I've seen many cosplayers at here and I love them since I considered them as professionals, you guys are no exception. :nod:
The quality of this captured picture is marvelous, no doubt. The outfit looks terrific too. I assume you made it by yourself (or with some people) ? Nevertheless, I love this picture wholeheartedly. :aww:
In fact I love the characters themselves. I've played Ougon Musou Kyoku before after watched the anime for some times.

You guys really went all out, that's amazing! I love it when real attention to detail is obvious, as you can see the level of preperation and thus the enjoyment in preparing for the event beforehand; there are few things as pleasent and rewarding as genuine enthusiasm. Good job to all three of you!

You're welcome. I do have a question now I come to think more about it - I am guessing that you had this meetup planned in advance, did you work on your outfits together or individually? If individually, how did you know they would match so well.

I mean, from what I can see that both Cornelia (yourself) and Gertrude appear to be wearing identical shoes (forgive me if I'm wrong on that), the crossed-key symbols appear to have exactly the same dimensions featured on each outfit as well. I can't be sure, as it could just be a mix between my eyes, this particular photo's angle, or just me, but the width of some of the white lacing may differ slightly (that's my BEST shot at eying over for any difference!). Don't trouble yourself if the answer is complicated, I just thought I'd turn my inquisitive/nit-picking dial up to 11! :D

At the time we were working on these, we all lived in different states, but the three of us coordinated and all got the same fabrics. Our Gertrude and I bought the same shoes and she made the tie and sleeve emblems so they would match while our Dlanor resin-cast all the keys. And you're right, we did forget to decide on what to use for the garter ribbons beforehand so they ended up different.

Oh yay, my eyesight isn't failing that hard today then! Thanks for being so informative; it must be awesome to get that kind of cooperation going between the three of you, how long did these take to prepare? Also, are they intended for use on only a single occasion, or have they been worn since then?

Looking so good, I'd be tempted to wear them again (apart from it not suiting me, being male and all). Or do you sell/exchange them with other people after that one day? I am supposing that a big part of your personal enjoyment from it is as a project, in the development up to the big day.

Ohh, and before I forget to ask (like I did last time), how much time did it all take from the original idea? I'd also be fascinated to know how much it cost roughly. Thanks for putting up with all my questions! :)

On average, between two weeks and a month since they are not prop-intensive costumes aside from Dlanor's wig. We've worn them twice so far, but I'm not sure if we will again. I can't say for sure though! A lot of my friends sell their costumes after wearing them a few times, but I haven't started doing that.

We decided to do this group around this time last year and started collecting materials and brainstorming, but didn't start construction until closer to the convention. It's been a few years since I kept any detailed costume budgets, but I'd estimate in the neighborhood of $100 for the total cost?

Ludarf Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
In my opinion, that's $100 well spent! It does look gorgous in addition to its accuracy; did you get lots of people asking you to pose for photos? And dre I ask if you encountered any other Umineko cosplayers, unplanned or otherwise?

Who knows, with Umineko's anime adaption getting dubbed, the series might see a surge in popularity in the English-speaking world, such group cosplays may yet be in demand in the foreseeable future!

Well, thank you! We did get stopped for a lot of photos, even by people not familiar with Umineko! We ran into a few other Umineko cosplayers and got a few pictures with an Erika. :) I'll definitely keep the costume around for possible future use!

I wanted to so badly this year, and when I saw all those Umineko cosplayers, I cried.

Do you have any idea if you will be back as Dalnor next year?

Haha I'm not the Dlanor. XD I'm the one on the left side with the short brown wig. But no, as far as I know we probably won't be wearing these again there unless friends ask us to.
