All the story begins in january 2010 when I found an unbeliveable beauty image of the great french "mangaka" Aurore a.k.a Black Cat.
Maybe a lot of people knows very well her incredible works, if no you can easily see theme here : [link]
I felt immediately in love with th main female carachter of the serie Pixie, called Elvynn: she is a beautiful and magical warrior that lives her adventure in a fantasy world.
I love her green smoked hair, her sword,her outfit and her kindness, but overall I loved her in this special illustraiton.
Just because this is the only image available of her in this suit, I asked Aurore if she could help me with rest and expecially for the back; she was really really kind and send me some sketches that helped a lot for the making of .
So I decided to make this costume and to show my work directly to Aurore during Japan Expo (Paris) 2010, where we had the chance to take some pictures togheter.
I was able to do the whole shooting for Elvynn only few weeks ago, in a suggestive Italian Fantasy location, trough the wood and a dismissed castle...
in next days I'll upload some previews picture ( including with the back decoration as in the illustration) of the set that will be available on my site at the end of July...I really hope you enjoy this preview ^_^
