Thanks to Elemental and whoever had my camera for the photos!
My friend Becky was asking me to cosplay +Anima with her for two years before I finally found a costume I was willing to make. It appears on a single page of volume four but I thought it looked pretty cool.
This costume was mostly made of twill and a vinyl with a scale pattern on it. The boots are both these things covering foam. The staff is just a staff with two lightbulbs stuck to the ends, paper mached and painted.
I wore this costume to the second annual Toronto Cosplay Picnic. Besides the lack of pants, it was actually quite comfortable and fun to wear. I had a lot of fun running around dressed like Husky, and a lot of little children stopped to talk to me. :) Amanda dressed up as Husky's mother, and since our costumes went together, we took some photos together. I also took many photos with Becky, who dressed up as Nana from the same series.
I also wore Husky on the Sunday of CN Anime 2005. Sakura wore Becky's Nana costume so I have a few photos with her.
