Der Tod/Death (Saigo no Dansu - Sena Jun ) - Takarazuka Tsukigumi "Elisabeth"




I chose to cosplay Sena Jun's version of Der Tod for the Grand Cosplay Ball, as it is fairly new - the musical only came out on DVD this month.
The costume is reeeeally pretty lol. I am doing one of many costumes that Sena wears during the musical; her silver and black military uniform that she wears during Saigo no Dansu (my favourite song from Elisabeth). Since Saigo no Dansu literally means "The Last Dance", I figured this would be the perfect Ball cosplay, as it fits with the whole grand, elaborate theme of the Ball.

I also love the wig Sena wears when she plays the role of Tod; it is a lot different compared to Tod's hair in the past versions of Elisabeth~ It is long and wavy, similar to Ayaki Nao's Tod, with the exception that it has accents of crimson in the bangs, and is braided at one side.

The reason that I chose to cosplay Tod in the first place is because I love the character. I first saw Mizu Natsuki as Tod in the 2007 version of Elisabeth, and I was hooked. Tod is really an awesome character~ he is a sensual and mysterious, yet tragic character.

I can't wait to wear this cosplay at the Grand Cosplay Ball~

Emi and I will be cosplaying Elisabeth and Tod respectively, and we are doing this as a couple cosplay.
Since Asako is retiring the month after the Ball, we have both agreed to send her a copy of a photo from the Ball photoshoot, and a note.

We love you Asa <3
