Let me say that this is a beautiful cosplay of Lestat. The hair is perfect and the suit is well designed. It looks just like the clothes that he wore on the film. The attitude posed here perfectly exemplifies the true nature and attitude of the Brat Prince. The background of this is marvelous and the photography was beautifully shot. Actually I would like to know where this was shot in and how long did it take you to make this well-crafted outfit. It would be cool if you did a Louis cosplay since he too is a great character of the Vampire Chronicles.
Great work!! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

OMG where do I even begin! LOVE THIS! This is by far my favorite that you have done, and what caused me to come to your page.

Excellent work, every little detail is perfect. I would have mistaken this pic as a still from a movie shoot.

Lestat is the "brat prince" of the Anne Rice vampires, and he is very fond of this name, he is very vain and takes pride in his appearance. This picture just conveys this brilliantly. Lestat has curly blonde hair down to just about his shoulders and grey eyes that often look blue or violet. You pulled this off no problem. He also fingernails that could be described as glass, and it looks as though yours are buffed to a shine. I love the fact that you take such pride in your work to look at even the tiniest of detail.

The costume is exquisite! Lestat is always on top of fashion, and often dressed up. I love this outfit. You look like you just stepped out of the movie. All that's missing is top hat. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I cant say enough how much I love this cosplay. Excellent work.

First off I'd like to say that this costume is amazing and I thought you could pass of as a Lestat double. You captured Lestat very well in this. I also like to commend you on your choice of where to shoot this. It added to the likeness of Lestat. Even though this is just a photo I can feel the emotion that you put in this (if that makes sense). Overall though this is a fantastic photo and a GREAT cosplay of Lestat, the best one I've seen yet. You should try to do Louis some time as well I am sure it will turn out as excellent as this. I can compare you more easily to Lestat since I just watch the movie again about two days ago. Now I am wishing you could make either a photo of you and Louis together or Lestat drinking someones blood. That would be really awesome. But I would really like to thank for doing this particular photo because again...it look so amazing. If I could hug you right now I would. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/h/h…" width="38" height="15" alt=":hug:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="160" title="Hug"/> This is fantastic and I could say that...forever.

What a beautiful piece this is. This photograph really captures the character.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Form: The way you cosplay Lestat is like his character from what I have read about him. The way you you position yourself with your hands gently, but intriguingly interested in whatever you are looking at, really gives a powerful vibe of interest and wanting/lustful.
The way you have your head position is perfect to the vibe of this piece. It demonstrates concentration and prying notions with the eyes and mouth. Also how gently the head is above the hands, is perfect. It, again, really plays on the concentration and prying, but yet lusting notions of how you want to present the character.
The 3/4 body and head position is a great move. This is because if you were to do a side view it would only give a feeling of looking, but not thinking or plotting since we could them only see one hand more than the other, same for the eyes, we wouldn't be able to see how evilly they gaze. If there were to be a full on perspective, it would show everything with no imagination of "What is he thinking?"; "What does he want to do?"; "What is he looking at?", it will show more of a a psychological mood more about himself and himself thinking about himself.
The perspective is great also. This is because it is not too exaggerated-bird's eye or worm's eye-view where the intention of the piece is not lost by the body form and not found in the eyes or face. And again the perspective creates the 3/4 view that really digs into the thinking and analysis of whatever is being looked at.


Face: Your facial expression is truly grand. It captures the way this character is. It shows high interest, but plotting something evil. This kind of face is played so well in the way you have your mouth slightly open and trying not to smile and stay focuses on what you are looking at. Also you mouth creates an atmosphere of lust in this piece. You demonstrate that something somewhere in the distance is what you want and have to have it. It is like the photograph was taken while you where panting. I love that. It really gives an intense race of the heart, whether something bad or nothing will happen.
Where then your eyes, oh how beautiful they are, they just gaze so menacingly, but intrigued at whatever is in your visual focus range. Such beauty and power from them. The way you eyes are, go hand and hand with your mouth form.

Lighting: The lighting in this picture is absolutely gorgeous. It gives a viewer a full on look at your body and facial expression with little shadows that are intense and contrasting to the rest of pigments. That is fantastic, but I feel that if this were to be taken at night and used some flashlights for dramatic lighting, the picture would have had a better atmosphere for the interested, but evil lustful look. Though this open light all around, does add to chilling mood of this piece. And this is why...You were able to demonstrate such a tone of lust, interest, and wonder, that being in the open leaves one vulnerable to suspicion. Where then this creates a wonder about this piece of someone else seeing how the character is behaving in the open with people and such and wonder what that character is doing.

Vision: How this picture was taken is genius. The background is out of focus so the character will be in a great move. This is is because we an focus on his psychological thinking and analysis and plotting of whatever is being looked at and get into the mood of evil lust and ideas, high interest, and wonder of what is ahead of the character. Also with the unfocused background, "could there be a person hidden by the character in the foreground?", is the a great question that is generated from this perspective and vision of the piece. Perfect.
========================================
Overall Review/Miscellaneous Information: I love this piece to death, it is one of my most favorite photographs I have seen. You know how to capture the atmosphere of the character greatly. Wonderful work and will love to critique and see many more of your photographs good sir. Enjoy your day and if there is any offense taken in the critique made, I apologize.
