The Rose of Versailles: Marie Antoinette by Yiji The Rose of Versailles: Marie Antoinette by Yiji
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile
Still stays on


:iconyiji: as Queen Marie Antoinette
:iconrayfy: Photographer (RAY OF THE MOST GLORIOUS PHOTOGRAPHY :heart:)


:rose::rose::rose:

Together with the fantastically swashbuckling :iconcielroses: as my dashing Captain Oscar de Jarjayes, we entered these costumes in the Madman National Cosplay Preliminary Round at Melbourne Supanova. We were honoured with being awarded first place, and will compete in the finals at Brisbane Supanova this coming November! Yay!!

Thank you so much to all the wonderful friends who supported us in this competition and put up with us singing our hearts away (and watching Sherlock and Prince of Egypt non-stop), as well as *K-chan009 who made Andre Grandier to match our costumes for support! We didn't have much time to take photos, and the location wasn't very suitable, but Ray wrought his magic and made us look super-shoujo-sparkly! Please look forward to a newer set of photos in the future at a good location, where we will not only have Marie, Oscar and Andre, but also a drastically gorgeous and heartbreakingly handsome Count Fersen!
