From when I was a little girl I have always looked up to Rufio. When I first saw him skate into Hook my mind went crazy. From that moment I knew I wanted to learn to skateboard and one day get a mohawk just like him. I never thought I would be capable of making this costume.
It felt so fantastic to be one of my idols for the day. I loved running around with my sword and hearing people yell "Rufio, Rufio, Ru-Fi-OOOOO" at me. When I ran into another rad Rufio cosplayer it was awesome to know that someone else loves Dante Basco as much as me.
I am super happy with how my costume worked out. The wig was not perfect but I am really proud of what I was able to accomplish. It took hours of work and a heck of a lot of hairspray but it was all worth it. It was so cold on the day that it doubled as a beanie and kept my head warm as well.
I really want to thank you all for your support during the making of this costume, and the lovely feedback. It means so much to me that you enjoy the costumes I make because I sure like making them. The next ones I am hoping to make are Bee and Puppycat, Tina from Bob's Burgers and Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China. So stay tuned.
