Known as Anzu Mazaki in the Japanese version of Yu-Gi-Oh!, in the U.S. she is Téa Gardner and is a long time friend of Yugi Muto. If you’re looking for an easy cosplay solution, Téa Gardner is a great option. Following this costume guide, you can pull off her simple look and achieve cosplay success.
Begin with a Women’s Performance Collection Shirt and a pair of Juniors Stretchy Jean Shorts cinched with a Canvas Web Belt. Dress in Women’s Knee Thigh High Socks worn with a pair of Women’s Original Universal Sandals. Add the essential Cuff Leather Bangle accessory.
Any experienced cosplayer keeps a list of quick and easy characters to replicate for last minute conventions. Your shortlist should include Téa Gardner. Some, if not all pieces, are probably already in your closet. Start with a sleeveless collared shirt in pale mint green over a fitted pair of high-waisted denim shorts. Pair these with thigh length stockings and some t-strap open toed heels.
This is just one option for Téa’s look. You can also go for her more cultured look by pairing a pink blazer with a large blue neck bow and miniskirt. Exchange the thigh highs for knee socks and loafers. For group cosplay, you should include other Yu-Gi-Oh! characters like Yugi Muto, Astral, or Adrian Gecko.

The definition of a good friend, Téa is strong willed and supportive of those in her circle. In the beginning of the series, she is known for her spunky attitude and hoyden behavior. She later evolves into a more carefree character known for doing anything to help a friend. She stands up for what she believes in and becomes the understanding voice of common sense amongst her set.
Known to have a crush on Yugi, she is easily made jealous and initially misunderstands his friendships with other females. This sometimes results in tempestuous outbursts to show her displeasure. Téa loves and values her friends, but this doesn’t stop her from taking on a motherly role and correcting their behavior when they step out of line. She often threatens her male friends by saying she will get more female friends to replace them when they misbehave. Téa also loves dancing and hopes to be a dancer when she grows up.
