Karuna by vickybunnyangel Karuna by vickybunnyangel
Karuṇā means compassion and sympathy. It is the aspiration to be helpful to oneself and to others. Homura 's initial appearance and actions may have seemed cold, but as the series progressed and her motives became more clear, she is truly a compassionate and loyal individual.

Character: Homura Akemi
Photographer: James Wu [link]
Cosplay made entirely by me, and modeled by me

I really like this pictures that James took of me :3. I think the background (which is an air vent) suits the costume pretty well!

This costume was deceptively difficult. At first glance it looks easy enough, and technically wise it isn't hard to construct, but I have never worked with to much bias tape trimming before so this project was a great exercise in mitered corners. Because the design is so simple, it was imperative for me to keep everything very clean and well tailored. I love how this turned out, and the colours I chose for the fabrics worked really well.

My time shield is made from wonderflex, craft foam, and gears from a clock I cannibalized. It spins!

Wait, what? I really got to keep up with the news!! Who is she making? (I recognize I should ask her directly, if anything, but, hey :XD:)

I also have a group planned for next year with friends, in which I'll be Sayaka <3 That series truly was impressive and so cool :D

All of your hard work with the craftsmanship really paid off! You really fit Homura to a T, and you and the costume (and the time shield!) both look amazing.
