Completed: August 2021
Why This Costume:
When the internet lost its collective mind over Lady D back in the spring of 2021, my friend and teammate, AdventTraitor, pointed out that Lady D and her daughters would be a fantastic group cosplay for Cosmic Coterie, especially since I already tower at a solid 5-6″ over the rest of the group. Well, she was right, and so I set about becoming a tall vampire lady.
How I Made It:
I wanted to keep things simple with this build, so I used Cosplay Central’s Lady Dimitrescu guide for my first run at a casual/closet version of the character and paired the accessories listed with a ruched bodycon dress I bought for Lore Olympus Persephone. This version of Lady D was for a noir shoot with Cosmic Coterie and was shot by PhotoPersuasion.
To make a more accurate version of the character, I turned to Cashmerette’s Upton dress with some light modifications. The capelet is self-drafted and the front pleating is a gathered down rectangle pressed into place on the bodice. To give myself some extra height, I wore wedge sneakers that added 4″ to my already Amazonian height. The dress is made from champagne faux dupioni.
