So...

In the past we had a "SNK and KOF Cosplay" thread, but that got eaten up by other threads... Then we had "King of Fighters Cosplay", but that kinda got off-topic a lot and is really hard to find anything in anymore. We've got threads that've popped up and sorta died for games like Samurai Shodown or Last Blade, and I think it's just about time we made one big thread to encompass all SNK game cosplay. ^^

Let's try to keep this on topic with SNK cosplay. For discussion of the games, you can post to this thread here: http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=911412

Thanks! ^_^

SNK is most well known currently for The King of Fighters series, but before that their big series was Fatal Fury. They're also responsible for Art of Fighting, Samurai Shodown, The Last Blade, Metal Slug, and more. So if you've cosplayed from any of these (or others!) or plan to, feel free to post here. ^^

To get things started again... What are everyone's plans for 2005? I mentioned in the other KOF thread that I finally want to get Yuri and at least one version of Athena done next year. I also wanna get back into making Mai costumes, but I want to make her earlier ones that people don't really know about instead of going back to KOF again (well, except for the new blue KOF version I plan to make at the request of my boyfriend). I have ideas from just about every SNK fighting game but there's too many of them to get all of them done anytime soon. I'm sorry, SamSho and Last Blade ideas~~ ^_^;;

Offhand, I only have Alba Meira(KOF:MI)planned as my SNK costume for 2005... though I'm sure 'LoneWolf or even the local peeps here might talk me into something else since the Metal Slug group fell through this year.

I have Mai's alternate from KoFMax Impact almost finished as well as a whole splay of King's different years (wig time! ><)...a friend wants me to do Shiki from SamSho, but I dunnnnno...get me someone who can draw snakes well!

Gothic Catboy ~ Wearing it where, though? :P

RenegadePocky ~ Mmm Shiki. *_* I thought of cosplaying her a couple of years back. I'd want it to be perfect, though, and doing a bodysuit with the designed painted on looks weird to me. x_x; But it's not like it's very smart to do it where you're actually painting it on your body. XD; Dammit. Oh well. When my computer finally gets here from California (hopefully before the end of the month) I think I still have some GREAT references of Shiki that I could send you. ^^ We'll see. I might have deleted them. ^^;;

*comes into thread and dances around*

Eventually there will be more SNK cosplay, but I think I'm taking a break. After a couple years straight of having at least one costume at every con from KOF, Last Blade, or Samurai Shodown (but especially KOF), I'm tapped out. I still want to make Leona, Rimiruru (at the request of my friend who wants to be Nakoruru), and Fio from Metal Slug at the request of my fiance (OrochiSerge on here) who already cosplayed as Marco, but he's a dinkus and will just have to wear it again.

For my own benefit, I would also love to finally make Blue Mary, and CHAOS version Athena. Since those are easy, they're much more likely. But since I'm cutting back on cons by like half, I don't know when I'd wear them. XD

P.S. On the subject of Shiki, one of my friends did get her full tattoo. It's actually just the outline right now, because the coloring will be mucho expensive to finish, but it's pretty impressive. After she's done, she'll be making the costume.

i made a Vanessa costume that i <3 very much despite the inaccuracies. i hope to wear it again eventually but first i must find a better wig, my old one is just embarassing.

as for other characters, i would really like to take a shot at Blue Mary or Whip sometime ^^

I have my Angel costume I'm going to wear at OhayoCon and then my Mignon 2nd player costume for Anime Detour, should be fun:-)

We need to jam at anime detour this year

Michi
12-15-2004, 02:09 AM
Hmm. I should start trying to gather SNK/KOF groups for future cons. >_> If only I could decide exactly what I'm wearing to future cons. ;-; I want to do lots of SNK stuff, but my other ideas keep getting in the way. Right now we're focused on Guilty Gear. =/ Nyar.


CHAOS version Athena.

It's really just "Athena" version Athena. XD It's how she first looked in 1986. I have some great oldschool artwork of her from then in a couple of my artbooks. Haha. The only real major difference between the Athena version and SVC Chaos version is that the SVC one is a little bit more spruced up. She doesn't have that red double ribbon thing with the purple stripes at the end in Athena, nor does she have the additional wrap around things on her upper thighs... Not like anyone would really know. T_T

Okay, I know you didn't ask for any comparison but I couldn't help myself. XD I love the outfit. I still wanna do it myself. ><


P.S. On the subject of Shiki, one of my friends did get her full tattoo. It's actually just the outline right now, because the coloring will be mucho expensive to finish, but it's pretty impressive. After she's done, she'll be making the costume.

That is insane. Like, in the amazingly awesome sort of way of being insane. That's major dedication; I'd love to see it!


(They'd prolly make me put something on under that Mai....)

Yeah, they probably will. ^_^; I've only had problems at one con with any of my Mais... but.. x_X Is there any way you can add anything to the length? ;-;

Gah, Mai's my best character in most of SNK's fighters! ( I used to be a real Capcom diehard, but over the past few years, SNk has been alluring me over to their side.) Mai not only fit my style of play beautifully, she's also great for suprise attacks on opponents (especially the ariel moves)

Promise you'll let me take pics!


