:iconshigeako: as Aika Thompson 2.0 from Skies of Arcadia // Eternal Arcadia

Photo by lovely :iconhasengott:

_______________

you may ask yourself: Why Aika Thompson 2.0? What does that mean? Easy explanation. I made my first Aika Costume two years ago, in 2009. You can see various pictures of that in my gallery.
I then decided to make it anew. Everything except for little details.
I sewed the dress, glove and bootcovers again and used a, in my opinion, much better and more fitting AND more beautiful fabric, some kind of fake leather. The details were taken from my 1.0 outfit (earrings, belt, armstuff, necklace, boomerang, glasses)

The wig was styled by :iconcosplaysymphony: so all the credit goes directly to her! ! ! :heart:

therewill be more pictures soon :3

hope you like it :D
Comments and Faves are appreciated as always ^^

Nini, ich hab total Respekt vor dir, denn es steckt schon sehr viel Durchhaltevermögen dahinter, ein Cosplay - welches schon wunderschön war - nochmal komplett neu zu gestalten.
Aika 2.0 ist einfach umwerfend geworden. Die Wahl des neuen Stoffes ist verdammt ueberzeugend und richtig passend. Grandiose Arbeit *verbeug*

Oh, und natürlich einen ganz grossen Lob an den Fotografen, er hat deine Pose wunderbar eingefangen, als würde der Bumerang direkt auf den Betrachter zusteuern.
Außerdem einen riesen Lob an CosplaySymphony für ihre beachtliche Umsetzung der Frisur O.O

Awesome job on the design, I really like the texture of this fabric, it lends itself well to flat colors and matches great with the bright mood of SoA's bright and colorful style. Cool pose. CS did a great job on the wig.

Ah; what a lovely costume and perfect pose. I see the wig was made by another in your comments but please tell me; are the pigtails molded around wire or are they hanging free?
