One of my favourite costumes, but was pretty uncomfortable to wear. The shoulderpads got seriously cracked in transit from Dragoncon, so the costume has been retired and donated to a friend for remaking.
Our skit was hilarious; I dressed a male friend up as Merle from Escaflowne and made it a Celebrity Anime Deathmatch. I chased him around the stage to the Mortal Kombat theme, then ripped the head off a Merle dummy I made. It was fun. ^_^
