Blood: The Last Vampire

Last Updated: 04-29-2011


I choose this cosplay mainly because it's one of my favorite anime and my sister will be cosplaying Saya (blood the last vampire version). It'll debut at NDK 2010.

I'm basing most of this costume on the anime version of Blood the Last Vampire, but some parts like the feet are modeled after the Blood+ chiropterans. I chose to do a wingless chiropteran cause the wings looked complicated and I'd like to keep this as simple as possible for now. I'd like to do a full body suit, but Im running out of time o_o;

Breakdown of cosplay:
*gloves (brown fabric with clawed fingers)
*shoe covers (brown fabric also with clawed toes)
*mask (foam ears and jaws in brown and red fabric)
*body suit (didn't get to so just going to wear shirt and jeans)

I made this cosplay almost completely by hand. I used a sewing machine to enforce my hand stitching.

I have decided to wear this cosplay at Nan Desu Kan 2010; Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

*I'll post more photos eventually...

Okay... Now I'm finally working on the body suit. Using McCalls animal pattern I'll make the suit. Then I'll make the spine spikes and tail...

I'll try to be finished with the whole costume by January so I can show it off at SoDak Con... :)

Okay, my attempts with the body suit failed horribly enough that I have given up on this costume. Once I have more experience, I'll try again. I'll also be redoing the feet and gloves. I want to use foam instead of the plastic claws because it was difficult walking around and grabbing things with the plastic claws. The gloves were also way too tight and didn't allow my fingers much circulation. The shoe covers kept sliding up and off of my shoes. So I need to attach the covering to the shoe instead. Wow! That is alot of stuff to fix. :(
