Black Butler Cosplay Contest – #9 Maki Kazagami

Cosplayer Bio:

Name: Maki Kazagami/female/Philippines

Social Networks: deviantart.com

Character: Grell Sutcliff

Comments from the cosplayer:

Grell Sutcliff was the only Kuroshitsuji character I cosplayed so far. Aside that the bisexual is in fact my fave character, I just love red as much as he(oops, i mean she) do. Red is my fave color. And I just thought it’d be cool to be a Grim Reaper once in my cosplay life. & Grell is fabulous.

We had a Kuroshitsuji II cosplay photoshoot last summer. Here’s a link to the complete set.

Black Butler Cosplay Contest – #8 Rai

Cosplayer Bio:

Name: Rai/Female/Australian

Social Networks: deviantart.com, youtube.com

Comments from the cosplayer:

Hi, the name’s Rai and I am your typical high school student who lacks funds for cosplay yet still does it. I have been cosplaying for about two and a half years now and make all of my costumes. I usually don’t enter contests but I have received a lot of positive feedback on these particular photos and thought, “Hey why not?”. Kuroshitsuji is one of a few favourite series in my list and I hope I have been able to represent the characters well. Thank you for taking your time to view my work! <3

Just A Puppet & Forever Chained (Photo Credits: doctorpi & Li Li U – Respectively)

My Drocell Cainz cosplay first made its debut at Armageddon Melbourne 2011, with a small Kuroshitsuji group (Sadly, only four members including myself). It was also featured as a final piece as a part of my folio for Studio Arts and is one of the costumes that I really enjoyed making as well as cosplaying. I think that this has definitely got to be the most colourful cosplay I own, as for the most part I choose characters with darker themed clothes and I can definitely say this is one of the more challenging cosplays that I’ve done so far. The tailcoat, tophat and music box are all handmade, with the music box even being able to play music…but only when I have my iPod dock inside it xP
Thank you for voting and good luck to all the contestants! <3
Little Robin & Unamused (Photo Credits: Natasha & VanillaShrimp – Respectively):
My proudest and most accomplished costume up until now has to be my Robin Ciel ballgown. Every aspect of this costume was handmade by myself (including the hoopskirt I am wearing underneath) but with the exception of the gloves which were bought. The total amount of ruffles on this dress adds up to about…60 metres + worth of fabric, which were all hand ruffled and hemmed. That was the most tedious part of this costume…ALL OF THE RUFFLES! It was my first time attempting a project as large scaled as this one, but I am more than happy with the final results. Instead of the standard pink and white version of the dress, I chose to make the maroon and black version as I found this version a lot more appealing to my tastes. Lastly, I really hope that I have been able to pull of Robin Ciel well, because I am not used to cosplaying feminine characters and rarely do so. Also seeing as we are allowed to have video inputs, you can see my dress in action here (because I don’t have many good photos of it!) —>

Thank you for voting and good luck to all the contestants! <3

Black Butler Cosplay Contest – #7 IHeartExploding

Cosplayer Bio:

Name: IHeartExploding/Female/United States

Social Networks: Deviant Art Facebook cosplay page

Character: Madam Red

Comments from the cosplayer:

First Please excuse bad English.I am IHeartExploding,I love cosplay and believe that any and everyone should cosplay to their hearts desire because it is a hobby meant for fun.I enjoy it wholeheartedly and support all cosplayers of all shapes sizes ethnics and appearances of ant kind.I also encourage and help others out especially new cosplayers because they need compliments not hurt as some people will give others.I enjoy comic books,novels,video games,quantum physics,quantum mechanics,movies,Role playing,Acting,Arts and crafts and many more things.I was cosplaying as Madam Red in this set of photographs,These pictures were taken by my husband Adam L Photography in our back yard in January 2012.I hope that is all you guys needed :)

I really enjoyed this manga,Not a fan of the animated version,I prefer close to the authors canon.I also cosplay as Beast and Undertaker,Madame is my favorite however,It is why i chose to submit these photos.I love the character,Shes said to be so incredibly beautiful,But the character herself is broken and torn in ways that many of us would break just as glass as madam red did and in the end is killed by the second “man” she had come to love.I like that she shows that beauty is only skin deep,That looks are a shell and that in that beautiful shell can be a broken shattered mess on a downward spiral.Proving in the end to look within yourself.Madam Red was once beautiful on the inside as well as out,But by the end she was only beautiful outside and inside losing everything but one thing that ended up betraying her in the end,had made her cold,hardened,bitter,and broken into so many fragments like a porcelin doll knocked off a shelf.
This is why I love this character,and cosplay her.
