I cheated with my glasses LOL I got the ones with the side shields and used tinting plastic for the lenses. I also painted the metal black LOL

Your pistols look so much cooler than mine! I absolutely love them!

The guns were a lot of fun to have custom done, just wish i'd had the same luck with the actual costume that i'd had with the props lol

guns were a custom job by a friend, love them though :D

the purple hat and coat came from the fan+friend store, who thankfully exchanged it for a proper set :)

Progress... two steps backwards (Posted 22nd November 2012)

Ok, i received Alucards trench-coat and hat this morning, excitedly i was ready to open it up, grin manically at the new bits to add to my collection and have fun immediately...

Only my sense of hope and joy was dashed upon opening the packet...

*cries*

The quality is gorgeous, i can't fault that... the fit is perfect, a comfortable coat i'd be happy to wear out most days... it's the colour I have a problem with... now, i realize that i'd looked for a 'dark red' coat and hat to match, as the dark red fit more for me and Alucard than the primary red he normally wears, but this, this isn't dark red... it's frickin' purple...

Back to the drawing board with this one, time to research a more reputable store to deal with...

The guns (Posted 15th November 2012)

Walter, it's perfection...

And they truly are... Alex has done an amazing job on my two guns, screen perfect and weighing in at over 2kg each... they're gorgeous and custom sized to my hands for comfort... i'm in love :D

Glasses have begun... (Posted 12th November 2012)

Ok, with most of the Alucard costume already in the bag, literally, as i already have a suit / shirt that i can customize slightly to work with the outfit, it was time to turn my eye to accessorizing...

Namely, the glasses... those annoyingly gorgeous glasses of Alucard's that make the whole outfit...

So, having found an absolutely gorgeous base to work with here, i now have all the parts on order that i'll need...

The gorgeous glasses themselves came from Anon, specifically their Wizard line of sunglasses, for anyone else who wants a fun project to work on...

Now, the side shields were a bit more difficult to hunt down, but i eventually found this lovely pair on ebay :)

Now with both bits on order, I just have to sit back and wait for delivery... damnit, patience has never been one of my virtues :p
