The Story:

Well... this one is very special to me.

It's been sitting in my wish list for a while and I've been thinking about this costume for even longer.

 

First, I love the Chrono Trigger game to death - and I don't really know why. I've always been a sucker for Squaresoft RPGs and this one is one of the first I ever played when I finally convinced my parents that getting me a SNES would not impact my school grades  :) 

 

Second, my 2 favorite characters were Frog and Robo... They both represent things I like - one for Fantasy, the other for Sci-Fi  :)

 

So when a project started with the Alliance Imperial girls - and they told everyone it would be about Chrono Trigger... I just couldn't resist and jumped in the bandwagon to be Robo.  Making this suit (and wearing it) sure was an adventure... I tried out a new building technique and I love the end result - however it is my most unconfortable costume to wear to date  :)
