The Pillar of Cephiro by etaru The Pillar of Cephiro by etaru
Kind of lower quality image than I usually upload, but it's to show the full dress I made in the span of a month on top of school, finals, moving, and finishing the debate team XD I'll probably move this to scraps later.
This was probably the easiest of everyone's Rayearth costumes, but I'm really happy with it, and was so thrilled to cosplay with my California/Nevada friends :3

Princess Emeraude from Magic Knight Rayearth (ending dress [link])
Dress made by me
Jewels and armor constructed by Mykasou (Zagato)

Sez you, You're more edible without armor. Armor = hard = not bite friendly :(. lol Both armor and dress alike are beautiful craftsmanship

The work you did on your dress is amazing. You have great patience, otherwise it wouldn't look so beautiful on you.

etaru Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
Actually, I rather ran out of patience on all the little details that will never show up in photos, but impressed the judges lol (like all the embroidery on the bodice and dress train xD)

I've said it before, and I will say it again; Art will never be perfect in the eyes of the artist. But in the eyes of others, art will always be beautiful.

etaru Featured By Owner May 29, 2009
Well, not always XDD I'd rather say some costumes look terrible in the eyes of others lol

gamefan23 Featured By Owner May 29, 2009
Perhaps that could be true as well.

However an artist must never think negatively about their own work. It takes a lots of trail and error to prefect their own work.

I seek encouragement from others in order to become better in my field. Cosplayers such as yourself.

Yup, unfortunately so.

Though you have to admit that tragedy can be an attractive feature for a story itself.
