A rework of one of my dream cosplays built for the cosplay contest at San Japan Sinister 6. Our figuring was eight pounds of satin, 3 pound of jaquard for the sleeve interior and more than nine yards of Venitian bridal lace for edging.
The lace itself took 15 hours to hand stitch to the satin and slowly helped me develop an obsession with arthritis. Very few people recognized us but it was worth the work.
Our place in the contest can be found here at 46:27 in the footage.
And our award acceptance is here at 15:16 in the film.
Yes...I was half-way to tears on stage. This felt so amazing!
Judge's Award given for persistence to grow in our skills our personality and desire to continue to craft just for the fun.
I have never felt so honored in my life as when I received this award. This felt better than placing in any division ever could. The Judge had gotten into anime and gaming because of Chrono Trigger itself so there was a bit of bias in there, but he made it very clear as to the truth of why he chose us.
