Macha is my favorite character in the .hack//sign series.
She keeps Tsukasa company, and helps to protect him, like when his little guardian attacks him.
I enjoyed making this costume, the event I first wore it to, I got there about two hours into the fest, because I was finishing it up.. o3o;
The colors for her outfit are insanely hard. In almost every screen shot they're different hues of browns/ greens/ teals/ etc.
I decent to darken the star around the left eye so it'd show up better. Eheh.
The hat was my first time making one such as that, such a pain, so many needles holding it in place, so many pricks to the fingers.
All worth it though!
