13th October 2009: Finshed? Well, with FuyuCon only 1 week and a bit away I've decided to declare this comtume finished and ready to wear! I've managed to sculpt my scarecrow fangs, but because I've had so much dental work already they've had t ogo on my second inscisors, rather than my canines. I look cute though, apparently!
As for the glove, I'm buying that today. If I feel brave, I might fabric paint some eyes onto it (since gloves come in pairs I can practise first!) but if not, I don't mind having it plain.
Unfortunately due to weapons regulations I won't have a harkonnen, but if we can get tubing (possibly from our rubbish hoover) I may end up with The Orphan, at least!
24th July 2009: More Photos!! Well, Since I had nothing to do before work the other day, we decided to explore some of the nicer looking areas of Hull and do a mini photoshoot for my Seras, and try the wig out proper, too, now I have a wig cap!
Apart from the few expected 'uughhs' (which loosely translates as Arrgh you're betting your legs and shape out but your not a size 4 so you're revolting) things didn't go too badly. Some old ladies smiled at me, too! Anyway!
I'm very happy with my wiglet! So much so that I was very tempted to wear it to work (but I didn't!). I still need gloves/fangs/cannon, but for now just please enjoy my new photos! ~^^~
5th June 2009: Accessories Remain So, my wig arrived the other day!! Eeek, it's now happily sat on a wig head we found by chance when we moved, but anyway, this means that the main costume body is done, and only the accessories remain-
~Harkonnen. I still need to learn to spell that! But anyway, Ryuk's sorta doing this for me, and we reckon at the moment the most plausible items are poster tubes or possibly, depending on what Homebase (or somewhere like that...) has to offer, guttering/plastic piping
~Scarecrow fangs. Probably the part of the costume im most looking forward to, need to order 2 packs off eBay, one for me, one for Ryuk!
~Glove. Easy peasy- mod an opera costume glove off ebay!!
~Eyes. For the eyes I think I'm steering away from contacts, because it takes me forever to put them in and I blink too much! I tried experimenting with red makeup around the eyes, which you can sorta see in my wig photos, but I'll practise a little more before i decide on anythnig final.
29th May 2009: Only one thing left... Okay so the costume is HERE! I decided to wear my Doc's for the shoes, and the glove should be easy enough to do... im justr waiting on the wig!!! Eeeeek! I'm rather excited ^^,
15th May 2009: IT CAME!! And they're SUCH high quality :) I'm really amazed at it :D
Very well fitted and comfy, too. Downside is my camera batteries are completely out so no photos :(
1st May 2009: Yaaaay! I finally ordered me and RyukRedApples' Seras and Alucard costumes :) They should take maybe 2 weeks to get here, and by that point I should have monies for a wig and the scarecrow fangs!
Really excited about this, we should be making both of Sears' guns (The Harkkonen and the other Rifle she has!) Well, I say WE... Ryukredapples should be making them! I also have a little ammunition case for my sandwiches which is on Ryuk's profile already (under props) :D
I think im a little worried about moulding the fangs wrong, BUT we'll tackle that when it comes down to it :D
For an image of the costumes in question heres some linkage:
http://store01.prostores.com/fanplusfriend/images/cos/hellsing/c00018_01.jpg is Alucard
http://www.fan-store.net/catalog/C00041R_01.jpg And Theres my Seras!!!
16th April 2009: Soon! I get paid next week, so I'm gonna go ahead and order this next Friday :3
Since it's no extra cost, I'm most likely gonna getit custom sized, too, which is awsome :3

*points to my several Alucard costumes*
Let me know when you're doing this! I think you'll make a fantastic Seras!
Also, don't bother with the series. Watch Hellsing Ultimate as it's got big-budget movie-quality animation, the same VAs and actually matches the manga. There were only two volumes out when they did the series so they made up 80% of the series and it didn't focus on the right characters.
Captain_Marvelous - 14th January 2009
yeah ^.^ my seras is here :) cant wait to do the group :) gonna be awesome ^.^ just gotta get my outfit done O_o
ps: points to sjbonnar's comment Told you ^.^ arent I always right especially with anime.
Anonymous - 15th January 2009
This'l be a sweet costume for youuuu. ^_^
I don't know which version you're doing but both are awesome.
Luke is trying to make me do Schrödinger for the group. O_O
Also I'd avoid the series unless you really need your fill, the animation quality makes you rider rage. :O

i cant wait for this, the group is gonna be awesome!
nanahara - 10th February 2009
this will be great to see, I think the red version is a good choice. Hellsing Ultimate is for sure better than original anime that came out.
Captain_Marvelous - 10th February 2009
Honestly babes if you wanna wear the blue one do that one ^.^ but i was just saying that I thought you would look hot in the red one ^.^
Captain_Marvelous - 30th May 2009
Yaaay your finnaly on and perhaps im bias here but I think you are the best seras on here, and your breasts unlike most of em are 100% :) cant wait for fuyucon :)
KamikazePenguin - 24th July 2009
You make a fantastic Seras, wig is spot on. :D
Ranma1-2 - 24th July 2009
Yep enjoying your new photos.
Like I said I love how you guys sought out these locations for your shoot. What time of day was it cos it looks pretty much deserted - like your own private film set. :)
PinkCharlieBear - 27th October 2009
You're one of my fav Seras! You looked perfect as her 8D
Day_the_Dreamer - 3rd November 2009
