Variant: Vizard (Manga)

I decided to do this cosplay after Porkbuns IM-ed me asking what my cosplay plans for Otakon were and if I were wiling to do Hiyori for the Bleach Photo shoot on Saturday. After looking at pictures I decided that I did indeed want to cosplay her, plus it wouldn't prove too difficult since most of the items I already owned or could buy and alter existing clothing pieces.

She was a character I had never though about actually cosplaying yet I was rather excited by the prospect of doing so.
