Debuted at EOY 2010 but didn't have any decent photos back then.
Decided to cosplay Alucard again during Comic Fiesta after 2 whole years! And love to ~sakana
for being my Maria once again. Didn't really take much unique photos at event as usual, thanks to ~roxwindy
for helping us take a couple of shots before we died off.
Did everything from the vest to coat to cape to bootcovers, sword and shield.
Sorry the shield wasn't impressive enough, I'm bad with props.
Hand-pressed about 150 studs and sewed 4 metal buckes to the vest, which made it quite a considerable weight.
Drafted the coat such that it tapers abit at the waist and flare out to have a certain shape, and lined with a patterned fabric which I hunted for some time to look as close as possible to the original design.
Lots of trimmings and buttons of 2 different sizes continues to add weight to the overal costume!
And plus the cape with chains and belts and leather gloves, I pretty much died of heat stroke in sunny Singapore.
This game was one of my childhood, and I loved the OST and art. Alucard is to die for, and I more or less died during the making and cosplaying. But but but... Alucard i love you
