Armand and Claudia




Costume Information

Joining the group, Emi told me there is no Armand so I jumped at the chance to be my favourite vampire lad.

Looked into Victorian fashions from around the time, done some quite extensive research. Also looking into getting some jewellry from the time period. This could set me back but I intend to go the whole way with this one, been something I've been waiting for years.


Now have some lovely shoes to go with the outfit. I have a blue waistcoat, got my wing collar shirt and necktie, need some good trousers. I also have some gorgeous cufflinks.

Wig is on its way, as are my veneers.

I have the honey contacts!

Ok, so I am also practising the character, and altering my voice for October. Will keep practising the makeup styles I will be using too.

I have now spend 2 full days like Armand. Practise makes perfect!
To be continued...

Hahah, I have the bonus of having a teenage body ;D, youthful vampire, but not quite as youthful as you, little lady.

........*tears in eyes* uuu.....don't remind me!! You ...FIEND!!

At least I can say I am the most intelligent 6-year-old of my time... not naturally of course.

wow...being this youthful has such downfalls.

This is true, perhaps your intelligence will win over my charms. Or perhaps we could share? We have eternity after all...
