Sebastian Michaelis

Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji

Last Updated: 11-12-2012

Another cosplay I am wearing from a very popular series, but one that I am very happy to be in regardless. This cosplay was a very physically and emotionally exhausting one to put together - and at one point, I honestly didn't think it was going to happen, despite the fact that I got an early start on it.

Sebastian of course is not entirely made by me, but like one of my other cosplays, Soushi, I did have a good hand in helping out with it. He's a combination of thrift store luck and my seamstress' and my dedication, and I think it worked. The tuxedo shirt, shoes, and cuff links were all purchased at a thrift store for a wicked deal. My seamstress and I set to work on selecting a women's suit jacket pattern for the tail coat, which was altered and combined with a waist coat pattern for the shape of the bottom, and simply drafted out a set of tails to attach onto the back. The waist coat itself was slightly more challenging and required cutting and piecing together two different patterns to get the backless look with the shawl collar. I helped cut out pattern pieces, cloth pieces, pressed things, and sewed on all of the buttons. I was also in charge of accessories.
As far as making a costume that hasn't been a complete "thrift store throw together" Sebastian's been the most I've helped with and I hope he's been worth it.
