I started this cosplay three weeks before MatsuriCon on a complete whim, because I just really really was going through a nostalgia phase (and still am) for Neopets! I ended up competing with it and received an award for best masters! I was really shocked and happy! Despite that, I really want a new wig for it, I hate how mine came out. XD
Anyways, Neopets was my childhood, I adore it so much. I still have masses of Neopets merchandise and all my games and cards and such. Naturally, I won't be stopping at just the Space Faerie. In fact, next on my Neopets list are Jhudora and Fyora. I started Fyora last summer but never quite had the motivation to finish it. Space Faerie was somehow very easy for me, ironically. XD Jhudora, also, I think will be a blast to make, I'm looking forward to it!
I also ran into an Illusen cosplayer while I was there, so look forward to when I post the photos that I got with her, because they were positively beautiful! ^_^
