Fatwetdog This was taken in the tea room at the Irving Place Inn. The whole hotel was designed to evoke an Edith Wharton novel, which it accomplished admirably.

I started reading Kuroshitsuji back in September on the advice of Mino and Yui from Team Osaka. I was only 3 pages in before I was running around the house like a crazy person and calling everyone I knew to look at pictures.

Of course, the first person I called was India. I was all, "OMG, we have to do this!" I knew I wanted to do Ciel, and she's all little and cute so I was like, "And you should do Elizabeth!" But India said she was sick of doing cute pigtail girls, and decided to vamp it up as Madam Red. And vamp it up she did, boy howdy. (She found the most amazing red sateen wool at Paron in NY. It even sounded awesome when she was cutting it.)
