So for NY Comic Con this year I decided to go as Kanji from Persona 4. I made the costume myself for about $20 or less altogether, & was great success.
Later on in October, Atlus held it's anual halloween cosplay contest (Altus-O-Weenie), & thought hey I made a costume for an Atlus character, I should enter.
I so posted it, & mostly forgot/ did just for shits & giggles. But then I get a call the other day on my phone saying that I had won the random lucky draw for 5th place.
It may not be 1st-4th, but it's still really awesome to see my hard work paying off, & $50 gist card to Best Buy ain't too shabby ether.
PRAISE THE SUN!!!
