Katsucon: Aqua by Malindachan Katsucon: Aqua by Malindachan
I was working at Katsucon, but I managed to get myself up early enough so that I could wear Aqua for a few hours! :) I've been wanting to wear her again for a while, but I had been holding out until I got a new wig and remade my shoes. I am super particular about the color of her hair, so previously I had been using an ebay wig that was super quirky because it was the only place I could find that had the right color. I managed to convince my boss to make this color at Arda though, so here it is! It's a Magnum XL in Denim Blue AR036.
My shoe armor used to be made out of craft foam, but they were pretty delicate and had been getting messed up from a lot of use. The new ones I'm wearing here are made out of worbla, so they're nice and sturdy!

I'm not very patient with sanding so they're not as smooth as I'd like them to be, but at least they look good in pictures. :)

I can understand the sanding, to be fair anything on shoes or boots might be a little tougher to sand for instead on arms ans such :) Great work as always Malinda! I hope next year I can visit your book at Katsucon ;)

Sorry for the inactivity! I haven't gone to very many cons lately where I had a chance to get pictures. I'm still around and making costumes though! :)

This shot is amazing! You're new shoes and hair look wonderful :D
They should have named the new colour after you xD

Nah, I already have a wig named after me, and that's more than enough. XD It would be weird to have a color named after a person haha.
