I usually don’t show stuff off regarding my cosplays, but this is too special an occasion to pass up. t4sty-4ss-colors (my lovely Kite!) and I got an honorable mention in Zenkaikon’s hall costume contest this past weekend! I certainly wasn’t expecting anything, and we went up against some AMAZING cosplayers, but we walked away with an award that we were both proud of! I’m so, so proud of both of us for finally finishing these costumes as of Katsucon, and improving on tiny things every time we wear them. It’s so great to relive my .hack nostalgia in person, and BlackRose has been an inspiration to me for a long time now, so being able to cosplay her is a truly wonderful experience. 

To everyone who gave us feedback, thank you so much! To all those who supported and helped us during the progress and even while we were wearing these cosplays, thank you too! And to every fan who took our picture, you’re the best. <3 I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
