Another picture of this - though this one wasn't taken in a snowstorm, so some of the details are more visible.
The whole thing was made and worn by me. I have over five thousand words and one hundred photos that document the process of making this costume, which can be read here: doxiequeen1.wordpress.com/elsa…
This costume resembles something you'd see in a circus ring rather than on the infamously gruesome Vlad Tepes...but I still love it!
I had to use the heels on my shoes as climbing spikes to help me stay in this position. It was a touch awkward but completely worth it to get this stunning shot. This photo was taken out in East Marion LI/NY, it's a very wooded area and we managed to find a creepy forest with lot's of dead vines, moss, and rose bushes. It wasn't very pretty, but it made for a perfect backdrop against this gothic yet vibrant character. .
This picture shows off a little bit of my cape lining which I like! The cape is forty fabric strips sewn together to create the striped appearance. It was a huge pain to do and sadly it doesn't show very much on the finished costume This costume is made up of 18 yards of fabric and 48 yards of trim. It was crazy time consuming to make but didn't give me too much trouble, to see how I made it check out the blog post here: [link]
ALSO Oyari Ashito tweeted this picture on twitter with the caption saying "She is the real thing. Thank you so much for the beautiful work" then the official E*S twitter commented that I brought the character to life ;_; Dying of happiness I can't even.

Sort of disappointed with how these came out - since they were taken in the middle of a snow storm, there was no sunlight to show how sparkly this costume is. But I think they are pretty photos, even if they don't show all my hard work.
I sort of forgot DA existed? Oops...I've been active on tumblr, though!
I've posted a picture similar to this - but I have to post thing too, I love it SO much. I think everything about this costume i've said already.. It was a huge undertaking and ended up having a lot of problems, but I love it a lot.

I have to post this because oh my god that lighting. All of my respect goes to Anna Fischer on how stunning this picture is.
I would like to apologize for my face. It was 90 someodd degrees, 80% humidity, and I was wearing wool. Needless to say, my makeup melted off a little bit.
Everyone thinks I'm dressed as a pirate when I cosplay Napoleon, so I decided to go with it and get some photos on the USS constellation, which is docked in the Baltimore inner harbor. I had two shoots on the ship, one of them was a joint shoot with ~UxiCosplay (who is gorgeous and looks like a little doll, it was so nice getting to meet her.) Our costumes didn't match, but we did get some photos together which will probably be posted somewhere... eventually. And the other one was a half video/half photography shoot, which was more focused on the scenery than me, but that's okay, the scenery was more interesting than me.
I also got pictures outside and in front of the ship...lot's of ship related stuff here...I hope you guys like ships
Anyway! The costume is made and modeled by me, you can construction notes here: [link] or here: [link]

Fun story about this photo, my mother actual found this before me (think she has been stalking Anna's flickr because she seriously told me about it a few minutes after it was uploaded) and said: "Aw, Angie, you look so pale...and peaceful...like a corpse" Thanks mom. Because 'dead' was totally the look I was going for. My mother isn't the best at giving compliments...
This was my ridiculously detailed gown that I made the three weeks prior to katsucon. It was really stressful, and required a lot of time and hand sewing. All the cording, beads, hem, and trim were stitched on by hand and it took ages! Regardless I love this dress a lot and i'm pretty proud of it~
Photography by the perfection that is Anna Fischer. Costume made and worn by me. Character design by Sakizo. Taken at katsucon 2013.
This costume is my babbbyyy it took 22 yards of taffeta, over 1000 rhinestones, 20+ meters of trim, and 60 cameos/frames. Sewing this took around three months to make, and several weeks of planning prior to that. It was a huge learning process, and ended up having a lot of issues though I love it dearly Everything aside from the teapot was made/styled by me. My father made the teapot out of foam and wallpaper paste. I decorated it.
