Photo by Anna Fisher, taken at New York Anime Fest 2009 during the Yume Cosplay Contest.

Costume made by me, for the skit "Carmillas Bloodlust" (based on the anime "Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust) performed by Klytaemnestra and me.
You can see a video of the skit thanks to Chibiplum here:

That's an IMPRESSIVE costume--the award was definitely well-earned! :)
I also couldn't help but notice what pretty white makeup you were wearing too. I'm considering doing a cosplay soon where I need to paint my entire face white, and I want to get makeup that will really turn my skin white, not just pale-er, and stuff that also won't rub/sweat off.
Any suggestiong?
P.S. Here's the picture of the cosplay I want to do. Suki from Avatar! :D

Thank you so much! Try Ben Nye water or creme based white makeup. And look up tutorials on applying makeup smoothly, such as on google. Good luck with the costume and have fun!

I think you lent the character just the right amount of frightening personality with your skit - she is portrayed as a terrifying woman, and that's just hard to do! Plus, you guys kept an element of surprise in it. I knew Charlotte would get bitten but when you revealed those giant fangs before biting Anna I was literally like "JESUS! She's got TEETH!?" haha
It takes a lot to move an audience, especially from the screen of their computers, but by golly you did it!
