Costume made by me, for the skit "Carmilla's 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:

Opera! Yeah. What a good idea. I think this wouldn't look too weird as an opera...

I saw a film called Lesbian Vampire Killers in which Carmilla has the same kind of hair (shape and colour). Maybe this is where the film makers got their idea from. A British Horror Comedy that draws influence from on an anime.

Very beautifully done. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance that accompanied it also.

You look far better in that costume then the real character ;)

these costumes are awsome. i have just set up a site for costumes of a profesional standard called(cospro)for people that take there costume that one stage further. cosplay is moving on, its with people like our selfs that are making new ground. guest appearances/media coverage/new levels of costume making and design etc. its new at the moment but I have just set the site up temprorily for the moment and in time will be making it into something more appropriate. I hope this will revolusionise the cosplay world taking it from a underground sub culture in to the main stream. A friend of yours made me aware of your costume and I think it represents the new name 'cospro'

this is rather embarrassing question, but I have to know - how do you get your breasts/cleavage to stay like that? Either your bra is very well hidden or you're using another method?


This dress is GORGEOUS, I especially love the shoulder pads and sleeves.

Great version of Camilla, I think you do a good work in this one (like always) and make this looks really similar to the original.

This is awesome. If I had the time to devote to a project this big, I would cosplay as Carmilla. Props for the effort you put into this!

That's so sweet of you to say - and I work hard to make time for my personal costumes. Instead of taking days off to relax, I get up early to work on costumes till late into the night. Carmilla was made as 1 of 2 very big costumes within 5 weeks. Granted, I've gotten much faster at sewing and crafting in recent years, but I still put in many hours into this one.

aw man you were hree in my city?! I knew I shoulda gone to that show! Got a question for ya, how does that outfit work if your arms go down?

yayacosplay Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
I come to NY like once per year for that event lol

The shoulder pads snap on and move with my arms. They don't fall or anything. I can move surprisingly well in that costume, as you can see from the video. The only real hindrance is the 16 food floor dragging train.
