THOUGHTS:
-Tokyo Mew Mew is an early 2000's magical girl series about five girls each with the power of an endangered species. I used to borrow the manga from my local library when I was a kid and had a great time bringing this nostalgic character to life. This costume was created for the Anime USA Sakura Matsuri fashion show and we were lucky to do a photoshoot before the venue got too crowded.
