The Coming of the King

Lena Karr's boyfriend wanted something special for Halloween- a King in Yellow costume.
Due to my passion for costuming, the aforementioned boyfriend requested I put together a King in Yellow costume for him. Specifically the version of the King in Yellow which appears in the Call of Cthulhu card game. It definitely got a lot of attention, even if very few people were actually aware of the book or the character. I've attached some photos for your perusal.
The results are impressive.  Here's a look at the original depiction from the "Call of Cthulhu" card game and Ms. Karr's fantastically well done interpretation.

Yesssssssss.... not merely "yellow" but a sickly, venomously greenish-tinged yellow. Not only that but a fluorescing hue, glowing radioactively in the semi-dark, letting any passerby wonder at the ways he might have been contaminated by this walking symbol of decay.

It adds new meaning to the question: "Have you seen the Sign?" Such a color itself is a sign.
