Amazingly detailed costume! The guns and fangs are also very very well done!
The only thing I'm noticing is the structure of the coat. The collar and shoulders of a real trench coat are usually lined with a thick,starched fabric so everything lies evenly, but your collar seems to be a bit soft and unlined. Also, adding a lining on the edges and waist seams will create a stronger shape, making it seem more polished and masculine. The trick with big costume pieces like the jacket, is it's best if it doesn't look "costumey". Alucard would be wearing this everyday, so it should be built sturdy, as if you just plucked it from the characters everyday attire.

As for the props, OH MY GOOOOD. THOSE ARE BEAUTIFUL. I can tell you've taken special care in creating them. The craftsmanship shows. They're lovely, and honestly I think they're amazing as is.

The last thing, makeup,wig etc. It's quite well done, your fangs are great, as well as the contacts, and if you're wearing makeup, it's well done. If not, you have some very nice skin haha. The wig is well styled, although it looks a bit small on your head(this happens all the time with guys) causing your natural hair/sideburns to peek out. This can be fixed by either buying a larger wig or adding wig extensions to the sides and framing of the wig.

Other than those few details, this is an insanely good costume. And bro, don't sweat things too much. The things I'm mentioning are just small ideas, you look great as is. So be proud of this costume, and have fun!
