So far, I've done:
And warning, this post is IMAGE HEAVY.
Asuna Yuuki Sword Art Online
It seemed that fate in itself did not want me to go to Fantasy Quest 2, my actual plan for that event was "Esther Blanchette" in her Queen outfit. But the friend we bought wigs from had disappeared due to depression. And I ended up changing my plans despite already having the costume in progress.
Sword art online before the fandom
I started reading the novel a month before the series was launched, and because of this-- a lot of people were surprised to already see an Asuna Yuuki cosplay. Am pretty sure I really didn't do her well, but I always plan to improve. During the process of making the costume, I had quite the constrained budget. (As I've spent a LOT on the previous cancelled cosplan already) And even the wig I got did not make it on time. SO I had to style another wig the night before the event itself. XD
I at some point, wanted to give up. But I didn't want to spoil such a great event and we don't get many chances to shoot at a venue like that. So push comes to shove, I had to pull through no matter what I had to do.
Asuna Yuuki from Alfheim Online
No spoilers don't worry. Anyway, I've tried several processing types for this cosplay depending on what message/pose and am projecting. Although I should really learn to 'copy' the overall look of an anime.
Anyway! This is by far, my most favorite Character for this year. I seriously hope to find another character as awesome or even moreso next year! Thank you ABEC and Mr. Kawahara Reki.
Sword Art Online or ソードアート・オンライン
is a Japanese light novel series by Reki Kawahara, with illustrations by Abec.
I haven't heard of "Abec" but the style doesn't stun as much as Guilty Crown does. I don't know much about this. But I've been pretty much spoiled by Aizen-Sama.
Am hoping for a lot actually. Animation, battle themes and effects that are well integrated. Seeing that this was a light novel before, it would be assumed (though assuming is a bad habit) that it's rather well written and that the plot would actually carry it.
Loving the theme, and seriously craving to cosplay both protagonists.
