Photo @ ~Icie
Outfit, props, accessories @ ~kaguyaxhime

Outfit first worn at Sydney Animania (Sunday) 2011!

Special thanks to:
~Icie - for shooting this outfit on short notice + lovely photos ;-; <3
*SorceressMooNBlaDeR - for helping with lighting, bubbles and keeping me warm (>3<)
~char-min - for helping with bubbles and assisting ;3;
~itakoaya - for looking after belongings <3

Decided to upload this photo to celebrate two things: the release of the second Macross Frontier movie on BluRay/DVD, and also for 30,000+ page views *_*

Thank you very much for the support and viewing of my photos (>A<) <3 <3

Yay Ranka~! I am too tall to cos Ranka really, but I love her outfits and I've wanted to make this outfit from the moment it was released in trailers etc for the second movie! I kind of want to make the black version too... :'D

It was my second time making a proper prop, and I was so proud of how it looked..until I had to transport it in my suitcase to Sydney... and the bubble wrap I used to protect it ate into the paint OTL OTL OTL ...It had felt completely dry when I touched/pressed on it back home OTL Overall I loved how the colours and everything came together nicely, only downside was I didn't leave time to make the polka dot socks XD;

Shoot wise, it was really windy that night, so all the bubbles were getting blown away... hence the sparkly brush additions >_>; It was also probably the quickest shoot I've done since people were gathering in the area for a performance of some sort!? (Not Macross F related unfortunately XD)

I'd love to wear this cos again, but everything needs fixing '''OTL Hopefully I'll find a Sheryl cosing the awesome white uniform version to shoot with next time (*w*) <3
