Count of Monte Cristo / Gankutsuou
Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
Last Updated: 06-25-2008
Gankutsuou has been one of those cosplays that I've always said "man, I want to do that", but never really had the time, money, or belief in my skills to even try. For looking so simple, there was a lot to consider while making it. There were so many times during construction that I absolutely despised this costume. But it doesn't feel challenging unless you hate what you're making at least once during the process.
In the end, there is little I would change or redo about this ensemble. I am so happy with how it came out, and that I was fortunate enough to have such amazing cosplayers for friends. Holy shit, I am so proud of this group.
As far as wear in the future, I originally rigged the cane for LED, but ran out of time. I plan on having a cane that lights up by the next time I wear this. I'd also like to redo the cape in black velvet, to match the suit, but I ran out of a budget before Fanime.
