Just both genral and specific dissucssion of kof cosplay. feel free to link to your pics, ask for advice or look for other KoF cosplayers.

my question: has anyone out there done a Zero cosutume? or know some one who has?

I'm thinking of doing one, and I was wondering what people have used for the tan hanging pices attached to his coat. I'm considering using paper clay or cutting styrene, to make the shapes. But both of those would be too heavy to have the same type of movment. Model Magic is light but proably to fragile, and vacuforming proably too difficult.

ideas? or even if you just want to say hi.

I Need K Reference Pics!

I've got a bunch of ash crimson pics from making his costume, a fair amount of ref on K' and Iori from those costumes, and just a little bit on Benimaru, Zero, Kyo and Kula.

So let me know where to send them and I'll pass them along.

I'm confused by your post, advaible for what? There are ton's of charters not listed here (like terry bogard)-unless this is for a no-doubles race specific photo shoot and you allready have most of the cast.

Awwies. There was a big SNK cosplay thread a long time ago. I guess it got shuffled down really far away. ;_;

PM Iori E. :p He cosplayed as Original Zero. Why don't you just make it out of fabric, and put something like wire in it to make it move the way you want it to.

My brother (DigitalCactus) wants to cosplay as Kyo's dad Saiyo Kusanagi from KOF97 or 98(not too sure) and was wondering if there were any good places to find some refrence pics. Gamegen doesn't work anymore-does anyone know if its been shut down?

Michi: Its official... I am going to be Saisyu at a convention sometime this year. I just want to make sure I have the new Beyond the Grave outfit from Gungrave2:OverDose done for AX or Otakon.. if that gets one early I may do Saisyu Kusanagi for Otakon

Well I have my Malin costume done(still have to get a wig through)and am going to wear again at A-kon:
http://ladydeathaya.tripod.com/iceplace/id148.html

I also plan to go as Ash.I'm not quite sure about his jacket as to how to get the zipper to the side,but than again I might have to just make the jacket.I found some really good pants at Foleys two weeks ago,they were little tight,but than his are suppose to be tight.I hope I can get 'em this weekend.Also what's that thing between his jacket and pants?Tank top?Or underwear?I think the hardest part about the costume is keeping my nails in shape b not bitting them so I can get press ons or something for it.

Again I ask what your talking about, why are you saying people can only cosplay a KOF character if there the same race as that charater. I'm a female Ash Crimson cosplayer, but in the game Ash Crimson is male- on your list it says girls only.

Lots of KOF characters aren't on the list, are they allready taken or something?

Are you running some very serious photo shoot or something? if so where?

Also consider that KOF characters often don't look like the ethincity they are in the game. For ex. Iori's Japanese right? but he's got red hair and blue eyes, now you could dye your hair and get contacts, or you could get some one with blue eyes and red hair.


very connfused,

Wow awesome job on your Malin costume! I am also planning on making Malin costume for Otakon. All the screenshots that I've seen of her outift aren't that big and I can't see all the details, but your costume looks good! I hope mine turns out like that.

Aw bummer I was hoping to be the first Ash cosplayer.Ah well why aim to be first when I can just take my time and make the costume as good if not better than my Malin costume.To tell the truth those leg warmers would fall down everytime I tried walking.It was a big pain wearing it at Ushicon.Speaking of which of pics of my costume were taken at home a few weeks after Ushicon since not many took pics of e and those that did don't have them online.Oh yeah I've seen a Sleeping Beatuy doll at the Disney Store that kinda looks like Rose Bernstein and I've been tempted to buy it and dress her up as her. ^_^;

Personaly I think it's better to make the jacket in the zig zag shape it is... but thats realy up to you. It's not to hard, just cut one side of the jacket as if it were going ot cover all the way over to the other sholder seam, then cut your diagnal and 2 stratits in to that.

here's how I did it:

.+:*MeliCat*:+.

When I did Mai a few years ago, I got 2 large pre-made, vacuformed sphears from plastic land, or industral plastic (one of those places on canal). If you out of the NYC area, then check hobby shops or craft stores the should carry vacuformed sphears in a varity of sizes and colors. I suggest doing something I did not, using plastaweld (a specific type of plastic glue) around the joint of the sphear halves. I used hot glue and had to re-do it friday night.

As for keeping them clean- good luck, I just tried to hang on to mine while I walked so they didn't drag all over, and they were still pretty scrached and dirty by the end of the weekend.

If for some reason you can't get vaucuformed sphears then you can always get styrofoam and paper masshe over them and then sand them to make them smoth.