Anyhoo, I'll be going with a group this year as the cast of Metal Slug. I'll be going as "Marco Dennis Rossi", we've got a Tarma Roving the III, Fio, and an Eri. Still hoping to get ourselves a Nadia. (No Trevors...Trevor sucked almost as much as Metal Slug 4. Lol) :chatah:

I want to make some SNK characters for next year... as I said in the old KOF post, I want to do Billy Kane :skidude2: , k9999 and make a 2000-2001 team, with an Iori, a Vanessa, a Seth and I as Ramon, will be go with a friends to make this team for some cosplay :cool:

And about another SNK chars, until now I want to recicle Basara (see him here (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=136437)) to make a mini SS team with a friend who goes as Gaira :bigtu:

Yeah, that's actually what I meant because despite the differences being small, I like the CHAOS version better than the original, which to me was just plain and boring. Like she's fighting in a regular bathing suit. I actually have a gashapon of the original design.

We are...BATHING SUIT FIGHTERS! *flex*

I'll be wearing it to AD this upcoming year... and I also don't know what other cons I'll be going to. As for the armour, I managed to fix the shoulders for halloween and they held fine... The chest piece was another story. That shouldn't take long to fix though... I'm thinking magnets.

Anyways, I don't know how much time I can spend fixing up the Charlotte costume as I have another costume in the works to debut at Anime Detour.

Plus I can't walk quickly in heels... that's a man for you.

Oh, and a fighting game character nobody knows about (It may be SNK, maybe not... it's that obscure.) Roomi. I'm going to try to pursuede those affiliated with me to make that costume and to be the "hero of the con," so to say. If you don't know what she looks like, do a google picture search for it.

Roomi's from a Neo Geo game called Galaxy Fight, but it's not by SNK. It's by Sunsoft, the people behind the funny fighting game Waku Waku 7. :D There's a lot of Neo Geo games that people tend to think are made by SNK just for being on the system, but that's not always true. ><

Gothic_Catboy
12-17-2004, 12:31 AM
Ahhh! So someone else knows of this game! I really didn't know where the game came from, but that game only has one thing to offer... SNK or not... it's Roomi.

Michi
12-17-2004, 12:54 AM
I haven't played it but I'm familiar with it. I really loved Waku Waku 7 though. XD; Though I did hear the only good thing about Galaxy Fight was Roomi, haha.

As for SNK related stuff... Even though she isn't exactly an SNK character she's still KOF, but I really wanna cosplay Habana Moe from KOF EX. ;_; I forgot about her for a while, but I've wanted to be her since I saw her design. I love KOF EX and I really wanna get EX 2.. and Moe was one of the characters I remembered I could do perfectly when I got my bellybutton pierced.. XD and it's pierced now, so woot. I'll need another piercing in one ear before I match her, though. It's just finding a wig will be kinda hard. ><

Hey now, as much as I like to believe I have General Morden ready to go, I don't. I know PARTS of what I need to get done to get him going, and I really want to do it....here's hoping.

Also, we need to get working on building a MOBS Mobile Satelite Defense Unit, and a boxing glove on a spring.

By the way, on that site, realt toy guns, I saw that they had a "Make a tank" competiton...We should email those kids that won, see if we can make ourselves a Super Vehicle 001 metal SLug out of a golf cart...or maybe a lawn mower....

I wonder..

Anyone think Admin would be ok with separating the game forum into little subdivisions of forums by company? That could alleviate a bit of 'where'd that damn thread go?'

Michi
12-18-2004, 02:13 AM
I think that'd be too much. The only reason there's a seperate FF forum is because we used to be absolutely overloaded with FF cosplay questions in the general video game forum. x_X;

It's not that confusing. I don't even understand why it is. If some people are talking about Metal Slug cosplay and you don't follow, just scroll past and talk about KOF or something. ^^;; You guys just made three totally off-topic posts, y'know, and it's starting to turn into the old thread. :P That is exactly what I was trying to avoid by making this. I made this so we could have an organized thread that wasn't cluttered by off-topic stuff, because the old KOF thread was barely even on topic and was really lengthy. x_x; The one before that one was pretty good, but it got lost.. and there was even another before that, I think. Oi!

Anyway. It looks like we'll have a rather varied turnout for the SNK vs Capcom gathering at AX next year. ^^ I think a thread for the gathering in the AX forum might be made rather soon, hehe. More Metal Slug characters have shown up in the fighting games made by SNK in recent years (before we had Fio as a striker in KOF, and now Marco as a major character in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum) so it's a fitting time to have a group of MS cosplayers show up with the rest. :D Sounds good to me.

Speaking of which, most of the MS crew will be in SNK's new fighter, "SNK Battle Colleseum".

Anyways, a MOBS would be kinda hard to carry around I think. The punching glove, while a good idea, has to be weighted properly. Otherwise, it'll just drag on the ground, or break off the spring/slinky. whatever we use, anyways.

By the way, I made threads for SNK/KOF gatherings at both major cons this year if anyone is interested. ^^

So far, only Marco has been confirmed, but i'm usre I've heard that either Eri or Fio will be in the game as well...maybe they'll put the martian back in.

Actually, there's a big difference. :P Especially when defining things for cosplay purposes, because a lot of people get confused easily (as I was saying earlier). Neo Geo is a gaming system, and SNK is a company. There are non-SNK characters in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum, because they're from games that were simply on the Neo Geo. @_@; So it's not exactly an SNK equivalent of Capcom Fighting Evolution or anything. ^^; I'm surprised they didn't put more non-SNK Neo Geo fighters in there though.

