|Time Taken :||About two months|
|My friend, Yasmin, was asking to see who would be her Sebastian since she was cosplaying as Ciel and I asked her if I could and since I was planning to cosplay as Sebastian, I thought I should get started on him already. |
I'm cosplaying as Sebastian with a Kuroshitsuji group on Sunday, which I can't wait to see!
Seastian was a bitch to make. He was the first that I've done who wore a waistcoat and tailcoat. I didn't want to buy a wasitcoat, since I wanted to see if I could do a hard task, so I decided to make the tailcoat and waistcoat by myself, even though I wanted help from Yasmin. I made sure everything was alright to be the best Sebastian for my friend. I wanted to get red contacts for him but it never happened but I'll probarly will later on. The trousers I already had and the shirt I have now, isn't long sleeved *kicks* because I couldn't be asked to actually buy one, I know, sounds very bad, right?
Sebastian really is a tough character to pull off and I think I did well on making his cosplay. It was a pain trying to get things right for him but I guess it all payed off. One of the things I love about my Sebastian is the tailcoat, I love it so much and I'm happy that I didn't mess up. I wished I re-done the waistcoat though but I'll will later on, hahaha, I keep on saying that I'll re-do things but I really mean to say that I'll do them by the end of next year. I'm very proud of my Sebastian, hope you like ^^
[ EDIT.29.08.10 ]
Used the red contacts that I bought for Ranka and borrowed white gloves from Yas :'D Oh yeah, also used one of my new wigs that I boughts a couple of months ago from a friend for Sebastian, it looks better than my old one lol

Tailcoat - Made
Score! I can't wait to cosplay as Sebastian for expo now 8D
I have to do some last minute stuff with my other cosplays, peace out!
Gloves in making and chains (Posted 22nd October 2009)
Since I wasn't able to buy a pocketwatch, I decided to have a make up plan, by buying chains instead to make it look like I have a pocketwatch XD;;
So far, Sebastian is 90% done, all I have to do now is make his gloves and re-style the wig. He will be done by tonight.
*goes off to sew*
Blahhh, update D8 (Posted 19th October 2009)
Sorry for the long rant from before *shot*
FML (Posted 13th October 2009)
I hate the god damn anime and I'm being completely serious. Sorry, I'll explain why I'm in a bad mood...
Okay, while working upon Sebastian, the only reference pictures I've used was some Japanese anime magazine (that I bought ages ago) that had a good reference picture of Sebastian but from the anime and seeing how the anime (well character wise) is the same, I thought that there would be no problem, using that picture to make his tailcoat. I was god damn wrong! The picture was completely wrong and except for using the refernece picture I have here, seeing how before I didn't have the time to even go on the internet. I compared the manga to the anime reference and I got it all wrong, seeing how this picture is from the manga, I'm pissed off *shot* I totally wouldn't mind basing the outfit from the anime but seeing how I'm not a fan of the anime, I prefer to base it from the manga, where it's orginally from. (Sorry if my thoughts does not match yours.) Sebastian's tailcoat at the front, has four buttons and it's placed somewhere else, which clearly means that I have to resew my buttons again and I really thought I completed it. At least it's better finding out now than later on. I'm just angry at myself mostly, I'm going to have to go to East Ham again, probarly at the end of the week, to fix my tailcoat, the last thing I want to do, is destory my tailcoat. I really don't like anime referneces when they changed the freaking story line of a very good manga. Sorry for raging like that, rant over...
On the good side, I finally bought a black tie for Sebastian and wearing it with the rest of the outfit, looked very good. Yasmin and I need to do some last minute styling later on the week before the expo. I know I won't be able to get the trousers right for Sebastian but if possible, I'll probarly sew some grey on my black trousers.
Pictures will be up later on, hopefully ^^
Seastian Wig *O*~ (Posted 10th October 2009)
Yes! We finally got to the wig XD
Hope you like!
Thank you very much Yasmin for styling the wig for me, much love <33
Pictures of tailcoat (Posted 1st October 2009)
Title speaks for itself. Minus the tie, gloves and wig. I love the buttons that I used, thank you Yas for helping me pick them x3
Short journal is short *shot*
Hope you like ^__^
Tailcoat Part 3 (Posted 24th September 2009)
So I decided to have a little break during the week and kicked my butt to finish off the tailcoat last night when I bought my silver buttons 8D
Tailcoat Part 2 (Posted 18th September 2009)
I made the sleeves and did the front (sort of) and I sewed the back part to the front and the sleeves together 8DD There's still a lot of things to do before I could say the tailcoat is finished but it's looking pretty good in my case :3 I have to buy silver buttons for the tailcoat, adjust more things at the back and add pockets at the front and it will be all done *brusts from excitment* I've yet to buy a black tie and with the help of Yasmin, we're going to style Lelouch into Sebastian (sorry Lelouch D:). I feel like I should of done that ages ago because Lelouch seems to be dying on me for a while now. I'm going to get a new wig for Lelouch because I'm not so pleased with the wig I use for him anyway. If I can, I'll probarly buy a white shirt for Sebastian but one of my friends said I could use hers, so if that happens, then I see no point in buying a new shirt but I might later on XD;; As for the gloves, I'm not sure where to get those and the trousers, I already have. Shoes wise, well, I think I'm going to wear Yasmin's shoes to gain more height but if possible, I might go to Camden and buy platforms there. If I get those things sorted, then Sebastian will be done by the end of the month, joy 8DD
Tailcoat (Posted 16th September 2009)
After finishing the waistcoat, it was time making the tailcoat! I was pretty worried about making it and looking at references from the manga and comparing it to the anime, made me even more worried XD; I really didn't know where to start. I decided to have two seperate pieces, except for one big piece, which would of been confusing. Thanks to Yasmin, I figured out how to do it. I still have problems with the front. I got started on the back instead. So far, I cut the back to have the tailcoatness and I sewed on the sides. Nothing much by looking at the picture. Please mind the other things on my bed, I just left like sharing what the back of the tailcoat looks like so far xD;;
Waistcoat Part 2 (Posted 16th September 2009)
Now I can finally say that the waistcoat is finished. I tighten the sides up and added in the pockets. I kind of cheated and made it look like pockets at the side but there's a bit of room to make it an actual pocket. I just remembered right now while writing this down, that Sebastian keeps his pocket watch in his pocket *shot* I'll work on it later. I tried on the waistcoat and I was pretty scared that it wouldn't fit but it does, yay ^o^/ The first picture is me wearing the waistcoat before I put in the pockets and the second picture is with the overall result of how it looks. I'm pleased with it 8D
Waistcoat (Posted 13th September 2009)
Like what my last journal said, I started on my waistcoat first because I thought it would be simple to make *shot*
Material 8DD (Posted 13th September 2009)
I actually got off my lazy butt and actually got started on Sebastian. There was no college on Friday, so I decided to buy material. I got started and I wanted to make it up to Yasmin Yasmin, who is going to be my Ciel and got started on the waistcoat first. The grey material is fairly nice, so is the black material. I got 3 metres each for the both of them, which was £1 per metre, which wasn't that bad. Though, I know I'm going to need more black material when I get started on his tailcoat. I'll show a picture of my waistcoat next time. Woot! I can't wait to finish Sebastian. I hope I can get him finished by the end of September hopefully ^__^
