It really looks like I'm flying! Or levitating!! So amazing *_* This shot took many, many tries to get correct, but somehow, TheBigTog was able to catch it justt perfectly so that it looks like I'm actually natural and relaxed and not freezingcoldjumpingawkwardlyafraidofbreakingthings. He's a miracle worker!
I loved Ranka's first live in Sayonara no Tsubasa. I've always been a Ranka fan, and her first live was just bursting with the most adorable things that make up our most adorable heroine. I *had* to cosplay her! Here's a (terrible quality) screenshot of her wearing this outfit: [link]
I listened to Niji Iro Kuma Kuma over and over while sewing hehe~
I'm not completely satisfied with this costume yet. I want to re-make the top, light pink part and perhaps throw a poofier petticoat under the skirt. The wings I'm wearing here I made during a very late night at Anime Boston because Jetblue told me I wasn't allowed to bring the ones I had already made onto the plane
Since I had rather limited choice in material and time, those wings weren't the best and didn't last very long
I love Ranka and can identify with her a lot though, so I had a ton of fun wearing this cosplay anyway, and I want to do her justice!
