Aleera - Van Hellsing the movie


About Aleera:

"Aleera is one of Dracula three brides, she's the last bride to die in the movie Van Helsing."

About the Cosplay:

Originally for the Van Helsing Group at Expo but that fell through, still an awesome costume to make and I really enjoy cosplaying her :)

Budget: £35
Actual Cost: £34.18

I've made all the cosplay myself bar the wig and earrings; the dress is mostly hand sewn together and consists of over 5meters of fabric, the earrings were painted pink as they were white I made the little details on the front from scraps of ribbon, I made the necklace from scratch, I filled the fangs to fit my own teeth :)

Worn at:

MCM Expo October 2010

It's gonna be epic =) I bought a wig for her instead of using my own hair (it's errm falling out at the moment and I dunno if it'll stop before expo .. bald/semi bald is not a good look for a cosplay xD) and the wig was a bargain can't wait to test it out!

Oh my this is incredible!!! I can't believed i missed you >_< i might have to steal your dress and dye it green for Verona lol Did you gather the fabric to get it to drape like that??

Frederica la Noir posted on 2 November, 2010 - 13:49
Yep the fabric's gathered, I used 5meters of pink fabric on the dress xD and 95% is hand sewn lol my fingers were hurting by the end. When everyone's got their cosplays done we'll defo have to have a photoshoot it'd be epic :) xx

just wanna comment to high five you for the dedication of these photos - sub zero temperatures and you still maintained your aleera face :) One of my fav cosplays of yours and the photos turned out amazing :D

Wow cosplay looks fantastic. Those pics are Fab! Did you have your vampire teefies in for this shoot?

Frederica la Noir posted on 14 December, 2010 - 21:06
Thankies :) there would have been more photo's but this was a couple of weeks ago when we were getting snow so it was litteraly freezing D: so had to stop after a few minutes I couldn't feel my hands! I didn't have them and still don't, my bf has them (long story) and doesn't know where they are so looks like I'll have to buy some before the next shoot! I love my fangs had to file them to fit my teeth so I'm a bit peeved at the mister for losing them. xxx

ohhh my god!! this is amazing!! you look STUNNING!!! i always wanted to cosplay her but could never get away with it, but she suits you so much <3

Ranma1-2 posted on 14 December, 2010 - 23:55
aha, so thats why I couldnt see the teeth in the photos. They are just the icing on the cake though. I look forward to seeing this in Oct. :) btw when you get your new set prob the first set will turn up. :P

This looks so amazing. I love the photo. You look stunning and like your straight out of the movie.

Quinzel posted on 2 March, 2011 - 01:12
Oh snap, this is why I should look through costume lists and not just click on the ones on the front page XD. I keep missing things D=. The dress is stunning! The brides' dresses had a lot of movement - I think that's what made them so beautiful - and it looks like you've captured that really well :).
