And reference pics are here... I opted for the reddish hair as opposed to the blonde.

Thanks in advance! This was such a hard costume for my inexperienced hands... and the first time I've EVER made props!

You did a lovely job, my sister in the sea of stars! I'm so happy you got awardage at Tekkoshocon, you deserve it for those keen props alone, let alone making the whole ensemble come together so fabulously.

I've said this to you already, but I just saw this thread and couldn't resist - just try to excuse my corniness ^_^

wow, those guns are neat. and i dig your boots.

i think it looks good!

Did you wear this to Katsu? If so, I really wanted to attack you with praise... I dig Emeraldas very, very much. ^_^
You did a really great job on the costume itself (the guns are fab!). If I had to criticize anything...

Hmm... give me a minute...

Okay, I think the skull (the big one) is supposed to be white. I could be wrong, it's hard to tell in your ref pics, but if I remember, it's white. (If you were going for a matching effect, that's fine. It looks good.)
I'm not a huge fan of the red hair... I would've opted for a strawberry blonde color, lighter than the red of the costume (how it looks in the ref pics).
Find pleather boots. I love the style of what you've got, but the tops don't match the boots. It works for now, but it might be something to look for in the future.
Don't use black for the scar. If you need to draw it on, use a brownish color.

Excellent job, though... really makes me want to make my own costume... eventually... ^_^
