Black Butler Cosplay Contest – #40 Tyne Rowan

Cosplayer Bio:

Name: Tyne Rowan (Tana)/Male/English

Character: Undertaker

Comments from the cosplayer:

Hi there, I’m Tyne. I cosplay a lot and have a few Kuroshitsuji cosplays lined up. However my first and favourite cosplay will always be Undertaker. This is my second outfir off him, a more accurate outfit at that. These photos were taken at the MCM Expo October 2011. I made my props myself, and handpainted the sigels onto them. I love the undertaker so much, especially after the Titanic arc for which this costume is based off.

Photo #1

Elizabeth Middleford

Ciel in Wonderland OVA

Made for Katsucon 2011 pic taken in backyard

Lizzy is my absolute favorite character out of the entire series. I love this cosplay that my mom made for me the only downside is that I get overheats fast!!!  The fabric that we used to make this dress is very heavy so it has a built in petti coat but, that wasn’t enough.  So I have an additional petti coat skirt under everything.  With the gloves, stockings, shorts, and petti coats this dress is perfect for the winter not so good for the summer.

Photo#2

Alois

Ciel in Wonderland OVA

Made for kastucon 2012

Alois is a character I really could care less about but I wanted to cosplay another outfit of Wonderland. I always saw pictures of Ciel in wonderland but not of Alois (and I also found a great deal on pink fabric). I quickly made the outfit and told my sister to let’s do a photo shoot. Overall I was pleased with the outcome! I just need to make some few corrections to the outfit for the next appearance.

Kuroshitsuji allows me to better my skill. I love the art concept with all the Victorian outfits. I’m currently working on two more lizzy outfits that have a lot of ruffles and draping and I have 6 additional outfits planned from the series. Every time I try to go to a different manga Kuroshitsuji comes out with a new chapter with brand new outfits and filling up my cosplay plans for 2012/2013.

Black Butler Cosplay Contest – #38 Kim van den Dungen

Cosplayer Bio:

Name: Kim van den Dungen/Netherlands

Social Networks: Facebook and deviantART

Comments from the cosplayer:

The reason why I want to participate in this contest is simply because I love to cosplay the characters Ciel Phantomhive and Alois Trancy. They are my favourites. I started to cosplay Ciel in 2008 and got my first costume of him from my mother for my 12th birthday. Ofcourse I don’t fit in that one anymore. But I do have a lot of other costumes now. I think I only miss a few outfits and then my collection is complete. Next to Ciel Phantomhive, my favourite character, also to cosplay, is Alois Trancy. Almost everyone thinks he’s an psycho bitch, but I think that is rather cute. That might sound weird to some. I mean, ofcourse others think something else of him or maybe agree with me. I love his character and appearance, just like Ciel’s. Another reason could be that my own character just looks a lot like him. Not that I’m a mean girl or anything, but sometimes my friends call me Alois because I do a kind of action that he would do as well. Ciel and Alois also make my favourite pairing. Yes, I do like yaoi (guy x guy.) Please don’t dislike me for that. Currently I am planning to cosplay the Undertaker. I love his character and behaviour. His laugh makes me smile every time I hear it. Also Soma and Agni make me smile with their stupid actions. Soma really looks like a brother to Ciel, which is very cute. First I wanted to cosplay him too, but since I am (extremely) blanc, I think I can’t. So anyway, I wish any other participant all good luck!

The first photo was taken in Utrecht. It’s a while ago by the way. A strange woman walked towards me and asked if she was allowed to take a few pictures. She said she loved my eyes because they have a kind of mysterious glance. Ofcourse I agreed, I mean, I don’t mind if someone wants to take a picture. If that makes them happy, why not? I appreciate her good photographs, they are my best up till now. She really made my eyes come out very well.

The second photo is also taken in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Again it was that strange woman. Here you can see my eyes very well. Actually only my left one, but I guess you get the point.

The third photo has the same story as the previous ones. The strange woman took a shot of my eye by coming very close. I was scared she would stick the lens of her camera into my eye. Luckily, she didn’t. And this is what came out!

The fourth photo is a photograph a friend of mine made and edited for me. I appreciate her work. It was also taken in Utrecht, during the same day.

And the last photo is taken at the place I currently stay. No, I do not live with my parents anymore. Now I live on my own and my aunt comes by from time to time. On my right shoulder you can see my parakeet, Ruka. She’s not only my pet, but also my best friend. When I’m down she always cheers me up. This picture was just a quick shot before I left to a cosplay meeting in Eindhoven. It’s Ciel’s Making Of outfit.

Furthermore I have a kind of funny video someone made during a meeting in Bobbejaanland, a theme park in Belgium. I am cosplaying Sebastian Michaelis there. Yes, ofcourse I like Ciel’s butler. I mean, who doesn’t? This is the link to it:
