Don't let the Frostbite ...bite

Sorry for the bad pun but headlines are always hard to come up with!
Frostbite was last weekend and uh it went by so fast. Between working on Saturday and having couple of photoshoots on Sunday I wished I'd seen a bit more of the program that I did.

Originally I was supposed to make a new costume for Frostbite, then after Yukicon decided I wouldn't  have time with everything I need to get done and decided I'd just bring Asuka instead. Then a week before the con I was like 'you know I have enough done so that in theory, I might be able to pull the costume off after all'. With a little help from a friend who came by and gave a hand with some buttons and loops and such I somehow managed it. Some parts need a bit of adjusting, and I didn't get a proper shoot but Yumi was a darling and took couple of quick snaps for me.

I made Hellena's Arcana Circus version from Granado Espada and this has so many silly parts oh god. I've been wanting to make it for a really long time and I'm superhappy I finally found a spot for it. It feels really nice to have finally something that's been hanging around in your folders done.
In general Hellena is probably the most 'feminine' costume I've made and I feel really out of place in it for that. Also it's always a good idea to make something that is sure to lose your waist, but I knew that when I decided to make it so I can't really blame anyone.
