So I have images of Ceras's Hellsing Organization uniform from the original anime series, does anyone have any reference images for the OVA series? If so, I'd greatly appreciate links :)

Thanks

It's very much the same, minus the colours. Major differences: yellow uniform, khaki gloves, and white stockings.

I noticed it was like an icky yellow...I guess that's the kind of fabric I would need to look for or would I need to dye a white fabric? O_O;;

Well, I would be creative and go for a darker, flat colour yellow, only because it would add a nice touch. :3

And it's hard to tell when I watched the OVA, but would you use a light or dark khaki? Most of the series is in the night...so I guess dark? Probably go better with the yellow better too I presume?

Thank you for your help btw :)

No prob! (I look forward to seeing more OVA cosplayers!)

I would go with a medium to dark khaki, sure, she is in the dark a lot, and that may be the cause, but it doesn't seem very clean cut or military if it's too bright! :P

My main concern with OVA Ceras/Seras cosplayers is that it looks too animated.

Hahaha, that's funny. Be animated if you're from the original anime...OVAs...you shouldn't really "animate" your character since it's technically the manga versions -shrugs- So, I agree with you there ^__~

Hopefully I will go with this cosplay in the future! My con ended today and my next one is in Sept, so I have some time.

Again, I greatly appreciate your help!!!!

I'm aiiong for OVA Arucard yet I have still been unable to watch to OVA!! AHH!!

Looks too animated as in the colors are too rich to be in a real world?!
Ya... hmm.
If at all possible get fabric swatches and see what they look like at night maybe?
Maybe match the colors in the night and tha tmight be easier?

Yeah, I think I'm going to need bold colors, because with all I've watched from the original anime vs. OVA, the OVA is supposed to be more "real life" looking...

I think I'm going to have to go with the fabric swatch idea! Great suggestion, I just hadn't thought of it yet. Now to figure out what kind of fabric I really should use *hrmmmm*

Well, when I say, "look too animated," I mean literally. Unrealistic. Like, shall I say it... cartoons.

But anyhow, I like the idea of bolder, darking colours as opposed to bright colours especially for Hellsing! ("Bluuuh I am a vampyre! :F ")

Are you saying something like this?

Because to me, that's too bright of a color compared to the OVA, but I definately applaud the craftsmanship

Ditto! She looks cute and did a great job, but I definitely would have gone a bit more matt/dark and uniform-styled. :3

I'm not sure if you still want OVA ref. images, but Blood Knight has a whole bunch of screencaps from the OVA.

Thank you all so much for your help and suggestions! Now I have one last question, does anyone happen to know someplace where I can get a better image of the patch on Ceras/Seras' uniform? I'm going to continue looking so hopefully I'll find something but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Again, thank you all so much!!!! You've been very helpful!!!
