Prince Vlad - Dracula by FireLilyCosplay Prince Vlad - Dracula by FireLilyCosplay
Photographer: Leonard Jinto
Designer: Eiko Ishioka
Model: David Dunn

This costume was made for Costume Con 27's Historical Masquerade and is a recreation of Prince Vlad's suit from Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 film "Dracula."
I nearly had a meltdown making these two costumes (I also made Mina), but it was so worth it. They are incredible and I'm so glad I decided to make them!! Plus, I think these are the first recreations of Mina's and Vlad's town outfits that I've seen.

The suit is a Prince Albert frock coat made of wool and lined with silk and silk satin. The pants are unlined wool and include silk satin and leather suspenders. The shirt is cotton sateen dyed grey, with a pin-tuck shield front and detachable wing-tip collar and cuffs. The vest is silk satin, and the ascot is silk. The stovepipe top hat is made of felt, lined in silk satin, and set with a satin bow. Pince nez are authentic and stained blue with glass stain (completely removable).

That is awesome, is this from Bram Stoker's novel or the new tv series that is out?

It's from the Francis Ford Coppola 1992 movie Dracula.

the fact that you took the time to recreate this look so flawlessly is just astounding. And the results are enough to make me giggle with glee :D Plus, your Prince is quite handsome, and the period clothes fit him rather well :)

You answered several years after the original comment. Your brownie points are now old and stale.
