So I go to most of the conventions here in New Jersey and Philadelphia, and this costume was for Philadelphia Wizard World Comic Con 2010. I've been following Soul Calibur since the first game, and I was at GameStop the day IV came out to get my reserved copy . Talim was my original favorite character, but when III came out Tira beat her out by a long shot!
ANYWAY!! I made this entire costume from scratch. It took me about two weeks, with many hot glue burns, needle pricks, and glue stains on my clothes later.. came this costume! Ever bit of it was drafted, cut, sewn, glued and sculpted by myself. WHO EVER KNEW THAT YOU CAN NOT GET LITTLE SKULLS WHEN IT'S NOT HALLOWEEN!!! (After many store trips later.. I ended up sculpting them myself.) There are a few things I would have liked to have had more time doing, but I'll fix those at a later time. The shoes and the ring blade are my favorite pieces. AND DAMN THAT RING BLADE WAS A HASSLE! EVERYONE kept running into it! BLAH!!! The glove armor was so finicky, I really want to find a better way to make them, it was definitely a one time use for those, but it worked for what I needed it to!
I have some rather large tattoos which were pretty impossible to hide, but hey I love my art!
That day I got to enter the costume contest... AND I WON FIRST PLACE!!! WOO HOOOO!!!! It was an amazing end to all of the work I put into my costume!
SO NOW ON TO THE LOADS OF PICTURES!
This is one of my best friends, He was just as excited to see this new costume!
This is my friend's daughter, They were there with me that day and she would run into every picture that someone would take, it was rather hilarious!!!
(That guy creeping to the left is HILARIOUS! So glad I found that shot!)
( I am obsessed with Star Wars )
Me on stage for the costume contest!
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures!
