Anyone besides me plan or have done any Suidoken II/III outfits...?

I always seem to pick the normal named characters from this series...

These r the two I plan to do... Fred (http://www.rpgamer.com/games/suiko/suik3/art/gs3-029.jpg) & Jack (http://www.rpgamer.com/games/suiko/suik3/art/gs3-033.jpg)... I might do Yuber... Not sure yet... Also Hugo...

Yup, I'm doing Aila's alternate outfit for AWA and her original one for MTAC(possibly)....I might do some others for AWA next year, though, I haven't decided which ones >_<

I've done Ayame for AX this year, and I have a friend who did Watari. Suikoden is addicting...^^

I would love to see your costumes when you're done, hooray for Suikoden Cosplayers~ ^_^

Friend and I have cosplayed together as Viktor and Flik, and McDohl and Gremio. (Though I didn't have the wig for Gremio, so he had dark hair. Bleh.) She wants to cosplay Chris sometime, and one of the projects I want to do next is Leknaat, just to take advantage of the long dark hair. Seen from the back, I do look like her (http://www.kekkai.org/andrea/photos/me/webcammish/030120-01.jpg)...

My most recent foray into Suikoden cosplay was Yuber from Suikoden III. (Yes, this is my hair! XD)

Yuber, with close-up of the eyes, old unexact King Crimson (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=30543&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1)

Yuber and Luc, new accurate King Crimson (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=59180&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1)

I've also done Seed from II (with armor) and am currently remaking the plate mail and the Highland banner for Otakon. I finally have good reference for the Beast Rune on the banner, so I'm making the formal version this time around, with matching bannerstaff.

Seed version 1 (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=4321&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=5)

Seed version 1 (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=4319&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=5)

I'm also planning a costume from I, so I can have all the games covered. ^_^ They are my favorite RPG series after all!

[Edit: I corrected the thread name, it's "Suikoden" not "Suidoken".]

My first cosplay ever was The Flame Champion from Suikoden III. First worn at AX 2003. My second will be Jowy from II, which I plan to wear at Otakon and BAAF. I have a group of friends here in Brooklyn who are very much into Suikoden. They are cosplaying as Window from I and Riou(hero) from II for BAAF.

Me and Flexei have done two Suikoden 3 cosplays:

Emily (http://rogueandflexei.com:8900/cosplay/emily/melemily2.jpg)
Sanae Y. (http://rogueandflexei.com:8900/cosplay/sanae_y/trubsanae_y4.jpg)

Luc (http://rogueandflexei.com:8900/cosplay/luc/trubluc4.jpg)
Sarah & Luc (http://rogueandflexei.com:8900/cosplay/sarah/sarahluc8.jpg)

I LOVE our Luc and Sarah costumes. :D

I have done Jillia for a couple years off and on, my boyfriend has done Rowd, this year I'll be bringing Jillia and Sierra to Otakon, and he will be bringing Rowd and Nash (from SuikoGaiden) XD I have a few friends that will be attending as Nanami and Zaj, and perhaps a few more coming as Camus and Miklotov. ^^

I've recently started playing Suikoden III and I already want to cosplay some of the characters. *Laughs* I like Chris' outfit, but it's armour! *Noooo* I also like the outfits that Yumi and Yun are wearing. Now I'm caught deciding whether do cosplay Miyuki from Xenosaga or a Suikoden chara for one of my three outfits planned for AX'04. ^_^* (The game has awesome character design!)

*laughs* Yes, Odin, it is very tempting to cosplay one of the Suikoden III chara's. But~, I'm also a huge Xenosaga/Xenogears fan, and I must cosplay a Xeno person everytime I go to a con. (Bascially, once a year, since Anime Expo will be the only convention I will attend every year...unless I have time to go to another CA con.) Gosh darn though, I'm really loving S3 so much right now, I just might cosplay Yumi (she has a crossbow, yay~!) if there is a S3 group for AX04. ^_~ It'll be hard though, if my friends want to cosplay Xenosaga again, because they'll probably want me to be in the group. Oh, so hard to decide... ^_^*

I went as Riou and Futch from Suikoden II to Anime North. Now I plan on going as either Caesar, Hugo, Flame Champion, Emily, Edge or Thomas to Anime North 2004.

