I will be entering a competition with the transformed version of this costume! If you are interested, there is a livestream which can be watched worldwide!
Date: june 15th
Time: From 14:00 (2PM) Dutch time. (You can convert on this site to see at what time it will be in your country: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html )
The show will take around 2 hours. The winners will be announced around 16:30 (4:30PM), but it's uncertain if the announcement will also get a livestream. If it does, the stream will be on the same website!
Around 6-7 years ago I found out about Mecha Musume for the first time. Quite quickly I became a big fan of Humikane/Fumikane Shimada's artstyle! As a figure collector, I also started collecting figures from this genre and artist and after receiving my Elizabeth figure 3-4 years ago http://myfigurecollection.net/item/2136 she quickly became my favorite Mecha Musume character! Being a cosplayer for a while back then, I also wanted to make a costume of her! Unfortunately I was too afraid of the project because of the big, mechanical parts which I also wanted to make.
After 6 years of cosplaying I finally was brave enough to start on this project!
The transformed version of Elizabeth (with all the mechanical parts) is still a work in progress and can be seen here: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/459559/
The untransformed version of Elizabeth I debuted recently and I hope to place more pictures of it soon here!
