A: Ahiru (Princess Tutu)- Although I loved this costume, walking around NYCC with a pancake tutu is not ideal. Plus, one of the straps holding my top up decided to snap halfway through the con so I had to constantly make sure my boobs weren't exposed. It is also the first cosplay which I have had to actually hot glue while I was wearing it, and as a result left me with burns T.T
