A JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fan has shown off their appreciation for one of Season 3’s most recognizable characters, revealing an excellent cosplay of the wildly unpredictable Yukako Yamagishi.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure made its debut back in 1987, and since then has become one of the most influential anime and mangas ever released, following the Joestar clan through its lineage, with each arc in the series focusing on a new member of the family.
Yamagishi first appeared in Diamond is Unbreakable, 11 years after the events of Stardust Crusaders. It follows the story of Josuke Higahikata, the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar as he searches for the magical bow and arrow which grants Stand powers to those who are shot by it.
In Diamond is Unbreakable, Josuke befriends Koichi Hirose, who finds himself embroiled in the world of Stand users, a visual manifestation of life energy, as he matures and becomes a significant ally to Higashikata on his journey.
Of course, Josuke couldn’t have known that his friendship with Koichi would also introduce Yamagishi into his life, a young woman who is obsessed with Hirose, and would do anything to be with him, even attempting to kidnap him at one point.
Despite all this, Yukako remains a popular character among many JoJo fans, and cosplayer ‘vampvxn’ has shown her appreciation for the character with an excellent take, bringing the Love Deluxe Stand user to life. Yamagishi’s ability allows her to freely manipulate her long dark hair, something which Paris captures perfectly.

Costest for Yukako Yamagishi from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable . . . . It was fun doing the makeup, but omg I HATE putting on lace front wigs, they’re such a PAIN!!! Next costest of hers that I do, I may add the black lines on her face to give her a more manga/comic book feel to her. But I’m not 100% yet. Cosplay was 100% hand sewn by yours truly 😀 I used a Simplicity pattern to start with and the rest was designed by me. Wig: @posewigs . . . . #yukakocosplay #yukakoyamagishi #jjba #jjbacosplay #jojosbizarreadventure #jojosbizarreadventurecosplay #jojo #seifuku #koichi #diamondisunbreakable #jjbapart4 #cosplaylover #cosplaymakeup #costest #cosplaycommunity #cosplaygirl #cosplayqueen #cosplaylove #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplayphotography #cosplayer #cosplayworld #cosplaymodel #cosplaylife
Vampyvxn also captured Yukako’s signature outfit perfectly, often seen wearing her teal school uniform, with a rose stitched onto both sleeves, with a purple handkerchief around her neck.
She even added the same socks as the character but explained that she was waiting for buckles to be delivered to finish off the shoes.

? Sweet like a chica-cherry cola! ? . . . . Ok, note number 1: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR 500 FOLLOWERS, THIS IS SO DOPE!!! :’) I CRY! Thank you all for sending such positive and encouraging messages and comments! I’m so happy that my passion makes other people happy as well! I also appreciate your feedback on what you like and what I can improve on, I encourage you all to keep sending stuff like that my way! It helps me to grow and do better! I am a firm believer in positive constructive criticism and welcome it! ? . Second note: Whenever I heard the ending credits to Part 4 of JJBA, I actually didn’t care for the song “I Want You” by Savage Garden. Eventually, it grew on me and made it to my playlist on Spotify and I had it on repeat FOREVER. It’s now one of my favorites and I love listening to it while I clean the house or just want some background music during the day while my kids play in the living room and I’m cooking or doing whatever. . Last note: the more I look at these photos, the more I want to actually take out the hem seams and do a slip-stitch throughout the skirt and sleeves of the seifuku to give it a more seamless finish. I may do that tonight while I’m watching Inuyasha haha! . . . #jjbacosplay #jjba #jjbaanime #jjbapart4 #jjbamanga #jojosbizarreadventurecosplay #jojopose #jojosbizarreadventure #jojo #yukakocosplay #yukakoyamagishi #koichihirose #koichi #koichixyukako #cosplay #cosplaylover #cosplaymakeup #cosplaycommunity #cosplaygirl #cosplaylove #cosplayqueen #costest #cosplayfun #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplaymodel #cosplaymom #cosplaybabe #cosplaylife #cosplayersofig #cosplaytest
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure remains popular to this day, with the series wrapping up the anime adaptation of Golden Wind back in July 2019.
Fans of the series can now look forward to Stone Ocean, and while there is no confirmation on when fans can expect it, it seems likely that we won’t see any more of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure until 2021.