Beatrix
07-30-2003, 04:29 PM
I might be going to Anime North this year as someone from Suikoden III, but I'm not quite sure yet . . . If I do go from Suiko it'd be either Sasarai, Landis, Lilly or Nash.

Oh I love Suikoden II, but I can't pick just one character, I love so many of them. Every time I play the game I have an entirly different goup i play with.

MPsy
07-30-2003, 06:34 PM
Wow I haven't played Suikoden in ages but all my friends are bugging me to go as the Hero from the first Suikoden. They keep telling me I look just like him. But I don't see it myself.

As I said I haven't played the games in AGES. But if I do cosplay as a character from one of the Suikodens I wanna cosplay as one of the drunk guys (forgot who was the worse drunk from the Suikoden games *shame*).

I'm currently making a Culgan costume for Otakon. ^^

I've made a McDohl costume too. (Costumes in my gallery, I'm too lazy to link)

Zeruda
07-30-2003, 09:31 PM
I've been obsessed with the series for a good long time, but I have only too recently acctually got my hands on a game e_e. I cosplayed as the Suikogaiden version Futch at metrocon :)

Catpaw
07-30-2003, 11:14 PM
I might be someone from Suikoden or something.... (Next Ai-Kon maybe?)

Andrea
07-31-2003, 12:59 AM
Heh, you know, MPsy... according to the detectives in 2 and 3, there's girls in those two games that can outdrink any of the guys. ;) So if you were going to be the biggest drunk in Suikoden, there would be some crossplay involved...

MPsy
07-31-2003, 01:27 AM
Really? Hmmm...I only played 1 and 2. The only one that I actually owned was part one. My friend let me barrow part 2 but I only really got to play it for a little bit.

He told me that in part 2 or 3 there was a some kinda drunken master type character. Is that true? Or some guy who looks very 'shaggy' who carrys around a bottle or hooch.

Andrea
07-31-2003, 06:32 PM
There are characters kind of like that in 2 and 3, yes... It's suspected that they're some kind of joke, because both of them you meet while they're flat on their face and you need to pay their tab to have them join, and then at the end of the game when it tells what they did, they supposedly went off on a journey seeking "revenge". Never tells what they're avenging, even. ;) Probably it's some Japanese culture thing or traditional story reference that I just don't get, being a stupid gaijin.

The one from 2, Rikimaru, would be pretty easy to cosplay, I think... just make a blue samurai robe and you're halfway there. The one from 3, well, he goes around without a shirt and has a massive tattoo on his back, so that might be slightly more complicated...

Me, I'll stick with the hard-drinking shaggy mercs. *snuggles Viktor, refrains from snuggling Geddoe because he probably wouldn't care anyway*

MPsy
07-31-2003, 07:21 PM
Wah!!! I wanna cosplay Rikimaru, but my hair is going to be way too short to do him right. Plus he fits me so well!

Rikimaru is swordsman who loves to eat. His main motivation for everything is that he's going to have a hot, filling meal for him when he gets home. He actually only joins the hero because he bought him a decent meal.

Thats pretty much me, I'm willing to fight if I get treated to a decent meal!

Andrea
08-01-2003, 07:35 PM
A decent meal at a con? Pssh, right. ;)

I bought the fabric for a Millie costume now all I have to do it make it.. x-x

I saw the cutest Millie at AX this year though, she even had Bonaparte! There was also a spot on PERFECT Nash there. She had brown hair and shinai instead of swords, but the costume itself was unbelievable. She did all the underlayers like they are dissected in the art book. I glomped her every time I saw her.

i havent played the first one.. i didnt really get too far in the second one.. but i finally played the 3rd one and i really liked it. i was wondering if the 2nd one is like the 3rd one. i really like the 3rd one and im planning on making a Geddoe costume probably by next AX. i really like his character

Andrea

The second one is more like the first one than the third one, but they do all have some commonalities.

For the fast-approaching Anime Iowa, I hope to do a Suikoden 3 cosplay with one of my friends. I've already completed my Lady Chris (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=43400&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1) ensemble and his Geddoe costume. (http://amethyst-angel.com/geddoefront2.jpg) (Unfortunately it looks as if my friend is cooling on the whole "con" thing and is trying to get out of going. Gah! Well, if we don't make it to AI, then I should definitely make it to AnimeDetour. Which will take place in MN next March....

