Well, I'd like to say hey to everyone, I'm new here. I've always liked Royai, but I think it was crack_alchemist's Games Without Frontiers that truly got me into the fandom for it. Before reading that story, I would have NEVER attempted to cosplay Riza Hawkeye. I had a fear of wearing a true blonde wig, it meant making another military uniform, and I just didn't think I could possibly pull Riza off. She can be quiet and subdued, but at the same time sexy and badass. But Games Without Frontiers really made me fall in love with her even more...and it totally inspired me to put aside my worries and just do it. So...in any case, I figured I'd share my Royai cosplay pics. Any smooching is genuine, that's my significant other doing Roy. Also...the costumes were both made by me, and yes...there are inaccurancies and they're FAR from perfect. Lots of pictures ahead, some sickeningly mushy, dial up beware!
I hope at the very least the pics made you crack a smile. By the US east coast convention, Anime Next, the costumes should be improved upon. (And if you happen to be going...be sure to catch the masquerade, we're planning a Royai related one) In any case, happy birthday crack_alchemist, thanks for bringing me deeper into this fandom!
