"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping
than you can understand."

-The Stolen Child
By W.B Yeats

Welcome Team Australia 2011!

These costumes and performance won us the chance to represent our beloved country Australia in Nagoya, Japan for the World Cosplay Summit 2011, which was selected at the Australian Finals at Main Animania 2010.

This marks Tess' first time to leave the country and and we can't think of a better reason to travel internationally.

The costumes write ups will be posted seperately with pictures of the individual costumes.

Tsugiri costume made and worn by Tess
Miyobi costume made and worn by Jess

:iconfiathriel: also did a write up of the convention and there are more photos available at :iconcosplay-gen:'s website

Tess: Thank you so much for your lovely comment! We originally got into cosplay because we were inspired by the work of other cosplayers we had met, so know that we're passing on the torch (so to speak XD) in the same way is heart warming!

Is it your guys first time in Japan??

I hope August of this year is not that hot, because is pretty hot right now >.<, but 2years ago rained a little bit on the WCS day so the temperature was great.

Hope you enjoy the shopping here, is really great.

The costumes are so.. incredible! I wish I could have seen the skit irl >_<

Sorry if I'm being a bother by asking, but how did you do the wings? owo They were so pretty! (It's perfectly okay if you don't feel like telling ^^)
Reply
:iconharaju2girls:
haraju2girls Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2010
Hi! Thanks for the lovely comment :D The wings were just some careful fabric choices attached to dowel rods which were screwed loosely into a plane of wood at the back of the costume. There was a little catch under the top dowel rod so when they were lifted it hooked in underneath it and they remained up :D
