Wondering. by cupcake-rufflebutt Wondering. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Character: Reki from Haibane Renmei
Seamstress/Model: Tess [cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography/Editing: Kevin Chan [solartempest]
Location: Katsucon 2011

Construction Notes:
If you like thoughtful, metaphoric, dark (yet sincerely heartfelt) anime, I really cannot recommend Haibane Renmei enough. To date I find it one of the most haunting and profoundly beautiful shows out there, and I hope to push at least a few more folks in its general direction whilst uploading photos of my Reki costume. <3 If you'd like to read more about the construction of this costume, please check out my previous uploads!

Special Request:
Please no critiques/criticism; I'd like to keep this gallery happy! :3

Wonderful costume. Great location too.

I have to agree that Haibane is such an amazing show. ABe does such great work. By any chance have you read the book "Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World". The similarities between it and Haibane are kind of neat.

I do not know this character but I love this look! (are you a smoker? or is the character a smoker?)

The character is a smoker. Those are theatrical cigs that puff fake "smoke." :D

Reki is a smoker. Quite regrettably, but it really adds to her character.
I hope she stops it later.
