Drink of Immortality by vickybunnyangel Drink of Immortality by vickybunnyangel
Character: Astharoshe Asran
Series: Trinity Blood
Variant: Special Edition DVD art evening dress
Photographed by Jack Liu

Awarded Best in Class Workmanship and Presentation (Artisan division)

The first photo of my completed Astharoshe costume! This made its debut at Otakuthon 2010 in beautiful Montreal. More photos from my photoshoot with Jack at Justice Hall will be posted as I get them from the photographer.

Upgrades from AN: Evidently I have a jacket and hat now. Choosing to go with a jacket rather than making the dress all one piece was done on purpose. I can take it on and off with ease when it gets very hot. Almost every inch of this costume is handpainted :3 took many many hours of work

The hat is my most extravagant accessory and I love it! The brim is shaped out of wonderflex to maintain rigidity, and then it was covered in matching white fabric then hand painted. I think the blue banana looking things are ridiculous, but it looks good overall.

The collarpiece is interfaced with buckram to keep it stiff, and so that it can withstand the weight of the dangling beads at the end.

All my gold lines are outlined with 3D gold foil, a technique that's similar to gold leafing except for fabric.

Where did you buy the stuff for the 3d gold leaf in Montreal? Your costume is incredible. Can't wait to go to otakthon next year and see all the amazing costumes.

The gold leaf is purchased from the states from Dharma Trading :)

The paint job is amazing!! Can I ask what kind of fabric you used for the white part of her outfit? It looks slightly stiff and creates a strong, beautiful layer over the blue part of the dress.
