Every time I look at your Balthier costume I'm amazed that you painted and stitched it all by hand! That must have taken quite the careful hand ^^' I can't wait to have Balthier-Fran photographs with you- roll on KitaCon!

Hey, MY BALTHIER!! *sigh* I don't know if I'm ever going to get away from the possessiveness of cosplaying the Fran to your Balthier, but one of these days I might just share you ^^ My big brother is such a great Balthier, and everyone is 100% correct, it's amazing, awesome, impressive, and well deserves a wink or two! (That and I couldn't help but comment again, I really do love this costume and can't wait to see your updated version which is going to blow my mind even more!)
