Kuroshitsuji Cosplay

Kuroshitsuji is basically almost unheard of right now I think. Though its going to become an anime soon so its popularity should increase. But because of that I think it has a really nice fan base right now! I even saw a couple cosplays from this series on cosplay.com! So I'm thinking I might attempt to cosplay Ciel Phantomhive, in particular,This version.
So I'm wondering, the purple cloth thing Ciel (the boy in red) is sitting on, is that part of the outfit?

Is anyone else planning a cosplay from this series?

Yes, that is part of the outfit; you can tell by the black lace along the bottom and the fact that it's not just a rectangular cut along the bottom like a blanket, sheet, or sash would be.
And...is that really a guy?

Ah! Your right! So I guess I'll be looking for shiny purple fabric on my next trip to Fabricland then. Yes, it really is a guy.

Yayness! another Kuroshitsuji fan <3
My group's debut is next year, though we started planning in April ^^;

I want to know-is the cloth really purple? It looks brownish to me (I'm slightly colour-blind though).

Personally it looks like a cross between purple and brown to me. Since the pillows that Ciel is sitting on looks to be more brown to me. I'm probably going to use satin for that.

And yay! Another Kuroshitsuji fan! I think Kuroshitsuji is going to be a good hit when it comes out and get lots of cosplayers. Since when I looked on Curecos, there were over 440 cosplay images for Kuroshitsuji.

Actually, I think someone cosplayed this version on the site, and they had the cloth attached to the outfit. You could PM them and ask if you want.

Ever since I got the manga I've been dying to make one of Ciel's outfits, even though I'm kind of taller than a 12 year old XD I really liked the dress he wore during the Jack the Ripper case, and I thought his paperboy outfit was pretty cute.

I looked at cosplays of that version of Ciel, and I noticed almost all of them put the purple cloth thing so I'll definately be sewing that on.

I adored the dress Ciel wore during he Jack the Ripper case as well, I originally wanted to sew that version until I realized how much fabric would be needed. (I'm officially broke after Fan Expo) Since I'm going to be buying a wig for Ciel, I decided I might as well try to make the strawberry version of him after.

Haha, yeah when I saw how much fabric would be needed, I got kind of put off. But my friend found this fabric store that's in a bad neighborhood, but the fabric is soooo cheap. Then again the dress would probably require a hoop under it, or some pettycoats...
Is it just me, or does Ciel seem to wear roses...a lot? On just about every one of his outfits...

It seems that either way Ciel's dress will cost a couple shiny pennies. I never thought about the hoop skirt, though now that you mention it, its probably necessary. Since without it the dress would simply be limp, and not have the poof.

Ciel does wear roses a lot. I think the only one Ciel doesn't have a rose on is his strawberry one. Besides that, roses, roses, and more roses. Thats probably why I went to Dollarama and stocked up on fake roses.

I'm hoping to do something Kuroshitsuji in the future. XD I love the series, but I'm not sure who to do. Grell or something, maybe, but eh. We'll see.

Seconded! Grell is such an insane character. Though I really want to see someone cosplay Madame Red, though once again the price of fabric will be murderous.

Where can I get some good reference pictures of Red and Grell? XD I've been looking, but it's such a pain to find HQ raws or scans.

I just found some scans online and cleaned them up. If anyone needs any reference pictures, ask me and I'll find and hunt them down! I hope these helped.

Haha, I'm the complete opposite. Most of the cosplays I've seen so far don't have the cloth attached.
Here's one of them: http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/n...s/0015fq2k.jpg

I suppose it's better doing without it if you're going to a con that is going to be crowded, or else people might trample or trip over it. I think I'd cry if people step on my costume..(T^T)
Or maybe you can make it detachable? You can put it on during a photoshoot but take it off when you wear it to a con. Just my opinion~ ^_^
