Just before PAX East this year, I did something ridiculous. I made myself a new bag from a pattern I had never used before just two days before the convention.

Last summer I decided I wanted to cosplay Marin from Hyrule Warriors Legends. She’s originally from one of my favorite games, Link’s Awakening, and her updated design for the new game is fantastic.
