"Is he running late with my tea again?
Pah-- I don't know what to do with that useless Casper. Anyhow…"
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
Being in Cirque des Reves, you obviously love the supernatural. Well how about smexy butler and master garments, for all of you? How about a twisted little demonic deal to sweeten it even more?
We all know you said a massive YES.
And what happens when you mix them together?
You get Kuroshitsuji
. Or Black Butler, whichever title you prefer. A universe where Victorian England meets the supernatural.
All you need to know is: Kuroshitsuji is an ongoing supernatural manga series by Toboso Yana. It focuses on the lives of Ciel Phantomhive, a 13 year old Earl and his demon butler Sebastian Michaelis in their everyday (mis)adventures doing (quite risky) "errands" for the Queen, among other personal endeavours.
WHAT CAN MY CHARACTER BE?
Draw your character as they would appear on a cover of Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler. You will first need to put your character in a Kuroshitsuji-inspired character role as part of the AU, more of which will be explained down the bottom.
Here's a compilation of (all the current) covers: www.listal.com/list/all-the-ku…
To complete the event:
1. Comment below with your character's name and role (to make it more fun, comment with their AU name and title if you'd like)
2. Download the template for your submission here: kishi-san.deviantart.com/art/O…
Make sure you pick the border for your Faction - Spades/Black, Hearts/Red, Clubs/White, Diamonds/Diamond.
3. When you're finished, comment again with a link to your submission so I can add it to the list!
4. Submit it to the MAJESTIC BLACK CIRQUE folder or else we can't give you a bonus 12 points did you hear that guys 12 points
You can choose to be any of the types of characters seen throughout the Kuroshitsuji franchise - along with the manga series, this also includes both seasons of the anime and both musicals. If you aren't familiar with the series and/or need help deciding what would be appropriate for your character, please come and ask me! WHAT SHOULD THEY BE WEARING?
Examples include: Young Master, Demon Butler, Shinigami, Nobility, Servant etc
Despite role titles, there are NO GENDER RESTRICTIONS.
Your character can also be OOC if you feel it would help them fit their role better.
Kuroshitsuji features Victorian era clothing with heavy influences from gothic and lolita fashion. You may derive clothing designs from the ones seen in the series, but cosplaying a canon character is not allowed.

and Demon Butler
characters MUST sign up as a pair. To avoid confusion, only one person should comment on behalf of the pair. Contract marks are optional. Please note that even though "Young" is part of the role title, your character doesn't need to be young or look young.
THIS RULE APPLIES TO ANY character paired with a Young Master. Your options are not limited to the traditional demon in the manga, as other supernatural beings have also made 'contracts' with human characters in the anime and musical.
characters MUST wear glasses, and have their eyes changed to Shinigami Eyes. Death Scythes are optional.
Shinigami Eyes are two toned green irises, as seen here.
While Kuroshitsuji has only featured male shinigami so far, females do exist and are welcome in this event.
This AU's Noah's Ark Circus will be simply called The Cirque. Performer
characters should be renamed after a word or a name that reflects their act or personality (if you decide to rename).
Backgrounds should be blank (white). Props can only be included if the characters interact with it (eg. sitting on a chair, holding a tray, etc).
You can include up to 3 characters on your submissions. Remember to ask permission from their artists first!
