Thank you CatKin755 :heart: It is indeed really difficult to pull of a nice expression especially if you are in a summer dress and it's cold outside. Remember I watched some models shooting bikini photos in the sea in winter at sunrise. It was damn cold even though it looked like summer in Spain, they were shaking but still had to keep warm face expression and pretend it's warm...
First 10 minutes were the most difficult then you get used to the cold. However you have to be carefull not to overdo it, cause you stop feeling that you are cold after some time.

Still it was fun and totally worth doing ^^

Oh wow, I love this shot...it's amazing in so many ways. The simple, feminine white dress paired with the blade makes quite a powerful statement...and shows a more gentle side of Lightning.

There's so much in the picture that screams perfection...but I'm not good at pointing out what it is that makes such an impression on me. This has to be one of my favorite cosplay shots ever though.

I love this so much. :rose:

This is so brilliant and it made me giggle slightly, that dress and the scenery are like something from a romantic film and then we see the gunblade and Lightnings "don't mess with me" expression!

It's wonderful, absolutely wonderful!

This picture is cool, your figure fits well in this picture. I'm truly amazed at the level of detail you put into her Gunblade. Wondering how you pulled that off. I haven't finished the game, but I'm looking forward to the end ^^

Thank you for comment RuneKatashima, happy you like it.
The blade was commisioned, I really prefered to have a decent one than struggle with it myself. I do not have any prop making skills as well as I do not have any tools that would be required to make such an amazing piece of art.

Sounds exactly like something I'd say...
When I get out of the Navy I want to be a metallurgist. Basically someone who researches new metals, new compounds, and new ways to fold metal. To make them more durable, sturdier and such. Of course, me being me, I'll be using it to do blacksmithing and armor/weaponsmithing =P

You know, I feel like I've been rude totally derailing the topic >.<; sorreh. Anyway, Shizuka kind've led me to you if you didn't guess =P I like your cosplays so far from what I've seen ^^

Mettalurgist? Wow, that's very interesting. Never met anyone who'd have such a dream. Well, someone smart said once "we should be everything in our lifes apart from the usual boring human being". So why not! ^_^

Well, it's just one, and not my primary. In fact it'd be more like a hobby once I get my main goal. I really want to publish my writing. I probably would have done THAT as a hobby, but a lot of people have been telling me to pursue it, so I'm going to. I was thinking that instead of just finding a publisher, to publish it myself. So to that end I'm going to go to College once I'm out of the Navy with the end goal of opening a publishing company.
I want to publish games too ^^

Once more just WOW Ana. I don't think many people would be able to show of the strong Soldier in Light in this nice dress like you do. And once more the little story too it is just what i would expect Light to think and say.

And i know i said it very often and that other people will say it too, but you look just gorgeous and stunning!

And there can be no doubts at all that, what we see here, is Lightning, even without the uniform it is sooo clear to see who this is.

It's just perfect! But your poor feet, that must have been terribly cold!
