Portrait of a Killer by yayacosplay Portrait of a Killer by yayacosplay
*********** 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. :)

This costume is wonderful, jaw droppingly gorgeous.

What type of make up did you use to get tha wonderful skin colour and did you have problems with the make up rubbing off on the inside of the costume?
