Warhammer40000 Queen Lachryma by alberti Warhammer40000 Queen Lachryma by alberti
Me as Queen Lachryma III of Sepheris Secundus
Photo - :iconashitaro:

I'd wanted to make this cosplay for a long time. Once the John Blanche's illustrations by Horus Heresy Sketchbook have overwhelmed me, and the idea to make this cosplay had haunted my mind. Finally, I took the plunge. I'm an old fan of the Warhammer 40 000 Universe to begin with; it's time to make some tangible proofs of my love.
Though, I have no certainty in whether this woman is Queen Lachryma. Yes, this is how Lexicanum.com imagines her but the very scetchbook she mentioned as Imperial Nobility - Winter Court Dress. I'm not sure about her, but I like her.
Almost all costume is made by me.
Many thanks to :iconashitaro: for invaluable help. Btw, those gorgeous skills were made by her.

Эти глаза напротив - калейдоскоп огней.
Эти глаза напротив ярче и всё теплей.
Эти глаза напротив чайного цвета.
Эти глаза напротив - что это, что это?

Пусть я впадаю, пусть
В сентиментальность и грусть.
Воли моей супротив эти глаза напротив.
Вот и свела судьба, вот и свела судьба,
Вот и свела судьба нас.
Только не подведи, только не подведи,
Только не отведи глаз.

Эти глаза напротив - пусть пробегут года - 
Эти глаза напротив сразу и навсегда.
Эти глаза напротив - и больше нет разлук.
Эти глаза напротив - мой молчаливый друг.

Пусть я впадаю, пусть
В сентиментальность и грусть. 

:)

I daresay this is the best 40K cosplay costume I've seen, outside of those professionally-done Space Marine costumes for E3 last year. Good job!

In keeping with the spirit of John Blanche sketches, I feel she could use more headtubes... but seriously, the costume is amazing, the amount of attention to detail brings a little slice of 40k to life. :)
