Fiamatta Asto Capulet
Series: Romeo x Juliet
Debut: NDK 2007
I've been a fan of Romeo and Juliet
in any and all forms since high school, when the old Romeo+Juliet
came out, and we happened to be studying it at the same time.
I still can't help hoping when I'm watching it that they might -
this time! - just make it! ;_;
So when Gonzo came out with their version - which seems to have
little to do with Shakespeare's story other than the names...
however, there's a very Escaflowne-ish feel to it that I love - I
snapped it up and fell in love with another starcrossed
couple. Juliet is my favorite character, and while she's been
changing a lot, she's very strong behind everything!
When I found the PERFECT wig in a Inara's closet and she gave it to
me, I knew I had to do one of the
costumes. I'm really fond of her peachy-colored everyday
dress. I like the small details like the neckline, as well as
the overall simplicity. Most of the ensemble is linen, all trimmed in khaki bias
tape, and was very easy to wear and dress in... about the only
costume I wore to NDK in which I could dress myself. XD
The second part to this was calling up my friend Einlanzer about two
weeks before the con and going, "So, hey. There's this
character in Romeo x Juliet with assbelts and two swords. It's
Tybalt. If I make it, will you wear it?" And the rest is
This costume made it's debut at NDK 2007, with Einlanzer as
Tybalt. ^^ Also, Dahlia as Romeo.
