View Full Version : Cheap Ciel Cosplay
07-06-2011, 12:57 AM
Okay so I have wanted to cosplay Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler for a while now but just do not have the money. The cheap ones I have found online are not all that well made. I was just wondering where other Ciel cosplayers got their costumes?

Honestly, it will always be cheaper to make your own since you don't have to pay commissioners for their time and shipping fees. And if you do something like Ciel's newsboy outfit or something, you could possibly get all those pieces at Goodwill stores or other thrift shops and come out pretty cheap. Once you get into his really fancy, over-the-top outfits, you are looking at some money going into those. I'm actually in the process of making a Ciel costume for someone and he paid me $300 for materials and my time. Ciel just isn't a character that you can cosplay cheaply. You can be economical, but not really cheap.

I know it really isnt something I can do cheaply. It was kind of stupid of me to ask but I figured, why not give it a try? I think I will just make it. Thank you both!

Well, if this thread isn't dead yet then I might have a suggestion, there's this site called fm-anime.com and they have some really really high quality costumes you might want to check out, this ones my personal favorite ---> http://www.fm-anime.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_145&products_id=644&zenid=4de0c0ae0e5ab5c181641e85bd10e969
Our ciel bought this and it's really wonderful, nice fabric and it fit her perfectly, anyway, I hope this helped, good luck d(^w^)b
