This was a really fun costume to do, since The Count of Monte Cristo is possibly my favorite book, and Gankutsuou is an excellent rendition of it. Because everything is made of royal velvet, it's really hot / heavy to wear. But worth it! For the lining of the cape, I found a base fabric, took a screen cap of the anime, drew out the pattern and printed it onto heat transfer paper. There were about fourty transfers total, so it took a long time to do!
