Another cosplay shot! This costumes are taken from the illustrations of the Japanese artist Sakizo (~sakizo
on DeviantArt – or visit her website [link]
Me as Chou à la crème (left) and my friend Kinnara
as Kouglof from the artbook Girl meets sweets
by Sakizo-sensei. Yes, they’re personifications of sweets!
The creampuff for me and the kouglof (also spelled kugelhupf) cake for Kinnara.

The costumes are hand-made from scratch as usual: mine was done by ~suzaku3
and me (and the help of her father for the crinoline cage), while Kinnara has made her dress and props all by herself, and did also make my lovely fake profiteroles. The little corner of insanity: Kinnara has even woven her golden lace by herself, while I've painted all the stripes on my bows. @___@ Please download for a better view on the details!
Gorgeous photo taken by ~stregatt0
: we’ve had a shooting in an elegant cafeteria in Florence and it was a total blast! Enjoy the whole of the set with our Sakizo group of four on Facebook [link]

^____^ What else can I say? Those costumes were quite a challenge, but we cannot say we haven’t enjoyed ourselves losing our minds with all those laces, trims, details and tricky bits, and we hope you may like the result. Going out wearing cakes on the head and huge crinoline cages was also quite hilarious!
A huge thank you to our photographer!!
