Costume: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/439578/

Construction: The costume its self was made by my girlfriend, member Pink_Panda, the guns and glasses were made by me. The boots and wig were purchased online, the sites and styles escape me, but I could probably find the information if anyone is interested.

As usual we waited until the last minute to start on our costumes even though we were set on Hellsing for our AWA 2012 costumes, so some things are very clear to us that we need to either fix or complete.
Known issues costume: -Cleaning up seams and further tailoring of red trench.
-Adding a faux cuff/buttons to the sleeves of the red trench.
-Adding a third button to the double breasted suit coat.
-Making the hat will come eventually, simply for completion purposes.
-Possibly adding a printed pattern lining with the demonic eyes that appear in the shadows that Alucard controls. As of now the lining is a black satin material.
-More for myself, but... loose weight. I'm too pudgy for Alucard's slender frame. >_<
Known issues guns: -Getting decals printed for the typeface on the sides. This was simply an issue of running out of time so the script was done hastily the night before the convention.
-Possibly thickening the guns, specifically at the slides, some people say they're too thin. When taking into account the ammunition the guns are supposed to chamber, I agree, however most reference pictures show the guns relatively thin. Even compared to normal pistols. I feel that this is a case of anime style vs real world accuracy...
-More detailed painting of the wood grain grips on Joshua.
-Even out the grip grooves on Joshua. As of now, the measurements are off and it bugs me...

With all that taken into account, please give me advise on some things I can work on to better portray everyone's favorite vampire. Thanks in advance.
