Carmilla's Rage by yayacosplay Carmilla's Rage by yayacosplay
Yaya's Facebook [link]

Photography by Bryan Humphrey

Character: Carmilla - Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Costume made and modeled by Yaya Han

Costume construction notes on my website: [link]

What can I say about this shoot with Bryan? This is our first chance working together and the man is a magician with lighting. I have always wanted to do a night shoot with my Carmilla costume, cuz, duh, she is a Vampire. Getting ready took about 4 hours this time because I wanted to get all the details right about the makeup.
This shot sums up everything I love about cosplay, from the craftsmanship aspect to the accompanying makeup to the fun of getting in character. I did my best to hiss at the camera haha.

More photos coming soon! Thank you, Bryan, for the amazing experience and Matt and Monika for assisting with lighting and placing my skirts!

I would never guess someone would actually make a cosplay of carmilla.
Your cosplay is incredibly outstanding just by wtahcing it. The clothes are so freaking near the what we see in the movie... if not... really Faithfull to it.
The costume is really well made.
Congratulations. This is tehmost surprising cosplay I have ever seen. With all my Honesty!
