Hellsing: Queen of the Night by icequeenserenity Hellsing: Queen of the Night by icequeenserenity
It's like she's half human, half vampire: dust to dust
-Alucard, Hellsing

A full body compilation of my completed Blood Seras costume that shows the full view of the suit and arm. I love this costume to bits and pieces and I can't wait to wear it again! The Shadow Arm was entirely worth the week of Carpal Tunnel pain that it induced. :heart:
The suit is made of burgundy suiting fabric, which I interfaced and lined in the same fabric to give it militaristic stiffness and strength.  The cuffs were drafted and made by me, built from suede to add texture for the slight contrast in fabric.
The pattern I used for the jacket was heavily modified by me, sold at the time by Vogue patterns, but now I believe to be out of print (sadly!)  The pockets are all functional (which is a beautiful thing when you have little bits and pieces to carry around a convention) and there are seven curved darts in the back for style and shape.
The arm piece is made of foam rubber with an internal wire structure, along with red LED lights laced in to add an eerie glow effect.

Thank you!  This is an older one, but I added some more information to the description about the making of the costume; I realized that I hadn't really gotten into it and this as the best picture for it.  I'm glad you like it! :)

The costume is amazing! I have to point out one small detail that makes m especially proud to find this picture you have the patch on her shirt the correct colors! <3  Also  did you buy or make this and how in the world did you make the arm for it? :D so many questions lol xD (I'm possibly planning on cosplaying as her in  the summer of 2014))

Thank you very much for the comment! I apologize for not responding earlier, (I must have missed it before!) but since you're planning the costume for this coming year, hopefully this will still be relevant to you. :)
I made the entire costume, the suit and arm.  The suit was made of suiting fabric and is completely lined with the same fabric for that militaristic stiffness and strength.  I just added a little sentence on the description about the arm.  It's made of foam rubber with a wire structure for those pieces that extend out, along with LED lights throughout.  The patches were a gift from a friend, quite possibly purchased on Etsy.  Best of luck on cosplaying her when you do!  Have fun! :rose:

I absolutely love this! You're probably my favourite Seras cosplayer to date. I know some cosplayers don't share their prop making info, but if you don't mind sharing, what material did you use to make the arm?

I feel your pain on the pale part I honestly look like a corpse it sucks so much people at my school have labeled me a vampire! though im not certain if i should take it as a compliment or not ...either way another triumph!

P.S I would love another karaoke session with you and ginger!

Thank you! We're working on another little audiovid with Seras and Integra again, similar to the Karaoke, only better this time. :heart:
About school, it happens! In highschool, there was a rumor floating around that I was a vampire because of my complexion and taste in fiction. :rofl: It ended up bleeding into my adult life, so I eventually just rolled with it. :evileyes: It's fun!

Everything about the cosplay is spectacular. :heart:
The shadow arm is just WOW....I'm speechless!
The COSPLAY is amazing and you (omg) made it yourself. wow. (can't imagine doing that).
Your wig blows me away. It's styled so nice. :)
And last but not least, you are in character and you make a wonderful Seras Victoria.
