Comments from the cosplayer:

In these photos I cosplay Ciel Phantomhive, Earl Phantomhive. These are taken in my room using backdrops I’ve borrowed from bedsheets. I’ve been cosplaying for a year and I’ve been cosplaying Ciel for a few months now. Cosplay done by me.

Hel-lo. :3 RetardedJackSparrow here, and I am widely known via the interwebs as Ciel Phantomhive, Earl Phantomhive. I love this character and are madly in love with Kuroshitsuji. Cosplay is a beloved hobby of mine and Ciel is by far one of my most favourite characters to cosplay. I am on DeviantArt where I started as a fan fic writer for Kuroshitsuji then divulged into the world of cosplay, transforming into Ciel Phantomhive. Through my wrting I was able to get in touch with the character, perfecting and still working on the visual creation of my cosplay, striving to attain Ciel as he would appear as if he were real. I am a YouTuber who acts as Ciel through a multitude of videos and short comedies as a tribute and praise to Kuroshitsuji. Many think of me as Ciel Phantomhive, but I assure you, I am nothing more than a cosplayer still working on a beloved craft.