Does anyone know of some cosplayer reference pics for Shen Woo from KOf 2003? I'm trying to get that together, and I'm kind of curious about how people's shirts came out.

Also, does anyone know of an online retailer that sells dress shirts in that color, preferably without breast pockets? I'd hate to waste one of my white shirts in a bad dye job, and I don't want to do alternate color schemes as some people won't have a clue who I'm cosplaying as anyways.

Express makes mens shirts in pretty much every color. Also pink mens shirts aren't that hard to find, even just like a macys should have some. Finaly if youcan't find a color you like, rit dye works pretty well if you keep the water very very hot and add a pinch of salt.

The only things I'm having a bit of difficulty finding are the necklace (the white one, not the leather choker) and some brown boots that aren't more than $30. I've got some at home, but they're too small. If all else fails, I'll just wear some black boots and hope nobody notices.

your best bet on the neclace is to make your own. You can buy leather by the foot or yard at most bead stores. Thats also where I'd get the white parts.

Well... i decided to cosplay Ralf Jones to a photoshoot that's going to happen soon... And since I'm searching for some missing parts, here goes the question:

What type of gloves does he uses? See the pic:
http://www.mundoalterno.com/darkcrimson/1galeria/00team/00ikari_ralf_jones.jpg

And btw, any type of shops where i can buy those gloves?


I think ralf jones has red fingerless leather gloves, check out stores that sell regual (black fingerless leather gloves) or stores that speicalise in gloves, and if your realy hard up check stores that sell motor cycle stuff.

where do you live? if you live in ny I can recomend a few places.

You could by some regular leather gloves and cut the fingers so that they resemble Ralph's. You could try looking in a hardware store for gloves too, sometimes they have some that might help.

If you can find plain batter's gloves of a single color with no logos on them, you could use them for Ralf. You would just have to tailor them to look like his.

dressdragn
04-16-2004, 08:44 AM
you can always dye a pair of gloves to match the color (as long as the orginal color is light). I like to use rit dye, boling water and a pinch of salt.

Course except for characters that have shoes that really stand out(Athena's many costumes,Chris,Shernie,Leona to name a few)it doesn't matter if the shoes are the same brand as the character's.

I've seen it as a big bow, a traditional obi-style tie, and just some simple twists of the fabric. Which have you done or seen done? I'm moving on to the obi next and it occured to me I have no clue which style I want to do... hmmm... any suggestions?

Out of curiosity, does anyone know of where I can find reference pics for '95 Billy Kane?

Thinking about doing that as well, since I can find overalls cheap at lots of places. Plus, I don't think there's nearly enough appreciation in the cosplay world for this character. He's had some neat costumes, and eventually I'd like to do the '03 one. But since I'm short on time and money, I'll try and do '95.

Alaina Yagami
04-21-2004, 04:53 PM

I bought a red turtleneck to modify for my Ash costume yesterday.It's not the same shade as the pants through.

GFO
04-21-2004, 05:43 PM
Turtleneck doesn't match, eh? Are you still going to get the costume done?

And Fighter's Generation has more pics of FF and FF2 Billy than '95 Billy. I think I'm just going to have to D/L '95 and get some screenshots to analyze. AFAIK, he's got some black fingerless gloves, and I think something brown around his waist. Won't be too hard to do, unlike his current outfit.

My pants are on the way. Just waiting for finals to arrive and get over with, and I'll start putting the Shen costume all together. I don't know how the hair color's going to come out...I straightened it on Saturday, and I've got black hair, but all the characters I'm doing are blond. Can't afford a wig, so I hope I'll be able to use some semi-permanent dye by the end of May. I'm a little leery of temporary, spray-in hair colorings.

I can see how you could modify a turtleneck but I think your going to run into some problems here. It’s going to be hard to find matching material for the pants and it will show in every picture.. I'm also not sure what your going
to do about the sleeves..

I’m using a red suit material because it’s heavy enough to make a jacket and pants with but light enough so that it’s easy to work with.

..but anyway I could be wrong you turtle neck idea could work too ^ ^

you may want to consider making the jacket and pants instead of modifing exisiting garments. It will proably match better.

Michi
06-27-2004, 02:19 AM
None of the officially released character art ever shows Kula from behind. But... Before they went bankrupt, SNK used to release these artbook/fanmook things that show each character's outfit broken down to the smallest things like pantyhose and sports bras (I have them for Vice and Mature, all the new '99 designs, and for 2000 Athena)... But I haven't seen one for Kula. It probably exists, but would be INSANELY rare to find. Someday I will get my hands on these mooks because of my KOF fangirl crackwhoreness, but for now I can't really help out.

