*hefts a sniper rifle big enough to be carried by a mech onto his shoulder, a sword slung across his back from his other shoulder, he's wearing a long black coat with red flames at the bottom, straight, shoulder-length black hair falling straight, no shirt, revealing his tanned chest and his muscles, a pair of black Kamina-style shades covering his eyes, a pair of black jeans covering his legs, and a crimson chain belt wrapped around his waist as he grins* Hey, Yoko. What's up?

Um, for the most part it's a floor-to-ceiling replica of her outfit. Everything is visually verbatim. To say nothing of the eye-catching cosplayer rocking the look, who herself looks adorably bodacious in her own right. Really the only canonical hiccup I can pick out (just from this angle) is...well, really it's not anything you can help really: the flames on the bikini top aren't pasted on in the anime; it's just a design printed in the bikini's material. That and I think the golden knobs on her gloves are the same shade as the caution stripe on her gun. But, like I said, you've basically done what any SANE person can do. As far as I'm concerned this outfit is tens across the board for accuracy. The gun is great. The hair is great. Everything I can see is looks exactly to model.
hi tahnks for your critique TTGL is an anime and not a film so it's difficult to understand if the flames are painted or sewed on the bikini >.< I prefer the sovrapposition of 2 layers For the golden part: in my first yoko version (done in 2009-> [link] i made them yellow.. But in gold are better, it depends on which picture are you watching, for example -> [link] It was my boyfriend to convince me to make them in gold color some years ago when i remake the cosplay
Your boyfriend's a lucky bastard. I salute him, and you: for your attention to detail.
Cosplayers are held to some, at time, brutal strictures to be considered "good". It's nice to see that you're taking that sort of pressure in stride while at the same time keeping yourself amenable to criticism.
