Why Saya Minatsuki?

She was fun, smart, sang, and could handle a gun. Sexy. Her role in the series made me love her even more. When my friends wanted to do a cosplay group for AX, I proposed Black Cat, and what fun we had!

How'd you do it?

This was my first kimono to sew...EVER. So, it was a challenge starting out, especially with those sleeves. I did get it though and I was very happy with the final result. I was painting it last minute though, and my friends helped out so I could sleep and be able to drive them safely to the con the next day.

After thoughts?

I want to do this again sometime, but I want to remake it. I now know what paints to use on fabric and I'd like the kimono to look a little better. For my first time, it was pretty good, btu my skills have upped since then. That time just won't be soon.