...so faaaar into the future.... *sigh*. Oh well. At least it should be cold enough then to wear full-body armor-and-vinyl without dying of heat stroke...)


Oh, if you're going to AWA, keep on the lookout for version 2 of my Lady Chris armor which I made for someone who has SAID they'll wear it --and get pictures taken of it-- there. (They'd damn well better...)


Oh, and does anyone have pictures of the guy who wore the Borus Armor (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=40951&password=&sort=1&cat=500&page=1) I made to AX? I'm having a devil of a time trying to find any. (I heard he hadn't been able to finish the skirt for it in time. *Sigh.* If I'd a-known he was having such trouble with it, I probably would've helped..)

Yes, cosplay as Geddoe for AX'04...that way I have an excuse to cosplay as Yumi! :p Yeah, Geddoe is really cool...I like so many characters in the game, so it's really hard to decide who is my favourite.
Amethyst Angel...I absolutely love the costumes you made. How in the world did you make the armour? *Amazed*

Amethyst Angel
08-03-2003, 02:31 PM
I absolutely love the costumes you made. How in the world did you make the armour? *Amazed*

I wrote an article detailing the process:

http://amethyst-angel.com/armormaking.html

(I just added a section yesterday which describes how I made my Zelda shoulder armor. )

The materials are pretty cheap and the process is relatively easy but it takes a lot of time to do. (My Lady Chris armor took me about 50 hours.) But it's fun to do, once you get into the swing of it.

Kirschwasser
08-04-2003, 10:11 AM
O_o *Amazed once again* Whoa, that's so awesome. (Yep, I clicked on the link.) I would have never guessed it was made out of that stuff. I'm really impressed. ^_^

Amethyst Angel
08-04-2003, 04:00 PM
Thanks.

Oh, and I finally got the boots for the Geddoe outfit done:


http://amethyst-angel.com/gboots.jpg

I had to cut the fabric from an existing pair of boots and sew a vinyl and fabric covering over them. (That's much harder to do than making the darn things out of armor would've been...)

Kirschwasser
08-07-2003, 10:26 AM
Oooo, great Geddoe boots. ^_^
I'm looking at Yumi's outfit now and figuring out which materials to use for it. I believe the boots will be the hardest, because where oh where would I find boots that look (similiar) to hers? Or how to make the designs on her outfit? Hmmm, perhaps the crossbow will be the hardest thing.
I also like Viki's outfit (the adult Viki). I've always wanted to cosplay as somebody with a staff. ^_^
Has anybody ever cosplayed as Fred? I really like that character. *fu fu* Maybe I can convince my boyfriend to cosplay as him. ^_~

Kirschwasser
08-11-2003, 03:14 PM
Okay, this is kind of on-topic...in GenSui3, there are the three main chara stories, right? Well, I noticed there are three others. Thomas is one of them, but who are the other two and how do you get to those stories?

Catpaw
08-11-2003, 03:24 PM
I said I was gonna do Fred & Jack... Hm... I'm not sure about the other three.... (I haven't even gotten to play the game.... blah, me have no PS2...)

Recca-kun
08-11-2003, 03:24 PM
Talk to Koroku (the dog) in chapter four to take him for a walk (fifth flame, although I heard there was supposed to be a Sasarai POV...?). The sixth flame appears if you get all the characters available to you, i.e. when you talk to Kidd for scouting reports at the end of chapter 5 he either has no one left or just more dogs.

Kirschwasser
08-11-2003, 03:37 PM
Ahhhh! That's one of the people I didn't get was that dog! (Besides that, I was missing three others...I bet it was those three kids in Vinay Del Zexay. Oh wait...I was missing another...some guy that will appear when "the castle is decorated". Well, it never worked! :p
Oh yes...do any of you know if there is an artbook to the game. I always see lots of GS2, but I've never seen GS3 artbooks. I want the one that has all the characters in it, that way I can have reference for fan art. :)

Nietsche
08-11-2003, 03:38 PM
I'm working on Fred still!!
His seamless armour is a pain since I can't really use Amethystangel's method....

I wanna get working on Chaco too after Fred is done!

