First of all, thank you for all the views, favs and comments^^
This journal won't be so long as the last one, but I really had to share all the progress of Aika's cosplay. So, here we go:
I've been planning to cosplay Fuwa Aika from Zetsuen no Tempest from a long time, as most of you already knew. I really love the character, since her personality is totally similar to mine and, specially, because her relationship with Yoshino makes me think of my own with *Linkster-Art
♥ He also likes Yoshino a lot too, so it was just perfect as we wanted to cosplay together again!
First, I was making her winter uniform but the wig took ages to arrive and when I finally got it, it came with the wrong colour (blonde/extremely light brown ; ; ) I tried to dye it right, with the help of *Linkster-Art
, but I kept on disliking it since the quality wasn't that great too and due to the lack of time to order a new one... I ended up cutting and dyeing my own hair like hers (❀◦◡◦)That terrible wig being colored and then me after getting my hair like hers. So much better! I wonder if more Aika cosplayers are having the same problem, since I've been hearing more people complaining about it too.
All this process took so long that the weather was already warm here and I had to do her summer uniform too xD
I guided myself from the official character's designs above (tell me if you want the scans too, because I've those from all the chars^^) It was the best way to decide about the colours for the costume and also to be completely sure about her hair colour, since it has many variations during the anime.
Some wip photos: I made Yoshino's tie too, together with *Linkster-Art and all those butterflies for the photos :3 Skirt progress is not here because I already had it from an old costume.
So, we went as Aika and Yoshino on the last convention here^^ *Linkster-Art
was just perfect but I was a bit insecure about myself because of all those stresses with the wig and stuff... Still, people praised my hair a lot and said that I'm actually similar to Aika! I was soooo freaking happy ; ; I just hope that my new wig will look good too (and brown instead of blonde lol), since my hair won't last like this forever *snif*Shared this picture of us during the convention, on my instagram [link]
Thanks a lot for the positive feedback you have been giving us here too ♥ We're both really glad about your good reception and... Our photo even reached first page, at 'Cosplay & Role-Playing'! SO OMG, THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH ; ;
On a final note: expect too see us as Aika and Yoshino again (`･ω･´)
