Hannibal Cosplays

When I say Hannibal, I mean the new TV series.
I am thinking about putting together both Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter cosplays.
I think the show is dark yet fun. Which would go the same for the cosplays.
I think it'd be even better if I got a friend to cosplay a stag ahaha

But anyone else thinking of cosplaying from Hannibal or already doing? I haven't seen too many cosplays.

...it's pretty much suits, isn't it? Probably the only way I could see getting at all recognized as the character is the iconic mask, orange jumpsuit and straightjacket.

I think cosplays from Hannibal are something that would require the cosplayer to really act in character in order to get the message across. So someone cosplaying as Hannibal would have to replicate Mads Mikkelsen's accent and voice almost perfectly and replicate Hugh Dancy's speech patterns that he uses as Will. I also think whoever cosplays these people would have to look a fair amount like them (or at least they'd have to be able to do makeup to look a fair amount like them) to make the cosplays work.
You could also incorporate some clever props with your cosplays too to get the message across. I think these cosplays would wonderfully as a photoshoot setup rather than for wandering around the convention. It would be pretty damn awesome if some cosplay group replicated one of the crime scenes in the show and used that for their photohsoot set.

It's a pirate's life for me! Savvy?

I think it's more than possible. If you are with another person cosplaying from it, it'll be even easier. (Imagine a Will and Hannibal walking around together!) you'd just have to be a little creative.

Make a lot of smart props, perhaps even antlers to wear on Will's head (I've seen it in a lot of fan art). Maybe play upon the golden 'pendulum' that swings whenever he reenacts/imagines the crime scenes.
Forks and knives for Hannibal, etc.

Perhaps splash some blood on things as well.

This was the Hannibal I did for Seishuncon, and people seemed to get it despite me not looking a damn thing like Mads. Then again I decided to go the silly route that featured a button that said "Serial Griller" (amongst other things).

I'd love to cosplay Freddie one day, but I'd never be able to find a wig as gorgeous as her hair. >w<

Great thread.

I'll be cosplaying as Will Graham later on this year. I've seen some Hannibal cosplays on Tumblr.

For anyone planning on cosplaying Freddie Lounds, I'd highly recommend this ebay seller: http://stores.ebay.com/WigsUS/_i.htm...&_sid=65942671

They sell a lot of really good "spiral curl" wigs (I've purchased a "spiral curl" wig from this seller without any problems so I think they are legit).

My best friend cosplayed as Hannibal (as well as Khan, Loki, Jim Moriarty, and The Master) for a spur-of-the-moment tumblr villains video we decided to film when my little sister visited from out of state: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koEUTrXE1yw

I've seen some really nice cosplays of Hannibal, Will Graham, and Abigail on tumblr as well.