Amethyst Angel

Have you tried http://www.electriqueboutique.com/ ? They might have something...

As for Fred, I suppose the hardest part would be making that eagle. Yowza.

Kirschwasser
08-13-2003, 10:03 AM
Hmmm, I looked on that site. They didn't have the boots similiar to hers, but I'll keep checking up on it once a month to see if anything new comes in. Plus, I have soooo much time before next AX, I can keep looking on e-Bay and such. ( Hopefully I'll have some luck! ;) ) And I highly doubt that AX will let me bring in a real crossbow, so I'll have to look for a prop or something of the sort. :D

Amethyst Angel
08-15-2003, 02:35 AM
I should think a crossbow would be easy to make out of balsa wood (not to mention easier to carry around with you.) Look around. A craft store in your area probably carries the stuff...


Oh, and the Geddoe wig I ordered from Midnight Belladonna (http://amethyst-angel.com/geddoewig.jpg) arrived in the mail today.


Yowza.... It's soooo......spiky....

Kirschwasser
08-15-2003, 12:00 PM
Hmmm, I'll have to see. First things first, I'll look on E-bay to see if I find anything similar to Yumi's weapon.
Yeah, the wig is a bit spiky, but it can be tamed. Ugh, trimming and cutting wigs is a pain...especially cutting in bangs (the wig I used for Chii was such a pain). Wow, whoever is going to cosplay in the Geddoe costume you're making is going to look so awesome!

sakura yuna
08-16-2003, 03:14 AM
er...don't know if this counts..although maybe...I've cosplayed as Tir Mcdohl from Suikoden 1 and he is I think a side character you can get in Suikoden II. but anyways....that is the only suikoden character I have done so far...hopefully more in my future of cosplaying....

Aoshi Shinomori
08-17-2003, 02:10 PM
to get the final flame u dont need to get all the dogs.. just all the characters.. have fun finding them and i wont tell u who the final flame is.. its a secret heh and wow that geddoe outfit is cool. i wonder who that lucky guy will be to be wearing it

Amethyst Angel
08-17-2003, 04:24 PM
its a secret heh and wow that geddoe outfit is cool. i wonder who that lucky guy will be to be wearing it

Well, it's not the guy I originally intended for the costume. He bowed out of our con group. I managed to talk another of my friends into wearing the outfit, (although he has no idea who the character is or what he's like. But since all Geddoe really does is stand around looking all world-weary and emotionless, I don't expect his character will be all that hard for a non-fan to recreate.)

I finally managed to tame the Geddoe wig down so that it looks just like the character's hair. (And all it took was 30 gallons of hair spray...) Still, I can't complain. It was a helluva lot easier to style than my Lady Chris wig (with that damn wedding-cake hairstyle and all. Blarg...)

So, are there any other Suikoden 3 cosplayers headed to Anime Iowa? Would be nice if our group could get a Hugo. (Might be the only time all three S3 title characters get cosplayed in the same place at the same time...)

Wouldn't that be nice?...

Kirschwasser
08-19-2003, 02:16 PM
That is good that you got the wig to look like Geddoe's hair. ^_^ So styling a wig to look like Chris' hair was hard? I'm not sure how she has her hair exactly (in the back). Well, what I mean is...how does she keep it up anyway? ^_~
I'm not sure what material to use when I make Yumi's outfit. No matter how long I look at the pictures of her, I can't figure out what it's made out of. :p I'll just find out whenever I go to the fabric store in the future, and go, "Ooo, that looks like it would be good to use for the costume." *Shrugs*
Off-topic: I'm officially in school (college). Aaaahhh! Where did the summer go?

Amethyst Angel
08-26-2003, 09:38 PM
Yo! I finally got some pictures of me in my Lady Chris costume and have 'em posted in my Cosplay.com Gallery (http://images.cosplay.com/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=1255)

(I've got pictures of my friend Jared as Geddoe, too, which I'll post as soon as I can...)

I'd say it turned out better than I thought it would (and YES, it WAS really hot to wear...)

Kirschwasser
08-27-2003, 10:07 AM
*Is speechless for a moment* Oh my God...that is so amazing! I am impressed beyond belief. *Smiles* I even commented on one of your pictures in your gallery. Your Chris costume is so perfect...you even look like the character! ^_~ You're the best!!! *Laughs merrily*

Wow, that inspires me to do my best when I work on my Yumi costume!

