I wanted to do a costume and a character that I liked that was compleatly differnt from Izumi since she's my first cosplay character and I've been dubbed "Izumi-Sensei". 90% of the costume was thrift store put together though =\
I fell in love with the art in the Trinity blood Manga and can't WAIT for the rest of the manga and the book to be finnaly translated in april. I decided I loved the Character Abel and I wanted to do his costume. this will be my first attemp to look like an accual cosplayer, while accualy trying to act out the character in the NDK Setting. I'm Excited!
