  1. Why did you choose this cosplay?
    At the time I really loved playing in my Rozen Maiden suitcase I had made for another character costume from the previous year, And although I don't like the character on screen, she was so fun to act out as a child who pouted, cheerfully shouted, acted shy around new people, and would lay on the ground to draw pictures.
     
  2. How long did it take to complete?
    The costume took me about a week and the box took me about a week.  
     
  3. What was the hardest part when constructing it?
    Trying to find the right size box.  I happened to come across a stack of Rack Servers sitting in the hall at work, and I waited months for the servers to be installed before I could grab a box (that were going to be recycled) to take home.  Trying to explain to my coworkers what I was doing with a giant box without sounding crazy wasn't easy either
     
  4. What do you love most about this cosplay?
    I didn't realize at the time of making this outfit, but after the first day in this costume at a convention I found it hilarious to pretend to be mad and go hide in the box and shake my fist and con-goers as they walked past me.  And then I would randomly pull out a box of crayons, spill them all over the convention floor, and start scribbling caricature of cosplayers.  Even the voice actor of Lord Z (Power Rangers) had to come by, pat me on the head saying "Your Cute" and walked off.