Honestly though, Kula's hair is so thick and long that it'd cover up whatever you wrote there anyway. Only purpose to having it accurate would be if you wanted to turn around and lift up your hair/wig for photos. That isn't even something Kula does, heh. Since it's a P, maybe you can just write "PretearWink" above the heart and personalize it? ^_^ Haha I don't know.

Yeah, exactly. She has long hair for a reason. XD SNK just likes messing with people's minds and going "Look, she has something on her back. Teehee." -- Actually, that one closeup in the attachment from 2001. o_O And um, that wasn't SNK, that was.. Playmore/Eolith, eww. :X I don't even remember how much of her back is EVER visible when she's a sprite in 2000, either. Hmm.

Now, see, here's the thing...I've already cosplayed as my MOST favorite KoF females so far (Mai - http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=152268&sort=1&cat=500&page=1, Kula - http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=109872&sort=1&cat=500&page=2, Angel - http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=152267&sort=1&cat=500&page=1, Yuri - http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=44033&sort=1&cat=500&page=3, and the '99 version of Athena - http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=131876&sort=1&cat=500&page=2) and I'm at the point where my list is winding down a bit and I'm unsure of which character to tackle next. The only costume I'm dead set on making soon is B. Jenet, so at least that's related. But as far as the actual KoF girls go...I dunno. What should I do? I'm open to suggestions at this point. I know there are a dozen other versions of Athena I could do, although the only one I really like is the 2001 version and my boyfriend pretty much said that he would set that costume on fire if I made it. *I* think it's cute, though! ;P Other than that, I'm stumped. Durr. Suggestions?

Wow, that makes me wanna summarize my SNK cosplay... n.n I've done Mai in five versions, Athena '99, Xiangfei, Shingo... I need to fix up and redo Shingo.. I have a wig for the early version of Athena since I still wanna do '96 and maybe some others.. um.. I've wanted to do Yuri for a while.. I have more Mais I wanna do (no I'll never stop XD) and I wanna do.. well.. a couple of other KOF girls I wanna keep secret right now. ^___^ No other boys 'cept for Shingo though. o_o Well. I did wanna cosplay Jhun for a while, but I have other things I wanna do more than that. Yes.

RenegadePocky - She's so cute, isn't she? I just love her. (P.S. I thought she was cute even before I played with her, then I especially loved her because she's like a cross between Omi and Ken from Weiß Kreuz with her weapons. XD Weiss = <3)

Michi - 2002 Athena was up in the air because it's one of those things where I would make it because my boyfriend likes it, but not necessarily for myself. As for Vice or Mature, I suppose I would pick Vice between the two because she's a crazy ho (what with her writhing around on the floor and all). XD Good suggestions!

Vice and Mature have fun outfits. ^^ Twirly skirts and pantyhose. I am all about pantyhose. I don't know why.

I once wanted to do Chizuru and Blue Mary too... I might still do a rarer outfit of Mary's, but I doubt it. *shrug*

Right now I wanna make use of the long haired Athena wig I bought almost a year ago! T_T

Alaina Yagami
07-19-2004, 07:31 PM
Yeah I'm wanting to go as Athena in one of her long hair costumes since I've got a good purple wig for it.That or maybe Orochi Shermie since the bangs of the wig are the right length.

HealerKou
07-19-2004, 09:15 PM
Long haired Athena is rad. The one I've liked the best is from SNK vs. Capcom CHAOS. Because I like to turn into a mermaid and attack my foes. And have a neat sword with a little floopy thing on it.

Actually, I was looking for good Athena wigs, too...do you guys think something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31412&item=5508072094&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW would be too dark? Or was the one I used for the '99 costume too light?

Michi
07-20-2004, 01:50 AM
Oh man. I totally used to want to cosplay Shermie, but I know it won't happen ever. ^^; Oh well. n.n Chu~ Chu~ Chu~ T_T

And that's a great Athena purple. :D I've always seen her hair as being that deep purple color. I bought a Kelly wig in dark purple at WowWigs.com for mine. ^^; I bought my short Athena wig in the same color, but it was lighter. o_O WowWigs obviously gets their supply from different sources. x___X

Haha. I've played with the idea of doing oldschool/SVC Athena for sooo long. Like, before SVC. x_X I wanted to just do oldschool Athena from her first game. If I did it, I'd have to have my boyfriend with me at ALL times, though. o_o; Or maybe I'd just make it for my own photoshoot. Bleh. @_@;

