Ruby's Dead? by Anti-Ai-chan Ruby's Dead? by Anti-Ai-chan
That means I get to drive.

I love Delirium so much. She's such an interesting character and you never know what she'll do next. I love how much depth she has in volume seven of the series so I really wanted to do a costume from it. Since I was low on funds, I decided the sweater version was the way to go.

I did not make the sweater, but it was heavily altered to fit me better as it was a men's XXL. lol The bodynetting was bought as well and I already had the shoes. The wig was originally long and I chopped it all off. I hand colored the green and pink areas myself. For styling, there was a lot of teasing, hair spray, blow drying and white glue.

Series: The Sandman (Brief Lives)
Delirium: Me!

Great job with that hand-coloring! I'll send this along to my friend; she's a big fan of Sandman and she'd love to see this.

So cute! I've never seen a set of photos like this, excellent choice of shots! Next time you might want to consider wearing foundation or smooth white face paint to get the Endless skin tone.

Thanks, it was one of my favorite scenes from the book. I was actually considering white makeup but since my neck, shoulders, legs, hands and part of my arms showed in different shots it would have been a huge pain for an hour or two of shooting. Delirium is has also been seen as less pastie than the other Endless in certain issues, so I didn't think it would be too big a deal.

How did you do the different color streaks in the hair? Is it dye or wefts?

I hand colored the chunks with Sharpies. Kind of tedious but I think it was the best way.

That looks like a bitch. =/ Since the hair is long, I wouldn't hand color it all in. My advice, either buy extensions in the colors you need; however, that could be pricey. You could also buy white extensions and soak them in Sharpie dye. The latter is cheaper but will take more time but it's still better than coloring it all by hand.

You got the faces so down pat! I'm not sure I could pull it off nearly as well. But the Endless Night wig is soooo hard to take to cons, so I needed to make an easier costume of Delirium to go everywhere with my group. They can take their costumes anywhere... luckies :P

Oh thank you! It was tricky to get all the angles as close as possible. But that wig of yours must be awful to transport; it looks huge! Mine just sits on a wig head but I can't put it in a bag or the colors and teasing will get tangled. =/ Darn you, Delirium, and your crazy ass hair!
