A noble by birth and education, dedicated to the safety of Marie-Antoinette, Lady Oscar experienced first hand the detachment between the French people and their ruler. Unable to follow the young and lonely French-Austrian Queen, Lady Oscar, the Rose of Versailles, will choose to embrace the Revolution but her heart will bleed because of that difficult choice.
Anime Detour organized a cosplay photoshoot. It was a great experience and Carla was so sweet. She put people at ease and did an amazing job on the photos. Thank you!

Costume: me! Hours of work to sew that black velvet jacket with a gold satin lining and homemade cuffs and shoulder pads.

I am using this picture as an entry to 's contest Colors
I am taking a different take on the concept by putting forward the Colors of the French flag: blue, white & red and their significance during the French revolution. This picture shows a character who decided to embrace those colors whatever the cost.
J'utilise cette image comme entree au concours de intitule Couleurs
Ici les couleurs du drapeau francais, bleu-blanc-rouge, et l'importance de ces couleurs pour ceux qui ont vecu la revolution francaise.
Cette photo montre un personnage qui a decide d'embrasser ces couleurs quelqu'en soit le cout.
The craftsmanship of the costume is stunning. I like the brocade you have used. I appreciate that it’s not a 100 % copy of the anime, but your own interpretation!! I also appreciate, that’s your real hair with curls. Most Oscar cosplayers use a wig that’s far too blonde and lots of makeup. As rised as a boy , Oscar did definitely NOT use any makeup and in my headcanon she has a bit androgynous look, so the camouflage is perfect. Thumbs up for this cosplay and the well done realisation.
This was one of the first cosplay I did, of a character I really like so I'm glad that I didn't butcher it.
About the choice of fabric, that's something I've learned over the years is that anime goes for stark solid colors because of ease of animation but if you want to make it look nicer in reality, using brocades and fabrics with light patterns is usually visually more appealing.
Thanks again for the compliment!
Did you know that a writer called Paola Elena Ferri took this picture (yes, this one; your picture!) for the cover of her book "DE JARJAYES: Segreti a Versailles"??
Ça claque! Bravo! J'aimerai faire ce cosplay un jour mais je suis pas assez grande et fine haha Du coup je pense que je vais me contenter de continuer à faire du costume histo plutôt que du cosplay inspiré d'un manga tel que celui-là haha
Raaaa nanananana c'est pas une excuse!!
Perso, je ne trouvais pas de tissu bleu qui me plaisait. Le rouge ca me va pas au tein et le blanc...c'est salissant! (non non je ne suis pas en train de travailler sur un cosplay entierement blanc...orz...bref...)
Donc j'ai decide de faire un noir meme si c'est pas 100% fidele a l'original.
Enfin le costume historique c est bien aussi hein.
Je serai dans la room bientot.
je sais pas si je serai dispo :/
But I did three years of theater acting when I was in middle school (3 hours a week and sometimes during the full weekend) plus I do some role playing as well, so I guess that helps! ^.^
You need to come to Anime Detour! You really should!!
I'll plan on wearing that costume and maybe others too. I might try to even be in character for some times. That'd be fun! XD