I also look foward to seeing the pictures of the Geddoe costume. It should be awesome!

Jowy
08-28-2003, 09:05 PM
I just started my 3rd Suikoden costume, which I hope will be done for Nekocon. It is the version of Jowy from the latest card stories set. You can check it out here- http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=32674

Kirschwasser
08-29-2003, 10:06 AM
That'll be a cool costume, Jowy. ^_^ Hmmm, I never played Suikoden II. It's very hard to find. I've seen it on e-Bay, but my God, the bids go up so high...I've never seen the game sell less than $70!!! I don't think I'll ever play that game if I can't find it for a decent price. -_-;


Edit: Okay, this is slightly on topic. While I was on this Suikoden site, I noticed there are people with the same names in Suikoden II as there are in SIII: Yuber, Viki, Tuta, Star Dragon Sword, Sasarai, Lucia, Luca, Lilly, Apple, Futch, and Jeanne. Are these people in SuiII the same folks in SuiIII? Oh yes, and does Nash really have a "missus?"

Odin
09-01-2003, 08:32 PM
Yes, those are the same people in III as II. Apple, Futch, and Viki are also in Suikoden I . . . there are other characters that are in all three Suiko games, but I'd have to look up everyone else (though you can definitely find them at www.suikosource.com).

-Odin

Andrea
09-01-2003, 08:37 PM
About Nash having a "missus"... Konami's not saying. In one of their recent publications, they addressed the question, but didn't say anything definitive - they gave a bunch of possibilities for who it could be, then pointed out that with his past, it may be that he's just saying that to throw people off. (Nash starred in the two Suikogaiden games, in case you weren't aware, so he's got a big history in the Suikoden universe.)

And heck, some of the characters are in all three games! Heh heh... pity Viktor wasn't one of them. (/Viktor fangirl)

Kirschwasser
09-01-2003, 09:40 PM
Thanks for the info, Odin and Andrea! ^_~ *Hee hee* It's interesting to see the characters from SuiIII looking so young in SuiII (I am assuming II takes place 15 years before III).
Hmmm, so Nash could be lying. I thought that if Nash does have a missus, it could be this girl named Sierra? (I noticed on Japanese websites, the Suikoden fan art always has drawings of Nash and Sierra. So I thought it might be her). Gosh darn Nash...he just takes off in the end of SuiIII without saying bye to anybody...especially to Chris. *Sighs*

Emeralda
09-01-2003, 09:57 PM
*pops in* Amethyst Angel: Your Chris kicked so much booty! The Geddoe too!

Kirschwasser: Yup.. same people. Luc, Futch (mmn Futch *slaps herself*) Viki, Apple, Yuber and Jeanne are in all three. There are also people who were in I and II and then some that were in II and III. Then III had the children of a couple people. Meg's daughter Belle is in it, along with her own version of Gadget. Lucia from II is now in III with her son Hugo. And then Joker was in one of the sidestories.. ummn.. Gaiden II I think. But Andrea's right.. Konami isn't confirming Nash's 'missus' though everyone I know seems to think that its Sierra. But I always thought she was after Klaus. Fickle little vampire.. heheh!

Kirschwasser
09-02-2003, 02:55 PM
*laughs at Emeralda's comment about Futch* I like Futch (I happen to like any chara that's a knight. *Fu fu fu*). I want to make a headpiece like his.
Well, I went to Suikosource.com, and I quickly went through the summaries on the Suikogaiden's (clicking on the pictures that interested me). It was so cute to see Futch with a baby Bright. Well, at least I think it's Bright...what other dragon could it be?
That did it...I'm giving up on trying to buy Suikoden II. No matter where I look, it's more than $70!!!! There's no way I'm going to pay that much for a game...I don't care how "rare" it may be.

09-02-2003, 03:01 PM
I had a group going of Sera, Yuber and Albert, but..I couldn't find any good shots of Albert. Bah..if anyone has any, could you please give them to me..? It'd be appreciated!

Rosiel
09-02-2003, 03:20 PM
Another Albert? The only Albert I have ever seen is Katan's (I want that trench it's so gorgeous *__*)... and I still can't believe she managed to recruit a girl who looked just like Sarah to stuff into our spare costume to have a full Destroyer's group. Such a cunning strategist! (I should really post a photo of the group, lazy bum that I am.)

