Here you are! Pictures of me wearing it!
It was a very comfortable costume to wear. I had *some* worries that the weight of the headdress/falls would make it start to slip back too far on my head - especially with all the dancing and jumping, but it all stayed perfectly fine and didn't even give me headache...which was my other worry, as I have a sensitive head and even a simple headband will sometimes hurt me after a few hours. Around my eye is a fake "henna" design I freehand drew on with liquid eyeliner. Someone at the concert thought it was real henna! I bought waterproof eyeliner for this because I wanted it to stay put even if I forgot it was there and rubbed my eye. I bought cheap Wet n' Wild eyeliner, and by golly did it ever stay put! I couldn't get it off even with makeup remover! I had to basically *scrub* it off...which wasn't much fun since it was right around my eye. Glad I didn't use it actually for it's purpose...I'd never have gotten it off! But next time I want a temporary design on my hands or feet (or anywhere else more friendly to scrubbing, I'm definitely using this brand. It STICKS.
Oh, and I also met this guy. No idea who he is, but he seemed kinda cool....
*not-so-quiet SQUEE at getting a picture with the guy who inspired my costume, while WEARING my costume*
More pictures and videos and a write-up about the concert itself, here on my other blog!
Oh, and here's a pretty poor video of my armpiece, in the dark, after the show. You really can't see much, but you can see how the lights work!
