    so according to her anyone with a homemade cosplay is poor. Someone go tell yaya han and kamui that their costumes look cheap. Lol Has she forgotten that some people know how to sew? Lots of handmade cosplays look better than store bought costumes, and many cosplayers spent over $1000 just on materials. Homemade costumes aren't necessarily cheaper than store bought. There are also loads of people making gorgeous props and armor as well. Kamui is a good example  of that.

    That certainly would have made it a different video. Imagine am old farmer carrying a shotgun and yelling "get off my property!" while chasing splenda off the farm. All the while yumi is screaming like a banshee. When splenda gets back in the car all she can talk about is how brave he is. What I'd like to know is how does splenda not know what cotton looks like? I'm also from the south and I pass cotton fields regularly while traveling. I thought splenda grew up in/near Atlanta. Didn't yumi say the dentist he took her to was his childhood dentist? He should know what cotton looks like. He should also know that tresspassing is illegal. Googling cotton bales would have been faster and easier and not illegal. He def risked getting a gun pointed at him though, if not actually getting shot at.

    It's possible but I don't think so. Splenda said the roommates' names near the end: Chris, Miracle and Alex. I'm pretty sure he said Miracle. The yt automatic subs said Miracle. I guess that can be a name. He also said Nathan invited them. Whether he meant Nathan is the person who invited yumi to be a guest at the con or the person who invited them to stay at an airbnb idk. If anyone's interested he says this stuff in the last five minutes or so of the video. They also show what the airbnb looked like at the beginning. While re watching to catch the names I noticed at the beginning while splenda is filming the two of them at the airbnb getting ready to leave for the con yumi can't stop looking at herself in the view finder. Lol. Splenda's talking and she stops paying attention to look at herself and then does a little dance thing. Please someone gif this.

    lol. So accurate. She really is like a 6th grader who just found anime and wants to make their own cosplays. I feel like she is partially that dumb. She has book smarts and does decently at school with help and hard work, but she's lacking in both social skills and common sense. This combined with her purposeful bad English and childish mannerisms makes her seem a bit off. I think there might be some mental illness as well. 
    I can't watch her apology video on hooktube. Someone's paranoid. As others have said, old spice is responsible for his cat. Cats are like kids. They're their owners responsibility, and pet owners should learn to say no when people like yumi want to do stuff with their pets. Personally I tell everyone my cat bites and that makes 90% of people stay away from him, but there's always that one person who insists on petting him. 
    In order not to double post I'm just going to edit my previous post. I watched her  con video, and I hope you guys aren't tired of my video summaries because here's another one. The video was blocked on hooktube so I watched it incognito so yt wouldn't recommend her vids so there's a play button on the middle of every screen shot. Sorry! I'm on mobile so I can't spoiler so this is going to be long. The video isn't in chronological order. It starts with her sitting at home talking about the con. 
    This is her outfit on the 2nd day. She says she likes it better than yesterday's outfit because she looks better with black hair. Splenda says she's always beautiful. Omg those eyebrows. You can see where she shaves them. And that little bang braid thing has me dying. 

    This is her 1st day outfit. I think this hairstyle flatters her face more. She doesn't look like the moon emoji. From a distance the coord looks okay. She didn't show any close up shots of the outfit. I think seeing nice looking lolitas in China might have helped her figure out her coords are awful.
    She had both her lolita and hanfu wardrobes there both days. I thought from her previous video she'd do one one day and the other the next day. PEOPLE ACTUALLY TRIED ON THE CLOTHES, YOU GUYS. AND THE WIGS!!!! I only skipped around the video so I only saw 2 people trying her stuff on. Idk if there were more, but I feel like if it was popular she would brag about it so I'm thinking they were the only ones. I added captions to some pics because her captions were covered up by the bar on the bottom of the video. They say the same thing. I hope it's okay to leave people's faces. Yumi didn't edit them out in her video. That typo...

    The first half of the video shows people coming to get booth to talk to her and her walking around with splenda talking to some of the artists who also have booths. They were good to include the names of the artists. Splenda makes fun of yumi for not knowing about doctor who and keeps calling her sweetie. 
    A small child is better at sewing than yumi. Surprise surprise. 
    She talks about the cosplay contest and shows clips of people walking across the stage. She says nothing about being a judge or having anything to do with the contest. The contest looked very small with some people in very simple costumes with very little sewing and some in very elaborate cosplays. There were lots of kids as well. I'm thinking it might not have been a real craftsmanship contest. Idk though. After the contest all participants gather on stage, including yumi. She pulls the little girl from earlier to sit next to her. 
    She shows several fans being excited to meet her, but most people don't seem to know who she is. 
    Driving home they pass a cotton field. Splenda isn't sure what it is and yumi wants to know so splenda tresspasses while yumi is flipping out saying it's like a horror movie. He confirms it's raw cotton. Dude, you live in Atlanta. Like you haven't seen cotton before. A commenter mentions they could have gotten shot for tresspassing on a farm. 
    Do their videos have to end like this. They talk about the airbnb they stayed at. They had roommates who left early. ROOMATES!?!? Tell me more. Are they friends? Unlucky strangers? What? I want to know.

