SnK: I got soul... by Valdrein SnK: I got soul... by Valdrein
...but I'm not a soldier.

:iconweatherstone: - Photographer
:iconvaldrein: - Hanji Zoe

Series - Attack on Titan [Shingeki no Kyojin]

----

Attack on Titan is finally done!
I fell in love with the series while I was in Finland,
and started on my gear as soon as I got home.

There are some strap adjustments I want to make,
but over all I'm really happy I finished everything!

For Aki Con I made Hanji to go with my Levi :date:
and it was a lot of fun messing around with SCIENCE!
And doing our couple-y things because of feelings...

I really love Hanji in the same way I love Sasha,
both of them have very real fears and self doubts,
but they push forward with everything they got.

---
For those that haven't gotten into the series I do recommend it,
it really breaks the rules of stereotypical character types,
and the first opening will give you a boner.
Though be warned,
the manga art is a challenge to read... LOL,
NOT THE PRETTIEST THING YOU WILL EVER SEE!

Also,
Daz is the best character...ever.

This is amazing! You make a great Hanji! I love her so much her and Sasha are some of my favorites as well. I loved Hanji more once I'd read the manga.

oh my goodness I LOVE HANJI AHHH
did you make the 3D maneuver gear? i'm trying to make my own cosplay, my only missing thing is the 3D gear, and buying it would cost me $300 i would rather not spend

Valdrein Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013  Student Artisan Crafter
Yup, I made my 3D gear.
I had a lot of pieces already from past projects so it didn't cost me a lot.
But expect to spend at least $100 on it (assuming you already have all the tools needed)

....what part of you thinks this train has a boarding zone...once you get on you don't get off and we don't stop....

Unless you need to poop desperately...

That should probably require stoppage....

Don't poop on my train Val.

Aah, you make a wonderful Hanji :heart:

And dat manga art. I like reading the manga, but sometimes the art makes it hard even if it conveys emotions better than the anime at times.

the only problem is the art is so bad you can't tell which character is who half the time, HAHA!
