"When I began thinking of him as I fell asleep, I stopped having nightmares. I began to look forward to seeing him. For the first time since I arrived here, I was happy."
So again, I bought the outfit for this one EXCEPT I DID make the WINGS. These wings I love… and it’s a shame that they mostly just SIT IN THE CLOSET now. >< Ugh, seriously, need another reason to wear her again. (My first set of photos went up in smoke after a hard drive malfunction… OTL… so yeah, more photos are clearly needed). In any case, the wings were a fun project and I love the fact that they’re mostly sheer – so they look like they glow a bit, particularly in photos. I’ve gotten some requests for commissions of these types of wings but… unfortunately I have no time to do any (full time job woes). My apologies. 🙁 But give me a reason to wear her again and I’ll get more photos up for sure! ^_^
"I was just dreaming a little. About my old world. It's strange. In the dream, I wondered if everything here, in Aincard, if everything that had happened with you, was only a dream. I was really scared. I'm happy this wasn't a dream."
Gosh darn it I love this version of Asuna. Her red outfit is nice too, but idk, I feel like this is the moment where she really shines – where after all of the HORRIBLE stuff she goes through (anyone else feel physically ill that happened?) – here she’s flying free, and it’s amazing. So yeah, I really enjoy wearing this version of Asuna and I’m so glad my Kirito and I were able to do so many versions of her. I feel like each outfit she wears really brings forth a particular attribute of her personality. In this case, the fact that she’s “free”. She’s fun – very sweet, and just all around, kinda awesome. 🙂
