This story is about a Phantom Zone Picture of an Elegant Gothic Lolita, murdered by Mad Artist Marchello Orlando to eternally preserve her youthful beauty, and Eiri Kurahashi, a young art student who becomes obsessed with her. The anime OVA was directed by Akiyuki Shinbo and featured music by Yuki Kajiura.
Le Portrait de Petite Cossette provides examples of:
- Awesome but Impractical: Although Eiri's creating a portrait of the real Cossette in his own blood is awesome.
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: See for yourself. Makes the scene in which Cosette hugs naked Eiri while not wearing anything except for a cape a little bit less squicky.
