Kira キラ originally asked me to watch re:Zero so I could cosplay Elsa with her, but after watching it I really liked Crusch; I am a sucker for her kind of stoic character and military dress. After I made Elsa, I happened to find all the perfect materials for her so Kira excitedly gathered her Felix fabrics.
I hadn’t done a ton of research and didn’t realize there were two versions of Crusch’s outfit; the anime and light novel art. I had started to make the anime version and while looking for better pictures of her gold emblem, I discovered many more details from her light novel art. My version ended up being a combination of them both since it was already too late to incorporate some light novel details into my outfit.
