Portrait of a Killer

*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********

This is one of my favorite photos of Carmilla, taken by :iconthedreamerworld:

Simply by asking me to kneel down in front of a patch of reeds, Judy found an intense background for a portrait in midst a modern office building area. The lighting and colors in this shot are fantastic as well.

I really like how disturbing and not "pretty" I look in this shot. I thought that my makeup at NYAF, where this costume was debuted, was too "glamorous/pretty/sexy" and not "unappealing" enough. So for Anime USA, I went over the limit of what I personally find attractive in order to really sink into the villainous character of Carmilla.

I love your Carmilla cosplay! It's one of my favorites out of your set of cosplays!

What kind of clear string did you use for your bodice of the Carmilla cosplay? I am creating a cosplay that has an opening just like this and I wanted to know what kind of clear string did you use to control the chest opening. :)
