I've been cosplaying for about a year and a half, doing my best to learn more and more. The character featured here was one of my favorites as of recently, so when I saw this version of her, I had to make it into cosplay!

These photo's were taken at my new favorite convention, San Japan, in San Antonio on the Waterway. We were able to shoot in an around the water, which ended up with some very interesting shots!

Maka is a very strong, vibrant, skilled technician in the Soul Eater universe. In the Manga, after the series splits off in events from the anime, the character gets a new uniform, which is featured here: the Spartoi uniform. I don't want to give away too many details, but Soul Eater, her weapon, also gets a revamp on his design.

Construction details:

Cosplay - I modified a trench coat pattern, quite a bit, for the jacket design. It is fully lined, thank you, and very comfortable. I wanted to make sure it was easy to take on and off, and that I would also be able to wear the cosplay without the jacket as well. I was so damn happy with the final result. Even though it doesn't make me look really tiny, it was very comfortable, and seemed to fit very well.

Wig - Wig? What wig? I used my own hair for this cosplay too ^_^ I got a bleach job and a bit thicker bangs. I'll probably be keeping my hair like this for a little while too. I just love being Maka that much! To be honest, the whole deal was much more expensive than a wig ever would have been, but I think it was worth it. Pig tails are hard to do with a wig.

I cast little skull clips for her hair. That was fun. Deathscythe Soul was a made of layers of Sintra, covered in bondo. All of the detail that you see, other than the pole, is made of Sintra (with bondo cover, if needed). Painting this scythe was a blast. I'll need to get it clear coated I think xD.

I already have 2 other Maka cosplays I'm going to be doing. I completely broke Soul Eater on the way home from Ohio, so there is damage to repair, but the scythe itself is still in good condition.
