Wearing hijab? what is so hard about that?

Q13. What is your most favorite Cosplan? Since cosplayers usually has a few Cosplans in a year, here you can tell which one is your most favorite cosplan and why
Most people love my take on Marisa Kirisame from Touhou Project and I do also really like this one as it is the first one that I made all on my own from design to propmaking. As for cosplans, I am currently working on a lolita version for Cirno from Touhou and have set a goal on doing Xie Lian from Tian Guan Ci Fu.
Q14: Do you also draw your own artwork?
Q15: Do you currently have a favorite Husbando / Waifu?
I don't have crushes... I do have characters I like, but not to the point to call them that... I currently really like Xie Lian, E'Ming(yes, a scimitar), Wei Wuxian, Chu Wanning, Yuyuko Saigyouji, Seiga Kaku. Yes... two of them are necromancers and there's a ghost in there as well. I like characters for their development and simply their personality. They all also either carry a bit of mystery or have a very daring yet just view on society. Except for the scimitar, I just love them for their personality ^^
