Witch Hunter Robin

Robin was Alena’s second anime convention costume (waaay back in the day). It was long before any of us really learned how to sew, so the apron was constructed using a Days Inn button-repair kit, because it was the only sewing equipment she had in her apartment. The dress, shoes, petticoat and glasses were modified found items, and the pendant was made from a rock, a garbage bag twist-tie, and some nail polish. (Classy!)

Some years later, Alena pulled the ancient costume out of the bottom of the closet and wore it again at a convention, just for fun — and we did a silly little photoshoot featuring a special guest appearance by Monte Cristo Hakushaku.
