The costume was designed by Emmy-nominated designer Wendy Partridge, who also worked with del Toro on Hellboy. It differs from the one designed by Sanja Milkovic Hays for the first Blade film, featuring more ornate buckles and a different shaped vest.
The costume consists of five garments: a long black coat, a padded vest, an undervest, a pair of trousers and a pair of boots. The coat is leather and features a shiny red lining. The black padded vest features two large metal buckles, which are intentionally tarnished and decorated with red resin pieces. The buckles latch together with magnets and each have a small pin to secure them more firmly. There are also four small pouches alongside the buckles, two of which are secured with Velcro, while the other two are secured with metal poppers. On the back is a metal clip to secure Blade's sword, which also fits through a hole in the back of the coat.
The undervest is a black, cotton Calvin Klein vest, marked size L. The trousers are black and made of a synthetic waterproof leather. They feature the same magnetic buckle as the padded vest, and have two back pockets and a fleece lining. The boots are a US size 11 1/2 and are made of leather with a thick rubber sole.
The costume has some wear from production use. There is dried stage blood on the right shoulder and lapel of the coat. The trousers have scuffs and markings, with some sticky residue on parts of the waistband. The padded vest has scuffing and paint transfer on the back, while the leather is cracked in some places. The right boot has an intentional hole drilled in the sole so the whole costume can be fitted onto a mannequin.
