I logged in yesterday to a couple thousand notifications and a Daily Deviation! I can't thank you guys enough - all of your comments, faves, and support really mean a lot to me. I'm doing my best to respond to everyone, but it's been a little overwhelming, so it may take a couple days (:
I've been cosplaying for several years now, but my Guild Wars 2 costume is my baby - I'm a dedicated fan of the first game, but didn't want to cosplay from it until I had the skills to do it justice. This was my project for the better part of a year, and it was a huge learning experience (I can't tell you how many times I scrapped pieces of it that weren't working out!). It's your responses that make it seem really worthwhile to me, and I'm glad that I can share my love for this game to a wider audience.
I'll try to not turn this into an Oscar acceptance speech, but I want to thank Darkain Multimedia for showcasing the costume so beautifully. And, of course, Saiyuki-15 for the suggestion and Pullingcandy for the feature.
I tend to save DA for finished products, but if you'd like to follow more of my progress, convention schedule, or day-to-day cosplay musings, please follow me on Facebook or Tumblr. I have a long list of future costumes and I'm already working on a new one, so there's no end in sight for me ^^
