Best. Convention. Ever!
All thanks to the wonderful cosplayer in the Forest Spirit costume. The Forest Spirit won best Creativity. Somehow I won best Masters, which still seems weird to me. I guess the 130 hours of hand embroidery paid off.

Basic Summary: About 180 hours to complete. Every piece of clothing is made of period accurate material. The hat was made out of bamboo by me. The Tabi are also bamboo covered with silk. The fans were all hand embroidered (about 130 hours total). Very hot and heavy, but the most comfortable cosplay that I've made to date. XD
Update: Holy crap! I have been featured on Cosplay in America's Facebook! Super awesome. XD [link]
