Mai Valentine Costume Guide

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, Mai Valentine, one of the most popular supporting characters, starts off as an aloof, standoffish woman who’s secretly very lonely and friendless. Upon meeting Yugi Muto and his three companions, at first she just wants to use them but soon finds that she has developed a strong respect and friendship for the gang and that she wants to be on their side. Mai might not be much of a “people person” but she’s a good person at heart and a loyal friend. If you’re an anime fan, a Mai Valentine costume is an excellent choice for any cosplay convention!
