The gothic mainstay of gaming is back with the Netflix anime counterpart, and we’re here to celebrate the most haunting Alucard cosplay.

There is a distinct genre of character that transcends gender, sexuality, and the very definitions of our lives that humans hold onto with religious fervor… and Vampires tend to flirt with that line pretty constantly. From books to movies, video games, and beyond, vampires hit us in all the tender, evocative bits. When Tom Cruise strutted onto the screen as Lestat in Interview With A Vampire, audiences around the world sat up and took notice. The same is true of today’s Alucard cosplay.

The trend continues into the world of video games, with characters like Dracula and Alucard being resurrected again and again to woo audiences. The Castlevania series has weathered the test of time through a myriad of consoles and game iterations – we come back again and again to appreciate this mystical, elusive world. This week, we’re celebrating the newest season of the Castlevania Anime by swooning over the most GORGEOUS cross-play to sweep in through the night and steal our hearts—Dracula’s Dhampir son, Alucard from Symphony of the Night.
