I thought a gathering of cosplayers (and fans, of course!) from the works by Arina Tanemura would be fun! She has created many beautiful manga, including:
Full Moon wo Sagashite
(my personal favorite!)
The Gentlemen's Alliance Cross
Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne
Sakura Hime Kaden: The Legend of Princess Sakura
Time Stranger Kyoko
and many others!
For AX 2013, I'm putting together my Sakura cosplay (hime version) from the manga Sakura Hime Kaden: The Legend of Princess Sakura
. I'm looking forward to wearing a junihitoe, and it was fun making the hiogi fan to go with the cosplay. The dear Giyari will be cosplaying as Aoba if all goes well, so x2 the excitement!
Please let me know if you'd like to have a gathering.
Hope to see other fans and cosplayers of Arina Tanemura's gorgeous anime and manga at AX 2013!
