As a huge fan of Type-Moon's Fate series, when Fate/Zero came out, I fell in love with Irisviel. She's so compassionate and kind, while still being determined to stand by her loved ones at all costs. Plus there's an almost delightful childishness to her nature due to never leaving Einzbern castle and only having Kiritsugu to teach her about the world, which greatly endeared her to me.
Making this costume was pretty simple, and it's one of the comfiest ones I own, so wearing it was really easy! Plus I had a great time getting photos with my friend Maridah's Saber. The only thing I really had any trouble with was the wig - this was the first heat-resistant wig I had ever purchased, and I found out that teasing them for volume and getting them to stay takes a LOT of work, lol! By the time I was done with Iri's wig, my whole bathroom was coated with layers of hairspray. Yuck! XD