HealerKou
07-20-2004, 02:16 PM
Little red bikinis are awesome. I liked the one from SVC just a bit better than the regular first costume just for the fact that I like more updated stuff, I guess. I have a gashapon of that one, too. ^_^

But, yeah, that's definitely a "trustworthy male bodyguard" costume. My boyfriend's all like, "You should definitely make that costume." *insert Beavis and Butt-Head laughter here* (That's what I get for thinking out loud)

Doing it just for a photoshoot would be cool for the fact you could have a real sword as a prop instead of some wooden or plastic number that you'd have to carry around at a con. Though with con weapons policies these days they might not even allow anything that looks sharp and/or pointy. Someone I know dressed as Vash once and had a big gun made totally out of foam that you could literally sleep on, and they took it away. ~_~

Would it be alright for a long haired Athena costume and/or Orochi Shermie?

Michi
07-21-2004, 02:52 AM
HealerKou ~ Yeah! I love all the beautiful detail and extras on the SVC design! That costume'll be on the back of mind for a while. It won't be hard to put together if I ever really get down to making it, and I have the wig already.. Perhaps for a summer con? But augh, yeah, her sword is all thin and pointy! That might cause problems. Suck. Mreh. Whenever the day comes that I do wear it at a con, I think I'm going to have my boyfriend be in his Iori costume.. Yes.. Mwahahaha... >_> And yeah, when I brought it up to him that I wanted to cosplay it, he gave me this creepily big smile... o____o Har. XD

Dude, Ash Crimson is hilarious. I'm convinced he's the straightest gay man ever. Like Prince.

There was a really good Ash C. at Katsucon this year, but I don't know who it was. We were doing pretty much all KoF/SNK costumes and apparently there was a KoF photoshoot but we didn't get in on it. Boo.

Oh, and I'm gonna post up that Athena SVC cosplayer you pointed out to me. ^^ I wanted to share it. XD She's got some details wrong (like the gloves? o_O Athena only wears one, and it's a long one..) but she's still cute and it's well made. :D

Michi
07-30-2004, 11:33 AM
I love Midnight Bliss Iori, haha! I've been thinking of cosplaying it someday since my boyfriend cosplays Iori, and it'd be a funny pair for us. XD But if you do the purple dress version, remember that it's called Miss X and was originally from the NeoGeo Pocket game "SNK Gals Fighters" and didn't originate in SVC. :3

Velvet for Kula? That'd be interesting... o_o; Heavy, though.

So, dammit, what KOF costumes is everyone working on or planning to do next? Apparently I'm making a new blue Mai as my next KOF costume, 'cause my old one from 2002 was my boyfriend's favorite but I don't really have it anymore. (Some of it came apart, and I kinda um.. grew out of the top.. yes.. >_>) Haha dammit. x_x I have some nice blue fans for it too.. Even though Mai's are always white.

And Michi? I've had this idea for a while to alter costumes for the "kids" in the games... Like, specifically for KoF, I wanna alter Bao and Chris to look older/cooler, and for lack of a better description.. like complete punks... I know i'd have to keep enough of the original costumes/colors to make them recognizeable.. but I got the idea ever since I saw the "Smart Chang" and "Cool Choi" strikers in '00.. ^.^''

other than that, I want to do Whip for Fanime05...

2. I wonder wha Rock's alt is.. x.x
3. and I have new inclination to learn how to use Ralf... ^.^''

(also, i'm not planning on wearing it long, but I have a chibiRock outfit from 01, because I *know* there's a Terry somewhere, at every con. (it's like Where's Waldo) I just wanna do the "Stand up!" pose with a Terry @.@)

I'm hoping to do normal Yuri very early next year.. like at one of the first cons I go to in 2005. I've only wanted to do it for a couple of years now. x___x

I can't decide whether to get back to making my Kula or Ash costume first.I don't really want to switch back 'n forth making costumes since working on one at a time can be a big pain depending on the difficulty of the costume.

Whichever one you can get finished right now... and would most like to be... I suppose. ^^ I have so many KOF characters I wanna do, so I just have to figure when would be best to fit them all in and which ones I wanna do sooner than later. ^^;

Since my hair's short right now,I thought about wearing my Shingo costume again at AnimeFEST.Anyways how do I make his gloves?I tried once,but they didn't turn out right.

Michi
08-08-2004, 10:55 PM
You could always just make his arm bands from '97. XD I really dunno how to go about making gloves, aside from altering existing ones. I have to learn though, since I intend to do Shingo '98 cosplay eventually... I have the jacket. >_>

For gloves...go to any motorcycle or biking store (or in the case of King..Tuxedo Den...)...they always have them in stock...

