My friend Gia works as a reporter for Anime Vice, she used to live in the area, but recently moved to California to be closer to the 'Vice' main office. She knows a little bit about everything going on in the anime world, it was really cool to get a chance to hang out with someone who can drop science on you like that.
Last year we did a series of videos together documenting the making of a Sheryl Nome costume I was sewing for her. We were hoping to do something more complicated, but I was working on three costumes for Sakura-con at the time and the convention she hoped to wear it to was only a month and a half away, so we kept it simple.
So here are the videos that came out of that...
And as a nice bonus for me, here's a video of Gia wearing the costume while interviewing people. And having her picture taken.
Check out Gias website, it really has a lot of awesome stuff.
