Costume Information

General
Cost : .....No idea. A LOT.
Time Taken : 5 months

Description
Rayne's traditional red and black costume, top and leggings. Attempting to get the costume as close to how it should be as possible. As there are a few variations of how it looks in the first and second game as well as the concept arts of Rayne, I have been using the bits that are best and most easily done for it.

The blades are made from wood as well. Proper replicas are not allowed at the London MCM Expo. If this costume goes well, I will probably be cosplaying Rayne on a regular basis if I can. The boots are the closest I can get at the moment - I know of someone who has tried to make the spikes and has had significant problems getting them to work and has given up, and they wouldn't be allowed anyway. So they'll be rather high slimmed down block heels with a platform.

On most of the photos there, I am not wearing the arm braces. That's because they took too long to put on. I'll have to upgrade them somehow buy making some or getting more with velcro so I can put them on so much more easily. The blades actually DO pivot as well. All thanks to my father who made them.

I have also worn this costume at:
* Norwich Cosplay Picnic (17th April 2010) Chapelfield Gardens.

Thanks. I'll probably frequent as Rayne, though whatever costumes I make I will wear again and again.

by SlimDefinition on Saturday, 4 July, 2009 - 16:27

Great job! I love Bloodrayne, though I only played the first game. The correctness of your costume is incredible, you must've spent ages planning this! The blades look absolutely fantastic, too. You've obviously achieved a perfect balance between skills in fabric-costumes and skills in props!

Thanks. I'll be a re-wearer of the costumes I do, so I'll be seen as Rayne time and time again - when possible and whenever I feel like it. ^_^'
There will be a couple of additions at some point as well.

It's odd isn't it? I mean, when you realise you've met someone before in another costume. XD

BloodRayne Cosplay (London MCM Expo, May 2009) (Posted 26th May 2009)

It was really successful. I'm pleased with it, and I intend to cosplay Rayne again in the not so distant future.

There will be more photos to see later when I receive them.
