|Probably the closest a character has ever got to my height!|
A few friends have been suspecting this for a while but goodness knows why given that I never mentioned that I'd do it. :P
Been tantalised by the videos of this outfit in battle and although I can make out a few of the details I decided it was better to wait for better references...waiting ages and they only release it a few days before a contest's deadline, rather typical!
Still need a back reference as I suspect that there's a swirly phoenix or dragon motif on the the rear half of the tails...but I should have enough to make a start.
