About Yang Xiao Long Costume

One of the major differences that Yang has with the other members of the team RWBY is her choice of weapons. All three are wielding weapons that have some blade in them, while Yang’s is a pair of dual shot gauntlets. But it is a fit weapon for her, as she likes to fight barehanded.  She uses the explosive shots of the gauntlet and combines it with her fists, making her suitable for close or mid-range combat.

Her cosplay outfit, regardless of the version you choose, is also a good fit for her fighting style. As you can see from the cosplay photos, Yang’s appearance makes for a great photoshoot of good looking female characters that are great at hand-to-hand combat. Her stylish outfit, combined with the gauntlet weapon presents a heroine that can be aggressive and fierce but still good looking and fashionable.

For this cosplay set, you will be getting Neo’s original full costume, which is a white jacket that has a pink designed shirt inside, black gloves, and brown pants. You will also be getting a white boot that has a black design on the heels and tip. She also wears a brown corset underneath the jacket. For the accessories, you will be getting a long wig that is half pink and half brown, representing Neo’s unique hair, and an umbrella, which is her choice of weapon.

The set also comes with the Beacon Academy uniform, which is a black coat with white linings, a red lace tied in a ribbon at the neck, a black vest, and a red skirt with several lines to form a checkered-like design.

About Neo Costume

Neo is just one of the antagonists in the RWBY series, but she became popular because of her unique appearance, which is themed after the Neopolitan ice cream. This theme is the basis for Neo’s unique appearance, as she sports the colors brown, pink, and white. This theme can be seen on the character’s outfit, as well as on the color of her hair. Now, you might think that an anime character that uses three different colors for her appearance might be difficult to achieve and won’t look good.

But, as you can see from the cosplay photos, Neo’s unique appearance is not that hard to achieve, if you have the right items for it, like what is included in this cosplay set. Her unique appearance also didn’t take the beauty and stylish look of RWBY characters, as Neo is just as fashionable and beautiful looking like a lot of the female characters in the series.
