Full view it, please, this work is hysterical @_@
And yes, the title is a nod to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance, since I'm addicted to it. Oh, I haven't seen the video (I usually keep away from music videos and imagine my own stories), so I don't know if what's in the video fits this vector and all.

Oh-kaay, let's get to the description bit now. Since I promised to make a Princess Tutu wall every December, I went hunting for a good screenshot to use, since mine are of crappy quality and I feel kind of guilty when mine are like that - oddly though, I have no problems with others' XD I ended up using this screenshot as a base; while vectoring the outlines, I decided to reconstruct the image, since I felt kind of strange to vector only the seen part (it looked a little simple and empty). All the images I used are listed below.

Vectoring + painting = love. Even though some shadow parts look completely painted, they do have good ol' shape layers underneath all the painting ones, as seen in Mythos' shirt. Speaking of which, I got extremely lazy when it came to vectoring his shirt, but painting the shadows was very fun - I even asked a non-PS-savvy friend to say how she'd like the shadows to be, and she chose the slightly faded version that you see now.
The background is a collection of custom shapes combined to look like stained glass because I felt they'd look good against such a BG. Whoever made those custom shapes, thank you, you saved my life ^^ Oh, and just thought I'd add this: the big version (3954 x 5562 px) is the enlarged version of the one you see here, on MT; however, since I worked with shape layers and the painted ones are OK, there's no quality loss ^^ Sorry for the big file size, though, the PSD file was so big that I got the big-arse "not enough memory available" when trying to Save For Web. So, Save As all the way, I guess.

For any other curiosities you want cleared, check out the walkthrough *ish proud of it* My first walkthrough for a vector *tear*
Since MT doesn't allow resolutions higher than 1,000,000 pixels, check out the original version (3954 x 5562 px). Also has the PNG versions~

Layers / PSD file size: 135 / 249 MB (zomgwtfbbq when did it get so big? o_O") -> the 3954 x 5562 px version, by the way.
Images used: hand on the left, bodies base, Mythos' feet (Fakir) and Ahiru's top hand (Rue), Ahiru's bottom leg and dress, Ahiru's lifted leg

Comments and/or favorites are welcome and very appreciated, thank you in advance <3 Also, I'd love it if you used this and dropped me a line, I'm always interested in seeing how people use my stuff~

    Oh wow, this is lovely! <3 I really like their outfits, and you did an amazing job turning that screenshot into a full vector.
    Great work, and thank you for sharing! :)

    Wow, so chibi screenshot XD The vector is nice! I like it.

    nice job combining those scans/screenshots :) The stain-glass background looks nice as well. My only complaint would be that the outline is too light sometimes, like for their eyes (esp his eyes) that they kinda melt into the skin...
