Asuna is a heroine from Sword Art Online, and Santana Cosplay decided to craft a costume based on one of Asuna’s lesser known looks (you might recognize Santana from her human Sonic the Hedgehog costume). With this ensemble, Santana used an image of Asuna in a mecha wedding dress. The photo was featured in a Japanese Magazine as a promotion for Sword Art Online, and there was only the single image to use for reference.
Santana took on the challenge of recreating it and spent about six months working on the costume. The end result looks incredibly close to the ad featuring the character.
