❝ It's a little sad isn't it? They bloom, then disappear. You'd like to see someone who'd died, even as a ghost. ❞
SOME INFORMATIONS- The costume making, wig styling and make-up were done by me. - *Mizukishou as Aika Fuwa 絶園のテンペスト -「Winter School Uniform」 - photograph: graubi - photography edit: :deviMizukishou:
I proudly present you my current absolute favorite picture of my Aika costume. The picture was floating around in my head for months . . . I watched the series with my Hakaze-chan when Aika uttered this incredibly, beautiful quote at the final episode. "The beginning is the end, and the end is the beginning. Well then, let us begin again and to each their own tale." - The used, Japanese quote on my submission. Ah, I would like to take the opportunity and want to thank *chibinis-chan, who has taken her time to translate the English one to Japanese. Thank you, darling! You were my hero! (Like I said before: I love this character endless. I love her so much, it hurts! Forever one of my favorite waifus. *^*) Okay, back to the picture idea: Aikas quote cried out to be immortalized by me, hoho. I wanted to create a kind of epilogue for the series. All important elements should be integrated, so I choose symbolic ones. The wooden puppet; it was made by Hakaze while she was trapped on the island. It is the connecting piece, which she brought to Mahiro and Yoshino. And the caterpillar, the fragile butterfly. Mahiro once said: "Butterflies have always been said to carry souls of the dead or to bring bad omens." Yeah, so the catterpillar should represent Aika. I'm sure, that Aika was always watching over the trio all the time. *so many feels right now* ;^; *sob* Well, I have decided for the school uniform, because it was the last outfit in which she was seen alive. Her mobile phone should also be seen, because she canceled the date with Yoshino via SMS before everything ended in tragedy. She also mentioned this fact during the show. Hihi, I was able to bring all of my beloved ones on a final image. So happy.~ I'm really, really proud of this picture, also from an artistic view. Much love to my photographer, who has worked according to my instructions and made these images for me. *can die peacefully*
