|Cost :||Roughly £86|
Okay, basically my boyfriend is cosplaying Alucard, so I asked him to show me Hellsing... After which I decided to cosplay Seras Victoria!! I'm doing the red outfit, which I'm buying from www.fan-store.net and I'm also buying the wig from www.cosworx.com, but I'm making the Black Glove with the eyes myself, and Ryuk is making me the Harkonnen and the Rifle! I also have an ammunitions case which is on his "Props" Section/costume :)
Very much looking forward to this because it'll show my curvy figure off and I wont have to worry about looking daft in a short skirt because it's required!! Red's also one of my favourite colours to wear so... Yay!!
The outfit cost £66, and I'm getting a wig from Cosworx which will be the Leslie Wig, but unfortunately the closest colour I can get it in is a wierd light blonde, which I'm not too keen on. It'll be about £20

Finshed? (Posted 13th October 2009)
Well, with FuyuCon only 1 week and a bit away I've decided to declare this comtume finished and ready to wear! I've managed to sculpt my scarecrow fangs, but because I've had so much dental work already they've had t ogo on my second inscisors, rather than my canines. I look cute though, apparently!
As for the glove, I'm buying that today. If I feel brave, I might fabric paint some eyes onto it (since gloves come in pairs I can practise first!) but if not, I don't mind having it plain.
Unfortunately due to weapons regulations I won't have a harkonnen, but if we can get tubing (possibly from our rubbish hoover) I may end up with The Orphan, at least!
More Photos!! (Posted 24th July 2009)
Well, Since I had nothing to do before work the other day, we decided to explore some of the nicer looking areas of Hull and do a mini photoshoot for my Seras, and try the wig out proper, too, now I have a wig cap!
Apart from the few expected 'uughhs' (which loosely translates as Arrgh you're betting your legs and shape out but your not a size 4 so you're revolting) things didn't go too badly. Some old ladies smiled at me, too! Anyway!
I'm very happy with my wiglet! So much so that I was very tempted to wear it to work (but I didn't!). I still need gloves/fangs/cannon, but for now just please enjoy my new photos! ~^^~
Accessories Remain (Posted 5th June 2009)
So, my wig arrived the other day!! Eeek, it's now happily sat on a wig head we found by chance when we moved, but anyway, this means that the main costume body is done, and only the accessories remain-
~Harkonnen. I still need to learn to spell that! But anyway, Ryuk's sorta doing this for me, and we reckon at the moment the most plausible items are poster tubes or possibly, depending on what Homebase (or somewhere like that...) has to offer, guttering/plastic piping
~Scarecrow fangs. Probably the part of the costume im most looking forward to, need to order 2 packs off eBay, one for me, one for Ryuk!
~Glove. Easy peasy- mod an opera costume glove off ebay!!
~Eyes. For the eyes I think I'm steering away from contacts, because it takes me forever to put them in and I blink too much! I tried experimenting with red makeup around the eyes, which you can sorta see in my wig photos, but I'll practise a little more before i decide on anythnig final.
Only one thing left... (Posted 29th May 2009)
Okay so the costume is HERE! I decided to wear my Doc's for the shoes, and the glove should be easy enough to do... im justr waiting on the wig!!! Eeeeek! I'm rather excited ^^,
IT CAME!! (Posted 15th May 2009)
And they're SUCH high quality :) I'm really amazed at it :D
Yaaaay! (Posted 1st May 2009)
I finally ordered me and RyukRedApples' Seras and Alucard costumes :) They should take maybe 2 weeks to get here, and by that point I should have monies for a wig and the scarecrow fangs!
Really excited about this, we should be making both of Sears' guns (The Harkkonen and the other Rifle she has!) Well, I say WE... Ryukredapples should be making them! I also have a little ammunition case for my sandwiches which is on Ryuk's profile already (under props) :D
I think im a little worried about moulding the fangs wrong, BUT we'll tackle that when it comes down to it :D
For an image of the costumes in question heres some linkage:
Soon! (Posted 16th April 2009)
I get paid next week, so I'm gonna go ahead and order this next Friday :3
