View Full Version : Hellsing/ Seras Victoria MANGA VERSION question!
08-22-2005, 09:27 PM
A few questions on the Seras Victoria Hellsing uniform.
First of all: In the manga, is her uniform yellow? And has anyone done a yellow Seras costume before?
Second: In vol. 7 of the manga, (for those of you who have read it translated or have seen this issue...) When Seras goes, a little, well, loco...
She looks like this:
Seras w/ Wings (http://www.bloodknight.net/Manga/Pictures/Seras77.jpg)
Dark Seras (http://www.bloodknight.net/Manga/Pictures/Seras78.jpg)
This second pic doesn't do dark Seras justice. She looks a lot darker and her stockings are all ripped up. Do you think I could pull off a dark Seras in black pleather and big bat wings? I already have ideas on how to do her arm all broken up. Have you seen a costume like this before?
Some suggestions and comments are welcome! I'd love to hear your opinions on these 2 costumes!

I'm not sure if it's yellow in the manga, but I do know that the covers have it as yellow. I've seen a yellow one done before, too. Try searching the gallery here or at cosplaylab.com. But only one, IIRC. The yellow is pretty rare.
I've never seen a Dark Seras before, that would be neat. I think you could certainly do it with wings instead of turing your arm all weird like that. Never seen that done before.

o thank you! i really want to do it because i havent seen it either. i really think it would be really cool to do something for the first time!
EDIT: any other yellow themed suggestons, the mystery must be solved...

Ah, thank you for hotlinking to my site. The bandwidth suckage is always appreciated.
Seras in the manga has a yellow uniform and blue eyes, and yes, lots of people have cosplayed it before.
Blood Seras is a red color, as she is stained from head to toe with the blood of (_insert character name_) who died the chapter beforehand. So...just her regular uniform drenched in blood. That's been cosplayed too...someone at Otakon did it.

The Seras in my group recently did Dark Seras.
Pleather would be bad. The uniform is dark because it is stained with pip's blood so I would go for a reddish black. Know why? There is an action figure that has that color of uniform coming out in resin in a few months.

Silvana- Where did you find that pic of the seras figure? I have the same one, except it doesn't have the cannon. This one does, I am confused.
Yes, she has a yellow uniform with blue eyes in the manga and she will in the upcoming OVA. http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=58065&page=2

aww so that's who Seras victoria is, i like that name, it's beeautiful.
0h ps, i met a girl name Seras_Victoria in Animelab.com
In addition to having a yellow uniform, her hair is also blonder. In the exisiting TV series, it's more of a reddish-blonde.
Her eyes are blue in both, though in the anime they are red when she's using her vampiric powers.

Oh thank you guys so much for all that info!
That picture of the figures helped alot Daguru! I think I'll do a dark Seras. I was just wondering about the yellow version because I have a ton of yellow fabric lying around for a Faye valentine commission that was cancelled on me. I'd rather go with all the Manga version Seras's because I was really dissapointed in the anime. I can't wait for the OVA though, sounds like it will be taking on the original plot!
EDIT: Oh, and I got the pic of that yellow Seras figure on google.com. just google image search seras victoria and the picture is on the first page. Click on the thumbnail and it will tell you from which site it came from!

Her eyes do turn red once she becomes true undead. For doing the bloody Ceras, it might be good to also have a bit of fake blood on yourself. She does do a pretty messy job finishing off the nazis, one in particular, and the mercenaries were also splattered with the blood of one of the nazis when they were standing some distance away. A small smear of blood on the lips could be good too. It may seem like im really over-suggesting the blood, but in moderation, it would look good, and the glove should be very much blood covered.
Oh, and if you want more detail from the manga scan you showed, i can level it up a bit.

That would be very helpful! I think the idea of a blood spattered costume would be fun!
