[I should clarify that this is a “For-Fun” picture based on the flower crowns & Will’s love for puppies. Better pictures are in the link above.]
Cosplay Making Notes:
Unfortunately I don’t have a detailed writeup for this cosplay because I made it… In less than a week.
Basically the skull is made from Worbla. Worbla is great cause I was able to curve parts in. Unfortunately it is expensive (but I had plenty of left overs so I didnt spend money on this cosplay). The horns are made from expanding foam that was carved, then covered in Worbla.
The Straight Jacket was made like an oversized zip-up jacket with EXTRA long sleeves - then switched around to wear.
The background was made from two pieces of white fabric that had quilt batting in between, to give it the proper asylum look.
The picture was taken in my living room.
Paints are just acrylic paints. I mixed my own red paint with red + yellow + brown.
Will Graham (Hannibal) Cosplay - Personal Thoughts:
Woooh. First Tumblr Post. I am fully aware that people will now start to unfollow me cause they didn’t expect this type of tumblr blog. I say to them, why were you following a empty blog? No seriously, where did these followers come from?
Anyway I did this cosplay because my friends were making coscards. I wanted to make a new cosplay and I only had a couple weeks to do it. I was going to do something with makeup - until this idea hit me.
Basically its based on the Hannibal Season 2’s promo posters & the ravenstag. While I am fully aware the ravenstag is black & has feathers - I wanted to keep the white theme that the promo poster has and … I could not incorporate feathers without looking stupid.
And since this is a cosplay of Will Graham, I feel that there is a nicer symmetry to have Will Graham with a white skull (and blood all over it) and Hannibal has a black theme. Like Ying & Yang. (Also the white paint is called “China White” which reminded me of the chinese teacups - and one of the running theme was Will Graham was compared to a fragile teacup.)
I am pretty proud of the pictures. I had an image in my head and thanks to my friends, I was able to bring it to life. Its definitely not what I usually do but it was fun.
I plan to do another abstract Hannibal cosplay. Not sure when, and don’t hold your breath for it, but someday you will see another Hannibal cosplay from me.
