It all started with Thomas Harris’ novel Silence of the Lambs, a title most are familiar with by the movie adaptation that starred Jodi Foster and Anthony Hopkins. Since, the evil Hannibal Lector has been quite the iconic character. Known for his ways of cannibalism and being all around creepy, Hannibal has sent chills down the spines of fans for years. That’s why it’s no surprise that there is now a television series adaptation of Hannibal’s story, bringing the killer to the modern day. Not once has Hannibal switched genders, as a man has always portrayed him – whether that is Anthony Hopkins or Mads Mikkelson.
However, cosplayers have a bit more creative freedom with gender adaptations and can often gender swap as they please. Cosplayer TheoryNPractice has taken advantage of this truth and shown fans a Hannibal they may have never expected. While the killer has been turned female, TheoryNPractice’s take on Hannibal is still menacing and downright creepy. With blood dripping down Hannibal’s lipstick tainted lips, it’s obvious that no one would want to cross paths with this woman.
