You said "a little Trinity Blood costume" in your journal, but I really wasn't expecting this! *___* I've never seen someone cosplaying as Ludwig either. It doesn't look like a "little costume" at all to me the black and white references must have been quite difficult to follow! Very original and well done, as usual, and the photo has the perfect setting!
I've seen Japanese cosplay of Ludwig, though it was rather very after the illustration (it had white coat), and I haven't met this version cosplay either. I put a lot of thoughts in the color of the coat and settled upon the color that similar real life coats have. The setting was another problem, but I managed to find good plays for session)
In my humble opinion, I think blue was the perfect choice, and also the fabric and the trim look historically accurate. I hope more photos will pop out! ^^ (and I'm happy for you for the Warhammer photoshooting too! ) I'll send you my Father Leòn in a tuxedo next time! (hell, no. I won't stand the view of my boyfriend with that frilly shirt. XDDDD)
