Yep, I finally finished one of the cosplay of my dream :)
A luxurious, gorgeous, pompous Bloody Countess Carmilla. I fell in love with her image at first sight a long time ago (almost 10 yrs since I've first saw "Vampire hunter D movie") and decided that some day will make this wonderful costume. Work on it lasted for three years, with long intervals. Some parts of the costume was reworked in it's details, because they was not good enough to me.
Since I, as usual, did not fit within the terms of tailoring, some small things still to be finished, but in general, the image is complete.
Unfortunately, the train of the dress didn't hit the lens. Its length - 11.5 meters (about 12.8 yards) is very heavy, so I had wears it only to exit the stage. A piece of video can be viewed here…

This costume is so perfect!! Everything is spot-on Camilla!

How did you make the shoulder things?

I want to make this costume one day, but can't figure those shoulder out!

Amazing dedication! :rose:
Wow.. Spot on and frightening!
Loved that second movie. Really put the first to shame IMO, but the first was still awesome.

TBH I was beginning to wonder if I was the only person that ever saw Bloodlust... I swear its so rare to find out anyone even knows it exists! As such I treasure that DVD... The music, the sounds.. the entire movie is a pure work of art! And Carmilla's castle... 

In any regard, you've captured her look very well. And given the rarity of such a costume, its unbelievably well done!
