One of my favorite projects to date, this is my Shadow Lugia costume named "Midnight". First time I got to work with bodypadding and I'm extremely happy what it brought to the final look to give it a wonderful blend of anthropomorphism. It's encouraged me to want to go back and re-do my first few costumes because I'm convinced I could do them a lot better with this kind of look. Midnight won "Most Faithful Recreation" at A-kon 21.
