|I worn an incarnation of this costume for Ame '07, but the second version was based on the more recent manga chapters and after my wonderful roomie Xaerael asked if I wanted my sword remade.|
With two weeks before Ame '08 I (while cringing at the thought of limited time) said yeah, why not.
I had a lot of fun with this, however. SO much fun in fact, it was wonderful. The sword this time was light and durable, the mask I made came out better than I thought it would and the only thing that let me down was my cape which I'm planning to remake/tidy in time.
