Ahhhhhhhhh!!! I HAS EXCITING NEWS!!! I won Judge's Choice at AnimeNEXT with Ouka!
Agh, I'm so happy! I've entered only a couple times before at cons, primarily because I get so nervous whenever I enter contests. But this was my first win! Ouka's my current baby in terms of costumes, so this makes me so happy. Agh! I legit have kind of been walking on air ever since.
So to celebrate a bit, here's a new shot of her from my shoot with
(unfortunately I didn't do any shoots at ANext due to time constraints). But overall it was so much fun and I really had a lot of fun.
The gown was made completely by me with the wings commissioned by
for our Masquerade skit together at Katsucon 2013. I also styled the wig and made all of Ouka's accessories.
I choose this photo because it's really reflecting my own feelings right now. (Also, it's cute! Which is not something I'm used to doing but I think I actually might have pulled it off here, lol). Many thanks to my friends that helped me get into this costume once there and to the Hall Costume Judges (especially Josh because this was his choice!). Thank you so much!!!
Anyway, I hope you like it!
