Aqua: Olympus by Malindachan Aqua: Olympus by Malindachan
We had a cosplay gathering at the Missouri Capital this last weekend to help promote Cosplacon [link] . I chose to wear Aqua because it was more comfortable in the summer heat, and I really wanted to get some photos with the architecture. :3

Aqua made and worn by :iconmalindachan:

Where did you get the wig? And would you be willing to make another for a price? :o

This picture is very nice. Has a feel of XIII-2 with it. Meaning, instead of Lightning, we have Aqua looking out over a vast area.

The place where the photo was taken is just perfect for some Saint Seiya cosplay. Are you into this fandom? What about cosplaying Athena or Abel? You'll do a great cosplay for some of the saints! It's just like you are in the sanctuary!
Now, about the actual photo ^////^ Tour cosplay looks great. I think it is one of the best you've done. And the wig looks great, too. Maybe the blue you chose is a bit too dark compared to the photos of Aqua I've seen, but I think it makes the cosplay look very good. It makes you look a lot more like a character from a video game than like a real person. I think that's great in a cosplay. You really become the character!

Thank you :3.
I was really picky on colors when I was looking for a wig base. There are more options now, but back when I was wig shopping, all the wigs I was finding were too saturated of a blue. I managed to find this base on ebay, which was a beautiful blend of blue with grey, but I had to make homemade wefts with excess hair from the wig (it was originally very long) in order to have a thick enough base to work with.

This is awesome. I never played BBS but I did cheat (YouTube) and this reminds me of the Cinderella castle.
