The New Vikki image won't load, since they don't allow direct linking lolz. But I do know what Vikki's outfit looks like in Suikoden 4. Personally I'd do the 4 one! I'm considering cosplaying Vikki myself and I probably picking her new version lolz.

Wait until you play the game if you want to cosplay from 4. You don't even have a back shot of the costume available! Wouldn't it be horrible if you made the whole thing then realised it's wrong?

As for "revamped", Suikoden II Viki is already "revamped" since she originally appeared in Genso Suikoden.

Go with 2. :\ Rosiel has a good point. It would suck having to redo the back because its wrong. Plus... ... why can't people wait for something to come out? >_>

well for 1. using common sense i can tell what the back looks like
and 2. it really doesn't matter cause i'm not cosplaying her until february 2005 at Ushicon so i have plenty of time to play the game beforehand. Still, that doesn't mean i can't get started now.

and the only reason i would like to do IV instead of II is because when you do something that hasn't come out yet, it's less likely to have already been cosplayed to death.

lastly, that comment about viki being from Suiko 1, i know. i just noticed the more drastic costume change between 2 and 4 rather than her looks in 1 and 3, but thank you for keeping an eye out for wanabe gamers :bigtu:

I have seen Vicki cosplayed MAYBE one time. ONE. o_O I don't think you have to worry about her being overcosplayed.

That's not common sense... that's guessing. >_>; Don't get your panties in a wad about something that isn't meant to be offending either. You wanted suggestions, we gave you suggestions and reasons for them. :\

sorry if "sounded" upset through my text -_^ i wasn't attempting to come off that way. just seemed like everyone was getting mad at me for even considering suiko IV. I actually like the design of her dress a lil more and to be true to the artwork, i have brown hair, not black so it would be better to do IV. I have actually found about 10 people who did the older vicki and some were pretty nice. of course, this isn't going to be cosplayed for a while so i was just wondering about feedback on materials and which dress looks less complicated to sew etc. however, thank you for being open and honest with me. i do appreciate all feedback.

cutelilzombie, have you seen the trailer for Suiko 4 yet? There's a brief appearance of Viki in it (around the 4 minute mark). You also get a shot of her back for a second. If you don't have it, you can go to gametrailers.com and download the video there.
