Costume Information

I first made this costume in 2011, and in 2015 it was still being upgraded. I wore it to the Katsucon Cosplay Ball (2015), which was one of the most magical cosplay events I've ever attended.

So beautiful. I can't begin to imagine how long the beading took.

This was my favourite costume from that expo, beautiful work with all the beading and so floaty. I can't wait to see it finished!

You should pop the progress shots in the journal so they're not lost when you load on finished photos, they're really interesting :D
