Madame Red

Series: Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)

Variation: Red Suit

Worn at: Colossal Con 2010, A&G Ohio 2010, Acen 2010

Motivation: I’ve have a love for lady villains and have always been fascinated by the history of Jack the Riper. So this was an obvious choice to make.

Construction: The under shirt is made with a white on white pattern cotton. The walking skirt, vest, and spats are made from red gaberdine I found on sale after the holidays. The skirt was patterned off historic walking skirts from the Victorian ages and lined in black cotton. The vest and spats are also lined in black and finished with bias tape. The wig was styled to lay flatter with tapered bangs,

Thoughts: For a simple costume to walk around it I am quite happy with it. The wig is a little to bright for my styling and I would like to soon take new photos with a different make up style.
