GFB Week 2023

In May 2023 we went to the German Fetish Ball week in Berlin. It was so much fun doing it in 2019 so I kigged at two events, the river cruise and the main ball on Saturday night, and it was a lot of fun. Before it got too busy I was able to get in some dancing on the dance floor, then watched the fashion show before heading outside for some cool river air.

It was amazing to spend time with old and new kigurumi friends!

Whitby and trains 2022

We rented a house near to Whitby so we could attend the Whitby Goth Weekend in October 2022. It was a lot of fun to be Darkness Yui. After getting lots of pics around town we went to the steam train station nearby and got some great pics with the trains.

ScotiaCon 2022 and Furry Yui

In 2019 @PeachyPig made me a furry moose Yui. A few years later I was able to show her off at Glasgow ScotiaCon 2022. It was my first fursuit convention and it was so much fun.

On the first day I wore my steampunk/gothic map dress and corset belt and took pictures of the squinty-bridge and Clyde crane. I tried being a concierge, but it’s hard when you can’t speak. The best part was meeting so many cute floofy fursuiters.

That night was the disco and wore a cute sparkly lycra outfit and holographic shoes and had a little dance.

Saturday I wore my orange-red maid outfit and had fun in the rain, inside the hotel, and in a room full of inflatable toys.

Looking forward to ScotiaCon 2023!

Yui’s 2021 review

After 2020 with no events things started happening again. I had some friends over for fun Kig times, went to MCM Birmingham Comic Con and large Christmas meet.

Yui’s 2020 Review

No events this year, but lots of fun at home. I got some new outfits including a wedding dress, and two outfits of Maya from BanG Dream! Pastel*Pallettes. I got a FurKig (a fursona transformation of Yui).

I also made some new latex outfits this year; the latex top, leggings, and apron. The patterns are available for free on my github page.

Yorkshire Cosplay Con 2019

Yorkshire Cosplay Con is one of the highlights of the year. It’s a great con; a nice size with lots to see and do, a great crowd, and accepting organisers. This year was no different and so we had a really large crowd of nearly 20 of us; with kigus attending from all over the UK, Europe, and even the USA.

We played, we took photos, we had fun, we had Spencer Wilding (of Darth Vader fame) asking to try on a kigu mask, and we even went bowling which I think is a first for UK kigus? I didn’t do so well at bowling this time, came third, but it was still great fun.

Unicorn Race 2019

Another spring weekend away with Skye. We had amazing weather, perfect for Unicorn riding!

Yui’s 2018 review

2018 marked the 2nd anniversary of my life as a kigu and was full of fun, events, and meeting lots and lots of friends:


We started the year with a long weekend latex retreat away in the country. Skye and I took over the hotel reception for a while.

Next was the local Glasgow Anime event, Raicon. I think Yui looks a bit like IF from the Hyperdimension Neptunia games so I cosplay her sometimes. For this Raicon I wore a new IF outfit taken from the Sega vs Hard Girls game.

In May me and Jade went to Anime North in Toronto. Anime North attracts a lot of kigus from around the world because as well as the convention there is a lot of off-con fun and trips organised by Neko Niko. This year we attended BBQs, bowling, and the highlight was certainly the trip to Niagra falls. Everyone was so friendly to us, I’d love to return one day.


Straight back to the UK and we were off to Yorkshire Cosplay Con in Sheffield. We’re always made to feel so welcome at this Con and so Kigus travel from around the UK to meet at it. It’s great to spend a couple of days at the Con, and during down-time spend time chatting and having fun, food, and card games with friends.

This Summer was so hot in Europe so to cool down Jade and I visited Luka in France and had a great weekend hanging around her pool. She even made me coffee like a good maid should.

Back to UK and an off-meet with Convoluted (here wearing Juniper), Jun, and Nora. We visited a Scottish castle ruins and the weather was kind to us.

At J-Con, a Derby Anime event, I danced to the tunes of Nyokee in my LED skirt. It was also the first outing for my new kig, Coconut from Nekopara, made by DAME Kigurumi. Jade wore her Maple mask and together we had lots of catgirl fun.

Back to the November Raicon in Glasgow and another outing for the Nekopara kigus along with Convoluted. Coconut got recognised so much and so many people wanted our photographs.


More latex for Halloween with my new petticoat and a 3D printed necklace.

I really love my 3D printer which I got at the start of the year. I’ve made necklaces for Halloween, Bowling, and Christmas, and buttons and other parts for my cosplay outfits. The most ambitious project was the LED skirt for my magical latex girl outfit which has 3D printed LED sleds that slide into pockets in a custom latex circle skirt.

Next up was another long latex weekend away in the country with Skye and another hotel for us to help run. I’m so happy with this chlorinated latex swing dress which BlackSheepLatex designed just for me with my input; it’s covered in cute hearts. Would you like to visit a hotel where all the staff are all Animegao Kigurumi?


And, just like that, 2018 was nearly over. Just time to fit in a weekend event with a couple of dozen European kigus in Derbyshire. Tennis Anyone?

Throughout the year I did some streaming on Ezcapechat, not quite at the 2017 level when I was on several times every week. We did manage to get in some games of Fibbage though.

We hope 2018 was good to you too.

On behalf of both myself and Jade we wish you peace and prosperity for 2019.

J-Con 2018

We went down to Derby for J-Con in August 2018. This was a really fun con. On the Friday evening I wore the Magical Latex Girl outfit with my new LED skirt and got to dance to some great live music from Nyokee.

On Saturday my new girl, Coconut from Nekopara, made her first public appearance. It was great being recognised, everyone loves a catgirl.
