A Storm Is Coming by akuriko A Storm Is Coming by akuriko
Even though it was cold and I didn't get to wear my Harle costume, YoumaCon was still so much fun! I got to cosplay with new friends, take some videos, and do lots of shoots! I feel fortunate that I was able to avoid a lot of trouble the hotel was causing other people. I've heard the convention may move to a new location next year. Makes me curious about where it might end up. =)

Costume made and modeled by me.

Wow! You're the most realistic Zelda I've ever seen! The background fits perfectly too. :) (Smile)

Your Zelda cosplay is amazing. I wish you were able to go to Fanime this weekend so I could meet you. You're beautiful and I don't think anyone could cosplay Zelda as well as you :heart:

Keep up the fantastic work, hun :)

I can't seem to find any, and that sucks, because I have to live there till I'm 18. (I'm 14, and when I grow up, I'm moving to GA to help my Grandma. DRAGON CON FTW!!)

Sorry you see all these messages from me, my inbox flooded, and I kinda abandoned this account. And I saw yours and thought I should reply.
