|I wanted an easier costume to start making armour with, but one of a character that I loved enough to make me see it through to the end. Sakuyamon ended up being the perfect choice. Her armour is simple shapes, simple paint job and a wonderful design visually.|
I struggled with this costume. A lot. More than I thought that I would. There were times when I wanted to throw it all in the garbage and say 'forget it, i'm clearly not skilled enough for this'
But I stuck with it, tried again (and again..and again..) and eventually finished with something that, while not great, was certainly not as bad as I had been expecting.
