Two souls collide.

A certain sorrow.

Description
Dream cosplay number twooo~ =)

I've wanted to do this one for a long, long time. I finally got the inspiration to start after CrystalNeko told me she was to be Hao for Midlands too. I just couldn't resist the temptation to fight her ;D

A huge, enormous thanks goes to my boyfriend Alex on this one. He stayed up til 6am on the morning of the con to finish my kwan dao, and drew my tattoo on the day, which also took about three hours. Both elements were essential to the costume, and without his help and support, I couldn't have managed it.

This is definitely one of my most favourite cosplays. Mainly because Ren is pretty much my most favourite character of all time, and to be him for the day was just amazing =)

I'm so happy I managed to do the wig *_*
