Merry Murderess. by cupcake-rufflebutt Merry Murderess. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Character: "Flashback" Delphine from Last Exile
Seamstress/Model: Tess [cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography/Editing: Ollie [orobouros.net]
Location: Anime Expo 2006

Construction Notes:
This is a version of Delphine which is only seen very briefly [5-10 seconds, tops] over the course of several flashbacks. Thank goodness for Range Murata's artbooks, or I'd never have figured out how this all goes together! Still, this cosplay was my very first super difficult one: Prior to this I had never drafted a pattern, made bootcovers, or done any sort of crazy headgear. I'm proud of what I got out of the design, given I was still such a newbie to cosplay at the time, but I never got around to finishing it with all of the details. One day I'd like to completely remake this!

Special Request:
Please no critiques/criticism; I'd like to keep this gallery happy! :3

I make all of the costumes in my gallery. If I didn't, I can't imagine uploading them to DeviantART, which is specifically for artists.

I must say you have an amazing skill with these costumes you make!
How did you get the head piece to stay up like that and what materials did you use for it?
:thumbsup::D

The headpiece is actually just poster board covered in fabric, fashioned onto a pre-existing headband. It's not very heavy at all. ^__^ Thanks for the comment!

Another rare character! The box sets sell for over one hundred dollars and I heard rumors about Last Exile being shown on Cartoon Network-but no cosplayers, no fanfare-just Naruto, Bebop, Bleach, etc. I don't mind them it's just they seem to be so common.

Last Exile is such a beautiful and innovative anime. The characters all had such strong personalities and no stone was left unturned-everyone you met came back and didn't just vanish into some void of writer forgetfulness.

Your gallery has me so awestruck! Very nice job on the costume, hair and makeup-you captured Delphina well!

Thank you! I very much doubt the Cartoon Network rumors are true, though, as Last Exile was already aired in the US, way back when TechTV still played anime. So I'm pretty sure I can put that fear to rest, as Cartoon Network doesn't like re-airing things. ^__^ Thanks again for the comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed my costume!

YAHHHHHH LAST EXILE COSPLAYS = AMAZINGNESS!!!
I… I like… go all spaztastic when people cosplay as Last Exile characters.
Makes Dapany Chany happy! (yes I just used 3rd person)

If I was there I would have taken a picture of you… then I’d ask if I could take a picture with you.

Even though I hated her for brainwashing Dio… I… I still think how she at least looked was amazing!

I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed it so much! Last Exile cosplay is few and far between [fortunately I have a small group of friends who avidly cosplay from it], so I get exactly like you when I see it: O______O

Pretty ^^ I love the make-up

Was the hat? heavy to wear?

:iconcupcake-rufflebutt:
cupcake-rufflebutt Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2008  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks! The makeup is my favourite part of the costume. ^__^ The hat is just thin cardboard taped together, placed on a headband, and covered in fabric, so it is not heavy at all. The wig was actually heavier than the hat, ironically, since the ponytails are quite long in the back. XD

Yes, Range's style is truly amazing!
Oooh, really? Oh, I'd love to see how you make Sophia's dress! It wold look so pretty ^-^

Even if you never got to finish this, it's amazing that you made it with barely any knowledge... I don't even think I can do that with my two years of sewing. XD;

Thanks! I have a friend who did an absolutely beautiful version of Sophia's coronation gown, so I've been pretty daunted the past few years, but I'm really itching to make that huge green cloak. XD I had actually been sewing for just around a year when I made this costume, but it was my first attempt at something so form-fitting. ^___^

Ohhh, yeah, I don't do form-fitting. ^_^; It's a bit difficult to get what you want.