Yuber and Albert, back to back, (http://images.cosplay.com/photo.php?photo=5874&exhibition=28) I just love this photo! :3 I should CG out the background and put it in my gallery...

A close-up of Albert looking very Albert-ish... (http://images.cosplay.com/photo.php?photo=5882&exhibition=28) even after running all the way to the convention center!

As for slightly off topic musings... keep checking back at your local video game store, offline prices for Suikoden II aren't that bad, Katan got hers for $20.
And Nash? I always thought he was fibbing about the missus, to make him seem more approachable and "fatherly", which would help him weasel his way into Chris's confidences. After the whole mess with Leon, I can't see Sierra giving it a try that quickly.

Kirschwasser
09-07-2003, 10:18 AM
Wow, those are some cool photos, Rosiel. The costumes are so perfect!
Oh...heh heh...there isn't a local video game store where I live. (Yep~, I live in a small town.) The closest place that actually has video games stores is about 100 miles away. -_-;
Hmmm, Nash being "fatherly" to Chris? Well, darn...*laughs* Being a dork I can be when it comes to video games, I was actually hoping that Chris & Nash would get together in the end. :p Either that, or she & Percival. *Smiles merrily* Hey~, that's what fan art is for!

I know this is not related to the costumes but I don't know if any of you have heard that at the next Tokyo Game Show (Sept 26-28)they plan on revealing Suikoden 4! I saw this on a few sites and all I know about the game is that the main character is a young boy with short pants and a black jacket. And he bears a true rune called the Punishment rune. I can't wait to see all of the characters and costumes.

Yeah, I've seen some screenshots of Suikoden 4. Looks like another artist is drawing the characters this time. The logo is a boat (the types you see in Pirates of the Carribean.) The game as a different look to it. Oh well, I still look foward to it. ^_^

I am waiting to see if Yuber is in Suikoden IV to start sewing. XD!! I have to catch up on his Suikoden I incarnation first, though.

I'm not too fond of the more realistic art of IV and yet again I hate the hero's looks (SIII being the exception to the rule). What tickles my fancy is that the designer said he used so much black for the hero he wants to avoid it for the other characters. Will we have newer, gentler, pink tutu Yuber this time around? XD

And does anyone else think Snow looks like Chris and Borus's kid? (I know he's not, but he sure looks it!)

(Big thank yous for all the compliments! <3 )

Yuber is in all the Suikoden's, so he more than likely is going to be in IV. *Laughs at comment above* Pink tutu Yuber...you know, that's really scary...I really can't imagine. *Grins* About the Suikoden hero's...I think the hero for Sui2 looks okay. I've never seen the hero for 1. For 3, I absolutely love it. *Hugo is great* As for 4...I'm not too sure. I'll probably get used to the character. It's the same for Final Fantasy 9, I first thought Zidane looked like such a loser, but now I am very fond of the character.
*Hee hee* The guy does look he would be a child of Chris and Borus. ^_~

Well~, I have bought the perfect material for my Yumi costume. (This was about 2 weeks ago.) I'm going to use this nice flannel material, so now the costume is going to look arctic-like. (Besides, it seems like the Alma Kinan live in a cold place). I also bought some nice faux fur and some red suede ribbon. As for the boots, I have a feeling that I am going to have to buy a suede of some type, and just add that onto a pair of boots, because I know there aren't boots that look like hers! ^__^
I'm also going to have to buy a wig. At first I decided I wouldn't, because my natural hair seemed like a good idea. But now that my hair is suddenly this medium-chestnut-gold colour (darn sun!), I'm just going to have to go for a wig. (Well, at least I don't have to cut my hair now.) ^_~

I was Tengaar at Otakon this year*nods* I considered doing a Sarah for a bit, but I don't think I'll do that one after all. I'm tired of wearing dresses and skirts for all my cosplays*laughs*

Yeah, I saw a picture of you in your Tengaar costume. Even though I haven't played the game, I know what the characters look like & your outfit was perfect!
*Laughs* Speaking of skirts & dresses, when I look at my list of characters to cosplay, all of them are wearing skirts & dresses! ^_^ The shortest outfit for me was Kirschwasser from Xenosaga. That was a bit...too short. Damn Realian outfits! *laughs again* Yumi's outfit looks small, but then again, that could just appear that way, since a lot game/manga/anime chara's have such long legs.

