Marle & Schala share a similar heritage, with the fact that Marle has been passed down the pendant. My sister argues this point with me but I think they're related...somehow. o.O
Clearly I don't make my own costumes anymore. :V Actually, I totally do, but my habits of late have made me seem that way because like Jessica, this isn't my costume I'm wearing. Being a total idiot, when I went to Anime Iowa this year I remembered every bit of my Crono costume....save the tunic. D'oh~ But Miri let me wear her Schala. I was actually more astonished that I fit into it than the fact she let me wear it because if you knew her, generosity is Miri's middle name.
Now, I did make the fabric portions and the quiver of Dali-Lamb's Marle so I feel like less of a cosplay tick. This costume makes one feel like a Princess; it's so gorgeous so I feel fortunate that I got to model it. :3 Also, thanks to Avianna who patiently took some awesome photos of us with my camera. Much love to both! <3
