+Sebastian+ - His Butler, Presenting
~+~
:bulletred: Photographer- Koisplay Photography
:bulletred: Model - Me
:bulletred: My Costume - Made by Me
:bulletred: Time Taken To Complete Costume - 2 Months
:bulletred: My Make-up - Done by Me
:bulletred: My Wig - Styled by Me

:bulletred: Character - Sebastian Michaelis
:bulletred: Series - Kuroshitsuji - Book of Circus

:bulletred: Worn To: AnimeFest 2014 as a Judge for the Main Cosplay Show
~+~

Here is a photo of the Circus version of Sebastian that I revamped/remade ~
A couple of years ago I Cosplayed this version back when the manga released this Arc.
Since the episodes came out, I was excited to remake this version of him and put more of my designer style into it!


:bulletred: A Little About The Costume :bulletred:
Having made this costume years ago, I took some pieces I already had made and improved upon them~
I replaced all the buttons of my previous coat I made, as well as redid the ornaments on the hat. There's a single artwork that
Yana Toboso that has skulls on the top hat. I took that design and ran with it, adding that as well as a rose and feathers to the hat.
(Can't really see in this photo.) I also made an entirely new vest and necktie! Keeping with the Circus theme, I chose materials that would be glitzy
and flashy so it can catch light at a distance, but still not distract too much from character~  It was nice redoing this costume! I got to see just how my
past designer self thought compared to the present~

Enjoy~ :heart:

:star: Special Thanks :star:

:bulletred: Thank you Koisplay Photography for capturing this shot at the show~! :)

+Dislikes+: Liars, Cheaters, Back-stabbers, Disrespect, Manipulators, Abuse, Unnecessary Drama, Two-faced Individuals, Sharks, and Olives

+Personality+:
I am an androgynous, laid back yet energized person with a dream of becoming a Fashion Designer. Unable to get formal training, I took it upon myself to teach myself in various areas and build up my skills through relentless hours of practice. I am self-taught in Tailoring, Designing, Patternmaking, Dressmaking, and recently Jewelry making .

I tend to be a little more introverted and shy than extroverted. Meaning I'm generally quiet around people and those who I do not know. I'm always thinking and analyzing, as well as observing. Most people would say I'm more the calm, quiet, collected type with a bit of mystery.

To those that I do open up to, I can be talkative, funny, and charming, and wear my heart on my sleeve around them. I do enjoy having fun~. I am insightful, logic comes easily to me as I do enjoy organization and planning things in advance along with considering all available options.

I am compassionate as well, and like animals and plants. Because I'm quiet and shy, I feel like not many people really see the depth in my personality. Please don't be intimidated. I'm really just a friendly old soul and gentleman at heart. :heart:

In a nutshell: Laid back, energized, balanced, zen, deep, logical, and compassionate.

Current Residence: Texas, USA
Favourite genre of music: Baroque, Video Game Soundtracks, Movie Soundtracks, Gothic, Classical, Techno, J-Rock, Ambient, K-pop, New Age
Favourite photographer: My Buddy Ashley J ~ ;P
Favourite style of art: Anime, High Contrast, Monochromatic, Unique, Detailed, Macabre
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate
MP3 player of choice: Zune

Personal Quote: "Smile, my starshine. If you don't shine bright, how will I know where you are..?"
