Regal Flower by benihimecosplay Regal Flower by benihimecosplay
guh! LOVE THIS PHOTO! I chose this one to upload first because I look so regal in this - and that's the look i was going for.

This costume was the HARDEST i've undertaken! I learned so many things on this costume, and I'll be fixing quite a few things before wearing it again at Tokyo in Tulsa this year.

Character: Hana from Gate 7
Cosplay: me!
Photographer: fallingfeathers.net
Anime Matsuri 2012

I won sparklepipsi's judges award :) The competition was really tough this year - and I was very blessed to win!

other than the fact that the kimonos were hot, no actually! I was more worried about stepping on a few things but more comfortable than tomoyo :)

gate 7 is pretty flippin awesome. If you love japanese folklore, it's a great manga to read (and yeah it's a manga from CLAMP, no anime yet). thank you very much!

You're welcome ^^
CLAMP tends to have really good manga (is judging from Tsubasa and Cardcaptor Sakura on this)...hm, I think I'll try and check it out.
