If you know me, you know I was just waiting for the werewolf day to turn up! Since this is meant to be a horror themed challenge, I went with the transformation itself, the anguish of bone and sinew rearranging themselves, the fear of a change completely outside of the person’s control…
2000 was the only year I went to Anime Expo, which is kind of a shame, because it was quite fun. A couple of my friends were enamored of Fushigi Yuugi, and had decided to cosplay as characters from it, so I joined in.
Eclipse, created in 1999, was the first of my costumes to actually get a name. I’d been pretty fascinated with the werewolf costumes of Verdun Manor at the time, so I decided to try my hand at a horror-style mask.
So why was my 1997 costume a wolf and this one, made a year later, a werewolf? I’m not actually sure, but that’s always how I’ve thought of them. This one was designed to wear clothing though, so perhaps that has something to do with it.
In 1997, I finally got confident enough to try out a fully furred costume!
