Burbank Library's anime fest
Anime LA 2007
Nisei Week parade 2007
possibly Dragon*Con 2007
Version 1 of the vest was made out of a t-shirt and looked/felt cheap. I used a pirate costume pattern for version 2, and I'm really happy with the result. Wig - trimmed from a Cleopatra bob. Hat - found an ok one at Venice Beach and then a much better one for $2 at Michael's. Shoes - flip flops with the extra strap sewn on.
"Most fantastical" (???) at the Burbank Library Anime event - very random but fun.
