After more than a month here comes the first picture of my Ion Fortuna
costume from the amazing series Trinity Blood
I watched Trinity Blood
for the first time back in 2005 and fell in love with Ion
immediately. Unfortunately I didn't know much about creating patterns, sewing, etc. back then.
Regarding the fact that the Trinity Blood
design is well known for its extremely detailed outfits it was the right decision not to make the costume when I lacked experience and knowledge. It would have been a huge waste of time and money.
I'm glad I finally succeeded to make this costume though! Ion
is still one of my favourite anime characters.
Since he's is a nobleman - the Count of Memphis - I wanted to use the most expensive-looking materials for his outfit as possible.
It's a pity you cannot see the beautiful Oriental weaving pattern of the white fabric in this picture. I also made the complete set of jewellery myself this time. Formalicy: Aigue-Marine
as Ion Fortuna
series: Trinity Blood
