First attempt at cosplay. I got invited to the Ottawa Anime Convention, AC3, and decided that it would be an excellent opportunity to introduce myself to the world of cosplay. I love to dress up, and had a ball with this costume! Though I can't say the creation of it was so much fun, especially hand-sewing the leather water gourd. Let me just say that my fingers were like swiss cheese, and bleeding all over the place, when I finished! But I had tons of fun with it, and that's what counts.
Though I can't say that I didn't try!
