And the story...

I was searching for various Ranka outfits when this one caught my attention: I just immediately loved this cute design. I hadn't done any Christmas cosplay for years, and I decided to go for it.
I must say, I do not like how this costume looks on me very much... I think my bodytype is too different from Ranka's to have this design look really good on me! Plus, the dress seemed easy to make, but in fact, I made it two times because I was not satisfied of my first try. And in the end, I'm not really happy of my second try either ^^; But I enjoyed wearing it anyway, and I love the pics of the photoshoot ^^ We did it on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, very early on the last morning before they remove all the Christmas lightings and stuff. The only thing I regret is that I had to do the shooting alone, because all the friends who wanted to make the other Ranka and Sheryl santa outfits with me did not make them in the end. Well, this certainly won't prevent me from sewing more Ranka outfits in the future! ;)
