Does anyone know what the original color of Count Orlock's Prussian military style coat is in the 1922 Film Nosferatu?
All of the still shots from the original 1922 film I can find look black.
but several figures from Sideshow Toys and the Monarch Nosferatu model kit box art and paint guide suggestion
say Red/maroon/burgundy with gold frog button connectors. Why?
I am more than a little curious where the red coat idea came from. Any ideas?
What is the earliest precedent of the red coat version associated with this character?
I have seen collectible figures with brown and gray coats too.
the 1979 Werner Herzog Nosferatu the vampyre remake had it in black, the 2000 film Shadow of the Vampire (a movie about the making of the 1922 film)
shows gray with black cuffs. Does anyone know the actual color? halloween or cosplay costumes for Nosferatu come in gray and brown it seems.
I am attempting this costume for Halloween and I am painting my Monarch Nosferatu model as well.
