Ohyes. I saw Van Helsing in all of his leather and was like "You could stick Mina in her leather bit on the other side of him and she'd look as if she'd fit RIGHT in there with Anna Valerius.

My luck, however, is that I'd get mistaken for Anna..because in that outfit Mina doesn't wear her red scarf....and that's Mina's signature piece....

Don't insult VAn Helsing by grouping it as anime. It's not anime leave it alone.

-Sigh-

It does look like an anime come to life, but this is the other section....we can talk about it if we like. Anyway, I wish I could join you, but I'm stuck here in IL and my Dracula costume is nowhere near finished now. :sulk:

Well, I'm definitely aiming for Halloween as the finish date. And I got some help from the costume shop here regarding the wig. Now all I have to do is figure out how to restyle it...

restyleing a wig can be a pain in the butt. It took me a week to get my sephiroth wig just right. But if you get a good wig it should be easy to play with. Oh by the way does any one have any good pictures of Van Helsings weapons??

Hi, Me and my buds are thnkig of going to san diego for the comiccon. I liked the movie but Hugh Jackman character looks like a live action Vampire Hunter D. we would go for it. :cheers:

That is very true, Erik. Vampire Hunter D was the first thing that poped to my head when I saw Van Helsing; but they do have gorgeous outfits, so I say go for it to those who are doing Van Helsing cosplays at CC. Let us know if your will take your outfits to CC so we can stalk you and annoy you with pictures ^-^.

I remember the story behind it is that Sommers had never seen VHD until he was in the middle of filming. He's also not a fan of the internet....

but he is a castlevaina fan wich i thought was kinda cool. The film did have a castlevaina feel to it with Anna's family as the vampire hunters and what not. But thanks again Drackt for the pics. What im going to do is buy the toy crossbow and take it apart and use some of the parts on a real crossbow. When its all done ill send you some pictures.

No prob. There is an in-joke in the video game where he's in the library and finds books on the Belmont family AND the murder of Pharoah Seti I by High Priest Imhotep...(I was giggling at that one! :crylaugh: )

Hey- is anyone planning on wearing Van Helsing costumes to anime iowa this year? I know it's not on the west coast, but it'd be fun to see if anyone is attending in vampire huntin' gear.
Also, where are you finding reference pictures? The brides of dracula and detail shots of Anna are hard to come by...
