"My specialty is tearing through flesh."
The second “Attack on Titan” cosplay that I did, Mikasa wasn’t much of a change from Eren. The biggest changes included a change in the shirt and hairstyle, both of which were easy to do with a new wig and utilizing a shirt that I’d used for other female characters in the past. I used fabric from Nippori to create Mikasa’s signature scarf.
"Thank you for being together with me. Thank you for teaching me how to live. Thank you for wrapping this muffler on me."
I was very happy to cosplay Mikasa as she’s one of the few female heroes out there who was both allowed to be strong and fiercely in love. Mikasa was difficult for me though, primarily because she’s quiet and reserved, but also extremely fierce. I’d like to redo elements or improve elements of her costume in the future, but for the short notice that I got, I am happy with the result.