Yes but, the Neo Geo system was made by SNK. it's there baby. Just like my Neo Geo pocket colour, which is made by SNK. It's the same company.

Also... I believe that "Mudman" is in actuality a woman... though I'm not sure, because s/he comes from a crappy crappy game.

GAHHHH no fair. Sexy new Shiki art makes me want to cosplay her again. But I know I'd look awful with her hair, for one, actually. x_x;; Sigh.

Ai has a cute costume! o.o

Mudman is from World Heroes. ^^; Old ADK game. I've never played it though. I don't think I want to. x_X But a few of my SNK artbooks have extra Neo Geo sections that have art from it. XD

Cyan Bloodbane ~ Yeah, but my point is simply that every game on the Neo Geo isn't an SNK game. o_o; That's all. I know how closely related they are and everything. ^_^;

First of all, world heroes is craptacularly awesome.
That goes either ways.
As for an intro to anyone new reading the thread, I was most recently cosplaying from SNK at Ohayocon 2k4 with my girlfriend as 2P Vanessa. From KoF, I've also cosplayed K', K'9999, Shingo, Ralf, Shen Woo, and Terry Bogard (Duh. XD) The last three have no pics uploaded in my gallery yet, but I plan on changing that. I've cosplayed Setsuna and Kaede from last Blade, and Galford from SamSho (which I will be wearing at Okayocon 2k5).
Right now, nothing from MI really catches my interest, as with Battle collesium, but I would love to try Duo Lon from KoF 2k3, and finish making Rock Howard from Garou:MoTW.

When do you have DuoLon/Rock Howard planned for 2005? A friend of mine is trying to get me to go to AX2005, but chances might be slim since it always seems to fall on July 4th.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask if anyone happened to know what kind of crimson lensed shades that Alba Meira wears in KOF:MI...? I'm not sure if they're truly based upon any particular name brand, but if anyone could point me in the direction of anything resembling it would be nice. Much thanks ahead of time...! :cool:

I'm out of Orlando/Central Florida area... plenty of surf shops around here(let alone 45mins east in Cocoa Beach)to check out if heading there is my best bet. :) I don't forsee the Alba Meira costume as being too damnably tough in comparison to other SNKers, though I'm not sure about that weird "neck" thing he has... it's like an extended turtleneck or mask that goes to behind the ear level. I may just nix that from the final result though.

I'm out of Orlando/Central Florida area... plenty of surf shops around here(let alone 45mins east in Cocoa Beach)to check out if heading there is my best bet. :) I don't forsee the Alba Meira costume as being too damnably tough in comparison to other SNKers, though I'm not sure about that weird "neck" thing he has... it's like an extended turtleneck or mask that goes to behind the ear level. I may just nix that from the final result though.

Oy, Ken, Looking around for Cyclist Shades:

Or Biker's Glasses:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7937339678&category=50424

I'm fairly certain you should be able to get something around the FL area. My K' Glasses are somewhat smiliar in shape, and I got those at a costume shop.
For Alba, I'd ask you to just try adding a ling of fabric around the top if you're wearing a think turtleneck. If you're buying a spandex top, try getting the tops that come with the facemask. Just cut around the top for your funky ear level stuff. If you were planning K' though, pleeease stay away from Harley and/or biker stores. They kinda...no wait, they really, really suck. XD

Much thanks for the assist...!! I'll probably end up going with the biker shades(it's too bad the first link had shades that were reversed of the colour that Alba wears, LoL), unless I find something local. I figure now's the best time to find them, since it's cold 'n such. :cool:

I think it's safe to assume Mudman is a guy. ^_^

Ah good ol' Mudman... him and his stupid dances...

I'm rather suprised there aren't many World Heroes cosplayers. That game had some crazy cool characters. Captain Kid was always cool adn then there's always Rasputin... wait, that guy was too creepy.

Could anyone help me with a cosplay outfit for Clark Still? I only really need help with the vest, like what material to use. I'm thinking about going to a con in july so there is no hurry. Also if someone is willing to make it I'll pay depending on the cost. I'm new at cosplay so if I sound too newbish please feel free to flame me (ok maybe not but hey). I'll be greatful for any help.

By the by...screw the Mai bell...found a big gold plastic Christmas ornament..an awl and some wire cutters are doing the trick just lovely ~_~

And cause I'm sorta new to the midwest....when is C-kon? South Bend isn't too far away....

12-30-2004, 11:18 PM
well its sponsered by the local college's anime club and it didnt happen this year, although I dont know why. It was really small. I live in Carmel which has a big stereotype with it... which I hate with a passion (people known for being rich and snobby). btw... isnt mai's hair brown?

Michi

Yes, Mai's hair is brown ('cept for some alternates @_@) but RenegadePocky first cosplayed King.. and does so more often and well. :D

Eikjen
12-31-2004, 05:12 PM
by chance would you know a an online store that sells military items for cheap? I dont care if its real or costume. I can't find any place that sells a vest like Clark wears for less than $25, and eBay is notorious for having people sell poor quality stuff in the military category. Otherwise I'm gonna do Ryo cause I have %85 of the costume ready.

The tail tucks into a little hole so it can be supported around my waist...I'm thinking quilting safety pins might work just as well though..gonna try it once I get this bell (cracked and went commission lol)..that way it won't lose much form since the thing is so formfitting and snug >:

While the silkscreened insignia on my gi right now wouldnt work, I can get another white one for cheap and dye it orange... not to mention black belts dont cost much and the embroidery isnt that important. I hope it works out!

