I was asked by Paper Hearts cosplay to be in their group for the Fanime Maquerade, and even though I had a billion other things to do I agreed and I'm so glad I did! Everyone in the group was awesome and was such a pleasure to work with.
Mykasou made the armor and casted the gems and Daydreamernessa helped pattern the dress while the rest was made by me. The shoes were bought from ebay and they totally lied about the size! They are seriously 2 sizes bigger than my feet but for the most part, they worked out well. Funny story about the gem on the front of the dress: Mykasou forgot it so he had to make a new one at the hotel but since he didn't have all the right stuff to work with we ended up using an extra clear gem and adding green to the back. So the gem is green, but only when you look from the front. ^^;;
