Kaede in Kimono by EpicRacharaptor Kaede in Kimono by EpicRacharaptor
Given Lucy's history, I can't imagine she ever got the chance to try on a kimono as many young Japanese girls do. So her first time wearing one would be rather special, I think. Definitely something to grin over X3

Drawing her in a yukata had me thinking of drawing her in more traditional clothes, thus the creation of this. Just going with her typical hairstyle didn't seem right either, and I haven't really seen Lucy with a braid before. She's the sort who would wear a really loose braid too XD

Kaede looks so adorable in the kimono. I don't know how to explain, but it just fits her. >w<

My story takes place a couple of years (Maybe two) After the anime. Lucy escapes yet again. The first chapter is about her escape. Many allusions to the first episode and chapter from the manga are made.

She wears traditional Japanese clothing very well. Hopefully I can draw more of her in such clothes soon, when I have fewer projects left to finish.

Pretty Kaede... but at same time it's a little sad. So many things she wanted to do with Kohta....

Very sad indeed. She brought that tragedy on herself in regards to Kouta, but still...the poor thing :<
