This was my first time I was making something like this - not only is it a crossplay but it was a complicated crossplay. And like the Bison jewel, the main problem was the prop itself...gah - a load of feathers, wiring and prayers to god later...

The outfit was surprisingly comfortable and actually easier to move in than my Bison one - originally done as part of a Man-oha group which didn't materialize, instead I got my friend Ichigo-chan into Nanoha who in this year did both Reinforce Zwei AND Fate Tesstarossa Harlown (FATE-O-CHAN LUV!) so I had to get it done so we could do some two shots. Finally done and was worth it in the end. The wings were a one time thing though so anyone who saw the completed cosplay at Ame will be the only time you'll see it with the wings.

Heyate! Not sure if I should say your cosplay was awesome or scary, but probably both. However I'm glad I am one of the lucky ones who got to see this with the wings and take pics.
