I was so happy when Funimation announced that they had re-licensed Escaflowne! I had wanted to watch it for the past few years but couldn’t due to it being out of print. I watched the film and 2 days later I went back and purchased the tv series. I fell in love with the series instantly and a week after finishing it, I re-watched the whole thing! This series means so much to me and Yoko Kanno’s “The Story of Escaflowne” gets to me every single time and I cry every time I watch the final episode! I love all the characters and their designs, but I opted for Merle since she has such a strong will, isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and is a cat-girl! My favorite thing about this costume would probably have to be the tail since it’s so fluffy and soft! I was so surprised with how many people recognized who/what I was cosplaying from and it made me very happy when several people asked for my picture and talked about Escaflowne with me!
