Lina Inverse...one of my all time favorite anime characters since 1995...or 96. I'm WAY too old to be Lina, but some dreams never die with age.
I took a lot of time to make this my best cosplay yet, in all areas possible. I chose my 'perfect' fabrics, spent too long making the pauldrons, and...well, there was a lot of work involved. I even made my belts! I had never attempted armor or weapons before, so I had much to learn to bring me up to speed for Lina.
I do have to apologize for my photo 'editing'. I really wanted the fireball to be epic..but I'm just not there yet. One day I will edit AMAZING magic for Lina. Maybe a Dragon Slave. NOOOOOOO!!! A Giga Slave! Or Ragna Blade!!! TT^TT <--- Tears of hopeful excitement.
FYI - Since I barely am on DA anymore, this super tacky photo collage layout will be seen more often, but if you want to view more images, please choose your preferred site (in order from most to least active). I'm not using many other sites these days.
