My first cosplay picture! Thank you Alodia for aiding my inner fangirl in making this possible! :D

In the beginning we were only talking about making one Motherland Chronicles picture (week 24),  we both got to L.A. for Anime Expo. But after hearing that she too had just visited Yoshitaka Amano's studio, I couldn't resist asking if she would be open to cosplaying one of his characters. And she said yes! 

So despite deadline and time-constraint Alodia managed to put the costume together and I was so excited you have no idea. I was almost a fangirl on set because it was just so exciting to see one of Amano's character come to life, and Alodia was so perfect for it too, I so want to do more cosplay shoots now~!

Special commendation for my assistant Julia that day, who did like, 4 hours of driving because I stayed in Irvine and her LA. So thank you and ♥ x100000!
