PTT: Defiers of Fate by MangoSirene PTT: Defiers of Fate by MangoSirene
I'm working on my Rue leotard right now and listening to the Swan Lake score, so I feel that uploading a Tutu photo is extremely necessary!

I've said it a thousand-trillion times, but I love my cosplay family. So much. This group was a dream of mine, and I'm still in awe that it came true! And that we'll be doing this quartet many, many times again in the future~!

And Amanda is both an amazing, incredible photographer and friend. We've been doing shoots with her for nearly two years at every con we go to. I can't wait to work with her again, we've never had a bad shoot with her! (I know it's always my personal highlight of the con!)

Anyway, I'll stop rambling now. :heart:

For more info on this costume (including construction details), check out my Cos.Com page: [link]

And for photos of the rest of my group, here are their galleries:

I really love your cosplays! Me and my friend are planing to cosplay from this.
So i have a question
how did u get the Kraehe cosplay to stay up? Like the top part?

Thank you so much~! :heart:

My bodice was kept up using a system of clear straps (which Elemental was kind enough to Photoshop out of the up-close pictures for the aesthetic of the photos). One as a halter strap, one around the back, and then another across the front. In addition to that, I also used Sock Glue for extra security!

I hope that helps! If you have any other questions just let me know - best of luck with your own costumes!! :)

Nothing's set in stone yet -- I've refused to make commitments for anything past June, until after Fanime at the end of May. Still, it's a possibility. I'd love to see those in person, though! : D I'm actually planning another Mytho cosplay myself... and more in the future. I never figured he'd be the one I'd settle on cosplaying from that series, but he has some of the coolest outfits.

You guys are always so beautiful ;-;
And Elemental is such a lighting wiz!
This may sound cheesy, but the friendships and close bonds between your cosfam makes me all sentimental sometimes-- and it really shows through in your cosplays~ I just really hope one day I can find that sort of friendship, too o3o

And for not being trained in ballet, you guys did rather well! The only little critique is sometimes Tutu's hand/arm placements were a little awkward/ stiff.
That aside... AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME 8D

T-that made me tear up a little... ;___; It's so true though, my cosplay family are my best friends in the entire world. No one will ever be able to take their place. I honestly don't know where or who I'd be without them!

And yeah, for some of those photos we were playing with the concept of Kraehe "correcting" Tutu's ballet, so Courtney purposefully messed up with a few poses. But the idea apparently doesn't come across that well and instead just looks awkward, like you said. We won't be trying that again, that's for sure!