Michi

Yeah but Shingo's gloves from Kyo are different than regular gloves. =/ They really have to be made or heavily altered.

Okey.Well I already made the armbands so I thought the gloves would help make it seem new again.

They make, or at least made officaly licenced Shingo and Kyo gloves (joel has a pair). I'm not sure if there still avaible in stores but I'd check it out. Also check ebay and see if anyones looking to part with them.

I was planning on doing Yuri for CNAnime 04 (which is very soon yay!) But, I can't really find any good pics that show details of her gloves... Have you any? Or, would you know what material and other details I need to make them? Help is greatly appreciated. ^-^ Btw, you make a great Mai.

Those shouldn't be too hard to modify...get driving gloves of the color of your choice...and make wrist guards out of pleather..use thick thread (leather grade) and attach o.o

For some reason I remember hearing bad things about that NGF site. =/ Hm. I don't think that they'll be restocking either, at least not with anything official. ^^;

Diagnosed ~ I attached a picture of Yuri... Her gloves are pretty simple, fingerless gloves with thick wristbands. You could probably buy regular costume gloves, dye them blue, cut off and hem the fingers, and then fold up the ends to make them look like hers. ^_^; I think I'd do something like that if I didn't find something similar. Also, thankyou for the compliment on Mai. ^^ I'll be at CNA but I dunno if I'll be wearing a Mai costume or not. We'll see. :bigtu: Good luck with Yuri.

Thanks so much guys!! ^-^ I'll make sure to say hi to you at CN, Michi! Driving gloves eh? ^^;;; I probably am stupid for not knowing this, but where do you get them?

Check any motorcycling shop for gloves

Michi

I'll be in the costume in my avatar (and gallery, haha) the first day of CN. ^^ I look forward to seeing Yuri -- and your Minako is pretty darn cute too. ^_^

Haha I dunno if motorcycle gloves would work all that great for Yuri, but they could be a possible last resort if altering costume gloves doesn't work...

Those look nice,but if they're rare than they'll probably be expensive.

Why costume gloves instead of motorcycle gloves? Oh, and apparently there's an army surplus store downtown that sells driving gloves for like 9 bucks!! ^-^ Lol, thanks for the compliment! I really look forward to seeing your Masume at CN. Are you making any alterations?

Michi
08-14-2004, 03:22 AM
Because Yuri isn't wearing motorcycle style gloves.. XD; Those would be kinda bulky, but it's really just my opinion and how I'd do it. o.o;; *shrug* Ehehe.

Aha Kasumi? ^.^ I might be fixing the side ribbons but otherwise it'll look the same at CN as it does in the two newest pics of it in my gallery. I also might bring out a new blue Mai if I have time to buy fabric before the con. I dunno. ^^

Diagnosed
08-14-2004, 12:24 PM
Blue Mai?! That would be awesome!! Get some nice satiny fabric, and you'll be set lol. I think the only problem with costume gloves is that the stitching is a different look than what Yuri has I think... If I'm thinking of the same type of gloves as u are... ^^;;

Michi
08-14-2004, 06:19 PM
I did a blue Mai once before, but it's not really wearable anymore. ^^; ... ee that rhymed. Anyway, er, it was my boyfriend's favorite of my Mai costumes, so I want to make a new one... Also, I've got new blue fans. :D

I think it'd look fine, using costume gloves. They'd just have to be altered a lot. o_o; I altered some for my Kasumi, but not as much as would be needed for Yuri.. I just think they'd look better than bulky, dark driving gloves.. but.. I dunno. Maybe it'd look fine, too.

Michi
08-15-2004, 11:33 PM
Same fabric I used with my red Mai and Fatal Fury Mai. Well. Probably. I don't want to make any more satin Mais, as fun as that fabric is to work with. XD It looks fine with Mai, but.. it looks better with plain cotton fabrics. I'm gonna totally remake red Mai at some point too.. I want to make the most accurate Mai I can, and that one isn't good enough for me as much as I've improved the design. >O *Mai nazi* :D

How do add the cross design on Kyo's shirt (2001)

Michi
08-16-2004, 12:05 AM
Bias tape.. Fabric paint.. Sewing on thin layers of fabric.. x_X There's a couple of ways you could do it.

...The design originated in KOF '99, though... ^_^;

so I know I've asked this before, but has anyone done, or seen a Zero or Orinal
Zero cosplayer? OZ's been on my list forever and I think I might actualy get him done for Katsu. But I'd certinly like some advice on the "teeth" at the botom of his skirt.

I'm thinking perhaps casting, but resin is proably to heavy and brittle.

Maybe foam?
