I had been talking with Lauren around September of 2010, whom had recently finished watching Last Exile. I had seen it a few years prior and had loved it. When asked ifI would want to form a Last Exile group with her, there were no questions about it. Everyone fell into their characters perfectly, each and every one of us had a character we wanted to be and the natural order of things came into place. Erin needed some convincing, but I knew she'd make a perfect Lucciola. And after watching the series, she agreed. This shoot was my first big group cosplay and I couldn't have had more fun with it.
