Awarded Best in Class Workmanship and Presentation (Artisan division) at Otakuthon 2010, Montreal.
As I mentioned in a previous deviation, it was very windy during this shoot, so I had some difficulty with posing the costume the way I wanted, and the hat wanted to escape at times. From that turbluence came this magical photo that I love.
Alas I don't have 8 arms and can't control certain parts of the costume flipping up, but it looks more natural this way.
