"I don't want to get married, I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset."
(My favourite quote by King Fergus)

My masquerade entry for Otakuthon 2013 in Montreal. I won "Best in Character" in the Journeyman division.
I never had time to press my seams before the convention and you can really see it on this photo... *sigh* It annoys me to no end...
This photo was taken in the Old Port of Montreal and TONS of tourists actually stopped to get a picture with me, so we got surprisingly few pictures done as a result... lol
I am sad to say that, because of my work, a lot of things were rushed on this cosplay. My quiver and arrows are held together by mostly hot glue. However, I love my choice of fabrics. The dress is a highland wool serge (how much more perfect could you get for a tomboyish, Scottish princess?) and the cape is really thick coat wool. Needless to say, I was dying of heat. But it was well worth it.
