BACK TO THE BLACK MOON'S ANIME EXPO PAGE

This fan came dressed as the wise Suzaku Seishi, Chichiri, from the Fushigi Yuugi anime and manga series. Though this woman is dressed as a male character... she pulls the whole thing off wonderfully because she's got heart! I must say... her costume was perfect in every detail, from her outrageous electric blue wig to her marvelous staff of wood and brass. The creator of the Fushigi Yuugi series, Ms. Watase Yu, attended Anime Expo 2001 as a special guest. At Ms. Watase's panel many dozens of people showed up in full costume!
