Black Cat (manga)
Last Updated: 05-29-2008
I didn't want to make Sven's Vanilla Suit, so I went to a K&G's store. They sell new and used suits, but I wanted to go with new because I wanted to spend money on myself. I bought the suit around the time when I got my taxes back, so I had a lot of money to spend. I bought vanilla dress pants, a dark blue dress shirt, a red tie, and a vanilla blazer. The whole thing cost around $200. To finish up the costume I bought a silver briefcase online for about $40. I already had dress shoes, so I didn't buy any of those. Chibi-Soujiro made my hat for me, so I could save another $40. The hat was sown flawlessly, and he even added some green hair under the hat, so it has a built in wig right under it. The wig sown on the bottom actually was sown to have little spikes coming down, and even three strands that go right in between my eyes and it swirves to the left a little(exactly how his hair is in the anime/manga). I also have a gun that goes inside my blazer that I bought for around $15. I also have a fake cigarette that I rolled up(since I hate smoking and Sven smokes, I had to get a fake one). The eye patch was made from scratc h which took a whole 5 minutes to do. I also have a newspaper inside the briefcase, incase someone wants a picture of me with my newspaper and a cup of coffee. Ask for any pose from the anime/manga because I have all the materials I need to do them with. All I want now is an adorable Eve to tease me ^_^. All in all, I'm proud of this costume because I absolutely LOVE Sven Vollfied's character. He's not the main character in the anime/manga, but his gentleman's code, cool attitude, and all around nice guy persona is what makes this my favorite costume. I wish I took more pictures of myself. I get so excited wearing this costume that I didn't take any pictures of myself. I tried relying on forum posters, but it looks like the people who took my photo didn't want to share <:-(
