View Full Version : Characters from Victorian themed anime/manga?

02-19-2009, 03:52 PM
So, I would (at some point) like to do a cosplay that's actually based on an anime or manga character, and I think I would have the most fun making and wearing something that had a least a little Victorian flair (yes, I'm obsessed). Does anyone have any suggestions for shows and manga I should look into? I know of Emma: a Victorian Romance, but are there others? Steampunk suggestions are also welcome.

there is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Portrait_de_Petit_Cossette

and then Chobits some times has a few... um... oh Kurohitsuji is a new one and definitely something for you to browse in

Kuroshitsuji is what I was going to suggest too.

Metropolis, the anime version, has a steampunk theme.

Thanks! I was just looking at the Kuroshituji thread and I think that's exactly the kind of thing I had in mind! ^_^

Victorian Romance Emma?

How about Godchild?

Perhaps Trinity Blood (http://www.flickr.com/photos/26611225@N05/2757101554/)?

Uh! Uh! Pandora Hearts! Lots of dukes and duchettes.. I can't spell XD And there's also The rose of Versailles...

I would highly suggest the Cain Saga and Godchild. They are straight out of Victorian England...and awesome to boot!

Kuroshitsuji definitely, it's set in Victorian England, so win win all the way.

Apart from that...I got nothing....

There's always the Rozen Maiden dolls. :D

You could also try Earl and Fairy

I second Pandora Hearts and Kuroshitsuji.

Also perhaps Meine Liebe.

Rose of Versailles! =D I think they have exactly what you are looking for, but I could be wrong. ><

I was actually about to suggest that. Hakushaku to Yousei (its Japanese title) is actually based in Victorian England <3

Kuroshitsuji works too...

Pandora Hearts is more of a pseudo-Victorian setting, the outfits were probably inspired by Victorian clothing, but definitely has its own fantasy twist on it.

D.Gray-man has somewhat of a Victorian setting, but unless you're cosplaying Miranda in that brown dress during the Rewinding Town arc...the main characters don't really wear things in the style you would be looking for. Well, I guess Allen does for casual wear...

Rose of Versailles, while pretty, is actually more 18th centry, not Victorian, which is mid to late 19th century. ;) Not that this is BAD, but if you're firm on era, that may good to know.

KARNEVAL. [Although this might be a stretch. I love Karneval so here we go]
Gareki is sort of steampunk inspired because of the goggles...
Hirato & Tsukumo ->
etc... etc..

By the way, I just stumbled on something recently and thought of this thread...it's something called "Emma: A Victorian Romance" or something similar. Of course, go figure I can't remember where I saw it now.. but it looked somewhat on the older side but very Victorian.
