layer : Midori Kanda
character : Itsuki Myoudouin / Cure Sunshine
series : HeartCatch PreCure !
score : *****
time for some gorgeous eye candies following our [ recent ] continuous series of text-laden first impression posts. and besides, if i remember correctly there has yet to be any feature on mahou shoujo cosplays here, [ ibara-san's teana lanster-get does not count as its just a single image feature-post ] so hopefully this would be the start for the many others to come soon.
i bet a lot of you out there has already been familiar enough with the long running precure franchise, and here, is a character from one of its many series; to be precise, she's itsuki myoudouin from the ongoing heartcatch precure ! which is still airing by the time this post get submitted. and much to our delight, midori-san has once again shown how flawless she can be with both her craftmanship [ i firmly believe that she made her costumes herself, as recorded on her blog ] and her ability to pull of an excellent match up with any characters of her choice.
albeit her costume were delightfully conceived remarkably close to the image of the original design [ she even managed to secure the color scheme well ], still a [ very, very ] minor off-point are still present here; the flowers on the ribbons which ties her twintails didn't quite match with those of the original design. nevertheless, it still is a good cosplay to boot and said minor off-point aren't critical enough to deal noticeable dent on our rate over her glorious itsuki-get :3
