Undertaker

manga ch. 59-63

Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)

Last Updated: 02-01-2012


I was never really a fan of Undertaker in the earlier volumes, but seriously, how can you read the ship arc and NOT want to cosplay him? ^_^;

The most fun I had with this costume -- besides being in character -- is all the props and detail work. The Victorian hair lockets, the jewelry, the prosthetic work for the face, the sotoba, the skeleton scythe... And let's not forget the bone-shaped sugar cookies! (Oh yes, I have them!) Plus I had a skull flask, spiderweb fingernails, a gravestone prop and other fun accessories to pose with.

My overcoat is huge; I wanted to be able to replicate the image where he whips out the sotoba, so it has extra panels in the skirt to make it a giant flared mass of wind effect. I think the bottom hem ended up somewhere around 12 feet in circumference. The sleeves are also appropriately oversized; they're about knee-length when hanging down (so I can wear them over the hands, as he does when in Undertaker mode, or pushed up for fighting, as he does when in Shinigami mode).

I really enjoy this costume, except for the fact that the hair lockets -- which he inexplicably wears thrown over his shoulder for the duration of the ship battle -- tangle really badly in my wig.
