Because he's adorable.

Really adorable.

And I relate to him so well - all of his self confidence issues, and his worries for his worth as a hero, and... just... ;A; I get you, Ivan! <3

Plus, I get to photobomb EVERYONE.

You really do suit Ivan so much! The wig test is great and I think you've done very well with the jacket cos if I know myself, I'll be frustrated and end up cutting it into confetti XD

To-Do List



.Jacket Progress/Test Shot Revamp. (Posted 4th April 2012)

Okay, so the jacket is nearing completion; I just need to add the white panels on the other side, paint the back, and add the collar and cuffs~

...it sounds like quite a bit of work, when written down, but hopefully it wont be so bad xD lol

Also going to be re-taking test shots tomorrow! So have deleted the old ones, as I've restyled the wig since and feel much better about the cosplay 8D GOOD TIMES! <3
