After putting off this costume for a year I finally got this done for Anime Expo!! I had a lot of fun with my Polka and Viola being general badasses, and I can't wait to have the rest of my group happen for a future con. *_*
I loved Rondo's character so I wanted to emulate her as much as I could. This was one of my very first costumes with colored contacts and with such extensive armor stuff, and while I'm missing a lot of the details I'm very proud of what I've accomplished for this cosplay.
All parts of the outfit that required sewing were done by me. The weapons were made by ~evalime
. I had a lot of help with the little armor bits, diamond stuffs, and making sense of the armor references from *hakuku
helped me with styling the wig. So yeah... I had a LOT of help outside of the sewing which in essence wasn't very hard. I learned a LOT of things while making this outfit. The armor totally slaughtered my motivation to do anything with armor in the near future, though...
