Oscar and Andre by aimeekitty Oscar and Andre by aimeekitty
Well, I'm sick right now and so tired lately! So no new drawings. Instead you'll have to do with some older cosplay pictures.

This is one of my all time favorite costume photos. It was taken by my friend Godly. It's me as Andre and my good friend AJ as Oscar from Rose of Versailles. Only for this would I wear white pants (ha ha.)

You'll notice that the royal blue jacket is the same one I wore for my circus outfit recently.

Rose of Versailles is one of my favorite anime/manga and the Takarazuka stage adaptation is so romantic. We are doing versions of the 2001 Takarazuka performance here. We went to Japan together to see this performed (in '06 I think?). These costumes (and that performance) are featured in my book "Japan Ai: A Tall Girl's Adventures in Japan", too. So they're very special to me.

wow! your cosplays are VERY well done, you put a lot of thought into them!
heh, I've had the idle thought of learning Japanese, but, considering how different it is from the European type languages...
Both of you look stunning!

O-O
Why did they not include this in the special pictures on the website? X3
Your costumes are both so amazing! I will most definitely have to watch the anime and read the manga.

They're so awesome and that part of the comic was so awesome that I'm sure everyone would want to see it. :3

I loved these costumes from your book. It's nice to see an actual photo of them. Magnificent work.
