I like this costume very much, but it also takes up big space to store.
I used cardboad for armor. Even thoug the amount of caluculation was much lass than the one for Karas armor, it still take up a lot of effort to construct the pattern, because I need to make smooth curve out of hard non-stretch material.
Also, I can use this costume for quick change performance.
I figured out about 70 % of people in AX2008 thought this was SessyouMaru.
I was classified as "intermediate-skilled cosplayer" in craftsmanship judgement in AX2008 Masquerade.
Also, I used this costume to the performance in Masquerade. But the wig went off, and I screwed up the performance.
I got the second place in NYAF2008 hall cosplay contest. Does that mean I am as skilled as the US representatives for WCS?
