The Millennium Earl
DescriptionSo much blood, sweat and tears, so many headaches and long nights. DX I think this turned out okay, but if I had had more time it would certainly be better... I finished it in only a month, maybe even less. I'm going to do a remake for myself later.
I wanted to create this costume because I love the Earl for real... He's such an interesting character, and super hot, too. I also think the story of him and the Fourteenth was very touching. He's one of my favorite characters of all time and very important to me.
This is the Earl's second outfit, that he wears for the first time in chapter 188. I only found one official colored reference for it (which was hard), and even that had a different hat... I had a friend AanZku help me with the colors of it, and we decided for red and white for the balls, like peppermint candies. I love how he's drawn in the latest chapters of the manga, the design is much more detailed and realistic.
A description on how I made it will be shared on my Patreon page.
The costume was worn to Expomanga 2012 in Madrid on Saturday and Sunday, accompanied by my Allen Walker cosplay. I wish we had gotten more photos but the heat was so agonizing!!
I've been planning to remake the costume because I know I could've made it better with more time and money.