On the Capcom Fighting Evolution topic in conjunction with NeoGeo related characters...

Look what I found in one of the endings in CFE... does this mean there's a statute of limitations on characters? Or... how could they do this? Michi should know which character I'm referring to, which means... is this character considered a Capcom character or still SNK/NeoGeo? Or would it matter in a con setting?

Michi
01-09-2005, 06:24 PM
o_o; That.. isn't any SNK character I know of. The pink haired girl next to Felicia? Is it from an ADK game or something else on the NeoGeo? I really don't recognize it. Haha. I suck.

Eikjen
01-09-2005, 10:15 PM
probably something from the darkstalkers anime storyline that wasnt brought into the DS game, maybe her sister? :::doesnt know anything about DS cept for very vague memories of what he saw in the anime 10 yrs ago:::

Gothic_Catboy
01-10-2005, 12:04 AM
Anyways, Michi I thought you would have had that one... I believe... at least who I think it is... is Roomi.

I thought you said a while back that you knew of her from Galaxy Fight. But anyways... would that still considered an SNK/Neogeo cosplay or Capcom now because they put her in that game?

Michi
01-10-2005, 02:46 AM
*shakes head* But.. That isn't Roomi. o_O I would've recognized that a bit easier. Her hair is a lot different (it's wavy, in a ponytail, and the ponytail even has a closure on the end.. and isn't Roomi's a lot more red than that pink?).. and I don't remember Roomi ever wearing that, despite the fact that isn't Felicia's normal wear either. But um. Yeah, I can see where you're coming from, but the similarities seem to be just coincidence. =/ Why would Capcom randomly put an old Sunsoft character into their new fighting game that's all about their company, anyway? They'd need permission, and why bother to go to all the trouble for such an unknown character for just an ending sequence? It's not her. ^^; Perhaps it's some old Capcom character? R. Mika already has the big cameo in Felicia's ending, but all the other endings for that game have random Capcom characters all over them. I dunno. I don't know Capcom very well at all.
Besides that, Roomi is NOT SNK. She's Sunsoft, and is from a NeoGeo game, but she isn't "SNK/NeoGeo". :P

Jigsaw
01-10-2005, 04:08 AM
That's not any SNK character, that's Yellow Iris. She's one of the main characters in Capcom's (somewhat obscure) side-scrolling beat-em-up "Battle Circuit" (http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?letter=&game_id=7038).

Michi
01-10-2005, 04:25 AM
Thank you for confirming my guess, Jigsaw. :D She's an old obscure Capcom character indeed, haha. How fun.

Let's get back on topic to SNK. >_> So would anyone recognize it if I did a Habana Moe costume? I noticed one of our Brazilian KOF cosplayers on the site has started work on hers, but I've only seen one other Moe before her. Poor unloved GBA KOF games. I can't wait to own the second one, since I heard it improved on a lot. *_*

I'm contemplating dishing out the cash for actual Converse for my Yuri. I have red shoes for her already that I previously used for Zell Dincht, but people may think I'm just lazy. ;.; (They weren't even accurate for Zell...) But in 2000 she stopped wearing her Converse, so it'd be okay! *shakes fist* >_> It's just that once I cut my hair I dunno how much I'd wear Yuri. Or maybe I'll figure out how to attach my extention finally. I just wouldn't feel right getting a wig for something that fits my real hair so well. x_x

For more conversation.. What version of Athena would people most like to see cosplayed? XD I have two on my "must do" list and three on my "wanna do but dunno yet" list and two others on my "this'd be fun but silly so maybe not" list, so I hope they're ones people would enjoy. XD Hahahaha. (Can you tell it's 4:30 am here?)

No, I've seen about the same amount of Last Blade and SamSho cosplay. They're just both rare. SamSho does seem to show up more often, but I dunno if that's really true. There was a Last Blade group at AX a couple of years ago that some of my friends were part of, and I remember LoneWolf did Kaede and there was an Akari at Otakon '03. ... Come to think of it, actually, I've seen Last Blade more often recently than SamSho! XD Friends of mine recently did a Nakoruru and Rimururu duet at some California cons, but I can't remember actually seeing much SamSho in recent years besides that. o_O Besides from like random ones here and there like Kaede and Akari at Otakon two years ago. :P Well. There was actually a SamSho group back at FanimeCon in like.. '01.. They were a martial arts group from a school. XD


I'd say the SamSho costumes seen the most are ChamCham and Nakaruru... and on the oft-case times, Haohmaru and Ukyo... perhaps the other cosutmes are too "costume intense" for others to make? (Or too shirtless in the case of Basara?

If I was a guy I would TOTALLY BE BASARA. I love him. XD I also wanna do Ukyo, which I can pull off as a girl since Ukyo doesn't totally bare his chest. None of the females in SamSho appeal to me aside from maybe Charlotte, but I don't like her enough to want to bother with her armor.

...and I remember a while ago I was asked to be Rimururu. o_o

Gothic_Catboy
01-14-2005, 11:20 PM

Yeah, I know I've expressed my love for Basara before on these boards. XD But since I can't do him, my first SamSho cosplay (whenever that is) would be Ukyo. It's just not.. in the immediate future. >_> I'll probably do Last Blade first, because that'd be a pair with my boyfriend and I don't think he wants to do any SamSho characters. Hm.

