Time Taken : 2 months on and off

Aurora is an Original Character from sjbonnar's "Flight of the Valkyrie". She is designed and created by me, but sjbonnar was the one who nudged me into doing it and will take over her character development once she enters his novel ^_^

This costume was made on a very low budget as I couldn't afford spending a lot of money on cosplays this time. Nor did I have a sewing machine. So there are things I'll want to improve and add or remove if the Valkyrie Crew is to have an outing again.

First chapter of sjbonnar's Flight of the Valkyrie can be found here:
Aurora doesn't appear untill a lot later in the story though.


you didn't come to collct your prize on sunday? :(
Anyway, your costume was great, much better than the progress pictures would tell!
Congrats on the win :)

No, I and Greg had to leave before the Masquerade finished.. Had a plane to catch :( I'm a bit gutted that I could be there to experience winning something, as I haven't done that before, not something big as a Masquerade anyway. But I'm still overjoyed that we did! =D

Thank you! =D But having seen the rest of the group, there is so much I want to improve on it. This time with a sewing machine! And on a bigger budget XD

You were an amazing part of the group Beate. I loved Aurora and I can't wait to see the improvements either! I can't believe you did all of that by HAND-SEWING O_O
