Even though I'm plenty guilty of cosplaying very popular characters, I'm nevertheless an equally big fan of many of the lesser-known NPCs. I've been wanting to take on a more unusual project for awhile, and when I looked back on Sorceress Adel's outfit, I thought she (or he?) would be perfect. The design intrigued me; I especially liked her skirt and wings, and I thought her design would be challenging, but not completely out of my league.
This is my most challenging and time-consuming project to date; over a year and the half in the making, Adel was a wonderful learning experience and I'm very proud of her.
