Cosplayer Avianna > Costume of Alucard from Hellsing
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
This costume is faaaaaar from complete. I wish I had been able to bring it with me when I moved to Florida. Maybe I'll snag it when I'm back home during ACen and bring it back down to finish :3
The Jacket is a Vogue pattern, altered to have the right kind of double breast. The lapels were also altered and top stitched in two lines like some of the art. Its is made of twill.
The suit under neith was my first venture into a suit. I hate the fabric and want to replace when I wear it next. A really bad poly-suiting. It as well have top stitching like the artwork. The ascot is a complete fake that I would like to finish.
The scarf and gloves were purchased.
The hat is made from buckram and short white fur. The boots were originally a cream color, but I painted them white using Jaquards. Its hard to find flat white boots with black souls ._.;
Again, this costume is far from finished. However, when it was wearable I REALLY wanted to wear it out after spending about a year trying to get it together. ESPECIALLY since my boyfriend agreed to be my Dark Walter. (I made his costume as well)
- Personal Thoughts:
- I love Alucard. He is my Animu Husbo.
- Styling Notes
- All I did was add a Short Bang to a Le Tigre Long. In the future I will be using a wig with bangs already in it. I want to have fuller bangs next time.
- Wig Review
- I love my Le Tigre. With the proper care I've used it for a few costuming ventures AND just to wear. I have a thing for characters with black hair.
