Der Tod's coat - Takarazuka by giusynuno Der Tod's coat - Takarazuka by giusynuno
And the "Elisabeth" group costumes are over (for now xD)!! XD
This is Der Tod's coat in the "Rondo of Love and Death" (愛と死の輪舞 in Japanese) scene from Takarazuka's 2007 version of "Elisabeth" by the Snow Troupe :snow:
I made the coat and the base design for the crystals, and my friend Vane (whom the costume is for :D) attached all the HUNDREDS of crystals that are on XXD
With hundreds I mean hundreds. This is no joke XD I just didn't have the time to help her but she did a great job by herself :star:
The coat is made of blueish-black cotton with linen bias borders, the bast for the crystals is made with silver thread cotton and the crystals are a mix of round, long and esagonal designs in black, silver, clear and multicolour :D
The shirt underneath is a bought one that Vane used for the actual cosplay, and the waist band is made of the same silver thread cotton as the base of the crystals :)

Original design: Arimura (Takarazuka 2007)
Original coat's photo: www.theaterguide.co.jp/theater…
Dress making: me xD
Decorations: Vane :star:
Photo&edit: me XD

OMG that is a lot of crystals :D Your friend is very patient (and makes a great Der Tod) :D :XD:

Its very nice of you to make this for a friend

Thanks for specifying which troup :D :XD: I can't seem to get them straight and I only saw two productions in total (who was the actress in Snow Troup? I'll know if I saw it if I know her name :P)

Thank you so much!!! Vane is a huge details fan and really spends a lot of time in making the details :D she recently finished Barinkai from Gipsy Baron and as soon as the weather gets better we'll take pictures of that one, too, is a massive crystal dress XD

Tod in Snow Troupe was Mizu Natsuki :D (my fav Takarasienne, btw xD) other Tods were:
- Ichiro Maki (Snow, 1996)
- Asaji Saki (Star, 1996-97)
- Shizuki Asato (Cosmos, 1998)
- Haruno Sumire (Flower, 2002)
- Ayaki Nao (Moon, 2005)
- Sena Jun (Moon, 2009)

They were all amazing but Mizu beats them all in my opinion XXXDD

I know Ichiro Maki - she's one of my mom's fav Elisabeth cast memebers, although the Japanese Tod wigs scare her a bit :P I also know Sena Jun (mostly because I keep copying her Tod hairstyle :P) and Asaji Saki (another DA friend insisted that I see her version :D)

Do you have a link to anything with Mizu?

It was a pain to make and I have to admit that I'm really sad that me and my friend who wore this are so different in size because I'd have wanted to wear it too XXXXDDDD

It's a bit complicated to say because this took some 200+ hours to make (expecially for the decorations, that's it...), I don't think I could ask you less than 350€ or something like that^^;
But the biggest problem is that I only work with close by clients because I'm a bit of a size freak and I can't really work with standard sizes^^;

Ah, it's a Mizu!Tod costume! I adore that coat. It looks amazing. I can only imagine how long it took her to attach all those crystals...the mind boggles.

Are there any pictures of your friend wearing the cosplay anywhere?

Waaaaaaaaah I'm glad you like it :heart::heart: It took her almost...one month? or so of work, she sent me desperate messages while making it xD but well, this came after the Scarlet Pimpernel coat that took almost 4 months so she was prepared xD

I have a couple of pictures of us together but they're not that good and the dress wasn't finished yet, I think the one that sort of shows it better would be this one [link] but we really have to wear the costumes again and take better photos soon :D
