Yakko Warner at RCCC
This is actually the second time I’ve posted about a Yakko Warner cosplay, and I think this one takes the cake!
Brady Danger Gage creates amazing costumes. This Yakko Warner was created for the 2016 Rose City Comic Con in Oregon. Brady also made Wakko and Dot Warner costumes as well, AND he created costumes for those costumes: Batman for Yakko, Superman for Wakko, and Wonder Woman for dear little Dot. They were surprises for the awesome Keith Tucker, based on his own artwork.
And if you click here, you’ll be able to watch a short video of Rob Paulsen, talented voice-over artist and the voice of Yakko, meeting the Animaniac in real life.
From a practical point of view, if you’ve ever thought about making a mascot-type foam head for a costume, you might want to check out Brady’s Facebook page. He’s got a series of pictures that show how to stack the foam, how to start sketching on the faces, and how to wrap it in fabric. It’s a good tutorial.
