Sorcerous Stabber Orphen
Last Updated: 10-20-2012
Sometime around...I wanna say spring, my friend found her DVD with the first three episodes of Orphen on it and insisted I watch it since she wanted to cosplay Orphen. I watched it and the minute I saw him in all his quirky, rather fruity glory, I knew I HAD to cosplay Hartia.
This costume is probably the one I've put the most work into, modifying my coat. Originally, it buttoned off to the side and had 12 GIANT UGLY GOLD BUTTONS going down the front. If you look at some of my early pictures as Charden Flamberg, you can see what it looked like before. I took the buttons off the front of the coat and the hood off the back, then I stitched the collar down so it looked like Hartia's. Then I stitched down the flaps in the front so it would actually button up the front and look more accurate. I trimmed it in red bias tape, added some snaps up the front and replaced the buttons on the pockets with some less noticable ones and viola!
The necklace I made out of silver clay, the pants (the right ones) were purchased at Ross, and the wig was purchased from eBay and cut/styled by my friend Phantomhoodie, who will soon be joining me as Orphen and Lai. Hartia is such a fun character to cosplay, even if he is far too fruity for his own good. I'd like to do more of his outfits someday.
