Princess Kakyuu (hime) – Manga Version

This was my first truly sewn from scratch cosplay. I had no idea what I was doing, and of course I started sewing by using 4-way stretch spandex as my first project instead of starting something simpler. It came out pretty decently!

Year: 2015
First debut: Anime Expo 2015
Time spent: 1.5 months

Although I have been cosplaying at Anime Expo for a very long time, this was a learning curve but I gained so much knowledge from this project.

I also made a corresponding Sailor Chibichibi moon cosplay for my kid this same time around.
