Uno from Gilgamesh

Gilgamesh isn’t the world’s best anime but I actually really like it. I enjoyed the story and characters, and the ending is one of my favorite anime endings of all time.

This group was master-minded by Ziggy, who was inspired by a group of Japanese Gilgamesh cosplayers he saw at Comiket. He started recruiting and of course, I couldn’t resist the lure of being really well-dressed cannon fodder.

I don’t even know how long these costumes took because we started really early, and still ended up cramming at the end. Why does that always happen? Each of the girls’ dresses is a custom fit job with 75-80 buckles per person. It was kind of insane how many buckles we used and how late we were up attaching them to the costumes.

The end result was worth it though because we looked really really cool all together.
