Oh my goodness! Here it is!
This is the first time I have ever cosplayed Asuka and I have to say I am very pleased with the results. I'm so used to playing the character of Rei Ayanami that it was a challenge to display this character for me, however once I got into it I found that it was so much fun. Though she is not my favourite character of the series (I'm really loving Mari but that could just be my fondness for pink) and in the beginning I actually hated the character but in the rebooted movies I'm begining to warm up to the character as her arch continues and you see more than an angry, self righteous character. She's dynamic, feisty and a fighter, going after what she wants without questions asked, which is admirable in certain circumstances. 

Jim McAvoy did an amazing job yet again with this creation and after a close call with a fainting spell (that was fun) we managed to rally and pull off yet another wonderful body painting experience. His photography and artistry has amazed from the beginning and it's such an honor to act as his canvas as he conitnues to grow with skill and accept challenges. Head on over to his page and be sure to watch, :iconoldmacman:

Also a big thanks to :iconshelle-chii: for lending me her wig and her clips. This was the only to second time I cut and styled a wig permanetly and I;m very happy that the bangs turns out at the right length and style for Asuka. She's definately who is to thank for me being able to make the cosplay complete.  Head on over to her page to see some awesome asuka cosplays along with many others!

In the coming week I will be revealing the other two pilots, check out the preview and let me know who you want to see!

Until next time, much love, 

<3 Frinda
