Suigintou from Rozen Maiden. I love how creepy she can be but also how much she really wanted to help her medium, that and she just wants to prove that to don't have to be perfect. I'm planning on doing two wing variations. A small pair of wings for inside and a big pair for outside. I also made her sword. The hardest part was working with a material that had 0 stretch, it made making the bodice really awkward, but it was the best looking alternative to velvet. I hate the feel of velvet so much. The easiest part was the sword, even though i never used the expanding foam and papier mashe method before. I learn't how to use a ruffler foot and that i really need a mannequin.
