Kingdom Hearts 2

This costume was one of the first that I ever made. Looking back, I feel a lot of pride for how hard I worked on it. Kingdom Heartshas always been a nostalgic series for me and this costume was no different. The keyblade was cut out and crafted by a friend of mine. I sanded, painted and created the chain. The gloves, shorts, tank-top and coat were all altered from "found" items. 

I wore this costume for Anime Expo 2007. For the first time, people stopped me and asked for my picture. I also met J. Ryoga for the first time and having a shoot with such a prolific costumer was a really rewarding experience. 

Overall, this piece definitely brings back some awesome memories.
