Miles Edgeworth – Phoenix Wright Series

Edgeworth Name: Miles Edgeworth Series: Phoenix Wright Debuted: Anime Mid-Atlantic 2007 Status: Retired Notes Edgeworth started life as a off-white size 14 suit. I am a size 2. There was a lot of tailoring involved (not to mention a heck of a lot of dye). The hardest part of the costume is the cravat. There's no way to create those three layers of ruffles naturally, so you have to rely on some form of stiffener. The Objection! parasol is one of my own hand-painted creations. It was a PAIN to make because of the strange font that had to be replicated by hand. [gallery columns="2" orderby="rand" rel="lightbox" lightboxsize="large"]

Rock Lee – Anbu

Rock Lee (ANBU) Name: Rock Lee (ANBU) Series: Naruto (original) Debuted: AnimeUSA 2006 Status: Retired Notes The hardest part of this costume was not the mask, but the vest. My sewing machine started to die in the middle, so some of the seams are atrocious. The mask is made of paper clay and is quite light. Unfortunately, the elastic gives me a headache (I have a wussy head) so I can't wear it for long. The red squirrel that goes with it is by far my favorite part.

Rock Lee – 3rd Movie Version

3rd Movie Lee Name: Rock Lee Series: Naruto Debuted:Otakon 2006 Status: Retired Notes I debuted this the same day that the 3rd Naruto movie came out in Japan. No one knew who I was, and that includes my fellow Narutards. This costume was created by ripping apart my Rock Lee costume and inserting the stripes. I did have to make a new pair of legwarmers, because for some reason Lee's have no stripes in the movie. [gallery columns="2" orderby="rand" rel="lightbox" lightboxsize="large"]
