Oh. My. Gosh. Where to start with this?!

Monkey and I sort of half-decided to do something for the Hyper Japan competition at Amecon, spent the next month arguing about what to do, and eventually found this gorgeous image from the manga and went THIS IS CLEARLY IT.

Then we drowned in a lot of gold satin and velvet, and never wanted to see pearl buttons again.

Then there was Hyper Japan, and the Rigoletto skit which mostly involved dancing about and pulling faces.

Then we won it?!

We were incredibly surprised and so, so, so happy, so thank you sooo much to the judges and to everyone who liked our costumes - it must have been such a hard decision because everyone in the competition looked AMAZING.


This looks amazing and very beautiful! Great work!