Yeah, your Charlotte was pretty darn good Gothic_Catboy. ^_^ I have a friend that wants to do it, too. I like her a lot, but I don't even know if I'd fit her well. o_O

Eikjen ~ As far as I know, I'm pretty sure there were no Samurai Shodown games released for Dreamcast. They're all either on the Neo Geo home system or arcade. I think Samurai Shodown V/Zero is supposed to be on the new platforms, but maybe just in Japan... and there was a 3D SamSho released for PlayStation a long time ago. ^_^;;

Whoo, King of Fighters!

Currently, I'm working on five costumes from KOF for Anime North 2005. Yuri, Athena, Hinako and Malin from 2003, and Mignon Beart's 2P from Maximum Impact. Costumes are progressing nicely, lucky for me, as I don't have too much time before I have to start other costumes @_@

Yuri is about 95% done, all I need is to find shoes, which shouldn't be too hard. "Converse"-style hightops are in style, so naturally, there are lots of cheap non-brand name shoes like them around. Hinako is half done, and Mignon is being so difficult it isn't funny.

A few questions, though. We're looking into doing one of the "alternate colors" of Mignon's 2nd player outfit, but I've never been able to find pictures. I assume it's the same, just with an alternate colorscheme, but I'm not sure of what these schemes are. We can't find white fur - but there is a huge abundance of green, yellow and black furs at the local fabricland. So we maybe want to switch colors. Does someone know what the other schemes are?

Also, I found THIS (http://www.bakachan.com/cosplay/coshelp/patterns/marin.htm), and am wondering what exactly it is. Is it some sort of official "pattern", or just character art? It looks like a sewing pattern because of the tips page.

Currently, I'm working on five costumes from KOF for Anime North 2005. Yuri, Athena, Hinako and Malin from 2003, and Mignon Beart's 2P from Maximum Impact. Costumes are progressing nicely, lucky for me, as I don't have too much time before I have to start other costumes @_@

Malin is the only character there that originated in 2003. ^_~ Well, and technically Athena at least costume-wise, if you're specifically doing her fluffy '03 outfit. Hinako was first seen in KOF 2000, and Yuri has been in the series since '94 and originated in Art of Fighting 2.


Yuri is about 95% done, all I need is to find shoes, which shouldn't be too hard. "Converse"-style hightops are in style, so naturally, there are lots of cheap non-brand name shoes like them around.

*blinkblink* In style? They are? Wow, I don't pay attention to fashion at all. It seems this really is a good year to finally do Yuri. :bigtu:


We can't find white fur - but there is a huge abundance of green, yellow and black furs at the local fabricland. So we maybe want to switch colors. Does someone know what the other schemes are?

She has a black one with... blonde hair? I can't remember, as I've only rented the game once and didn't like Mignon much anyway. XD But she does have a black one. If somebody else can't tell you, maybe we'll rent the game again before you plan to debut the costume? >_> haha or you could rent it, but you have to do extra stuff to unlock alternate colors of the alternates themselves.


Also, I found THIS (http://www.bakachan.com/cosplay/coshelp/patterns/marin.htm), and am wondering what exactly it is. Is it some sort of official "pattern", or just character art? It looks like a sewing pattern because of the tips page.

It's a pattern from a cosplay magazine in Japan. They aren't official, but they're patterns made specifically for the characters by these magazines. ^^

Ooh. I haven't been looking much into the older games, but I knew Yuri and Athena appeared in multiple games because of the KOF 10th Anniversary website.

*blinkblink* In style? They are? Wow, I don't pay attention to fashion at all. It seems this really is a good year to finally do Yuri. :bigtu:

Everywhere I go at school, at the mall, etc, there's always those "punk cliques" wearing them. And I've seen them as cheap as 10$ CND, it's just a matter of going out to pick them up.

Yay, black. My search for pictures shows up empty - there's only one picture of the cat outfit, period. Just the white one. I'm going to have to go get my PS2 from my friend's house and rent it and figure this out @_@ Hmm.

Costume debuts on May 27th, 2005, so we have some time, but we're aiming to get these costumes done a lot sooner so we can work on our other groups.

o_____o Do you know of any specific stores? Since you live in Ontario too I could actually find these stores. XD I would love to find cheap shoes for my Yuri, since I was kinda wary about spending so much for official Converse on a costume I probably won't wear much. ><

Yup ^_^ I went today to look. Zellers has some for $8, just need to add the star. WalMart has them for $12, and I'm not sure what PayLess Shoe Source has them for, but I know they have them. All Canadian prices. =0

I think I saw them on Electrique Boutique a while back, too.

Anyone know who the Neowave artist is? I reaaally like their style.

Oh and pocky... the Jo Ann's near me is closed again, so I'm going to check out Hobby Lobby or a Michaels Craft Store, so hopefully I can get back to you on that fabric. btw what exactly is that fabric called again? you said something like Muslin in an earlier post.

Whoo, King of Fighters!

