Gabriel Belmont (Dracula) Cosplay by GabbyLeithsceal Gabriel Belmont (Dracula) Cosplay by GabbyLeithsceal
I am a 5'3" female but in this costume I was nearly 6 feet tall - this was a HUGE build!!!

Gabriel Belmont (Dracula) from Castlevania's Lords of Shadow timeline. 

This is a blending of his two versions, Dracula at his height of power and his withered awakening after centuries of sleep. 
I also made his makeup darker and his hair a bit longer w/a blended color, than in the game as I wanted him to be creepy.

The bottom pic is me as normal as I can be (to scale) with me in the costume (friend stood in for pose)

Hair - Lace wig, human hair
Eyes - Hand painted contacts  
Face, neck, arms, hands - Foam latex
Chest - Latex and Polyfoam <--- the sculpt took sooo much clay to get rid of my curves LOL it was rediculous
Teeth - custom dental acrylics 
Belt - hand embossed latex felt, silver leaf, embroidered fabric with leather dye and airbrushed
Belt decoration - Resin cast with silver leaf, fabric covered wonderflex with embossed trim
Rings - silver leafed tooling leather
Face on arm wraps - resin cast, silver leafed
Fabrics -dyed, hand painted damasks, air brushed
Jacket - vinyl, latex felt, eva foam, hand embossed details and trim, resin cast buttons
Makeup - Pax, powders and alcohol activated
Height: Platform lifts
Time: 5 weeks 

Other than the total sense of being lost as yourself, to look in a mirror and not see any part of you looking back - The coolest part of this was a friend looked right at me then turned away and asked another friend if I was coming! Woot!!!

**Thinking of making the jacket again except to fit my normal height and do it in leather just to wear it around ;)


EDIT---> More photos and a timelapse video of applying "him" is now up here: GabLei.com

I just learned that it's possible to puchase the young vampire Gabriel outfit for $900, and it's by far the most expensive one on that particular website. And that one doesn't even have the body and mask going for it, so I'd estimate your cration to be worth at least $1500, including the high uality materials like the human hair wig.

Amazing! The outfit looks absolutely perfect. Then going so far as to make his body and face, crazy! I've seen people use makeup to make muscles and stuff, but this way you can put it on anytime, and present it to judges and win!
