Georgia Dusk by g0ldfishl0ve Georgia Dusk by g0ldfishl0ve
I finally have pictures of this costume! I made it last year but failed to get pictures at last Otakon, so I had my boyfriend take some at Katsu this year. The wrinkles are thanks to the fact that this isn't 4way stretch, and because bunny suits are simply not my forte.

(My eyes were very dark/weird in this one, not sure if I look strange or not after having tweaked them lighter.) The title comes from Toomer's Cane; I really liked reading his work...

Don't recall any showgirl bunnies in Cane,  but I suppose I can read it again. :p

You're probably the only person who knew the reference, so that's pretty neat. I realize that my costuming has nothing to do with Cane, but at the time I uploaded this I had just been reading it and really fell in love with the writing style.

I read Cane about a year ago, and have since recommended it (successfully) to about half a dozen people. It's my second favorite book after One Hundred Years of Solitude and on a word for word level probably the most beautiful piece of writing in American history. I find myself muttering lines before I go to sleep. I've written a book that uses Toomer's poetry-story model, one I intend to use for my thesis (I'm an MFA grad student), and I know without Cane I couldn't have begun to write it as it is now.

I found it very interesting that you used Toomer's words for this picture--somehow I think he'd approve. He was taken with feminine beauty, and would probably see you as a Cabaret dancer (with bunny ears).

You might also like Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson, a book that may or may not have been the inspiration for Cane. It's not as beautifully written, and the characters aren't quite as vivid, but it's charged with a profound loneliness, all brought on by the failure of its characters to express themselves, punctured only in glorious moments where they manage to connect to their fellow human beings and make themselves heard.

Hi! I know my reply is about 2 months late, I really apologize. I had a busy last semester and haven't been on here long enough to reply. First off I appreciate the reply, it is really rare that anyone knows what Cane is let alone appreciates how damn beautiful it is. I haven't read it in its entirety yet and it has been at least 3 years now since I read it but it really stuck with me. You've inspired me to break it out again now and re-read/finish it.

Thank you for the recommendation too, I am always looking for good literature suggestions. And thank you too for saying you think he would approve :) I wish I could make something truly worthy of a title inspired by him, but I'm afraid I can't imagine such a beautiful costume myself. If I was good at design I'd try, but I just do costumes from pre-designed characters.

Anyway, again I appreciate it and I wish you good luck with your thesis! I'm debating doing the grad school thing myself, but for Biology. I love literature, and writing but I think it would kill me haha. I am just not cut out to do it on that level.

Oh, don't worry about it. A late reply is better than none at all. Unless of course the recipient has died in the interim, in which case it becomes beautifully sad.

I would think a Cane-inspired costume would be kind of ragged and torn up, but made from fine, delicate material. A Sunday gown torn at the shoulder, with a frayed skirt and lots of sticky pine needles clinging to the fabric.

If you want to get a masters in biology, I say go for it, assuming you have the funds for all the applications and for moving in a new place, paying for books, tuition, etc. I have a pretty good deal where I am, as a graduate teacher's assistant I get a full tuition waiver and a biweekly stipend, of course I also have to work hard assisting in an English Comp class and grading papers, but it's a rewarding experience too. If you do search for grad schools, see if the programs offer a similar package.

Haha glad I didn't offend you! I am really bad about logging in, I follow quite a few artists so when I do I usually have to go through a lot of work and add some comments/favorites so it is quite a time consuming process to come on here.

I think you're right about the outfit! I don't think I've ever wished I was creative until this exact point in my life, I would love to bring something like that to life.

I would personally love to be a TA. I got to peer teach with a TA/other peer teacher and because we knew a bit more about the particular subject matter than our TA she pretty much let us run the class (except we didn't have the grading so it was only half the experience, and it was the fun part I guess). I am still debating getting a teaching license because I love elementary age kids, I might turn that into a Master's later, I am not sure. So many decisions. Grad school seems scary and intimidating to me too since I never was at the top of my class, I'd say I'm basically a solid B student no matter how much I like a particular class.

Both, but specifically the bunny :3
It is, but admittedly I've only seen a handful of series and I like them all. My cosplay obsession is really Silent Hill, but I can never resist great character designs like Kallen. It's been like a year and a half since I watched Geass (1 and R2) and I've only recently finished the costume so I feel so stupid as I barely remember anything :(

lol. don't think that way. in fact, you should be happy that after a whole year you do still remember a lot. especially the character designs. X) I've played like 1 silent hill game in my life and seen the movie. HAHA, but i do find the concept interesting. I'm more toward resident evil. :)

I've been told if I grew my hair out and had white-er skin, I could be Lelouch. If my tone stay the same, I'm Suzaku. Either way, I'll have problems convincing my gf to be Euphy or C.C. I saw the note about your bf, do you guies have matching cosplays?

Haha I wish! In the far future my boyfriend will be dressed as Jim Raynor from Starcraft II and I'll go as ghost Kerrigan, but as a general rule he doesn't cosplay with me. He's very tan, and doesn't look like any of the guys from the series I cosplay from :(!!! Why wouldn't she want to be CC or Euphemia? They're both adorable :D Maybe Shirley would appeal more to her? Or Cornelia? The series has a lot of female characters, though I guess Euphy would match Suzaku and CC would match Lelouche...

yeah but she isn't a big fan of wigs and dying it would be a problem since she and I are military so she needs natural hair color. we would need like a week off just to get it back to normal colors. Otherwise she likes CC's black knight outfit so I need to be Zero/L.L.

Oh no, I see your predicament! IMO wigs are the only way to go, especially in your situation. Maybe she could do it just for some pics? Getting into the costume/makeup would be done without the wig and then she could quickly tack it on before you guys get some shots of the costumes. I hope you can convince her to do that, it would be a lot of fun :D

The shape of you pelvic bone and femur indicates that you barely ever walk in heels, or simply started using them late. Also, the way raising your hand affects your right clavicle is gongruent with a job there you hunch a little, and rarely sit, standing in one place almost all the time.

The pic is great, what's missing is a big smile ;)

Haha are you saying you can judge my heel usesage when I'm not standing up straight? I tend to doubt this, but your suspicions are absolutely correct lol. I never wear em' and I do hunch a lot! I was dying by the end of wearing this for 2-3 hours tops. My legs get strange looking in heels, I only ever wear the occasional kitten heel...My pelvic bones just jut out by the way, it's one of the few unique aspects of my figure.

I'm glad you like the pic! Are you familiar with the character? She is supposed to be pretty shy/moe when she wears this outfit (for all of 10 minutes in one episode hehe) so I was trying to keep my expressions toned down. I do have some where I'm smiling though ^^ I tried to improve my poses, but I don't think I really succeeded...
