Rip van Winkle (RETIRED) (OVA Version) - Hellsing


Rip van Winkle was my first Cosplay ever. I wore it to go to the MCM Expo in May 2008, and made a whole world of new friends that I Cosplay with today. I was a huge fan of Hellsing when I was in secondary school, and it was the first manga I ever read. And when I discovered Rip, she was a girl after my own heart!

The whole outfit was gathered from various shops. I replaced the buttons on the blazer with gold plated ones with anchors on them. Since Rip is a character at sea, I gave the blazer a more marine feel. The musket was made by Simon from Iceni Militaria, my local Militaria shop. And last but not least, the SUMSONS DRUGSTORE logo was painted on with acrylic paint. I dare not use it in the rain!

P.S. Beware the dreaded swastika pendant! D:<
