Sephiroth - Quicksilver Storm by NanjoKoji Sephiroth - Quicksilver Storm by NanjoKoji
This is the proof that miracles actually happen. I had this costume lying around for three whole years. I never knew how to do the shoulder armour properly, so I never completed it. And I wouldn't have ever if not *FujimiyaRan would have made it as my birthday present. And that means everything, the whole costume (aside from the sword and the boots), it's all been done by her, I don't take any credit for it.
It turned out incredible. I can't believe how accurate the armour is. I love it. I just love it. I admire it.

So here goes my call:

Not in god in a religious way. The metaphysical definition of god is: the beginning. I don't know Iif I can bleieve in a beginning, because in the end, we never witnessed a beginning. Everything is just a result of something. As much as I thought about it, I don't remember a single real beginning in my life. Not even I myself have a beginning.
But that also means that I don't have an end. Maybe that's more of a solace than any religion could offer.

Back to topic. I'm not tagging anyone, but if you want to feel tagged, just go ahead and take your turn!

I hope to get a better shot of the sword soon, I seldom have cosplay weapons and this one is just so LONG! It's slightly longer than Sephiroth's original Masamune. I had it custom made for me three years ago. It doesn't deserve to be shut away.

I'll wear this costume on sunday at the Bookfair Leipzig. If you want to meet me that day, this is what you have to go looking for.
