me and my friends were all planning on going to Daishocon and i was gonna go as Duke! I wish i could make my costume as epic as yours.
And sorry to hear that your suspending your Duke cosplay. But i see what you mean. It would get real annoying to always be expected to do things from The Abridged Series, when you want to go as the ORIGINAL character and what it was meant to be :/
Wow, your cosplay looks really awesome! ^__^ I was just wondering, what material did you use for the golden bracelets around your upper arm? They look really pretty but I just can't figure out from the picture what it is made of xD
