Here is my Touko or Hilda from Pokemon B&W. This was taken at Anime Festival Orlando 2011. It was insanely hot that day. Overall, the costume was very comfortable for the weather. The pink on the hat, shoes and the ENTIRE bag is hand painted with acrylics. The wig was the hardest part. It was originally golden color and 17 inches long, so I had to dye it using inks. What a nightmare! It looks nothing like hers, but I tried.
He is an awesome photographer. He also sets a very comfortable environment despite my lack of modeling skills.
