Unfortunately, I cannot give a good critique about the camera shots, but I will say that from the untrained eye, these are amazing. I think the one where you look like your contemplating is my favorite. Your skin is fair and your hair is perfect. This is by far one of the best Lestat cosplays I have seen yet. I'm in love again. The silhouette in the doorway is also a favorite of mine, just because it really brings out the detail in the character that you're portraying. It's beautiful. I know that these are older pictures, but it really is truly spectacular.

Oh my, believe me, if I met You in this disguise, You wouldn't have life.
I'm just kidding of course!
But You look really realistic and... It's my new favorite Lestats cosplay!
sigismvndvs Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Student Filmographer
really really good cosplay :O One thing though (that I'm sure someone has probably asked you before) why take the pictures at daytime when Lestat is a vampire? :P Would make sense if this is before his transformation OFC. Just had to ask XD Beautiful framing on this too btw
Carancerth Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Professional General Artist
It's jsut because it was easyer.
I admit.. I'd like to make a new shoot during the night... =)

Carancerth Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Professional General Artist
Near to my home ;)
In france.
frenchraph Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013
Let me rephrase that question: Ou avez vous fait ces photos?

Le site semble vraiment superbe, mais je suis au moin autant impressionne(r) par l'idee de cosplayer Lestat. J'ai vu tonne de cosplay gotic, steampunk, meme "random" costumes de style victorien, mais je ne me rappelle pas avoir jamais vue Lestat (ou un personnage du cycle auquel il appartient) en convention.
Carancerth Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thoses pictures were taken in a city near to my home ^^

An well I 've for now only be in French & Belgians con'
I have palnned Montréal Comic-con for september ;)

c'est ma préférée de la série. celle qui a plus l'air d'être un extrait du film. (excepté qu'il fasse jour bien sûr :p)

Tu ressemble vraiment à Lestat de Lioncourt. Superbe photo. :)
Txelan Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
J'ai regardé la phot et je me suis dit "merde, ca fait trop "entretien avec un vampire"" et puis j'ai lu les commentaires de l'auteur ... Mince pour ne pas être vulgaire, le cadre, les vêtements et même toi qui joue le rôle de Lestat, tout est parfait ;)

Je m'incline devant la perfection de cette photo !
Carancerth Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011  Professional General Artist
Merci à toi !

Ravi de voir que des personnes lisent les annotations ^^"
En tout cas... Si le travail fait bel et bien ressortir quelque chose de clair quand à l'univers, c'est tant mieux.
Et le but est atteint. Ravi que ça plaise autant =)
Txelan Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Le but est plus qu'atteint, du bon travail je dis ! ;)

You make an awesome Lestat + this picture is amazing. It reminds me of the atmosphere from the books so much!

Dear Good Gothic Sir and Lord,

this is another goth who wishes to express his contentness regarding your olden style and way of life. I can't live two days without the consumption of at least some minutes of the old bw addams family series, and I like the munsters, too, very much, but addams is nr. 1. I am total goth, and musician, all instruments. look me up at myspace dot com slash jackdarkestlord.
haha all those goth chicks wanting to "marry" you, huahah... when I show em my sounds i'll be a major concurrence for you bro.,... .-)))
where do you live. I hope you're not just a poser, at least, you're spoilt with the love by others, maybe, this is only on the net, and your quotidien life is as mega over hard as mine is, or maybe not. I grant you your success. I'm not jealous, I'm happy for you. I would love to open up a goth "club" or whatever, where we talk about goth, about paganism, the middle ages, history, philosophy, critical issues, politics... but not on the net. I'd like to be there with the goths, dammit. Im here in shitty switzer shit land... all is mega expensive here, ... .-((( no monoskiing for 15 years... boohoo.
I just bought some cheap, mega stylish clothes, the first time since now some 5 or 6 years or so. But I wouldn't have the dough for those 17th century clothes. gosh are THEM expensive. I'll try to get those pieces together, maybe in the old clothes dept. of the theathre. in any case, I need a top hat. no one is a goth without it. but i would wear only old "french" clothes which are rather black, with some silver or gold woven into it. your white socks don't please me. But all in all, the style is superbe as the ladies comment on it correctly, and your posing IS professional. the photographer pressed click in the right moment. well, brad shit, uhm pitt, is not really a superbe actor, so i wouldn't ever compare to him if i were you. someone asked me if I was an ACTOR, when I needed an ad agency for my pc support. maybe i'll visit some acting schools, haha. I would love to play lord brett sinclair of the persuaders. .-)))) greets, mister jean paul... my favourite romantic writer. who got beaten down by schiller, the ass of goethe. goethe himself was a macho, HE WAS a BAD poser, man. much later came thomas mann, before him hegel, and kant, all those were IDIOTS.

I absolutely adore your stock pictures and, of course, your Lestat pieces are beyond amazing, I have to say that even though others have told you so as well for so many times. You really are an astonishing version of Lestat, all from appearance, to your pose and the lightness with which you present Lestat's character. I usually don't like Lestat cosplays, but yours are brilliant. Very well done, and I look forward to seeing even more great photographs from you. :aww:
