There isn't a Devil May Cry thread yet?

Blasphemy!

Well DMC4 is coming up really fast and I can't be the only one oogling over its new costumes now can I? Heck, I am still oogling over all the costumes from the other games! Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else out there has made/is making/plans on making something from DMC and wants to talk about it.

Right now I am working on Lady from DMC4, Dante Alternate from DMC 3, the Kalina Ann, and Nevan (http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=90902&member=86580) (the guitar, not the woman)

Anyone else working on anything?

Currently i'm working on Dante's jacket from DMC1, and then after Yaoi-con i'll be attacking Trish's new outfit from DMC4 @_@ the designs on her top and pants scare the crap outta me D=

*raises hand* I got an award from the directors of the anime for my Dante costume. Custom variation combining DMC1 and 4's designs. Gonn'a be rebuilding and doing a straight DMC1/Anime version soon enough. I could do without Dante's cowboy boot covers in DMC4...but the rest of the outfit...*drools in anticipation of building costume.* That's not mentioning when I get Rebellion, Force Edge, and Sparda(Sword, not Demon Daddy) build.

ooh fiberglass. I love fiberglass (well, except for the dust, smell, and stickiness U_U)

So I started my DMC 4 Lady cosplay today... and all I have to say is that this fake leather stuff is bitch, especially when dealing with it in multiple layers -_-.

For over a year I've been planning out DMC3 Vergil but progress is a bit slow right now. I'm taking my time to hand embroider the coat, vest, and boots but I aim to have it done for early 2008.

I'm planning to do the new outfit of Lady aswell! :)
After making her first costume, Lady is a character I've really grown attached to.

I hope there will be some pictures of her back soon.. XD
I can't.. or let's say, I don't want to start unless I have seen the whole thing. o_O I need to know EVERYTHING! ^^

And her boots will be extremely difficult to find. o_O

Yeah, I was a bit concerned about that when I started mine, but I figured I could start working on her pouches and belt in the mean time... by the time I finish them the game will probably already be released @_@

Ugh, and don't even remind me about those boots T_T

Hmm,you know what a great alternative to embroidery is? Appliqués. I used them for the butterfly pattern on my RE4 Ada dress and they really turned out looking great.

Seriously? I mean, I'm always wary of the things (not that I know why) but if I could somehow manage to find ones I could use...

I have a weird habit of incorporating bits and pieces of whatever strikes my fancy into my normal wardrobe, AND making it work. I'd be a lot more inclined to putting together Vergil's coat if I didn't have to worry about how long the embroidery took and/or messing up months of work... appliques. Hmmm...

Yeah, that's probably the best idea. Everytime I go out shoppng I try to keep my eyes open at least for the obvious parts, like her gloves or her sunglasses or the perfect belts.

What material do you use for the pouches?
Are you going to take some work-in-progress pics? Ö.Ö

Sorry..
Hmm...... maybe there is a way to alter some boots that look at least a little similar. It would be a hella lot of work though to get them exactly like hers. o_O

I made my own actually. You can buy the glue stuff (I really have no idea what it is called) in bolts, iron it to your fabric, cut out the proper shape, and then iron it on again to the coat. It's really really cool, I love appliques soo much. I would fray-check the edges though, because some materials fray so much it makes the process reeealy annoying V_V.

I'm using this fake leather stuff to make them, which actually is turning out a lot better than I thought it would O_O. I am making the basic shape out of quilting pads and then covering them with the material so they are a bit more stiff. I have only finished the back part so far (so there are no actual *pouches* yet), but when I have finished on I will definitely post progress pics!

I made a Vergil costume, and I sort of embroidered- well, used a regular sewing machine and set the stitches to what you'd do if you were sewing on appliques.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v678/vashnic/IMG_0279.jpg

You can get thick to thinner lines by gradually changing the stitch width as you sew. It was a bit of a pain, especially with the satin material I had for his coat, but it only took a couple nights of work.

I've been planning to do a Trish cosplay since the original DMC came out. I actually had the whole costume assembled at one point, but never got to wear it to a con: I was using the leather bustier for a video shoot, and the zipper separated in the back... -_-; Fortunately, the cameras weren't running then!

At some point, probably late next year, my sister and I are planning on making a set of Trish (DMC) and Devil Trigger Trish (DMC2), who has luminescent purple lightning bolts floating around her. ^_^ But I have to get back in shape first...

Judging from the screenshots and trailers, that's exactly what it is. Since all of Dante's animations are lifted straight from DMC3, they probably just redesigned the Beowulf guantlets and grieves to give the illusion of it being something entirely new.

Ah damn, I remember ranting on and on to my bf on the release date when I picked up DMC3 and first spotted Vergil in the opening, with me yelping "I'm gonna cosplay him once in my life!" XD;;

My poor bf eventually broke down and said he'll one day either make me his jacket or buy it in order to make me shut up about the will to properly cosplay him once I'm a bit more professional with my crafts. :D

I think the best bit would be finding a good Dante to roam around with and 'brotherly bicker' at all day. *cackles*

Got to say, when it comes to coats, the boy's sure know how to pick'em. ;)

Gilgamesh seems to throw off sparks (from the metal parts?) so maybe it's meant to mimic a welding mask (but he's too good for eye protection XD )? The piece on his back I'm still not sure about.. either way I dub this "Hannibal Dante" - careful, he bites!!

The Gilgamesh mask reminds me of those rival ninja guys from Mortal Kombat. Or one of those pocket mask filter things.

It's good to know the ladies of Devil May Cry are back in their oh so voluptuous and sexy selves XP (whatever happened to old Lucia? >___>;;) Simply put, the designs are great and i do like Dante in his cowboy-esque Gilgamesh Greaves.

Awww no one doing Nero and Kyrie? Based on the newest trailers that I've seen, Kyrie just seems to the perfect human sacrifice or some sort (just like Dante's mother in a way) 0.0 which is sad..... because I thought she'd be like some sort of Songstress who can calm the demons or something .____." (if she does die, it'll be so tragic)

I'm not pretty enough to cosplay DMC characters XD but I do know of a friend who's really good! And he's doing Dante (well DMC 3 version anyway in this upcoming end of year event we have here in Singapore) Let's hope the Devil May Cry series gets more <3 that it should.

Devil Trigger Dante, via the DMC2 version.

Now the trouble is finding good reference shots and getting a good wig to rip up in the white vash-ish hairstyle he gets when Dante goes DT in DMC2. And the horrid nightmare making all the props and prosthetics is going to be...anyone got good shots of DMC2 DT Dante, and advice? This one is probably gonn'a get done around the same time I get the Sparda Sword built.
So far, I have a good idea of the skin work, at least, so I hope with the photoshopped "Demo".

It's good to know the ladies of Devil May Cry are back in their oh so voluptuous and sexy selves XP (whatever happened to old Lucia? >___>;;)

Two reasons Lucia is not in DMC4:

1) As has been previously mentioned, the game takes place chronologically between 1 and 2, so Lucia has not been introduced yet. This is probably done in part to preserve the "leave-you-hanging" element at the end of DMC2, where Dante may or may not have died. (Of course, I have my OWN idea about what should have happened at the end of DMC2... I even wrote my own alternate ending, like fanfic, because I was so annoyed with the game's ending. My version had Trish in it, among other things. ^_^)

2) If the general DMC fan base has the same opinion of Lucia as my friends and I had, they might be afraid of the street riots that will happen if Lucia is brought back. ^_^ The other day, I commented to a friend that Capcom should release a DMC-based fighting game, just so I could watch Trish kick the snot out of Lucia...

Trish hurls a motorcycle at Dante's head. That's pretty cool. Lady shoots Dante in the face -- twice -- and defies the laws of physics to break her fall with a rocket launcher. That's also pretty nifty. Lucia, though... Lucia just has a bad pseudo-French accent. :p

Honestly not too fond of the cowboy theme they're doing with Dante in DMC4...he's supposed to be a heavy-metal style, not a country boy. I could do without those cowboy boot covers...and yes, they are boot covers, not actual boots...

I'm of the same opinion; Dante never struck me as the country-western type. Of the four main Dante designs we've seen so far, I think I like the costume from DMC2 best. (Of course, Vergil from DMC3 has Dante beat on all fashion counts...) :D

I got the impression it was a decorative end to the chaps not attached to the boots at all (not even as a cover).

I don't mind Dante with a touch of cowboy as long as he not wearing a stupid hat, starts developing a southern accent, or has quotes like " I'm gonna round me up some demons".

Archelon
10-02-2007, 04:04 PM
The real reason DMC4 takes place before DMC2 (and why Lucia is not in DMC4) is so Capcom can implicitly deny DMC2 ever existed without ever explicitly stating it so as not to upset any fans of that game.

Link_Harkanian
10-02-2007, 04:40 PM
*nods*nods* They told the anime directors to avoid any reference to DMC2 even. And that's from the mouth of the directors at a Q&A and Nan Desu Kan 2007.



I'm of the same opinion; Dante never struck me as the country-western type. Of the four main Dante designs we've seen so far, I think I like the costume from DMC2 best.

Personally like DMC3 version of DMC1 myself. It has the most defined look to him, and he looks like he's paying a tribute to his lost brother and his father. DMC2's coat never really sat right with me, though save the boot pieces in 4, I like the outfit.

Never underestimate the power of cosmetics for making your facial features look TOTALLY different. Makeup can make round faces look skeletal, and vice-versa.

Currently figuring out the design of the Blue Rose. I thought of using Amethyst Angel's tutorial on Squall's gunblade to make the handle the "roulette". As for the twin barrels, pvc pipes maybe? O: Covered over with a material (not too sure what yet) to carve the designs onto.

10-10-2007, 08:15 PM

That, I believe 8D But Gloria's rather on the extreme side, i reckon.

Link_Harkanian
10-10-2007, 08:21 PM
Actually, I was referreing to being impaled through the leg an dthen jumping up to stand on said leg with not a single problem. There is the fact that a lot of the Order's top people, including the prriest, were actually demons...plus Gloria is obviously the result of some kind of experiemnt.

Back on costume topic. Anyone else besides me gonn'a go for making a DMC4 Dante?

Demosthenes
10-10-2007, 08:54 PM
I like Dante's buttons. They have this ninja star-esque feel to them. And his coat looks more streamlined and slick, an update to his wardrobe due to him being more mature I suppose?

Link_Harkanian
10-10-2007, 09:49 PM
Or going along the lines of the wild-west style that he seems to have in this game. I honestly, as said before, could do without the pants mounted boot covers, but other than that, I am so building the costume, and probably need a Nero for when I get it done so some photo battle fun can be had.

10-10-2007, 09:58 PM

What weapons would you be building? The Rebellion and Ebony and Ivory? Or Gilgamesh? >D

On a side note: Is it possible to build Nero's arm? I have no idea on how i should get started for it :I

Link_Harkanian
10-10-2007, 10:15 PM
Nero's arm CAN be built, it just requires a lot of careful work. I've already been working on design myself, since the same techniques would be probably be applied to my Devil Form Dante. For the palm, you would want to use some kind of bright blue material, since it seems now to glow in the newest trailer. My suggestion would be to mount a system of EL or LED lights through the palm material, with latex or something similarly flexible for the bulk of the arm...possibly thermoforms, which is basically hotglue. Flexible, durable, and perfect for that kind of "plating". There's a tutorial at bioweapons.com, http://www.bioweapons.com/ThermoForm.htm. Basic info for making thermoform armor.

As for weapons...definitely Rebellion, Force Edge, and I'm planning for Sparda, and the guns. Possible Gilgy in some form. But I'm sticking mostly with the core gear.

Demosthenes
10-10-2007, 10:26 PM
Thank you lots. That'll be invaluable help.

Yeah i was thinking of LED lights too for the palm and the racks between his arm. The problem is though, I'm no technician/electrician? Hence I have no experience with working with electronics and wiring and stuff....

But i guess it won't hurt to try it out either, and try as much as possible to find out beforehand how it's done.

Kyrie needs more love, there's people on the DMC fan boards that seem to want her to die by the end of DMC4. Just because she doesn't run around wearing hot pants and an open shirt doesn't mean she's not a good character! *head!Desk*

Can I say I love? XD sorry, that's a tad creepy, but you speek much truth. She has such a pretty singing voice @.@ I need to find a way to get that song she's singing (like I said before) It would be awsome to be able to sing it for people. :bashful: and maybe i could find a nero to drag around!!

Shouts : "KYYYYRRRIIIEEEEEE" *anguished look*

8D Okay, so I was being melodramatic. *smirks* But anyhow, I still think Kyrie is very much an important and central character in the game. If she dies.... well if I'm Nero, I'll very much like to wring Agnus's Neck =_=

On a side note: Yippee! I've found a nice replacement to get the lights on Nero's arm. http://www.thatscoolwire.com/ They are just perfect, to be moulded upon the Devil Bringer arm. Which leaves the Palm area of the Devil Bringer.

Currently I'm confused :confused: Are the glowing areas of the Devil Bringer on the outer part of the arm Red or Blue? Because I read somewhere that the game directors changed the color but I'm not sure from which to which.

Sure as hell would be looking forward to your Kyrie. 8D I tried dragging my female-friend of mine into doing Kyrie but apparently she has other plans O.O oh well.

Off topic but : Ironically, we (as in our school choir) Just sang a song entitled, "Kyrie" and apparently Kyrie meant "God". So does that mean that there is more to Kyrie (as in the character) then we think? Possible....

The glowing areas are blue. They were originally...red, I believe, but it got changed to blue since blue stands out more against the orange of the bulk of the arm.

As as a note, contrary to what most people say, his coat is PURPLE, not blue. It's a deep purple, I have done color comparisons. Vergil wears blue, Dante red, and Nero wears a red vest, blue pants, and a deep purple coat. Which is part of the reason for a theory I have on why Nero looks the way he does, and for the Devil Bringer, since only one other character wears purple in DMC; Sparda himself.


And with all the DMC4age going around, it sucks we're probably not all in the same area for a con. Getting this little groupe together would be awesome.

Here's the deal with Nero. he is an orphan, who looks like the Sparda boys, is taken in by an Order dedicated to Sparda, with plans to resurrect Sparda, has developed a demon arm, and wears teh colors of the SParda brother AND the color that only Sparda himself wore. Most signs point to that Nero is SParda himself reborn as a human.

on the subject of boots, Kyrie's have a zipper up the side, so it looks like I get to get thrift short hunting for a pair I can modify. Also thank fully it looked like the dress wont be to hard to walk in, the sides at left open fromt he knees down, o that's what I can tell any ways.

On a more random note I keep watching this trailer, and in the church, Nero is sitting there with a pair of head phones around his neck or that's what they look like, I have no idea why but it REALLY amuses me.

While that's certainly a possibility, I think the most prevalent theory is that Nero's arm was possessed by the spirit of Vergil. Hence why Nero hears "Give me more power!" in his head once his arm changed. Also, several of Nero's taunts are the same as Vergil's from DMC3.

10-14-2007, 06:21 PM
Nero doesn't act power hungry though, he's more driven by duty and obligation, as well as his love for Kyrie. And the whispering voice from the arm aspect may have been dropped, since there has not been one mention of it since that original trailer. It's moer like the Devil Bringer's power is actually Nero's power.

Demosthenes
10-14-2007, 07:23 PM
The Arm probably have a mind of its own '___' It IS power hungry, but it's kept under control by Nero because he has the willpower to dominate it, for the moment anyway.

Didn't Kobayashi said that Vergil won't debut in DMC 4? Though I don't trust him >___>;;

By the way, did anyone noticed, when Nero was screaming and hitting the floor, the floor resembled strangely like the scene in DMC 3 in the Demonic Tower where they were opening the seal?

Nero doesn't appear to be a religious person. XD Since he skipped the sermon and listened to his earphones instead.

I had a thought about Nero's arm but I not sure if it would work...

While it technically wouldn't "light" up, what if the base layer was made from reflective fabric (have seen it in blue) so that when the light hits it, like a camera flash, it would look glowing.

Demosthenes
10-18-2007, 07:28 PM
Yeap~ Those two materials that could make his arm glow would be either reflective tape or El Wire.
Now how to mould it to the arm, I have no idea just yet O.O

I pmed A19Riku (she did the sword for Lightning in FF13) and she gave me a quick rundown and tutorial on how to make it using Foamboard. It'll consists of around 6-7 layers and the more intricate details would be moulded out of Sculpey. Well that's the plan anyway.

Link_Harkanian
10-19-2007, 05:32 PM
With the bulky flesh of Nero's arm, the best methods may be to make molds and use thermoforms, ie hot glue. I posted a link to the tutorial on bioweapons.com, since he built his most recent guyver armor from the material, and it comes out really good looking, and it's really durable, not to mention cost effective materials. It's what I'm gonn'a probably use for the bulky parts of my Devil Trigger costume, and when I build a Devil bringer myself.

Neat-o! Looking forward to the final version. Are you going to put a gloss finish on the guitar, or leave it matte?

Oh, and re: hair dye... I'd recommend a wig if he's going for Dante. With most hair, it's almost impossible to bleach to true white; the best you can do is platinum blonde with a purple rinse, which tends to fry hair follicles to brittle, uncooperative shreds (and often comes out the wrong color anyway).

I've been pondering this for a bit, and forgive me for just lurking (I posted waaaay back in the thread but never kept up with it. @_@ Silly me!) but I was wondering,

Does anyone have any suggestions on fabric for Virgil's coat (pleeease no velvet. It looks tacky! :-/ ) and his vest/pants?

What I've noticed about the pants is they appear to have scales- like snake skin but I highly doubt they are made of snake skin- so is there a way to give this appearance?
I'm trying to go for as accurate as possible so I plan to spend a lot of time on this costume to pull off the best Virgil cosplay I can. :D

Also, the vest appears to be, well, 'ribbed'. It looks a lot like a rib cage with a zipper down the front.
Suggestions?

As for the coat- double sided! A turquoise/sea blue color with gold trim on the inside. I honestly think the inside looks like it's silk, or some sort of similar material. (But silk it's self is expensive!)
The coat it's self...I have no idea! Leather? But blue? So could some other material be used?

The outside of Vergil's coat is most likely satin. That's what I used, anyways. High-res:

Yes, near as consensus can tell, he has snakeskin pants. ;) Or at least some form of subtly patterned leather. Vest looks like (thicker) leather as well. I made mine out of upholstery vinyl- I was in a rush, so I just used one layer and merely sewed the pattern onto the front, but were I to do it over again, I'd make two layers and sandwich some padding shaped like those 'ribs' between them to get the right look.

Ah, now see that picture is a touch different...He has patterns on the inside as well, apparently.
Thank you for the image!

Looks more...ah...what would you call it...
Not like bright orange but a sort of autumn orange on the inside.
Oh- maybe I'm missing it in your pics (or maybe I'm looking at it wrong) but the little ruffle for his collar, is that attached to the vest?
I'm looking at my other reference pics and it seems like it's maybe buttoned onto the inside of this pop up collar on the vest or it's like one of the 'neck ruffles' I have somewhere which buttons around the neck.

Actually let me dig it up and throw on the right shirt and I'll try to show ya :D

The boots! Gah the boots are gonna be fun to try and find. >_<;

Edit:
Okay, apparently my camera hates anything that is black in color. :-/ So no collar pictures but! :D At least I can start building my little 'reference model' now.

Fairly sure that he's wearing some sort of cravat-

It's an old-fashioned necktie.

Rather than satin for the coat, I would suggest a more matte-finish fabric, maybe a taffeta or something similar. You want it to catch the light and have that inner glow, but you DON'T want it to reflect shiny in flash photos. Take a digital camera to the fabric store with you and test the fabric to see how shiny it looks under flash.

If you don't want to deal with leather or vinyl for the pants, you can find some very nice snakeskin or crocodile textured fabric in the "suede look" section of JoAnn or other fabric stores. It won't be as shiny, but it will have a visible pattern and texture.

Vergil is wearing a cravat, but it looks like the English kind that ties over the top -- not quite like the wedding picture that vasher linked to, although it's similar. You can fake this by tying a standard necktie knot in a silk scarf and not tucking it through the loop in front.

Hmm. I never realized it before, but Vergil's boots look *just like* that one character from Mysteriously Vanishing Star... ^_^

Howdy DMC thread!

Just wanted to stop by and say Hi. I am beginning work on a DMC4 Dante. I have cosplay DMC3 dante before...and with his new western flair in dmc4 I just couldnt pass it up. (I'm from Texas originally...do have a soft spot for western things <.<)

So anyways, just stopping in to say Hi. And if any other Dante cosplayers wanna know how to get their natural hair white/silverish let me know, as I've perfected the technique required to do such a thing. As seen in this picture here.

http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/1546/dantevergilmm4.jpg
((Was initially like a solid snow white color, but a nice grey/silver toner i got my hands on added a silver flair to it.))

Anyways...if anyone wants to discuss anything let me know, always willing to help out.

I plan on having this costume finished by Anime Expo next year.

Well, I am making mine out of PVC pipe, which is pretty cheap and easily cut with a saw. To get the basic shape, I am going to use a very long, wide piece of PVC and attaching a 90-degree pvc elbow joint on the end with all of the boxes. To achieve that thicker part in the middle, I am either going to get a 180 elbow (which I am not sure exists), put it in a wider piece of PVC, or just bulk it up with something (although this option isn't desirable). For the boxy parts, I am just gonna use foam for the shape, fiberglass them, and epoxy them on. For the handle part, I am just going to stick a thin piece of PVC in the side and wrap it in belts or something... not sure yet. The knife part, once again, will be fiberglassed foam haha (I have a thing for fiberglass haha XD)

Well I hope that was somewhat helpful =D. It should be pretty light, although it won't be a feather. It will also be seperable so that it complies with all of those lovely con weapon regulations =\ (God I hate them... they make weapon making miserable sometimes). I want to make one soon-ish (maybe over Christmas break) so if it would help you out, I could take some pictures as I do it and make a tutorial or something =D.

AAAAH ;_; it seemed everyone had made progress in their DMC cosplays.

I'm still pathetically stuck at making Nero's sword. Basic outline of the shape of the sword done and got my PVC pipes for handle and holding the blade (lol) I was thinking of getting an actual bicycle handle for the sword....mmmm if only I can saw off the handle of my aunt's bicycle >D....

On a side note: Hey! I have my longest break yet, waiting for my O level results to come out and then applying for the college of my choice, so I still got lotsa time to fiddle about with Nero (I hope)

Alright, a DMC thread. >D

I'm new to the site, fairly new to cosplay, and I'm hoping to to a DMC 3 Dante costume. I'm not quite sure how I'll manage the whole coat thing. o_o I'll either have to widen the brown strap and bind or bind and cover that with gauze and a bit of fake blood and go with the beat up Dante look.

I'll be ordering the fabric once I figure out how much I need. I can already hear my wallet screaming in pain. ;_;

12-06-2007, 06:18 PM
Hi, Soot, and welcome! :)

For the DMC 3 costume, you could bind using the open-shirt method (look up the binding thread in the Crossplay forum) and use double-sided dancers' tape to hold the front of the coat in place. Or, if you don't feel comfortable with open-shirt binding, you could cover the binding with foundation or flesh-colored fabric and run the strap over it.

I couldn't find any toy guns similar to Ebony & Ivory, so I just bought the cheapest I found, took them apart and only used the trigger as a base.

Before you buy the Airsoft guns, double-check the security regs for the con(s) you're going to attend. A lot of cons prohibit weapons made or modified from any kind of projectile guns, including pellet guns and water guns. Even if it's a modified or nonfunctional Airsoft, it may not be allowed at some cons.

You could try carving the basic gun from insulation foam, and if necessary adding plastic or wood pieces to finish it. Foam is a LOT easier to work with than wood, if you don't have much experience carving, and it's also easier to fix if you mess up. ^_^ (I made my Riza rifle (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=1007566) from foam and bits of scavenged junk. It came out pretty well for a first attempt.)

Another source to check for advice would be the Trigun and Hellsing threads, as Ebony and Ivory are not dissimilar to the signature guns of Vash and Alucard. ^_^

Thanks. I'll have to go check around the forums of the cons I attend as well as the ones for those other series. Your gun looks pretty cool.

Also, I've never sewn with leather/pleather before. Would any alternative fabric look worse for Dante (any version)? Or do I have to tackle pleather? Any advice for a first-timer sewing pleather before I ruin a bunch of it and waste all my money?

Heya guys, stumbled across this thread and remembered that after May i'm going to be working on a Vergil cosplay, my original intention being DMC3 version, anyone got any good screens at all of a DMC4 version, if there even are any yet. The official sites are covered in this new guy and Dante so i'm a bit stuck. I assume that Vergil will still have white hair and probably just a better rendered blue coat so should be ok. So yea, future plans are to get this coat, gonna buy it off of the internet from either ebay or cosplaymagic, simply for the fact that me and fabric making, doesn't mix. I will break my machines most likely. Hehe, so yea, thought i'd join the thread :D :D

Something to remember about Yamato is that it was passed to Vergil from SPARDA, and the first time we saw it was for the Sparda mode in DMC1. Plus, the demon aura looks nothing like Nero Angelo, and the producers had said repeatedly "Vergil is not in the game". And no, he didn't die in DMC1, he just lost his mind and vanished. Notice that every other demon breaks apart when they died, but Nero Angelo used an overdose of his teleport.

There are a zillion and one places to get it -- just drop "EL wire" or "electroluminescent wire" into Google -- but I bought my last batch from extremeglow.com (http://extremeglow.com/) (horrible website, but the prices aren't too bad). You can also find EL tape, which is flat, and sheets of EL plastic, which can be cut and shaped into different forms. It's fun stuff. ^_^

True but once it was given to Vergil he kept it with him right to the very end of DMC3 leaving only force edge behind. Besides an unlockable "Sparda" mode for Dante it wasn't important in DMC1 while DMC2 didn't have it at all . It was also never mentioned that Yamato had any summon abilities or can open gates of some sort so it would be interesting to see how this puzzle fits. I'd also like to know how and when Dante ended up with it, I guess that was the item that was stolen from him towards the beginning of the game? AAAHHH unanswered questions!!!!

Exactly what I was going to say. A simple sprite swap doesn't have anything to do with the plot.

As for Vergil not being in the game, as I said he might not be in the game, but he could still be important. We might never see him, but he could still indirectly play a part (because of his sword or something else).



As for cosplay, I'm still trying to decide what to do about material for Dante's coat. I've never worked with leather/pleather before. Is it necessary for Dante? Would anything else look good, or should I get some scraps of pleather and practice? I don't want to spend a bunch of money for pleather only to mess it up or break my machine, but at the same time I guess I'll never learn if I never try.

Well the official japanese website said that the blue demonic figure which surrounded Nero was in fact his "devil trigger" which is weird because......ain't Nero human? And from the newest trailer, it appeared that Nero seemed to have been experimented by Agnus because he was forcibly restrained with swords plunged into both his arms and Agnus sword was plunged into his stomach (ouch.... >,<)

I have a feeling Nero might lose his mind :/ Maybe the stress of losing Kyrie and a demon possesing him might get to him. Poor Nero.

Progress on Nero has really been slow too @____@ at this rate he might debut only in 09 or something. Pah.

Still trying to get my hands on that casting product to make Nero's arm, though no sellers are interested in helping me get my hands on it. >:

Wasn't there a trailer where Dante and Nero made some exchange like "you're not human, are you?" "neither are you..."? I don't remember. lol. But he could turn into a demon after he gets experimented on or something. I don't know, I'm just making stuff up now I guess.

You can find vinyl or pleather pretty cheap if you shop around, but DEFINITELY do some research on your sewing machine model before committing to make anything with it. Most average household sewing machines aren't meant to stitch through heavy-duty materials like leather. Unless you have a powerful machine that is designed to handle layers of denim, canvas or leather, you'll want to stick to lighter-weight fabrics or really thin pleather (you can get it in various thicknesses, just like vinyl).

I don't think Dante's coat necessarily has to be in a leather-type material to look good. (Personally, I'd rather see it done in a good matte fabric than in cheap, shiny vinyl.) Take a camera to the fabric store and see how the various fabrics photograph under flash. Maybe you can find something that looks kind of leathery, but isn't. Moleskin is one of my favorites -- it's easy to work with, has a gorgeous texture under camera, and is regularly on sale at JoAnn for $5/yd. :D

You can find vinyl or pleather pretty cheap if you shop around, but DEFINITELY do some research on your sewing machine model before committing to make anything with it. Most average household sewing machines aren't meant to stitch through heavy-duty materials like leather. Unless you have a powerful machine that is designed to handle layers of denim, canvas or leather, you'll want to stick to lighter-weight fabrics or really thin pleather (you can get it in various thicknesses, just like vinyl).

For anyone who would like to get a jumpstart on cosplaying Dante's Devil Trigger from DMC4, I found some screencaps of it from the latest trailer. It looks like Kazuma Kaneko's work, which is... unfortunate. Oh well, at least it's better than the awful DT designs from DMC3.

Actually, it looks more like a fusion of some aspects of DMC3's DT with DMC2's devil form, which most people actually liked. I for one am glad they brought ithe DMC2 Devil Trigger back and updated it, since that's the one I was building my DT costume around.

I'm considering doing either Nero or DMC1 Dante this year. Problem is, prior to this, my only cosplay experience is a mediocre Squall and Speed Racer. ;p
Dante's outfit looks.. annoying to make, for my lack of sewing skills, let alone sewing leather. I've always wanted to cosplay him though, since playing the first Devil May Cry in 2001. Nero looks easier as a WHOLE, but his vest terrifies me. Like, at least his coat is cloth, so aside from adding the emblem to his outer shoulders, and the leather around the breast, it seems relatively easy. But the way his vest/hoodie is made in strips of red leather, with perfect cross stitching.. that'll take a lot of effort. And his WEAPONS! The devil arm, his revolver and sword. I may be tackling more than I can handle, but I'm really going to try my best. If I can't have it completed by AX this year, at least I'll have a decent start for next year.

I figured I might as well jump on the bandwagon before this topic gets to 50+ pages (Curse you Trinity Blood...).

I'll be cosplaying Vergil from DMC3 eventually... As soon as I can settle on a material... O_o

I've looked at a variety of silks (since Vergil is spiffy like that and I don't want another vinyl costume for a while >.<) and I'm caught among a red/blue fire shot silk (It's made of both red and blue threads, so it looks either color depending on the angle), a bright turquoise, and a dark blue.

The red/blue because it's just too cool and the whole red Vergil thing in DMC3 just tickled me, the turquoise would match the CG render, and the Dark blue would match more in-game and the manga look (not to mention I love the dark blue/silver/gold color scheme)

Darn you Vergil :P

First off: YAY A (POTENTIAL) NERO COSPLAYER! 8D

I'm doing Nero too and I'm definitely wanting to do the Arm, revolver and sword also. Check the previous pages of this thread. Link_Harkanian kindly linked a site which has tutorials of making tight fitting bio-armour, you might want to check it out. Lights for his glowig demon hand would be done using LED lights.

And yes the vest scares me also (admittedly) But for mine, I'm using a base vest and sewing the strips of the cloth on it (so it looks like the vest is just comprised of strips of cloth but it actually isn't. Still in the process of making it though.

If I'm not mistaken, I also linked the symbols used by the order of the sword which is present on Nero's clothes in the back pages of the thread. So there goes the reference pics for those parts too.

Well least we dont have to sweat over Nero's pants. They're pretty basic and simple, though the boots do need some modifying of buckles and bootcovers too.

Hope that helps XD Nero needs more love.

01-08-2008, 12:02 PM
Eventually I'll be working on the Devil Bringer arm for my own Nero, so once that gets underway, I'll throw out the basics of how it's going. As to the vest, I think you're idea works for a goo basics start, Demo, probably what I'll be using, though do remember that the hood of his outfit is attached to the vest and not the coat.

Hey, if all works out right, we might end up running into each other at a con and have the Dante vs Nero showdown. ^^

Spooky: DMC1 Dante's coat actually, after the DMC3 revision, looks to be a canvas type due to the texture and flow mechanics. Using a cloth or canvas type fabric would be better for the first one or two tries, it's what I did with my coat and vest. DMC1 Dante is actually easier than Nero would be, since not much of the outfit would be leather, and there's not a lot of complicated design. The vest is rather simple, you can modify it from a basic vest pattern.

Phantom: I say go with the dark blue from the game, it's considered the more official coloring as opposed to the first CG Render. All other renders use the dark blue instead of turquoise as all.

Hmm. You are right about the DMC3 rendition of the original outfit looking less shiny. It might be cloth after all. Thanks!

Jerk of a brother!!! Stop stealing my poor Yamato!

Anywho, dark blue it is! Next question if you don't mind...!
Speaking of Yamato, I bought a lovely katana with the white saya wrap for Vergil, but since that happened, the main con that I go to banned any sort of prop metal katana, even if the pieces are zip tied together (which they've allowed in the past).

I don't mind doing detail work (painting and minor sanding) and I can wrap the saya myself, but has anyone seen a wooden/plastic katana replica that's actually in the right proportion? (Bokkens are way too thick and plastic toy ones are... really silly looking...)
Otherwise I'll have to check out Featherweight's tutorial, I suppose.

Thermo-form two halves of a real katana and scabbard in perspex, then glue them together? That's what I'm doing - since in New Zealand they won't even allow wooden weapons into cons.

It's mimicking the lightning bolt cut-out from the first costume, so it's a transparent mesh inset. The fabric in the inset has a visible vertical grain, as well, so if you didn't want to use transparent material, you could get by with a flesh-tone fabric with narrow black lines on it.

The black line down the center is actually a zipper, so you may want to take that into your design considerations -- the fabric you use for the inset needs to be able to take stress and hold strong stitching (i.e., pantyhose would NOT be a good idea here!). Rather than vinyl, which will stretch and reflect shiny in photos, you might want to use some heavy-duty dance material or some other strong matte fabric. I would suggest fitting the leather and inset exactly to your figure, using non-stretchy material, but add some heavy-duty Lycra or Spandex fabric in sections along the sides or back of the bustier to allow for breathing room. If you look at most commercial zip-up bustiers (such as those sold at Wilson's Leather, etc.), they will have leather on the front, and elastic panels on the sides or back to hold the bustier in place.

Are you going to have plastic or steel boning in the bodice? That will also affect the structural stability and rigidity of the bustier. Also, how are you planning on reinforcing the edges of the lightning bolt shape?

We're planning a DMC1 Trish for sometime in the future, so I'll be interested to see how yours progresses! :)

KittyCatChi
01-31-2008, 10:13 PM
I'm only able to get plastic boning from JoAnns, but I think i'll be making another trip there to get something sturdy for the inset part and just go with something fleshtone (especially since my dad's going to the con i'm bringing this to so the less awkward the better lol). I haven't actually made a full-on bodice/corset for myself before(worked on some at my costume shop but just basic ones) so i'm trying to get as much info as possible before I start and do some test ones too so I don't blow it on what fabric I have for Trish @_@ i'm glad I saw the new video though since it showed that she had it laced up in the back. For the edges of the lightning bolt I think i'll just cut some shorter pieces of boning and sew them along it, and then have full long ones as close as possible.

I was going to do embroidery on at least her pants but now seeing how much more detailed it is than I thought from the older screens i've changed my mind O_o I'm hoping fabric paint works on black vinyl since sharpies sure as hell don't >.<

For Nero's gun... Kya! You bought the happy clicky Vash gun! But I agree, probably not the best for Nero. Most accurately, I'd suggest tracking down a Single Action Army 1:1 replica (they run about $50-60). Those things are 11-13 long and aren't too terribly hard to modify. I had to track down a pair for my (still in progress) Ocelot cosplay from MGS3, but upon a little testing I discovered they're too bloody big for me. (I'm tiny) But for Nero's gun, I think it'd be the perfect base.

I have the high-rez renders and have several very high-grade videos, the coat is more consistently purple in steady lighting. He's wearing the colors of Dante(red vest), Vergil(blue pants), and Sparda(purple coat), after all. It's a deeper purple than Sparda's but after all the color comparisons I've done, it's much closer to purple than to blue. To each their own though, and I admit, dark blue for the costume coat is better than black.

Pants and Vest; pleather or leather, if you can afford it. Wit the coat, it's hard to tell, since wit the high-res renders, it has an odd cross-weave texture to it, implicating something like canvas. as to a pattern...that's the trouble with some of these costumes. there typically is no pattern other than the artwork and CG renders.

I can guarantee that fabric paint will peel off of vinyl. (I use fabric paint to make my prosthetic skin appliqués precisely because it DOES peel off so easily.) Embroidery or stitching of some kind would be the best for her costume, but if you're worried about the complexity, maybe you could just simplify the design so it gives the right impression, but doesn't take you 8,000 hours to embroider?

There is also vinyl paint, but I'm not sure how reliable it would be on something that has to flex that much, nor do I know how easy it is to do detail with... :(

Just looking at the first picture of Nero I can find on a Google Image search (I don't have the costume details memorized like some people here)... ^_^ You might try McCall's 4154 for his coat. It's out of print, sadly (though you can find it online), but it is the BEST commercial cosplay pattern ever. We've modified that base pattern into probably ten completely different costume pieces, from Ed Elric's red coat to the Count's jacket from Gankutsuou.

Nero has some weird seams in his coat, but that one at least should give you the right basic shape to work from.

There is also vinyl paint, but I'm not sure how reliable it would be on something that has to flex that much, nor do I know how easy it is to do detail with... :(

I tested a couple of days ago and it does work, but it's not store bought fabric paint. What I did was mix various acrylic paints(silver and gray) with textile medium. I tried scratching and stretching the test fabric like crazy and the paint won't peel at all =) i'm going to try and start painting the pants tonight so hopefully i'll have some progress pics up soon. Stupid Capcom was being sneaky in her design D= if you look at her spoiler video she has a lightning bolt zipper underneath her armguard, and I think I barely saw two more on her boots in her full body shot T___T when they said they could add more detail to the outfits now they weren't kidding :eeek:

Oh, that's a good idea! Let us know how it holds up to con wear, if you wouldn't mind. I paint a lot of shoes and boots for costumes, so I'm always looking for new methods. :)

I saw the lightning bolt zipper tab on the front of her bustier, but I didn't know they were on her boots as well! Yay for little details that drive cosplayers crazy. ^_^

This is the best place that I know of. Start with the two Vergil shots at the top in the wallpapers =) and there's screensnaps galore lol the cosplay gallery is pretty huge too if you want to see what other Vergil cosplayers have done ^.^ even try the forums if you need extra help for pictures.

AVAAntares: will do =3 i've checked the paint as often as I can and it's still going strong, I think i'm more worried about the pants I made ripping during our skit at this point :crylaugh:

I got the special edition for PS3 but I don't have a PS3...yet. Watched and looked at all of the extra stuff though and I have to say it was disappointing other than getting the anime...the artbook is more like a little story book with screensnaps that everyone has already seen from the game:mad:

PC version's slated to be released in April D8, which is a rather long way to go. I'll probably get the PC version. No PS3 or Xbox 360 for me too $___$ And woe my parents; they don't support my gaming habits so even though I am able to get a console, I'll have to answer to my parents @.@


And wow so many Nero cosplayers jumping into the bandwagon. Surprisingly DMC isn't that big here in my country, and judging from the local cosplaying scene here, no one has plans to make Nero.

I'm taking my time to get down every itty bitty detail of Nero searching for high-rez scans and watching the spoiler trailers. Admittedly there is more to Nero than I thought there would be @____@

On the good side, I managed to coerce a friend to do DMC 4 Dante Version! So I can have a Dante to have a brawl with. Hur hur hur.

Hey everyone, just stoppin in to give a slight update on my DMC4 Dante.

I have already acquired the pants, chaps, gloves, and under shirt. I am currently working on the coat as well as the straps and buckles. (Having a professional friend aide as much as possible with the coat.) Still lookin around for some boots, wanted to try and find some with the little bit of stitching on them, but no luck. Still workin out how to get the other boot accessory (either buy or make, not having much luck on those) Other than those things it's comming along nicely.

Now prop-wise, I'm going for 2 different props. I've decided to pass on Ebony and Ivory, just don't feel like making them before Anime Expo (If I have time...then maybe I will, but as of now, it's a no) So my main two props/weapons will be Rebellion (of course) and I'm going to attempt Pandora.

For Rebellion, I'm making a new one cause I hate my old one. This time I'd like to use some kinda actual metal for it, so I'll look into it. (The Main reason I want metal is that during my travels I have come across one of the most amazing magnets, it's about 3x3 inches and is rather strong. My plan was to attatch that to the shirt underneath the coat, and it would allow the sword to "stick" to my back, just like it seems to do in the game)

And then, if I have time, I'm going to attempt to make Pandora (briefcase form) I know it won't be too hard to really make, but I wanted to make it special. My plan was to put little strips of LED lights in it, that would sorta "pulse" like the lighting on the actual box does. This is still up in the air, and I'll work with some LEDs for a bit and see if it'll work out, I'm hoping it will because it'd be an amazing prop, and hell, I could use it as an actual briefcase to carry my stuff around in XD

So yeah, that's about it at the moment. Good luck to all you other cosplayers!

OK, I have never posted in this thread, but I think I could help you out about the "real" colors of the materials of your favourite characters...
Since I work with 3D and 2D as well, I did a personal research for the people who wants to cosplay Nero, and are interested in his coat...

First the fabric.
From the hi-res renders looks exactly like denim...
And this was quite easy...

Now the color...
I THINK that the original idea of the artists was to have a sort of blu-ish off-black, but when you look at the renders, you can see that the coat looks: blue, dark blue, purple, navy, black, etc... This happens because the lights in the game affects the look of the texture.
There is also a big difference between the promo renders and the "in-game" models. The textures used in the promo renders/artworks are really hi-res textures, probably based on photos of the actual fabric, while the textures used in the game have a lower resolution, and they are mostly hand-painted (to simulate shadows, lights, seams, etc... Things that the hi-res artwork don't need to simulate, thanks to hi-poly models, better rendering engines, etc...).
Now.
Taking into consideration these things I did some test on 3DS Studio Max, using a simple model of a sphere, and a generic fabric "bump" texture (used just to simulate the fibers of the fabric), and this was the result...
http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/4900/nerocoatcoloroj2.jpg
In conclusion I think that in the artworks, the coat of Nero is an off-black with a little bit of periwinkle in it!
While the coat in the game is more of a dark navy blue, still with some periwinkle in the mix...

