This is a picture of one of the two small photoshoots we had at Tsunacon 2013.
I wanted to have a picture of me alone as Miria, but there always has to be a part of Isaac with me! :D
My main improvement on the costume is my make-up. Still it needs a lot of improvement, because my eyebrows are still too yellow, I'm having a hard time finding the right colour.
I didn't use my brown contact lenses for this shoot (used my own eye colour), but I know see I should really use them in the future, my eyes look almost black in this picture! xD
More pictures from this shoot and the other Tsunacon-shoot will be uploaded soon!

Ever since I first saw Baccano! a few years ago, I fell in love with series. I always had a "thing" for 30/40's America (just look at a few of my other costumes Chrno and Baby Jane xD) and loved maffia-themes! So it sounded like the perfect anime for me and IT WAS! Baccano! is still my #1 anime after all these years and I don't see that changing soon!
When I watched the series for the first time, I really loved the characters Miria and Isaac, but the costumes from Czeslaw and Jacuzzi sparked my interest more.
Let's fast forward to now. I have been together with my boyfriend for 2 years and he had watched almost no anime at all when I met him (only the standard stuff that was on tv). So when we got together, I showed him A LOT (he also liked Baccano! very much). :3 I tried to take him to conventions with me. He also liked that, but still thought of it as "a little weird".
After almost 2 years of seeing al sorts of anime and having gone to around 4 conventions (and me trying to convince him to cosplay with me), he said to me that he thought cosplaying he was ready for cosplaying, but he didn't want anything "extreme" (like wearing a wig or huges robes etc.) AND he wanted to choose the costumes and characters! xD
His choice was Miria and Isaac in their costumes when they are on the train. I was a bit shocked, because those characters are very "outgoing" and I had to be a blonde woman with a very feminine dress (I cosplay as young boys most of the time).
I had 2 other shoots recently with these costumes, so look forward to more pictures! \^o^/

Thank you! ^^
I'll be uploading more pictures of this costume soon, so be sure to look every so often at my profile! :3 I uploaded this picture of the same dress yesterday: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3355683/
And I'll poke the photographer a bit, because I also have some full-body shots with this costume in which you can see the frills very good! OwO
