Yu-Gi-Oh!: Pharaoh Atem / Yami no Yugi

yu-gi-oh! cosplay - yami no yugi The nameless pharaoh’s spirit who resides in Mutou Yugi’s body, Atem, more commonly known as “Yami no Yugi” or “Yami” for short, often appears in Yugi’s Duel Monsters battles, either to help him, or to completely take on the battle.

In ancient times, the young pharaoh sealed the dark magic of the Shadow Games with his own name and soul into the Millennium Puzzle. Yugi’s grandfather found this artifact and Yugi took eight years before he finally solved the puzzle, unlocking the Shadow Games, and Pharaoh Atem’s soul. The pharaoh resides in Yugi’s body, somewhat similar to the reincarnation of Egyptian Priest Seto as Kaiba.

Interesting hair. I wonder how much hair cement was used on that wig? It can’t be the cosplayer’s real hair, can it?


  1. wow I like it! His hair should be a little more bigger than here,but its really good!<3

  2. No.. I saw a closeup of the same cosplayer... it looks like it's her real hair. Which is just mindblowing.

  3. Could be this blogs best writing I have ever seen.

  4. Well, wig or real hair, getting that hairstyle is still very hard to do either way! :D
