I was debating on posting these images since these are con floor photos, but decided to anyway since I do have memories in this cosplay. Amatsukaze was one of my first few bought cosplays, so I decided to try my best to make the props (the side and back pieces).
The base of the props were made with cardboard, and was covered with Bondo body filler to shape it.
Looking back at it, I do wish I spent more time on the smaller details. But was probably too focused on my other cosplay (Bokutachi dance group).
Overall I think my make-up and posing improved. I also feel like I do better with wigs now!
