Aki:Black Rose of Duel Academy by SorceressCassandra Aki:Black Rose of Duel Academy by SorceressCassandra
"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! :blushes:

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!

Pre-Series Aki Izayoi is cosplayed by Myself
White school uniform shirt was borrowed from my friend :iconkaia-of-the-wind: Thanks again! I'm so sorry about that. ^^;

Awesome cosplay ^_^ Do you have an 'end of series outfit' cosplay?? O_O Will we ever get to see it, if you do? Because it sounds awesome! I loved Aki's outfits in the finale.

Yeah, the wind was awful that day. I even had to pull a Marilyn Monroe so many times to keep my skirt from blowing up!


But knowing this version of Aki, she probably just came back from a duel that torn half of Duel Academy apart. ;p

Very nice but with a hair a little messy it looks like you got up late for school and didn't have time to do your hair

Yeah, the wind was kinda terrible. It even blew my skirt up!!:blushes:

But I kinda liked this windswept look as it looks like Aki just came back from a crazy duel.

You look so pretty! ^-^

Not to mention, I always love your little quotes that
you type for all your Aki cosplay descriptions. They are
beautifully written.

I did not notice the eyebrow pencil makeup until I read
it in your descriptions....of course I would have noticed it
right away. I just always read then look. ^^; I've been working
on my Aki cosplay & I’m also going to do that same method too for
my eyebrows. I have dark hair so it would look odd for me. ^^;
And false eyelashes are always an wonderful touch for
that anime look. I probably won't need them myself since I've been told
I have large eyelashes by eye doctor and ppl in general. ^^; @_@

Beautiful work as always and it's nice to see you
in your Aki Academy clothing. It's one
of my favs. :D Awww, and I found it awesome ppl called
you :Queen of Queens" obviously from the 5D's manga. :)

I look forward to more of your wonderful work! ^-^ :hug:
