View Full Version : The unseen Soul Calibur Cosplay *oohhhahhhhh*

ok...so i recently brought Soul Calibur III and besides the fact that it is an amazing game...i noticed that some of the characters have different designs...probably old costume designs that ended up not being used..but they are still equally beautiful like the originals..

so...is it okay to cosplay as them??...even if it is not their original costume??

You can cosplay anything you want and any variation there of. I know there's a lot of concept art in the gallery in SCIII, if you see something in there you like I'd definitely cosplay it.

I second that. It has really cool art, and they are still the characters.
Besides, tons of people cosplay the Amano art for Final Fantasy. I generally think its cool in that its more original.

yea..i def. think that...it would be more original....
but sometimes there are some boobs and idiots at cons who criticize your cosplay because its not what the character usually wears....grrrr

Concept art cosplay is love!

A lot of concept art costumes for a lot of video games look better than what the developers decided on. Soul Calibur is a prime example of that. I love Talim's concept art outfit WAY more than the actual game outfit.

Mmm, yummy delicious concept art.

Go for it. If someone comes up an insults you because it doesn't look exactly like the character's in game outfit simply tell them that you weren't even cosplaying that and they can stand there and look like an ass.

hehe...sounds like a plan Technolicious XD

i think people should really start cosplaying more as concept art/ non-original designs...they look so much better (makes me wonder why they didn't chose those designs in the first place...lol)

Go for it!! These costumes are *gorgeous* (now I'm wondering why they didn't use them, lol). I figure that there's always going to be tools and losers at cons who make rude comments, so you should do what makes YOU happy. Show up at a con wearing any of those and I am sure you will turn heads!

Thanks for posting these by the way (I haven't yet bought Soul Calibur III but that's about to change ;D). Yeesh, I'm not even done with my cosplay for AN08 and I was already toying with the idea of going as Ivy for AN09 and now I feel like I positively NEED to be Ivy - those outfits are pure magic on a stick.

I say, totally go for it. The version of Nagase I'm doing, I'm not even 100% positive if it's concept or actually in the game.
