Vampire Hunter D

Last Updated: 09-26-2007

An approach to D that is influenced mostly from an Amano print. My first and favorite cosplay.

Parts and Construction:

Greatcoat: Black moleskine, interfaced and lined. Originally intended to be my winter coat, but it conveniently worked with the costume.

Cape: Black satin lined with gold polyester. Inner stripe design fromed with black bias tape. Outer edge embellished with gold and black triangles.

Hat: Black wool felt interfaced with non-fusible peltex. Gold polyester lining. If you aren't familiar with peltex, get familiar with it, because it can be a costumer's best friend.

Scarf: Peacock feather and triangle motif as seen in an Amano print. Machine-embroidered and embellished in gold, white and black. Tassles at either end.

Bracers: Black moleskine stiffened with peltex and trimmed with black piping. Hand flap is held to thumb with elastic loop. Hand-made wire hooks fasten body.

Sword: Wood, purchased (handmade at local fair). Paint, leather handgrip, and tassle fashioned by myself.

Armor: Constructed with plaster bandages spread over a framework of window screen. Spike shaped from newspaper and plastered. Painted black with silver trim and finished with acrylic gloss. I highly reccomend this method for making armor - It's inexpensive, easy, and STRONG. Plus, it looks pretty darn good, If I do say so myself.

Accesories: All pendants and gems polymer clay with arcrylic gloss. Various hooks and catches formed from wire.
