This was a costume I wasent originally intending to make. I always make a costume to wear for halloween. I was originaly intending to make either Kana from Inuyasha or Yukina from Yu Yu Hakusho. But when my neighbors got me the 1st and 2nd dvd boxset of this series for my birthday last year, it completely made me change my mind. This was one of my more complicated costumes because I had to figure out how to make shoulder armor that didnt require welding or wouldent hurt anyone. After lots of research and alot of forum asking I found this foam material they used to put in furniutre. So with some fabric, sewing, and velcro I was able to make my shoulder armor.
I have never actually won anything official with this costume but at NY Comic-con 2 I was 3rd runner up in the cosplay competition.