    I thought I'd post a video on bathing a cat. (Especially since yumi lurks.) Treating a cat gently and appropriately is not rocket science. As a side note, cats' claws have a nerve running through them so it's important to never over clip cats' claws. How about you do a video on how to properly pet a cat, yumi? Since I think it's obvious you don't know squat about cats. It can be educational for you and your dumb viewers.

    How stupid do you have to be to wash a cat with old spice? Cat shampoos exist for a reason. It'd take less than five minutes to google how to wash a cat. Cat wipes and unscented baby wipes are an easier way to clean a cat. Regular baths aren't really necessary unless they get covered in dirt or poop or they have fleas. Some people should not be allowed to have pets. Please never get a cat yumi.  poor cat.

    I buy art at cons occasionally and most artists just give you a business card along with the print. I've never gotten a certificate of authenticity. Sure, people steal art, but it's mostly an online issue. A business card and a signature are enough to prove authenticity. And, ya know, buying it from the person in the photo. I don't know of any person who's pretending to be yumi and selling her pictures online or in person. Yumi's barely making any money off of her stuff. Why would someone pretend to be her and sell it?

    sounds like she's saying traditional Chinese clothing is a costume to me. (I know it's a qipao and not a hanfu, but still.) I  took a screenshot of the title just in case she changes it. 
    Can we talk about her profile pic on youtube?  My phone didn't even recognize it as a face. (A but ot, but is the yumi discord worth joining? I've been too lazy to make an account, but if there's good tea to be had I'll do it.)

    I've been to kimono panels at cons before. I think it's more about showing different sides to Japan's culture. I don't think most anime con goers care about China or ancient Chinese clothing so it seems out of place and more like a costume. I think there's at least one con that focuses on East Asian culture rather than just anime. I think a hanfu display would work better there.

    I forgot to mention it earlier, but she's also bringing 2 pairs of lolita shoes. Wow! So much variety for the con goers to try! But really, they're both in her size. How well does she think this is going to go? I feel likes there's a good chance someone's going to get lice or a fungal foot infection, and yumi will wear the clothing and wigs without washing them and get it herself.  The lack of common sense is almost impressive. Did splenda not tell her it was a bad idea?

    was going to say the same thing. I'm tired of male anime fans thinking shounen is better than shoujo and that girls who like shoujo aren't real anime fans. Excuse me for watching anime geared towards my demographic, just like Joey watches anime geared towards his demographic: creepy pedos.

    She posted all her wedding videos months after she filmed them, creating a false time line. I wonder if she would do the same if she got pregnant. On one hand I feel like she couldn't keep it a secret for very long, but on the other she waited months to post her wedding video. It would prob be best to wait awhile to post online that she is pregnant after finding out just in case she has a miscarriage, but she might milk that too.

    I always thought she was smiling lopsidedly because she thought it was cute. I hadn't considered it was because of her jaw. I watched some of her videos and looked at some pictures, and she doesn't always talk/smile lopsidedly. I didn't see her giving her signature lopsided smile in the videos I watched, but she tends to talk with her lips angled to one side. Idk how to even do that. It reminds me a bit of the one witch from hocus pocus. I made a collage of her talking with her lips angled to her right and one of her smiling normally. Her ig photos seem to all be her smiling normally. I think she might be doing it to seem cute or coy.

    I'm so weirded out. Who wants to try on dresses dozens of other people have worn? And most of those are cheap bodyline dresses. It reminds me a bit of those old Western photo places where you put on old western style clothing and get your picture taken. Those places have clothing that just ties in the back so lots of people can wear it. What's she gonna do when a plus size person comes along? I don't think the idea is bad, but it's unhygienic and she doesn't have a large enough selection. I would never let random people wear my lolita dresses, even my cheap bodyline ones.

    Yeah, I meant if she physically needed her jaw fixed for medical reasons it would probably be only a few thousand. If it's cosmetic it would be tens of thousands. No insurance is going to pay for something of they can find a way to weasel out of it. Yay America! I doubt splenda wants to drop that much cash on an elective surgery and clearly their patreon isn't going to pay for it.  I am a little surprised she isn't making videos of just regular dentist and doctor visits. It seems like something she'd milk for that youtube money. I'd go for a video of her getting a flu shot.
