Samsara by vickybunnyangel Samsara by vickybunnyangel
Character: Homura Akemi
Source: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Cosplay made and modelled by Me

Samsara is the continuous flow of life, time - an endless cycle. It is the cycle in which beings are trapped in to forever die and be reborn again until the day we reach our nirvana.

I spent a lot of time tailoring my Homura costume and making sure the proportions for the collar, triangle things, skirt length, etc. are right. With such a simple costume design, it's a lot harder to hide imperfections.

Homura's hair is a dark greyish black, and not jet black, so I took a dark grey wig and dyed it with a bit of purplish black sharpie dye to darken it a bit to get Homura's hair colour. You can't really see it in this photo, but other photos of Homura the wig photographs more grey than black.

My hand gem was done last minute using paperclay mounted onto craft foam. I didn't have time to cast it out of resin, but I think my quick solution still looks pretty good.

You make such a wonderful Homu-chan. :heart:

The composition of the photo and with the way you're posing just reminds me of the saints that have halos around their heads in old Christian Renaissance art. So, you look super saintly! I think it's fitting.

Aw thank you! Hahaha that was my secret theme for all my Homura photos. Madoka is god, and she's a saint :P
