Hi lovelies! I've been talking about the SAO shooting at a waterfall in the Swiss alps, and here's the first photo of it!
To be honest – This was more a choice out of love for the design than anything else, because I didn't really like the
fairy dance arc. It was not believably written to me and I just don't understand why they turned Asuna into a mere
plot device when she's actually so frickin' badass BUT – I do love the concept of ALO, I love fairies and I fell in love
with her Titania Avatar. I almost had all the materials already there and really wanted to try out making fairy wings
…and I absolutely adore fairy tale like settings and wanted to explore other places of Switzerland more …… so yeah,
in the end, there were way more reasons for me to do this than not to. And I don't regret it the least! I hope you
guys like it too!
I made the costume from scratch and it's one of the most inexpensive costumes I've made! Most of the materials
were already there, other things I've got 'sponsored' by friends.
I tweaked the design more to my liking and my personal taste influenced the whole costume a lot.This includes
the wings! I tried to stay faithful to the most characteristic parts of the design, but added gold elements, delicate
lace trims and ruffles at some point. I absolutely wanted to have a pair of more realistic looking wings as well, so I
drew the shape after the reference and looked up insect wings and how their wings look like to complete the whole
It was really fun to make! Took me longer than expected though since I also had to add and colour some extensions
for the wig length …bought the wrong wig I'm afraid! e_e
