Yumi Ishiyama (voiced by Mirabelle Kirkland) is one of the Lyoko Warriors from the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  Yumi is a calm and athletic person, as well as Aelita Schaeffer’s best friend.  Her relationship with Ulrich Stern wavers between platonic and romantic throughout the series.  Yumi’s typical clothing is black and straightforward.  However, to recreate her original virtual costume, you’ll need to be a little creative.  By layering red leggings with brown socks and beige sports tape, you can mimic much of her outfit.  Then, you’ll need to layer a yellow obi over your dress, and wield a pair of fans to finish the look.

Franz Hopper from Code Lyoko

Franz Hopper from Code Lyoko

In Code Lyoko, he might go by Frank Hopper but this ingenious scientist’s real name is Waldo Franz Schaeffer. He has had three voice actors and one live-action actor across different seasons and incarnations of the show. In this write-up we’re taking a look at his most common cartoon appearance since it makes for an easy and comfortable costume. Best of all, all of the pieces can be used either for day to day wear or for many, many other cosplays and costumes!

All you need to copy Hopper’s outfit is a brown turtleneck, black slacks, brown shoes, and a lab coat. Add in a shaggy grey wig and some costume glasses and you’re good to go! A quick note on the glasses: If you don’t like the frames listed above or they don’t fit properly, you can snag a pair of reading glasses from a store and remove the lenses. They will probably run you between $10 and $20 and are a versatile piece to keep in your costume or cosplay collection.
