Kaname Kuran
Vampire Knight

Cosplayer: M.Kesaiyn

Variant: Cross Academy Night Class Uniform

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

2nd March 2012: Last bits to arrive/buy I bought a clip-on tie (it'll save time and effort), the tie pin (more expensive than I think it's worth, but hey it's required), and lastly I just need to find a suitable pair of white trousers to replace the commissioned ones that DON'T FIT.

Yes, I do recommend 360 Cosplay on eBay because everything else was perfect.
The trousers are only a small mishap as far as I'm concerned.

I also just need to tweak the wig a little more, and then all is finished for Lord Kaname. ^_^'

23rd February 2012: Suit Arrival! Well, the suit has arrived. There was a slight mishap in that the trousers don't fit, but that's partially been amended already as I found a pair I might be able to use. However, I will still look for something a bit better than those.

Everything besides the trousers is absolutely brilliant! I must recommend 360 Cosplay on eBay for this. I like the quality, and the fabric feels quite durable (although keeping it clean may prove to be a bit of a task).

8th February 2012: Roses I have bought two roses. One for photos in the pocket, and the other to be held.
That is all. Pictures of everything will be posted when the outfit arrives.

4th February 2012: Slight change of plan AGAIN I have had to have it fully commissioned now (as has Raye-chan) because we have other projects on the go and they require more attention. Alas! It must be this way, but at least I'll have styled the wig myself. -_-'

11th January 2012: Suit / Uniform Plan Buy a commissioned uniform from eBay but without the details attached. The seller is happy to send the detailing separate so I can sew it on myself! Seems like a good way to do it. I don't really have the time to faff around buying other suits and hoping they'll work out. If they don't, it'd be wasting time.

At least I will then have some part in the construction.

I must save up for a few weeks first though.

8th January 2012: Suit Fail No.2 So, I bought the suit off eBay, the 70s one....
It looked cheap, it was very translucent, and the fabric (100% cheap polyester) felt nasty for a suit.

On the search we go again. Commissioning is the VERY LAST RESORT. I want to avoid that if at all possible because I like to be involved in the making of my costumes.

Hopefully it'll be third time lucky...

4th January 2012: Wig Progress and New Suit Needed Well I got a wig, and I've pretty much styled it already. I think it's looking good now.
However, the suit I bought was a bit small for a size 14. I'm a size 10, so I thought a 14 would give me leeway for alterations...NOPE! The trousers are very tight (they're more like a size 8 than a 14 even though the label says 14 - stupid), and the jacket is too short, showing off my bum...err, no. Not happening.

I hope to buy a fancy dress 70s disco suit. That should work. They're not very expensive and I HOPE I'll be able to work with one of those.

22nd December 2011: Two Essentials bought The white suit, as said, has been bought. That is one essential. The other is the wig. Once these two have arrived, I can: a.) put the details on the suit, and b.) style the wig.

"Yuki, the safest place is beside me."

21st December 2011: Beginnings I've bought a suit for Kaname, and I've been waiting anxiously for it to turn up. I hope it will work. It isn't one of those bad standard ones you can buy off cosplay shops on eBay though. I DID buy it off eBay, but it's a standard white suit that I will modify to suit, so it means I can personalise it by adding the detail on it myself.

I'm still learning a lot with fabric, so modification is a good way to do it.

Next, I need to find a wig (either styled right if I can find one, or one that I can style myself), and a black shirt and red tie. Then I'll be about halfway there.

Indeed, he must be put in his place. He is the pawn *loves Zero really*.

Agreed XD if Zero was to just make his mind up and share his feelings perhaps I wouldn't want to nag him!

I am also glad that you think the trousers I have will work.
Speaking of which, I must sew up the flared parts of them!

Thank you. :-)

My uniform is a commission (my only commission thus far as I prefer to make my costumes myself - but this was an exception as finding a decent white suit wasn't possible, and modifying it to look exact probably wouldn't have worked).
