Costume Information

Cost : £50 and probably more...
Awards : 'Best Performance' - London MCM May Expo 2010 (Saturday)
Time Taken : 2 Months

Yes another Takarazuka cosplay and another Elisabeth cosplay. This was actually the first Zuka cosplay I ever planned to do.

I am doing the 2007 yukigumi version played by Ouki Kaname, which is my favourite version of Rudolf. Of course having Ouki Kaname play him helps... a lot, XD XD

But fan squee aside, Teru really portrays Rudolf well. She really brings across his insecurities and unstable mental health. There is nothing more heart-wrenching then when he calls after Elisabeth before the Mayerling Waltz. Teru is the only Rudolf to do that... <3

Much love to my Tod, Telly... <3

So this costume will now be debuted at London May Expo, 2010. It will then be reworn for Amecon 2010 for the Takarazuka Panel.

Costume Complete - 28/05/2010

Conventions Worn At:

You are brave to attempt military outfits, but I'm sure it'll look amazing!

Gosh I know... considering this is one of my first costumes aswell... And not only a military jacket but one with loads of gold detailing... It's coming along nicely though. I am quite proud of it so far. ^_^

Amecon 2010 (Posted 19th August 2010)

I wore this again at Amecon, all day Friday for the Takarazuka Panel. And again in the Masquerade on Saturday. I do love this costume, but I feel like this one might have reached it's time to retire... There is so much wrong with it and... yeah, I really want to remake it so it fits better etc. I don't know. I'll see what happens with future events and if I'm ever asked to do Rudolf again. I do want to cosplay him again, but yeah... wether I'll wear this costume or a remade one, we'll see.

London MCM May Expo 2010 (Posted 3rd June 2010)

So I managed to complete this for expo... the day before it needed to be worn. But I did it and I am so proud of the thing... AND WE WON 'BEST PERFORMANCE'!!!!! LIKE WHAT!?!?!?! *happy bouncing*

Anyways... this will be worn again for Amecon in three months for definite. And I plan to remake this in a few years.
