Hi :heart:
This is my latest costume.
I began in 2009 my Cover girl from Wild flower, the second art book from talentued Shunya Yamashita.

This costume wasn't very easy because it's a cut plan of the high of the girl, I should create the under design for the armors, the sword and the back.
The difficulty was to create something in the Shunya's design from myself <_<
And yes, it was very hard to elaborate something in his style.

The sword was a challenge with the fine details on it.I spend long months of work.

The painting was hard too because I wanted to create relief, not only a " black costume", so i used black, grey and purples tones.
The wig was a cut and assembly of two ( my wig from rathian monster hunter and a blue for Rei Ayanami).I create shading in purple and light blue, and the little flowers in foam ( creamousse in french).
The beads are from an old jewel in plastic.

I was surprise by the result last day. The contrast between colors, the result of armors... it was a big big surprise for me.
I was ( and it is very rare) happy of myself.

The most beautiful thing was the prize I won, I was sure it will be my friend in his freaking skull knight, when I eared my name I just can\'t believe it, I won a sewing machine, I was so happy I though I just cry u____u
My own sewing machine was cheap and burned around the light.
So, I feel so happy, it was like a dream!

I really enjoy Shunya Yamashita, I was very happy to do this costume, I like the colors, the feminine aspect of the armor... I spend a great time with all my friends, so thank you very much >o<
it's the best christmas gift I can received!

Thank you for the kind comment thank to that I recognize you! You were judge of ECG! I was in the audience this day :3 *watch* for that sword it was a bit complicated because the illustration is cut, I draw and create myself the bottom sword design ( and character armor) it was difficult because of the particular Shunya's style.I wanted something close to his perception but yes, I am not Shunya... I spend a long time for drawing all the stuff ^^

That's so cool! The ECG was really amazing :3 I love to see people finishing off designs that were incomplete! Good job at that :D <3 I added you to my watch :3

Yes, it was the most beautiful show I saw *_* I was happy to be in audience instead of on stage as usual ^^ it is another kind of pleasure when you assist to people passion during an event. Wild flower was my first " creation" on uncomplete design... now I do a little shunya and I create the bottom of the rod because it is uncomplete too xD ahah thank you for the watch back <3 will you come to next Japan expo?

I was also glad for be judging instead of on stage :3 hehee, no pressure XD

I might be there, depends if my friends win to go to the ECG I might go as their helper :3 It all depends on how much money I have .__.

It is fun to judge, even sometimes the choice is difficult. For ECG I am selected for finals, it was a big surprise...but it is okay, we aren't under pressure it is just a funny hobby.It is strange to be a part of ECG but I am impatient to meet cosplayers from Europe ^^ it will be great! Hope you can go next year :) ( and I am agree, money... ;_; the must important thing for projects... )
