Wow, its always interesting to see stuff I did years ago. Right now its 2013 and looking back on 2004 brings forth many good memories. Like cosplaying for the first time in my life.
The costume I wear on the pictures is inspired by the stage outfit Gackt wore during his "Sixth Day & Seventh Night" Tour I happend to see live twice in Japan. While attending the concert I saw Japanese Cosplayers for the first time in my life and I was like: "Wow, thats cool! I want to do this too!" and I was told that its called "Cosplay" later on.
I have sewn a bit in the past, like cushions and such basics you get to learn in school. Sewing a whole outfit was much different, but I was determined to do it. I never got the perfect fabric, but I was satisfied with what I got. Making the mask was the best part on this costume! Its so creative!
While doing J-Music Cosplay I always used my real hair, so yes, it was really short for a while.
