How is Aiko already 19?!
It feels like just a couple of years since she was that gorgous little, black haired baby. And now she’s closing in on 20.
Yeah, me too. It's starting to make me feel old.
I dearly wish her an happy adult life, that she can make her own decision concerning her future. She escaped the crown's inheritance, so let's hope the Imperial Agency opens the golden cage a bit.
I see Linus of Lux's elephant trouser disease is catching.
I believe she is wearing hakama, which traditionally are worn by women to college ceremonies. It's a bit odd in that they appear to be brown rather than black, but I think that might be what's going on.
Yes, it looks like inspired by the black large hakama that a black belt Aidiko-ka wears. Hers looks less large though. Stéphanie's style indeed.
