Inconsistancies! (Yami Bakura)
Post By moonlight293. 19/07/10, 02:41 pm

Warning - picture heavy in the spoilers! xD

Hey everyone! After I finish my Izuru costume I will be moving onto Yami Bakura (Season 5 - with the awesome coat). However, after browsing many images of cosplayers and official images and screenshots - I have found myself in a muddle!

You see, most cosplayers go with wearing blue jeans. E.g.

This seems fine, and it was what I was going to do, until I viewed many screencaps to have a closer look at the colour:

Season 2 (same pants + tshirt):

Some doujinshi's take:

As far as I can tell - his pants are not blue at all! And if they are, it must be very very light.

Even though it looks obvious that I should go with that colour, I am mostly confused with why people decided to go with blue jeans instead.

(Culprit?)
Spoiler:
 

It just makes it very tricky to know what the pants look like officially (since anime tends to be lenient with colours) without an official picture to go from.

Any thoughts on this? What do you suggest I do?

(Also, anyone know a place where I can get his t-shirt from? ^_^ )

Do what the anime tells you to-- that is, light grey jeans.

People tend to just go with whatever colour is easiest to find, hence all the people with blue jeans. Like, one of the characters I cosplay wears dark grey jeans, and all the cosplays I've seen of him are people wearing black or dark blue jeans, so yeah. :B

I'd say go with grey jeans as well, they're easy enough to find these days and the third cosplay picture to me looks like they might be wearing grey jeans anyway.

I normally go with whatever is more appealing to the eye.

But for sure this guy is wearing some kind of grey, or really washed-out blue jeans.

I had this problem with my K-ON skirt. grey-ish blue in the anime, grey on some cosplayers, quite blue in most art and tartan in the original manga.

I don't think anyone will be too nazi about it, but I agree with going for light grey jeans.

Thanks for all the replies! Sweet, I guess that's what I'll do then! ^__^ (I am kinda nazi about my own cosplays haha xD)

@Rainbow: Yea, that's what I was going to do (paint, since I still fail at sewing atm haha) - but I was just curious if there was one in a NZ shop somewhere :3

I have no idea to be honest! Probably next year at the least, since I will have to make his coat and get an insane wig haha!
