I am excited
I'm partaking in a cosplay group as Silica~ (We have a good little handful of the characters from the first season: Asuna, Kirito, Silica, Sachi, and Klein..maybe more but that's the ones we have that are at least 90% solid.) the only thing is that we won't actually debut our whole group until next AWA, which is just short of a year away. OTL I was thinking about doing it for Momocon (in March) since our Asuna was going to get her costume at Christmas, but I have found another costume I want to do then, so..maybe..
I'm also not really sure if I'll also try to be Asuna sometime in the future...I guess it decides with how my love for SAO in comparison to other series plays out.
This should be a fun costume, though..first (or second) female costume, I'm going to TRY to make her breastplate myself out of foam with the help of tutorials, and have either a big plush Pina or a moving one, depending on money and what I feel is better. I'm still super-excited for this.
