I got up on stage and acted a tit. Here’s video evidence.
Big thank you to Karen for performing beautifully with me, Christian for helping me peg bits of blue costume on my washing line as it dried, Kii for letting me borrow her embroidery machine for the trim on the costume and Timber for manning my stall while I was off swanning about the convention.
Also a big thank you to the judges who decided I deserved a second place compared to all the other amazing costumes. Sima Yi was made over a period of 9 days with about 100 hours work, I didn’t even think I’d get it finished for the omake! Details on costume construction to follow when I get some pictures of it. Most of it is spray paint and acrylic ink, though it uses a lot of techniques that other people will probably appreciate for future costumes.
