Rudolph from Elisabeth (Takarazuka)

Elisabeth is another Takarazuka show that we (HCC) love, so of course we had to do costumes from it. Our costumes are a mix from the Moon Troupe and Cosmos Troupe versions.

Rudolph is Elisabeth’s tragic, doomed son who shoots himself in the head after going slightly nuts, helped along by der Tod (death). The very first Elisabeth production I saw was Cosmos’ and to date, Comu is my favorite Rudolph so I chose her costume to do.
