This was the first costume I've actually made from scratch, meaning a bolt of fabric and fabric patterns. I wasn't sure it was going to be done in time, and technically it wasn't, but the wig would have looked bad anyhow. It was completed in the hotel room the Thursday before AnimeExpo. My mother did 99% of the work, and I'm going to owe her forever for it.
