So this past weekend at Northern Michigan Anime, my friend Sarah and each did our own take on the Red Mage.
I still want to fancy up the coat more, and get a better shirt, and do a million other little things to improve the costume. But I really like the way it looks with the sleeves cut off vs the previous full-sleeved versions.
It was awesomeriffic. We are now halfway there to forming The Best Party Ever.
