Description
This is the 'battle' version of Rosettes outfits. I would like to wear this with NightmareWings as Azmaria... so all we need now is a Chrono.... (I can't make the May expo v_v) Hopefully I will have this finished 2011 at some point

Set in the United States during the 1920s, Chrono Crusade follows the story of Rosette Christopher, and her demon partner Chrono. As members of the Magdalene Order, they travel around the country eliminating demonic threats to society, while Rosette searches for her lost brother Joshua.

About Rosette - The impulsive, 16-year-old, protagonist of Chrono Crusade. Rosette is an elite exorcist of the Order of Magdalene and goes out on missions to destroy deadly spirits and devils. Her primary motivation is to rescue her younger brother Joshua, who has been kidnapped and later brainwashed by Aion. Because of a contract she formed with Chrono when she was 12, her life is slowly ticking away. Despite this, she continues to run towards her goal, confronting every challenge with a headstrong attitude. This conviction inspires others like Chrono and Azmaria to push forward surpassing their own limitations and personal doubt. She is almost ideally unfazed by the future she chose when she made her contract with Chrono, claiming she's still going to be "kicking and screaming 'til the very end". Despite knowing exactly who and what Chrono is, she doesn't seem the least bit afraid of him and trusts him indefinitely as her partner. Rosette is somewhat simple and prone to impulsive behavior that gets her in trouble, she claims it's because she knows she's short on time and can't afford to hesitate on things she may never live to do again and later regret. Rosette's character is significantly changed in the events of the anime, to the effect of losing many of her headstrong, optimistic qualities.

Rosette! <3 I absolutely adore this character. When do you plan on cosplaying as her? (I'm cosplaying as Chrono for May expo, so if you're there, maybe we can get some photos?).

Journal

Watch mache :) (Posted 23rd March 2011)

I have paper mache'd the watch now so I just need to coat it with some polyfiller and the rest :)

Watch (Posted 21st March 2011)

I have started making the watch, I wanted to do some prop making ^_^ The base is craft foam, then building that up I use duck tape and then paper-mache! I need to then use polyfiller to smooth it out then the painting begins. I also need to fix a chain and the watch close straps.

A photo of my progress is on the photos tab.

Sketches (Posted 1st December 2010)

Early stages, done some sketches of bits of Rosettes outfit ^_^
