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)
My friend-interpreter whe read the novel in Japanese, told me about the part where Ludwig makes appearence, and I understood that I must make this cosplay. I'm very glad that there are fans who recognize this character. Thank you!
You're very welcome. I'm glad that there are people who will cosplay from Trinity Blood, never mind a character only found in the novels! (So far anyway, he might actually make an appearance in the manga someday...)
This character is missing in anime version. It's the character from the novel and the cosplay was made basing on the illustration in the novel. I don't watch the anime either and prefer the light-novels (ranobe) and the manga.
Thank you! I really wanted to make this cosplay, I was very inspired by information about this character (some of novels were retelled for me by my Japanese-speaking friend). I like this kind of characters, though this kind is rare. Even though this character is mostly overlooked by cosplayers, I'm glad there are TB fans who appretiate this cosplay
Any character rarely seen or mentioned in the manga or novels is more than welcome in my TB group. There never enough of anything that most of use have not seen. Again good work I look forward to more in the future from you.
