Thank you so much for 20.000 page views!
To celebrate (?), I decided to share three pictures today, two of which are showing the new costumes I debuted at Connichi last week.
Above you can see my second new costume for Connichi: Princess Sapphire. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with Ribon no Kishi aka The Princess Knight. It's a manga (and TV anime) by Osamu Tezuka about a princess who was raised as a boy and has to hide her feminity in order to be able to inherit the throne. The story is quite simple, but also really cute and the manga in particular has some beautiful artwork and funny characters.
I remember watching the anime on TV when I was in school and even as a kid I loved the designs. The dress above is not from the TV series, however, but based on Sapphire's dresses in the manga - mostly, because I really felt like being a sparkly princess for a chance.
I don't have a full-body picture of my huge fluffy skirt, yet, but have this beautiful picture by Andy instead.
