This week’s Friday Fave is Elenaleetah, Adelhaid (Maria) and Faeryx13 (Anna) from Hide-out Cosplay Team in Russia. Adelhaid and Faeryx13 are going to be WCS Team Russia this year. These cosplayers are some of my absolute favorites! Not only do they choose designs and series that I adore but their craftsmanship is amazing! They frequently employ custom embroidery and custom printed fabrics in their costumes. I can’t wait to see what they do next!
Adelhaid as Esther and Faeryx13 as Abel from Trinity Blood. Photo by ~JustMoolti. Adelhaid intricately machine embroidered her dress. I’m sure it must have taken forever! You can see a more detailed photo of it here.
Adelhaid as Haydee and Faeryx13 as The Count of Monte Cristo from Gankutsuou. Gankutsuou anime uses intricate patterns overlayed on the animation so recreating it as a physical costume presents some challenges. I’m guessing the lining of the cape is custom printed.
