View Full Version : Ciel costume help

09-10-2010, 02:59 PM
So I've been really really wanting to cosplay Ciel particularly in this outfit. (http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd250/bloodyangel_1/Kuroshitsuji/Ciel%20Phantomhive/Ciel-2.jpg)
But I've kinda ran into a couple problems.

First, I have no idea whether to go with a grey-ish wig or a darker blue one. I feel like a more blue one would be more accurate but that a grey colored one would fit this particular outfit more. Opinions?

Second, is the bottom of the outfit. I don't really know how to go about doing this or what would look best.
I think I want to do shoes and tights like in this (http://i581.photobucket.com/albums/ss260/thychi/CielDVD01.jpg) but besides that I'm a little lost.
If anyone has suggestions for what I should do about this part or patterns that would work, that would be wonderful.
Thanks C:

Ciel's hair has been argued so many times. xD
It's really up to you which one you want. I think the blue-gray is more acurate, but my friend's grey-haired Ciel looks really good, too. :9

I wish I could help with the outfit, but I don't have enough experiance with that. :'D

I'm not sure about the outfit (although I do like the idea of wearing boots like the ones in the other picture,) but here are my two cents on the wig color:

I honestly think which color is more accurate depends on the outfit/reference. His hair looks so different in different illustrations that it's like it changes color. If someone wanted a wig that could be used for lots of different Ciel outfits and asked me what color to get, I'd probably say to get a blue-gray one, since it seems like that's what the, err... most common? official? standard? color is.
However, for that specific outfit, I would go with a gray wig. In that illustration, his hair looks gray to me. I also think it'd work better with the rest of the look since everything else is in black and white. (If you have blue eyes or get blue contacts, it'll really stand out!)

Either way, good luck. ^^

Honestly, any color you want would work for his hair as long as it's in range from plain grey to dark blue or even black XD.

I agree with going for a blueish grey for that one, since that seems to be the color in that illustration, but you can also use some creative liberty. For example, I'm doing a different version of Ciel that has an almost entirely black color scheme. His hair looks black in the illustration for mine, but I thought that in order to add some color to the outfit (and save some money) I'd wear a dark/navy wig that I already own.

Apparently his hair colour changes depending upon which outfit he's wearing. My advice would be to go with the colour it is in the pic of the outfit you wanna do.

I personally love my Ciel wig because sometimes it'll look more blue but then sometimes it'll look really grey.

What I did is dye a silver wig with 2 BIC black permanent markers and half a bottle of rubbing alcohol. ^_^
