"She walked through the thick glass doors of Duel Academy knowing she was different. Knowing here students were trained to duel...
Something that she loved and feared.
She didn't understand herself, much less that terrible power she felt deep within. And she felt like she didn't belong.Like she was a thorny weed in a garden.
But little did she know that she was in fact a rare bloom, a black rose that held the heart of a queen among queens."
I have to say I loved bringing this cosplay out from my closet again after so long. Besides the end of series outfit, and the duel runner one, I think this one is one of my favorites. I always have fun in it, and this time around I even got called the "Queen of Queens" by a few people!
I also loved playing with some new make up I had grabbed over the summer, namely my new "Aki eyebrow pencil" and I really think that the false eyelashes were an awesome touch.
I may have to do the same make-up style for when I run around as "Normal Aki" and after I decided to style the new wig semi-similar to this one- namely the length of the back of the wig. With how it caught the wind... I can imagine quite a few epic shots that I'm just dying to do!
