First costume I did to be a part of a group at Anime North 2005, and the first hard core amount of work. You wouldn't think it'd take that long but there was a week before the con my friends and I were working from 8:30am to 12:00am to finish!!! I'm overall happy with how it turned out, though I might have made the skirt a little shorter to be exactly accurate, and I would get a darker blue wig for Ami's anime hair colour.
First time I made sucha good prop as well, my harp was my favourite part!
Photo is a bit weird since I'm lying on my house's carpet and my friend took it while standing on a chair haha.
