Halloween 2012- Captain Jolie Rouge

For Halloween, I dressed up as (my interpretation of) Captain Jolie Rouge!
 There are no real details of her in Emilie Autumn's "Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls", so I set out and created what I thought Captain Jolie Rouge would look like.
 Let's start at the top. These are the feathers I chose, peacock and an ostrich feather. I put blue glitter on the peacock feather to bring out the "eye", as well as hand glued those sequins into place.
 This is my little tricorner hat. I bought this and didn't make it though, unfortunately. Next year!
 Red glitter skeleton hand (I glittered myslef) holding back my hair.
 Pearls! Cut and placed by yours truly.
A pearl haircomb (my mothers) and a little birdie I stole from a floral arrangement years ago. Since there were bobby pins holding down my tricorner hat, I put a little magnet under this little fellow and he stood right in place.
My face/make-up. I wanted to add black thick lashes with make-up streaking down my face, but didn't have enough time. I don't quite fit the bill of the mad Victorian Captain Jolie Rouge without it. Oh well, next time I guess.
 My necklace, Emilie Autumn of course.
My tank top, black lace sleeves (I made myself), and a salvaged red scarf/shawl. It's cold in the asylum.
 My corset and accouterments. I love how the reds match. X3
Close-up of my pocketwatch, my sugarspoon, and my locker key. I also wore 1 black glove and 1 red glove to match my 1 red/white striped stocking and my 1 black/white striped stocking. 
 Panniers! I am soo fucking proud of these things, I made them myself. I fought with them for a while, but I finally got them to obey me the night before. This is a photo of the front.
 This is a photo of the back. I added random "asylum" patches wherever I could.
 And just a random glamour shot of my red glove, rings, hair, and lips.
And that's my Captain Jolie Rouge costume! I wish I teased my hair and made it more messy, but I didn't have enough time to tease it properly. Oh well, I'll do that next year! :D <3!

Thank you CatacombxKitten. It took a while to get all the little parts done, but in the end, you can rely on your friends to ask "It's Halloween, why didn't you dress up today?" :P <3!

Thank you Bulcan_Butterfly, I tend to get a little obsessed when I create my own costumes. ^^; <3!
