Gogo Yubari (Kill Bill)

Hastily thrown-together costume for my Japanese themed birthday party in 2007. The wig would NOT behave itself (I've since read enough cosplay forums to have a vague idea of how to style a synthetic wig, but in those days I was completely clueless!) and I am wearing a vest instead of her trademark blazer... but the Gogo Ball was SO successful - I made it from a painted polystyrene ball, with various attachments (screws, duct tape, etc) and a metal chain with wooden handle. I've still got it at home (somewhere) and it's held together very nicely. Not accurate costuming, but one of my very first, so you have to look back and laugh! :)
