LINA INVERSE Slayers Artbook Cosplay by neoqueenhoneybee LINA INVERSE Slayers Artbook Cosplay by neoqueenhoneybee
Lina 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. :P

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.

I love how you put so much effort in this costume, the details are amazing! I felt the same when making my Hikaru armor (Rayearth is my all time favourite childhood anime, but I remember and liked The Slayers very much too) Great job!! *--*

Thank you so much!! Lina demands attention to detail!! Or she'll Dragon Slave you. :P Your Hikaru armor has a great shape!! Very nice!

I have a very talented cosplayer friend who will be working on her Lina soon, and I cannot wait to see the amazingness that will come from her!

Ahah thank you very much! Though I wish I was prettier so I could actually look like Hikaru ;/ she's just too awesome T_T

Oh and I'll check her out, thanks for the link~!

Ah, I share your grief. If I were prettier...and younger, I'd cosplay Sailor Moon!!! Unnng, the dream cosplays....

Awww Sailor Moon~ I'm sure you'd make a perfect queen Serenity though

I hope so, as I do plan on cosplaying her one day. :)

This is amazing! I love how you added floof to get her wild bangs, the fabrics, the pauldrons...everything!!

Thank you!! I love Slayers/Lina so much, so was a labor of love. :)

I'm NOT a stylist, and the hair didn't turn out how I had hoped, but I knew I still needed her crazy bangs! :P
