Let me briefly introduce you to a new name to the cosplay world called cirque/ Cirque De Punk/Cirque Punk/Circus punk. A NEW COSPLAY NAME


Let me briefly introduce you to a new name to the cosplay world call cirque/ cirque du punk /cirque punk/circus punk. (you heard it here first) a new name to the cosplay world and hope the next big costume movment. my first costume to start this new cosplay genre is not finished yet but it is going to be a very ellaborate ringmaster. The ideas for cirque punk are endless and just as versatile as any other cosplay genre, you could go absolutely wild with this subject and this costume style, for example one dress made for two hence siamese twins, the bearded woman/ring master tatooed lady. Then you also have a couple of hundreds years to choose which era to represent with this costume style as the circus has been running for at least that amount of time or even fuse those eras and come up with a calloboration of different costume styles from different decades or even centuries.with This costume style, the sky's the limit . You can go completely mad. I think this will really apeal to those in the cosplay world as i believe we have a lot in common with those travelling circus people etc on exhibition, a feeling of being or wanting to be different to everyone else and also being despised and yet admired at the same time. Hope this explains a little about this new style, if you decide this is for you I am sure you are going to have the most amount of fun with this and the shock tactics are going to be crazy on this one . So help spread the word.

i first thought of cirquepunk about 7 years ago but steampunk was big then,so i waited for the right time to introduce it,and that time is now.

cirquepunk was designed for all cosplayer (no matter what your cosplay genre)to join in and put there owen take on it.

.i call this ornate costume style baroque( Baroque means extravagantly ornate, florid, and convoluted in character)and got the idea from rococo style furnishing and develop it in to costumery.and has you can see it works realy well.

thanks to every one who has supported me in my previous projects but this one is a winner for sure.
Thank you Liam brandon murray founder of cirque/ cirque de punk/cirque punk/circus punk.

thanks to sonja who worked on this picture for me, she did everything I asked and more, fantastic job, looking forward to working with Sonja again, check out her page. Sonja can also add her name to the first person to work on this new costume genre, cirque punk so credit to her for that also.

Now thats my kind of armor! The man doesn't match up with the armor quite right though... It looks like it was super imposed onto a photo shop edited person. Thats the only thing keeping this picture from being absolutely perfect!

I really like the chest-plate area of the costume in this shot. It reminds me of some of the portrait-sculptures of the depictions of the "Titans" from World of Warcraft, which can be seen in many of the dungeons, raids and other areas where there are influences of The Titanic Pantheon's past presence from a time when they first created Azeroth.

I like the idea of the new genre. But I think it creates more the idea of a freak show then a circus.

The Tiger Lillies are maybe a great example for the style [link] (I love the show btw^^)
