Franziska was supposed to debut alongside Phoenix, Mia and Maya (when all three had their costumes ready for the first time, too), but had to be delayed a little bit because it's the first one I made entirely by myself! Aaaaand, that took quite a while. But I was quite proud of it in the end! I made a lot of mistakes while making it, but, obviously also learned a lot! That’s how it goes.
Franziska was my second Ace Attorney costume, and it’s then I decided to make one costume from this series every year, if possible! I just love so many characters from this series. As with Olga Orly, I had a handful of really amazing friends to be with for this group. Franziska is such an interesting character! I simply love playing firey, temperamental women, can’t help it!
I personally think I look a lot like the character. Also, many pictures here are from one of my favourite photoshoots. AkatsukiSky really, really got some nice shots, very in-character. I look super bitchy ;)
In 2014, I got to wear this old costume again to be part of Con Turnabout, a group of panelists / actors / cosplayers who make plays out of original trials set in the Ace Attorney universe, with crossovers from other series:
