Shoukoku no Altair ::01 by Cvy Shoukoku no Altair ::01 by Cvy
A few hiccups on this cosplay because I started late.. overlooked on my wig too, I thought I would find one in my considerably big stash of blonde wigs but =_=... would get a new one and might re-made parts of the costume if I find the right fabric too. Would also do up a photo journal on the costume making (some brief bits and tips that I hope is useful to you? if I'm not lazy, heh)

Wore it at an event but I didn't survive long, I felt nauseous because of the heavy headpiece and had to be rested for a long time ._. sigh.

I kept saying Persia for some reason but this manga is about the Turks, in a fictional way, during the Ottoman times. Very interesting manga, if you like politics and adventure .. or just pretty and clean artwork you can give this a shot <3
