|Made in 2005/2006 for Lordi gigs...|
Copied from my cosplay.com account.
"I be the Lordi Psycho Batty!
~ the Monster-Rock band, of Finland: Lordi. (*ahem* they won Eurovision '06 *cough*)
~ Yes, they are Monsters, so, fans of the band become Monsters for the gigs too.
~ I started this costume begining of '06. Due to illness and hospitalization I didn't get time to complete the costume before Oxtober. To that gig, I only had the Top with logo, and scales down the back, I also had some bits on my skirt and face painted cloth on my face.
~ Since then, I have attached wings, a tail, chain, and others parts to the Skirt. I also made a mask, as the facepaint smuged everywhere by the time I got to the venue.
** I am a Bat, who one night, while hunting for food, got captured by Ox. While in his 'cage' I was torn apart by Kita. A kind lady, known as: Awa, lovingly sewed me back together, although not quite the way I was. Sadly, I am no longer that Bat, flying around the midnight skys, looking for food to feed my young. I am torn, battered, and unloved... did I forget to mention, I have to be kept chained so I can't halm others.. or most of all.... myself.