Artwork "possible" color:
http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/9633/ll652600x600thumbtl2.gif

In-game "possible" color (and great fabric for the coat overall):
http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/9453/ee643600x600thumbrj8.gif
This fabric is a two-color denim, navy blue on the outside and dark red on the inside (useful if you want to have a lightweight flowy coat without adding a lining), and even if the "inner" color is a little off, it could work...

I hope this helps:toothy:

Shawn: Dude, you will be one BUFFED out Dante, judging from your pics. Which will help you with a full metal Rebellion, since we know that's gonn'a be heavy. No Con will let you carry it around though. Unless you mean a metal plate in the rebellion for the magnet, which is an idea I've also been working with.

George; get us a listing of where to get that material, and I will heart you forever. Denim or canvas is EXACTLY what I look into for DMC1 Dante and Nero's coats, since for Dante, his only leather ones are DMC3 and 4, DMC2 was a leather vest section while the rest was some kind of corderoi(sp?) or velvet. I still see a predominant purple color, and since his pants are blue, and the vest/hoodie is red, having the coat as purple thematically makes sense for someone connected to the spardas. Oh, and welcome to the thread. May you visit and help more in the future. ^^

Shawnzy
02-09-2008, 05:01 AM
Heh, I can't promise I'll be as buffed as in those pictures, I've been out of commision for a while, and have only just recently recovered from some surgery. I plan on trying to keep myself in the best condition I can for it, but I'm not allowed to go all out for some time so it will have some effects. It won't be too bad, buff or not it's hard to really tell with the layers Dante wears. As long as the forearms are rather thick it should be good lol.

As for the sword, I've decided against full metal, as looking at con rules, isn't allowed, so I will toy with putting a metal plate inside the blade or so. It will be nice for some added weight too.

Just got the artbook from the game and now I'm totally unable to decide on which I want to cosplay. >__< On one hand, I've been a Dante fan since the first game came out. But on the other hand, Nero's pretty cool too.. And the designer in me thinks the denim/canvas trench coat would be bitchin'. Plus his shirt is awesome.

They would both be about even in difficulty level, but it's so hard to choose. :lost:

I've looked high and low, and the best I could find was shirting fabric and flannel, and neither would be suited for her outfit. Perhaps it'll be available somewhere (Joann's maybe) when the winter fabrics are put away and the spring ones come out. If you find fabric that would work for her outfit, please, please, lemme know. I'll love you forever. If all else fails, Ill just cosplay her outfit from 3.

I'll probably just 'glass the very points and blade edge of the other side to save on weight. Or workout more. Hmm. Doesn't seem like six pounds would be so much, but torque is a mighty force.

Well, Dante is actually NOT supposed to be uber buff. His demon blood does all the talking there, not his body mass. Besides...I thought I was your Dante for NDK! ...Vergil, you F***ing traitor!

Sorry, had to do that. =P

Shawnzy
02-14-2008, 05:58 AM
While Dante isnt uber buff, he still has quite a bit of muscle mass. In DMC3 he didn't have too much (He is considered a more Bishie looking Dante), but it's actually rather clear in DMC4 that he does. His shoulders and chest are broader and it's more apparent when you look at his forearms. He has some very thick forearms. So while not being buffed out like some kinda body builder, he is certainly built more like a power lifter in my opinion.

Of course, it's hard to tell since he's covered up all the time in this recent installment.

I actually like his stubble, and I like it even more that it's dark. A) Makes it easier for me to cosplay him, since mine comes in the same. And B) I like the slight contrast it gives. For me I've always liked the look of white hair with darker eyebrows and the stubble falls into the same deal with me.

The stubble isn't really that noticeable either unless you keep an eye out for it either. Plus it fits in with the cowboy look he's got going in 4. Plus having that light/dark contrast, like Shawnzy said, is nice, that way you can see it.

Will paint work on the patent leather/pleather boots? I've seen some boots that are the right style, but not the right color. I know I'm gonna have to paint the boots to get them right, but I figured that the material wouldn't be paint-able for the boots on cosplay- I don't want the paint to flake

I'm not sure. My boots are leather and painting them worked surprisingly well. I don't know if it's going to flake in the future. I guess I have to wait and see. Maybe you just wanna give it a try?

What kind of paint did you use on the boots, if you don't mind me asking? your boots came out perfectly, I really really like them :):love:

Haha.. thanks! XD And no.. I don't mind at all. ^_^
I used plain old common acrylic paint.. :toothy:

I finished up Trish last month. I'm considering cosplaying Lady in the future (DMC4, DMC3). Her real name is very close to mine too. I might cosplay DMC4 Dante one day, I ordered a bunch of separating zipper(s) a while back and kept Dante in mind and I have magazine references. Or I might leave that one to the men out there.

Besides...I thought I was your Dante for NDK! ...Vergil, you F***ing traitor!

Sorry, had to do that. =P

EEEK! *hides behind random furniture*
And... er... From the looks of it, NDK's a no-go for me. I'll track you down eventually though, I swear!

I think I finally found a suitable silk, too... Sapphire blue with a black cross thread so it's irridescent. ^___^ Can't wait for the swatch to arrive!!! I'm now working on the stencil for the silver pattern since I tested the embroidery and I'm 99% sure it won't work. (It'd be near impossible to line up everything perfectly and one mistake on silk... you're done)

Any suggestions for a wig, by the way? I'm going for the hair down look (I'll give the back a little fwoosh, but nothing dramatic) like Dante's. Slicked back hair looks truly terrible on me.

I know a good wig. There's either the scruffy on cosworx, or there's the Argent Cute from periwig, I can get that for you cheap.

I was actually just looking at the Argent wig. *points to wig in my avatar* Same seller. :)

Is that the one that you used?

I vote for the Scruffy or the Angela 750 (so versatile <3), if you want store wigs. :) Might want to check that the Scruffy can be parted to the side, though, because I heard that it was not a skin top (?). Some of those ebay ones look awesome, though.
