Series: D'Gray Man
Time to Make: Too many hours to count >.<
Status: 90% Done
About: I think I have a thing for red hair...but anyway, after about 5 seconds of first meeting Lavi while watching D'Gray man I was hooked. I HAD to cosplay him. Sadly this costume has caused me so much trouble. I've redone the wig many times, keep finding problems with the jacket and now I want to remake the hammer which is the only part I actually have done. I've been working on this costume on and off for well over a year and even if it takes another year or so before I'm happy with it I WILL finish it.

Series: Marchen Awakens Romance
Time to Make: 3 hours
Status: 10% Done
About: Chimera is THE most bad ass character in MAR (next to Phantom and Alviss). She is so awesome. Who dosent love the completly insane characters? When I finally get around to doing this I plan to do both her arm ARMs and I'm going NO mask version. Thats right eye balls and scars! woot woot.
About: Another of my many favorites of Rekka no Ken. I planned Will a long time ago but put him aside for some reason. But now hes back and with new challenges, I've never done shoulder armor or a bow before...
About: Shes so bubbly and cute. I just think she'd be a fun character too cosplay. I'm not sure when I'll get around to Aqua. I do know Chimera will be first, but hopefully Aqua wont be too far behind.
About: First armored character I really have planned. I just love her design so much and think she'd be a fun costume. Plus armor = challenge, and I love me a challenge :)

Status: 5% Done
About: I've been planning Beatrix for years, just never gotten around to it. But hopefully some day soon.
Series: MAR: Marchen Awakens Romance
Time to Make: About 30-40 Hours
First Appearance: AnimeNext 2007
About: Alviss won a special place in my heart from his first meeting with Ginta. I mean seriously, beating the shit out of Ginta just because he can. I remember thinking to myself "he's a cocky little bastard...I LOVE HIM" but as the series went on I realized he wasnt that much of a cocky little bastard, but he was still freaking awesome. I do really love the way this costume came out. I do want to remake the boots but above all else I need to find a new way to make his ARMs. Once I remake the ARMs Alviss WILL return to the convention world.
Character: Nana Komatsu (Hachiko)
Time to Make: About 15 Hours
First Appearance: Katsucon 2007
About: I love Hachiko and I wanted to be hachi for my friends Nana costume. But after one con the shoes kinda cracked and fell apart so I dont think I'll be wearing this one again. Atleast not this version ;)
Series: Final Fantasy 7
Time to Make: About 25 Hours
First Appearance: Katsucon 2007
About: I've made the Advent Children version and Dirge of Cerberus, I felt like I just had to go back and do the original. I tried really hard to get this costume right and for the most part I think I did a good job. Though like many of my costumes this one needs alot of remaking. But I do have this costume at the top of my To Do List and I really wanna wear it again some day soon.
Series: Avatar the Last Air Bender
Time to Make: About 30 Hours
First Appearance: Anime USA 2006
Other Appearances: Katsucon 2007
About: I was talked into this one for an Avatar group. I suck at poses and I still hadnt seen much Avatar at that point so I kinda failed as Toph, hence the retiredness. But I still like my little poof ball head thing I made.
Time to Make: 10 Hours
First Appearance: Kosaikon 2005
Other Appearances: AnimeNext 2005, Crack Crew Photoshoot 2005
About: I really wanted to cosplay a Naruto character and Iruka is just awesome so why not. I'll always love this costume as one of my firsts but I dont think he'll ever come out of retirement.
Character: Sailor Mars
Series: Sailor Moon
Time to Make: 20 Hours
About: Another idea from my cousin. We were supposed to be in a Sailor Moon group with her as Venus and me as Mars. But the rest of the group never showed up and we ended up never wearing the costumes. Which kinda sucks but personally kinda happy haha. Though I did feel bad because my mom actually did most of this costume, this was back when still couldnt sew worth crap.
Series: Haibane Renmei
Time to Make: 5 Hours
First Appearance: Cousins Brithday Party 2004
Other Appearances: Katsucon 2005
About: My cousin asked me to because she cosplayed Rakka. After she made me watch the series I ended up loving Reki and I went ahead and made the costume. Have yet to wear 100% of the costume to a convention but maybe one day....one day
