Sooo, this is the photo I ended up taking for this thing that’s going on about Sakisaka Io coming to the Barcelona Manga Con. I ended up wearing one of the yukatas I had horribly wrinkled up after months of neglection along with a random thingy-bingy I wrote up in a daze as I fell asleep the night before in an attempt to do something a bit creative… but it all sort of fell through when it turned out I could only submit a single photo (I had originally thought of sending a comic strip of three, the third one ending with me ungracefully sobbing over the volumes…).
And here is the cosplay that took up most of my time and effort to make and it made my day when someone actually recognized me! The Edge Chronicles is a series I began reading when I was younger and when I rediscovered it and collected all the books I was missing last year it was a tidal wave of nostalgia that I was determined to pay homage to. There are still unfinished bits but I am so happy with the work that I did on this costume and I hope to wear it again when the snow melts and I can bring someone into the woods with me to take more pictures!
