’s anklets.

She tries to break Denji down by causing the misfortunes in his life, but he defeats her. She gets reborn as a child called Nayuta, and in his care, she will be raised as a better person.

Princess Pride from MMBN

Princess Pride from Mega Man Battle Network

Although she takes a brief turn as a villain, Princess Pride is a passionate and kind ruler over Creamland. Voiced by Jillian Michaels in the anime, she is better suited to the role of hero and she wears the mantle well.

Princess Pride has two main costume. One is the white dress and crown from the game Mega Man Battle Network 2 and the other is the brown and cream coordinated outfit from both MMBN 5 and the anime.

For the white dress you’ll want something long with short puffed sleeves and a mermaid cut. That is a very specific cut, however, so any white mermaid cut dress and a white shrug can sub in. You’ll also need long white gloves, white tights, and white heels as well as a blonde wig and a silver crown. Jewel on her gown is best recreated with a cosmetic button and some fabric glue though you can use a pin brooch as well if you want to reuse the dress for other cosplays.

For the brown and cream look you can use the same blonde wig while swapping your crown for a brown newsboy cap. A white shirt, brown vest, white thigh highs, and dark brown boots round out most of the clothes while short white gloves act as the only accessories and body tape helps keep the socks in place. The tricky part is her shorts. They are an uncommon style but you can recreate something close to it by blousing the legs of the pants pictured above.

Yukine from Noragami

Yukine from Noragami

Yukine is Yato‘s current Regalia / Shinki, a revived spirit that transforms into a weapon at their master’s command. Under mysterious, presumably tragic circumstances, Yukine died at a young age and wandered as a soul until Yato — desperate for a new Regalia — “acquired” him. The thing is, Yukine will never age, so to Yato’s chagrin, he’ll forever have the maturity level of a middle schooler. (It’s a bit of a pot-meets-kettle situation with these two.)

Yukine’s outfits tend to consist of castoff garments (and the occasional pilfered item), such as the imitation military puffer jacket pictured below. The most affordable ones are available only on the used market, not unlike Yukine’s own. What makes it special is that there’s orange lining, but any army green jacket with a furry hoodie should do in a pinch.