A few questions, though. We're looking into doing one of the "alternate colors" of Mignon's 2nd player outfit, but I've never been able to find pictures. I assume it's the same, just with an alternate colorscheme, but I'm not sure of what these schemes are. We can't find white fur - but there is a huge abundance of green, yellow and black furs at the local fabricland. So we maybe want to switch colors. Does someone know what the other schemes are?

as far as I know, the black version is your best bet then. I'm pretty sure she is blond for that, like Michi said. The only other alt color outfit I unlocked for her was a more scantily clad version with more of a kitty bikini look going on, similar style but not the same. But maybe there is more? I haven't played that much because I don't own a ps2 myself (or the game actually), also why I can't check to make sure...
it'd be really great if there were some shots of their alt colors around.... since the design does change a little in some, not just a palette swap. I was trying to find a picture of the third alt color option for mai's outfit (not her alternate outfit, the one where she looks more like traditional mai) and can't seem to find any pics : ( if anyone knows of a site to check, lemme know plz.
i don't have any SNK costumes in the works but eventually I want to do Nakoruru from Capcom versus SNK 2(have most everything I need but it got pushed back by 3 other costumes I decided I'm doing first), Whip, and Mai. Maybe King as well, but I'm not sure yet. I am rather new to KOF though.... really any fighting game for that matter. But I will try to make them accurate, when I do get around to making them. hehe I'm sure I may be here asking questions n hoping you guys put up with me ^.^.

Michi
01-20-2005, 01:26 AM
I want to do Nakoruru from Capcom versus SNK 2

You might wanna know that Nakoruru originated from SNK's Samurai Shodown series (known as Samurai Spirits in Japan). She basically wears a different outfit in each game in the series, but if you're doing what she wore in CVS2 than that's her outfit from the very first Samurai Shodown game. ^_^

It's a pet peeve of mine when I see people list a character's series as "Capcom vs SNK" because... it just makes me sad that they didn't even do the research to see where their character even came from. x_x; Not that I'm putting you down or saying this is you! XD; I'm just.. saying. Haha. But I've already stopped you from being one of those people. *laughs!* I know you're new to all this so I'm not trying to pick on you; just trying to spread info. ^_~


hehe I'm sure I may be here asking questions n hoping you guys put up with me ^.^.

Don't worry. We need more cosplay questions in this thread anyway. XD

Hametsu no Kaze
01-20-2005, 03:14 AM
Michi,
thank you for letting me know ^.^ I do(did) know where Nakoruru came from, i haven't had a chance to play more than one samurai showdown game however and I can't remember which that was... but she wasn't in the same outfit at least. i used Capcom versus snk 2 for two reasons 1 thats the game i love to play her in (i'm sure i'd love to play her in samurai showdown too if i had played more than like twice on my boyfriends computer heh) and in my mind would be representing her from that(does that make sense?) 2 i really don't have straight in my head which samurai showdown costume was from which and I wasn't sure if any were exactly the same (there could always be a detail i missed... in fact i wasn't sure about the color blue, the length of the pants, and how the obi is in back), really I only know the samurai showdown games from reading about them online, sorries. i will have to try to track down some more games before I actually go as her... I do understand you wanting me to fully understand her character and background. I'm just glad I did know something at least because you're kind of imposing, I don't want to make the die-hard fans upset! i have also learned that I myself have a lot more fun if I have my costume accurate n know my character well. so i will try not to be one of those ppl.
okay, for first cosplay question ^^ nakoruru... i had trouble finding out how her tanto blade is attached, i can't tell if its a bow or if its just wrapped around it (err the obi is wrapped around i mean) from the capcom versus snk2 sprites because her hair is mostly covering it and i'm just getting that quick glance when she spins around. or i guess it could even be attached completely differently and there are just tails to her obi. in the other reference pictures I have i can see different ways it's attached but they either don't show the whole costume or its not the same costume (and none seem to have any tails coming from it... is it the sprites only?). now that I know I can also search for original samurai showdown for reference images that may help, i will have to go scour the internet now... but its hard becuase a lot of times there r just nakoruru pics n it doesnt say wat game t they r from. lastly, any other random tips on the costume/posing?

Michi
01-20-2005, 03:41 AM
Aww. >< I don't wanna be all intimidating just because of my obsession. :thumbsup: Don't worry! I absolutely love sharing knowledge of SNK with people. Spreading the love~~

Hmm... Nakoruru's blade may be attached in the same way Kasumi from DOA has hers attached. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=167870 ^^; I hate using my cosplay as an example but I have no screenshots. But I'm looking at her [Nakoruru] in the game right now and it looks like it may be that same idea, but with a tie around it to hold it in place instead of just a slot sorta thing. In this case you might just wanna go with what actually works to hold the blade in (I had a heck of a time keeping in my sword for Kasumi), rather than be completely accurate. Some sort of tie that holds it there should be fine, I'd think. I looked through what my artbooks cover of Samurai Shodown, and they never really show her back there either.

My scanner isn't available right now but when my digital camera has batteries again I can take photos of some original SS Nakoruru artwork for you. ^^ There's a few in one of my artbooks.

The fabric is pretty heavy, so while I can wip the skirt around, it dosen't do that long slow float down that his dose. All the 'blades' can piviot so they move with the movment of the skirt. B/c it's so full/ large I tend to hit people/ things unless I'm in a very large area, so that's kind of a downer.

As for Krizalid's hair, were useing his real hair (while I in the final will be wearing a wig) but Xsaumrizer0's hair is getting kind of loing, so when we put it up, it was very up.

