This is one of my favorite photos of Carmilla, taken by
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.
