View Full Version : Trinity Blood... help?

07-17-2009, 03:32 PM
So just five minutes ago, I've decided to change from Kayako (THe Grudge) to Abel Nightroad From Trinity Blood For cosplay. I really would love to cosplay as him, but the thing is, the premade costumes are too expensive, and there are ABSOLUTELY NO pattern's even close to it. If I could have any help or ideas, that'd be great!


UPDATE: I have a quick question. I might be able to afford the Empire Uniform off of e-bay, but who wears it? I haven't gotten that far in the series, I prefer to read the manga, but if you could give me a name, that'd be great!

The Empire outfit you found on e-bay was for Ester. If you still intend on buying that outfit, that's who it's for. (Although, the thought of Abel in drag gets me every time. XD )

If you'd still prefer to go as Abel, I suggest searching through this thread here:
There's a ton of info on patterns and techniques. And if the search is too confusing you can always ask away, there are multiple people there who would be more than happy to help.

For starters, I can say with the utmost certainty that Butterick 6844 is the go-to pattern base for the cassocks. It takes a little modifying to put in the panels and get the feel to what you want, but it is still the closest you can get. Any more than that you'll have to ask an Abel for help, since Leon's a very special cookie so most of his stuff is different than the typical AX agent.
