|I was so determined not to give in to more Bleach/Naruto cosplays, but when the Espada appeared I knew I'd end up giving in.|
I originally debuted Stark when he hadn't been officially named in the manga, with only two very brief frames and a website description noting him as Espada 1, so planning out the costume was hellish.
In the finish it turned out amazingly well, and matched how he looks in action! (Lucky)
The easiest part ended up being the bone collar, which is made of ultra-lightweigh clay, and looks exactly like bone in person.
