I only know the name of of where these cool cosplay comes from. Does anyone know the story of Trinity Blood or where I can find good references for this genre of cosplay?

What would even be better is if someone can tell me where I can read synopsis of this anime/manga?

ooh this is perfect thank you very much for the great introduction to the series. Spring of 2005 so it is pretty new then.

the costumes of them are not super hard, the accessories that kill you.
I have been done with Esther's full sisterhood dress, but only 10% with her decorations. I don't even want to mention Seth Nightlord. I would hit Radu before her. vol. 3 of the manga has been released if you need pics. IF not, Sneaker has the latest stuff and Asuka has month release.

Are the mangas really that old? They're just being released. If you want an example of the manga art, I can scan some of mine at a later date.

Re: Abel Nightroad's wings - in the manga they're large, black, and feathery. Although I forgot how many there are at the moment. A least 2.
Location - Italy is very important (due to the Vatican and Rome), but the beginning of the novel starts with a map with locations, and it shows all of "Europe", including parts of Russia.
German - Rozen Kreuz, I believe, is the correct spelling.

I am planning on doing a Seth Nightlord, and trying to get all the details down is making my head spin. One of the main problems is I only have a small amount of illustrations - I have more cosplay pictures as reference so I am trying to match which cosplayer I think got a costume the most accurate then look at various angles of their work since have a drawing shortage of angles.

which one are you refering to???
i know there are three that i have illustrations for


-her in the green/white on cover of novel
-her in battle without headress, with two swords (or something similar to those huge things)
-her in her court dress (more elegant, more of an in-court gown)

Not the black & white one - the hat reminds me of a graduation hat and makes me giggle

Will attach image of cosplay ones I would like to find more references for. I really only have a few reference images for the cover one(left most outfit). If I could get enough reference to feel confident had most details, I probably would try making a couple of these as I like Vradica's style.

Same costume as the far left, just the back of her outfit. I took the picture b/c I wanted the details. ^^

thanks eleryth for the link and wow everyone is so ambitious. I was just impressed by some of the pictues I saw in the members gallery and I have to agree that the accessories will be the cost maker for the costumes.

#10 Hikaruchan on 13 years ago

Thanks so much for posting those, rahu-6.jpg at [url]http://babu.jp/~cross/[/url] was exactly the type of reference I am hunting for. I had a slightly blurry color pic but the black & white drawing there really helps. The cover Vradica keeps looking more likely, as that is all the drawn reference I have and the majority of cosplaying images it seems.

#11 Kat Murz on 13 years ago

Thanks for the great seth pics. I'm also half way through making a Seth Nightlord costume (the cover one) only I'm doing inverted colors since white and green are not only bad colors on me but my school uniform colors. Always good to see more trinity blood cosplay! WHOT!!

#12 evilchii on 13 years ago

I think this is one of the best threads for Trinity Blood we've had. It would be great if we kept this one up and alive so all us fans can discuss this series and any future costumes without a new thread popping up and all of us having to start over again.

for anyone who doesn't have the novels, or does but cannot ready japanese (like myself) this person was kind enough to translate and compress the first novel story, keeping all the original illustrations. enjoy!

the trinity blood community forum is a great place for images and information. i believe the link to that board was provided in Apsara's post (post #2 in this thread). that's where i found all my wonderful images. i also have a bunch if you wanna pm about a certain character, i can see if i have anything.


I, myself am planning to cosplay as Deitrich *a huge maybe* at Otakon. I already have so much planned that I'll probably end up wearing it at Anime USA and by then have an Esther with me XD.
