Yahoo! Auctions watch: ridiculous Final Fantasy XIII cosplay edition

How much would you pay for a pink wig?

The seller of this outfit has blocked out the model's face either because she's hideous (doubtful) or because of the inherent shame associated with being a cosplay model. Nice wig, though.

Now that FFXIII is finally here, the crazy anticipation has turned into delirious celebration. And in Japan, celebrating games means dressing up just like the characters in the game. Even when they look like this. But the scary thing isn’t the act of cosplay itself: it’s the lengths and expense to which true otaku will go to in order to achieve their aims. This auction for the outfit modelled above (model not included) has had 14 bids at the time of writing and is up to 36,000 yen (£250/$400) – it’ll probably end around the 50,000 yen mark.


If you just want Lightning’s pink wig, there’s one going here for 5,750 yen (likely higher by the time you read this). Check it out:
