THOUGHTS:
-As soon as I saw Aqua in the game trailer I knew I wanted to make this outfit. Her design was a major creative challenge for me, as it incorporated a lot of unfamiliar techniques, primarily armor making. While not perfect, I'm very proud of how this costume turned out- my first project of the new year!