Well, as it appears that I haven't commented at all in this thread -
The only SNK character that I've done so far is Shinnosuke Kagami (final boss of Last Blade) for Animagic 2003. Actually I did Rock Howard too I now remember...hehe
I've still been meaning to do Shizumaru (you wouldn't think it to be too hard for me to get going).
I've also been thinking about being Yuki but not sure how much recognition HE'LL get (battle colliseum).
And how could noone want to be Rasputin? it'd be a great excuse to wear giant foam hands (and feet if you're that way inclined).
I'd also probably like to make Gato too...

For the shoes, 2 pr 3 layers carboard on the bottom, and the straps can be made of colored duct tape. Just put 2 layers, adhesive side together and those will be your straps. You can make some holes in the the cardboard and then weave the straps through the holes.

^^;; Oh my. :3 So how about... What's everyone working on now? XD The big cons of the year are getting closer. I've finally started to finalize my costume list for the year.

I'll be wearing my '99 Athena for either THE last or one of the last times this weekend at Anime Overdose in San Francisco. I don't like it very much... I look bad with short purple hair. x_X I can't wait to use my LONG haired Athena wig for cosplay!! But I fixed a lot of the costume last year so I'm excited to wear it somewhat, since I wanna show off the new work. I also need to buy new stars for the headband and a belt buckle this week. >< I hope I have time. I also wanted to get new shoes, but they'd be expensive and I don't care enough about being perfectly accurate with this outfit. =/

Then my boyfriend has requested I do alternate blue Mai again... which I'm perfectly willing to do, but my original costume is dead so I have to make a new one. >_> No matter, I can work on making this one really nice and more accurate this time. :D

I also wanna wear my old Fatal Fury pink Mai again. ;_; It's my favorite and it's so different from the regular one. *_*

Otherwise... I think I'll be doing Yuri or Athena for Anime Expo this year. Haven't quite decided yet. <3 But there's still time. Right now I'm focusing on some Tecmo/DOA stuff too, haha, I'm such a bad SNK fangirl sometimes. *_*;;

Well if I decide to go to kamikazecon,I'll probably wear my Iori costume again or finish my Vanessa costume. I had put off finishing it for so long that I out grew the top I bought for it. Also plan on finishing my Ash costume and starting on my Kula costume sometime this year. So whichever con that I go to that is coming up when I finish them will be when I wear them.

For ACen I plan on taking King '99 and Max Impact Mai to that...*shudder*
(crossposting from IE) Planning:
-trashbag Mai
-A new swimsuit for King preferrably the black artbook one (to terrorize someone) and make it so my boobs don't snap straps off again ><
-Remake of King's red party dress since I'm not pregnant anymore and can bring it in nicely..also not be dyslexic and put the slit on the proper side this time!
-Second attempt at King's 2k3 jacket.
-And because this is from CvS2...Sakura for the baby...she outgrew the last one within a month --+
-Remake of King's AoF2 jacket...cause I altered it to be her '99 getup

I wouldn't mind attempting a MB Iori while my hair is still red. Course trying not to have it cut so it'll still be the right length will be hard since I won't wear the even my already done Iori costume if my hair not right or I don't have the right wig.

By the by, a little note of interest for any Adel, Mukai, Ash, Duolon, Shen Wu, and Malin players...the ps2 release of KoF2k3..go play as much of the team and single attack as you can, then go to gallery, there will be team ending videos, individual arts and concept sketches that you can zoom in on. Ash's is particularly lovely because it shows closeups of each nail art that he has.

This is why I want that new KOF 10th Anniversary artbook and the newer releases. X3 I'm not entirely interested in the new characters that much, but I love having all of the art and references to help out. ><

That's neat that they actually added that for us on the English release. o_o; I'll have that game soon enough...

I haven't had the time to find the timer XD I'm planning on getting a tripod SOMEDAY x.x And you and me -have- to do pictures together if I can make it to AX (or hell, I'll attempt Otakon if it ends up being cheaper)..hopefully Wells Fargo will lay off trying to molest me in the most uncomfortable ways so I CAN go :/

I sorta kinda rambled over the idea of womens team and/or art of fighting/kyokugen in the AX thread when I should've done it here. :X But omg Otakon is perfect since I'm doing Yuri there. MUST get Yuri and King pics~!! I'll even bring some version of Mai and we can take pics outside of the main CVS/KOF shoot. ^^~~ Find someone to throw into my Yuri or something for womens team. :P

YES and InitialDiesal told me he should have Robert done for then so we may get the full team. Oh..Michi hon..getcherbuttonaim!

But yeah, AX was going to run me over $200 for plane ticket, $70 for con badge and food, then about $100 for hotel. Otakon = $69 each way, $70 for con badge and food and I might have roomings at a friend's house or something like that soooo yeah..it helps :/

Hi guys. I've decided that I wanna cosplay as K' (original KOF version) for Otakon, and I've got a few questions:

-Where can I get some of those belts that go up his right arm, or would I have to take regular belts and cut them down to size?

-How can I go about making the glove on his right hand (the flame-resistent one)?

-Does anyone know of any good wig stores online where I could find a white or silver wig? I can style it myself, it's just that finding the perfect one might present a challenge.

Any help would be apppreciated =)

cactusmomma

It would probably be more time saavy to trim regular black belts down (or make your own- 1 long strap + buckles), not sure on the glove..and wig? Beat up Kakashi's :P http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=73575&item=5966322495&rd=1

I always thought of using a regular black glove and covering it in pieces of red electrical tape. But I dunno how well that'd actually work. :rolleyes: S'worth a try? :thumbsup:


-Does anyone know of any good wig stores online where I could find a white or silver wig? I can style it myself, it's just that finding the perfect one might present a challenge.

