Shoukei was a long-time project. I planned her as a surprise cosplay for the JK gathering at Fanime 2012. She was made with the intention of being a masquerade "worthy" costume, and I'm very pleased with how she turned out.
The wig was easily the biggest challenge for me, as I've never done any kind of serious styling before. But, I think this was a rather successful attempt!
