Costume Information

Adore her!!!

Peoples opinion on this is so mixed!!
I also know some Cosplayers have been quiet stereotyped over cosplaying this but please don't put me into any catagory, im in it for my love for cosplay not to bully or 'troll' people!! Thank you ^_^

At first, i was confused what it was about and thought the storyline was naff and random, but when i got further i started to love the interaction the characters have. Sure the art isn't good and the writing was a bit annoying but wow...

I never knew i could have so much love for a character on a WebComic.

I took a picture of you on Sunday, I only realised who you were when I left after you saying you dressed as Zelda on the Saturday! Can you please apologise to your Rose friend for me? I did want to take her picture too but I think she misheard me! :(