Short white wigs aren't that hard to find, especially if you're gonna style it yourself to make it closer to K Dash's hair.

Something like the BW-300 in Cosplay.com's wig shop maybe...? Blah, but it doesn't come in white. =/

cactusmomma
04-17-2005, 01:31 AM
I'd say just make it. It's a pain to try and find one that matches her's already done, plus if you make it then you can fit it to yourself as needed.

You could use an existing sports bra as a base so that it fits right, and then cover it in the red. That may end up too bulky though, so maybe just use it as a pattern... I dunno. :X The Blue Mary I wanna do someday has more of a bikini top on so I haven't really thought about it. XD

I mean bulky as the sports bra itself will look too thick. ^^; And yes, Mary is actually one of the top 3 or so biggest busts in KOF (and no Mai is not in that top 3).

cactusmomma
04-17-2005, 10:13 PM
Yup, those honors go to Shermie, Vice and Mature AFAIK. Mai's just gonna be sagging by MOTW :(

Michi
04-18-2005, 12:26 AM
Sagging? She's tiny! It's just the anime versions that make her unnecessarily huge.. and well, the new artists. But Shinkirou and the original FF artist always made her normal. It made me happy. :D *hugs artbooks* She just doesn't have a bra on so she goes BOUNCE... and they want fan service, so hey~

With the new characters, Shermie and Angel tie for the largest bust. Then Vice is second, and Blue Mary and Mature tie for third. ^^ Mai's updated measurements make her #4 now, but back basically before SNK stopped making the games she'd be down at #6. Stupid Playmore. x_X It's just an inch bigger, but I can't believe they seriously updated her measurements.

*has lists* :D *is a geek* Note that Vanessa, Diana, May Lee, and Whip keep their measurements secret... So who knows where they'd rank. XD

[edit] Oh yeah, almost forgot. Mai's old measurement is from KOF '98. Her new one is from the KOF 10th site (and KOF 2003 site). Then randomly, they give her an even bigger bust measurement on the NGBC page (putting her at #3, above Mary and Mature). MAKE UP YOUR MINDS, PLAYMORE. *misses the old SNK*

cactusmomma
04-18-2005, 01:22 AM
I thought Mai was a D o.O She just never takes her support group(bra) with her.

Michi
04-18-2005, 12:35 PM
Her KOF 10th measurement is 34 inches. What cup that is, I don't know. Honestly, in the actual game art pre-2001, she doesn't look bigger than a B or C. Yeah she bounces all over the place in the games, but that's fanservice. This of course makes me feel good cosplaying her, because my actual measurement is bigger than that. :P

In some of my artbooks that have really old Fatal Fury 2 art, she's even more covered up and normal looking. It was Mary having only a tube top thing on that looked more risque in FF3, especially when Mai had more on that year (like a shirt that went all the way around, a vest, and a skirt with a slit!). XD

All of this talk about Mai Bust could do damage to a poor guys >:) actual looking at my statue of Mai her bust looks pretty large i'd say D maybe even DD so i'll go with that

Michi
04-18-2005, 06:03 PM
But that's a statue. x_X She has never looked big when her actual character designer drew her, before SNK became SNK Playmore, so I prefer to go with that. =/ I know she's not real, but in real life you could NOT have real size D-DD boobs that were that big and bouncy. For the sake of the fact that KOF is actually pretty realistic (no weird hair colors unless the story calls for it, and any magic looking stuff is explained) I'd say the biggest she could be is a C. @_o; Bleh.

DivineSage
04-20-2005, 12:22 AM
Yeah, she really isn't that big. It's the fact that she doesn't wear a bra and the... bounciness... that makes her look big. I'd say B, C at biggest.

Michi
04-20-2005, 11:55 AM
Thank you. XD I'm glad to not be alone in my spazzy SNK fan-ness. I wish I had my artbooks with me but they're in Canada... 'cause every art of Mai has her normal sized, up until SNK became SNKPlaymore and got new artists. =/ The original ones cared to make her normal. ;.;!

Hey! I haven't posted in an SNK cosplay thread in awhile so I figured I'd ask a question.. I wanna try to redo part of my Xiangfei from KOF for Otakon, the only thing is that the last time I wore it my hair was longer and I didn't have the huge bells until now.
Any ideas on how to use extensions and get the bells to attach?(My hair is a bit shorter than when I last wore this costume at Katsucon 04) I've never used hair extensions before and wasn't sure if this should have gone to the wig section or the cosplay section..

Michi
04-21-2005, 01:16 PM
kerochan ~ Since your question is more general than a specific SNK costume question, you may get more answers in the Wig/Hair section. I did Xiangfei too, but just with my real hair. I had just thought I wouldn't wear it anymore after I cut my hair. :thumbsup:


Haha, did some comparisons (on myself mind you) and websites...Mai and the majority of the girls are about mid-B cup, while Shermie and Angel have mid-D. Anything different is fanservice and damnations from the sprite artists!

I told you. Haha. Mai just gets the attention because she was the original fanservice character of SNK. But then comes Shermie and Angel with their big boobies that would make Mai blush. Shermie's also portrayed as a big girl, not a stick like say Kula, so she's probably got up to a D cup. @_o; Mai's aren't big enough around to be that big.
