Unfulfilled Juri by ToxicStarStudio Unfulfilled Juri by ToxicStarStudio
"Believe in miracles, and they will know your feelings.

Juri Arisugawa from Revolutionary Girl Utena.

A lot of lesbians credit Haruka and Michiru from Sailor Moon for helping them realize their sexuality. Well, as much as I love Haruka and Michiru, I'm afraid they can't take credit for me. That credit belongs to Juri Arisugawa. Her tragedy touched me so deeply, that it made me realize a lot about myself.It's a long story that I won't bother making anyone listen to, but I owe a lot to Juri.

So. Here she is in her Rosebride dress, clutching her famous locket. She never actually wears a Rosebride dress during the series, so I used several doujinshi and cosplays as inspiration for the colours. I was torn between soft peach and white or orange and green. I went with peach for sever reasons. One, the orange fought with her hair too much. And two, if Juri were to wear a Rosebride dress, hers would be different from everyone else's since her situation is so different from all the other girls.

ANYWAY. This is a re-do of an old picture so if it looks familiar, that's why. I'm not too sure about the background, but I spent enough time picking at it. Over all though, I'm very happy with how this piece turned out!

Enjoy!

Juri was always my favorite character. I'm not a lesbian, but of all the characters, I identified most with her because my personal strength has always intimidated boys and left me... some unassailable tower. (laugh) I love your vision for this piece and I love how I can share a personal bond with another human being through a similar love of an under-rated character like the magnificent Juri. (Oddly enough, I used to beat the boys at fencing, too.)

Also, congratulations on the DD. :) Much deserved.
