Good question indeed since I’m usually not really into Vocaloid. But Synchronicity is a great exception. Simply cause it is fantasy and has a damn good story for such few minutes… even though it is still unfinished…
Meiko was a more or less obvious choice for me xD. I simply liked her role (a tough female general who switches sides for personal reasons, strongly reminding me of Celes *cough*) or Len’s (sole protector of his sister and loving brother) best in this vid. And then I calculated that we’d rather find Len than someone who was willing to make this monster of an armour xD. Personal challenge cosplay after Erza again and perfectly in line with my first try to make armour…
Still I’m not sure if I’d choose the same again… since this ‘monster’ proved to be much more difficult than calculated. The dress was no trouble with a little help and a pattern my sister found me, the gloves weren’t either… Even the armour wasn’t not considering the collar…
I used worbla’s finest art again and bended it still warm to my skin… used spray paint and acrylic to paint it … but the real trouble started only then. The problem of fastening the whole onto my body…
After countless questions online and offline… I found a solution that only worked partly and only for this one shooting… I have to rework it for next time and I guess I won’t even then be able to move faster than in slow motion. So it will most likely never be worn at a con. But nonetheless I guess although it is far off from perfect I’m content for the present more or less. Just next time (meaning next spring with hopefully the whole group) I might use a wig, get better informed about makeup and possibly get me a better sword if money allows it. We’ll see.
What else to tell?
Besides I want to thank Gino_ (Gakupo), Sawada-Uri and Pisces-Albafica (Luka) from animexx.de . Without their help these first pictures wouldn’t have been possible at all cause they got me into this armour for the shooting and repaired the fastenings on the spot.
Oh besides: It was nice not to crossplay for a change :) In the future there are some more females on my list again too. Rather per chance picked only guys for a while.
