Character: C.C. - Code Geass (Artbook dress)
Costume made/modeled by Yaya
Photography by Silas of SAKS Photography [link]

Gaaaaaah such a gorgeous photo, I'm so happy with it! I need a Lelouch to take my hand!!! Or give me pizza.

This was shot in Copenhagen, Denmark, during J-Popcon where I was a Guest Judge! My first time working with Silas, who was wonderful and such a sweetheart, and got photos back to me in record time!!! There are more from this set, I will post some :)
Please check out his page and see his other amazing photos from the event and his fashion photography as well. So talented!!

Costume construction notes:
I made the templates for the butterflies and trim by cutting up the actual CLAMP artwork and sizing it up on the computer to myself. My friends Jessica and Megan helped me trace out the templates to make patterns, and together we transferred all the patterns onto fabric which I already cut and sewed into the skirts. Then I cut out all the trim and butterflies with a soldering tool, which took many days of breathing fumes and sore/burnt fingers. I also made the bodice, sleeves, hair pieces, choker, shoulder straps, petticoat... everything to complete this costume.

This is gorgeous. You might want to wear a breathing mask (you can get them at home depot) when you do your soldering. Those fumes can't be good for you, and cancer is not something you want to mess around with.

I love this Cosplay, what else can I possibly say YaYa?  The lighting and the dress go perfectly together!  So breathtakingly beautiful..  It had to be worth the painstaking process when you see this photo.  I absolutely think so, job well done. Mini Raves
