VAMPIRES! DEMONS! BACK TO HELL YE BEASTIES!!!!

*MONKEY SMASH!*

OMGZ! THEY IZ DUN! LIEK WOWZ! *dies*


Even though these outfits partially killed the two of us (myself and Nocturnal-Blossom) we both agree it was a great learning experience from it. We've learnt so much and it has completely boosted our confidence at cosplay making. There are still outfits that seem impossible to make, but there are certain outfits that before making these we would've thought were completely out of our league, but now they feel just a little more closer! ^^

(Ps. We got given hats for making cosplay! - Lulz)

The makeup looks very French aristocracy to me. With the pink cheeks, defined lips and definitive mole... but it could be anything! I shall look forward to this!

Actually serious suggestion - Memoirs Of A Geisha? The make-up nearly looks like that if you applied more, although not sure why you would need all those flowers for that.

Hope you aren't going to wade into a lake in those pretty dresses.

Saw the photo's by chance and followed back. That frock is splendid, so nice to see the effort and material put into it. People so often try to skimp. Defo shades of steampunk to the outfit.
