About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- Well! My mum made this costume for me back in 2007. I wore it to Anime Detour and got my first taste of glomping goodness. I had retired it till I met Jonathan and discovered Trigun is one of our mutual favorite animes.
We had put the costume on hold till we could afford the red trench coat (figured it would be easier to buy than make) and lo and behold! Museum Replicas put the coat on clearance, and we snatched it up. Next we recruited some friends to set a date and location for a photoshoot, and we got the whole cast together!
The only thing I did differently was the wig. I originally had my hair cut in a black pixie bob, but now it's shoulder length and brown / purple, so I had to get a wig off eBay. Oh! And I lost my earrings and had to buy some more. The rest is all the same!
We took the pictures in Kettleman Hills. It was super fun, and I am TOTALLY smitten on my Vash fiance. ^_^
