finally a photo that allows me to -see- this lovely costume. I can't offically critique but I can here. =) First and formost I am a cosplayer like yourself.

You got the hair, you have a dark mark. All the bases are covered. I like the fact you did NOT reproduce the movie costume. I love the victorian look with the corset over the top, which is more romantic goth. Dress has nice details- when wearing all black you were smart enough to break up the visual with textures.

Tip- I use a wand in lighter color and tip it forward or up when pictures are taken. If this is not done, the wand disappears. That's my experience.

I would love to see the backside of this dress. =)

I would add a half cloak to the costume too. If possilbe create a light version of a death eater mask and hang it off the dress or make a pocket for it.

This costume is highly versitile and easily converted for a vampire or victorian widow look- the whole look of this outfit changes with hair and hats and accessories. A true asset to any cosplayer's wardrobe.

Thanks for the great comments! I feel like you're giving me too much praise though :P The wig was a very cheap one, with white extensions that I curled myself. It looked horrible until the girl playing Ron magically made it perfect :)

The dress is actually an underskirt borrowed from a friend with a dress on top with has had the front scrunched up to give the Victorian look, and then an under-bust corset added to give the Bellatrix feel. The lovely Dark Mark was drawn on in marker by the lovely lady playing Lucius :)

The makeup was done by the same girl who lent me the dress (not the skirt). The dark eyes really made the costume!

So, it was a collaborative effort, and it accidentally turned out perfectly! But I don't really deserve the credit :P

The wand was a replica of the Bellatrix wand that I borrowed from the girl playing Ginny ;) But I'd love to acquire something similar, wand, outfit and everything, at some point. I'll keep your comments in mind :)
