Those on Twitter know that I've been busy helping my only child with her first-ever CosPlay outfit for AWA 2012 (Anime Weekend Atlanta), an anime con she's attending with a dozen or more of her friends. She chose the character Yuya Shiina from the manga Samurai Deeper Kyo (I dunno, I just type what she told me). Anyway, she picked out the materials, bought the pattern and begged mom for help making the costume. The character looks like this:
The costume, done in a steampunk fashion, would replace the traditional obi with a leather corset and her three barrel pistol with one mounted to an arm bracer. I think the results, especially for a first attempt, turned out quite nice. IF (big if) I did this correctly, the pictures should be clickable to larger versions. If not, well, oops.
