Rachel Alucard by GS-Force Rachel Alucard by GS-Force
Costume: Rachel Alucard - BlazBlue

I know, I know, I can't think of titles. :P Well, the lighting in the hotel was a bit wacky, but I liked the shot! I loved working on the costume. I bought the boots, and the umbrella (Only as a base!) I used ribbon to make the shoe laces, and I made my own covering to the umbrella (I will get a better shot of it).

I made everything else. I made the devil plushy guy into a wristband, kind of. I wear him like a bracelet, with a pipe cleaner! The shirt, the skirt, the hoopskirt underneath, the hair bows, the velvet bow around my neck... phew! This truly was a test to my sewing abilities. And I am very proud of the final result.

I am NOT however proud of the wig. It was my first attempt at making a wig, so to speak. I bought a base wig (which already had the double ponytail split) and 2 super long hair extensions which I had to straighten and attach to the wig. I'm not one for working with wigs and hair, so it was an okay start. I would like to have done better, but you got to start somewhere! :)

As a side note, I edited my eye color. She has red eyes, and I don't wear contacts. No need!

I'll get more pictures soon, but here is a teaser shot. Hope you enjoy!! =D

I really love the pattern and design of the character's dress. Not to mention those rockin' boots, they give some amazing height.

Well thank you!! I tend to think I pose vampires quite well.. XD I really want to use my umbrella when it rains, but I don't think that would hold up well, but I could try. :) But I'm glad you like it, that wig was a pain though! =P

You seemed to do all right walking around in them, but then again I only saw you wearing them for like 20 minutes and most of the time you weren't walking. xD

I think you did a wonderful job on the costume, it came out so great!

As for the wig, I don't think it's bad at all! You did great for a beginner at wig styling, trust me. I've seen much worse LOL

Wacky? For me it was almost perfect. Photographies from gothic, dark or other series of art that uses the shadow tematic should use darkness. Well, I don't know the character, but I do not recommend platform boots in most of cosplays, only when the character use that kind of boot. About the Umbrella, I don't see the top, but it looks good for the Gothic Lolita character. And about the contacts, if the cosplay was only to photo, ok, but if it was for the cosplay, it should be considerated.

Well, considerating everything I said in this and others shoots about you, it's a great cosplay made by a great cosplayer. I invite you to know my, as we call in Brazil, "cospobre" (Mix of "cosplay" and "poor" words).

Thanks for your time

Well thank you for your comments! The more I look at the shot, the more I agree with you in the shadows helping the photo give a more Gothic look. And I don't normally do platform boots, but the reference pictures I had, she was wearing them. They are extremely hard to walk in, they make me 5 inches taller! ^^; But I'm glad you like it!! =D

It's fine to see your comments. In the words of Shinsei (A monk in the RPG Legend of the Fiver Rings) "Criticism is kindness in disguise".

But, since the character uses platform, it's ok. And see, you became taller! If you are shorty, you became tall ^^

I can't play as her for my life, but Rachel's pretty cool nonetheless xD

Beautifully done! Looks like it took a lot of hard work and dedication.
Amazing job with everything. The dress, the boots, even the wig. I know you're not proud of it but I think it looks fine C;

Can't wait to see the rest!

Haha, awesome! I actually didn't know who she was until my friend told me to cosplay from Blazblue! ^^; I also hear she is hard to play, must be the poofy dress, hard to fight in that, while holding an umbrella. XD But thanks for the compliments!! :hug:
