I was never that happy with my Integral costume as it originally was. When I was asked to be in a Hellsing group for 2012 I wasnít sure if I really wanted to bring back this costume since the jacket didnít fit me very well and I didnít really like my original wig. I was able to purchase a new wig from my friend Amy and Ammie (who asked me to be in the group) offered to make me a new tie for my costume. My original tie was kind of a mess and my new tie matches the reds she used in her awesome Alucard costume. :3 She also helped me style the high bangs into the wig in her hotel room at the con and that turned out very nicely.

When I found my original jacket for Integral in the back of my closet, I was quite dismayed by the size issue and I planned to alter it. Before I altered it, however, I discovered that my little brother had a much nicer and more fitting black jacket that he had outgrown that I could use for the costume. I sewed on the gold buttons from my old jacket on my new one although I had to skew the buttons a bit on the front of the blazer to match the way Integralís jacket is buttoned. I even purchased a joke shop cigar to complete the look.

Pretty much every element of the costume (aside from the glasses) was new for 2012 and I love how the costume looks now. Itís a huge improvement over the old version! Together with Jukebox as Seras, ReJecT001 as Pip, Ammie as Alucard and The Letter Jay as Anderson, (and a guest appearance by a Walter) we had a fantastic group at Anime North 2012. I never dreamed that I would be part of a big Hellsing group and this was really fun. :3 I think the Hellsing group was my favourite Cosplay experience of AN 2012. The group dynamic was awesome and Cosplaying Integral is very empowering. The suit makes me feel ten feet tall and very commanding! I can definitely see this as a costume that I would like to re-wear again in the future.