I'm planning on a Viki costume (Sui II), but I want to make one of Lilly (Sui III) or Tengaar or Jillia as well...

I'm playing Suikoden II right now and it's fun and with many good characters for cosplay *_*

Kirschwasser
10-28-2003, 02:17 PM
Yeah, the Suikoden's have great character design. I plan to cosplay other Suikoden III characters in the future (besides Yumi), such as Viki (adult), Sanae Y, and Shizu. Possibly Yun, even though her hair is so short. ^_^

Hallo. Hoping this threads not -quite- dead yet.

Anyway, before anybody OMGWTF's me, let's just table the facts that (a) Harmonian field uniforms are teh_sex; (b) our group already has a Sasarai; and (c) we can now cannibalize that Marilyn Monroe wig as is proper.

(Besides, I'm ditto on the pidgeonholed into being the cute!girl of our various groups. I want to be BOY damnit! And wear pants.)

So. Does anybody have any shots of Dios' back? My game's been lent out, and I'm going crazy trying to figure out how the seams work: i.e. do they run through the twin triangles that form the 'tail' as to section the back of the coat into four, and thus being really fugly? or not go with established pattern of side seams and just have two sections of complete triangleness?

... or, am I not really clear? Yargh. Sorry about that.

Kirschwasser
12-02-2003, 12:28 PM
Isn't Dios' outfit the same as Sasarai's? -_- I'm not too sure...you can try searching for it on the Net, but back-shots of characters are hard to find. In one of the Suikoden manga I have, there is a back shot of Dios, but I do not have a scanner! *Gomen~!*

Dios from the back (http://www.suikocastle.com/genso/12-12.JPG)
This and other pictures in the directory are from the Shinshos. I found the link on Suikosource.

...possible costume - Jack from S3... Otakon, if I get there... who knows...?

Dios' outfit follows that Harmonian style proper to all of them, but is really quite different from Sasarai's. (Which I'm probably going to end up doing out of spite, anyway. The Bishop one. So I can carry all my personal affects on my head, huzzah!) By the by, Kirschwasser, which manga volume is it? I know someone I could borrow it from.

Anyway, Darine, thanks for the link! It has helped. :)

And Catpaw, hurrah for the Jacques! Hope to see you at next year's Otakon with that one, if you can make it.

Ya I'll try... It seems easy though! (Da costume) I'll laugh if I find a pretty good blue trenchcoat at Value Village... XDD Damn I need a shot of Jack's shoes...

Ummm, let's see...I don't have access to my manga right now (I'm so far away from home), but let me remember....
...I do believe it's volume 4. There are quite a few references for both Sasarai and Dios' outfits in that particular volume.

I haven't read the entire thread but I had planned to put this poll in and there's already a Suikoden thread... so... *shrug*. Anyway, with so many Suikoden characters, it's tempting to just go through all of them and search for the cosplay that look the most appealling to you . So that's the poll... http://gallery.suikonline.net/categories.php?cat_id=1&page=1

... I've never played any of the Suikoden but I do like the designs. The most appealling ones to me to cosplay would be Suikoden 2-version of Luc, Ayame and/or Watari, and Nadir... so how about the rest of you... ? ^^

Not necessarily the one I'd like to make, but the one I would love to wear is Sasarai's outfit from Suikoden III (see the previous page). XD Camus from Suikoden II is kind of appealing as far as outfits, but I am very happy with being Flik as my character from the game (once I upgrade parts of the outfit, of course).

And looking at Suikoden IV and my track record of characters, I know I'll be pigeonholed into being the hero. I mean, black outfit, headband, shorts, and dual swords! And he's also another short character when I'm on the tall side! >_>


Oh, and Scortia keep checking game stores near you (EB/Gamestop, not Best Buy) for a copy of Suikoden III.

Aside from Chris' grassland outfit (which I love ^_^), the other costumes I liked from Suikoden III were Sarah's, Viki's and Yun's. I don't know if I'd ever make them, but there's still a chance I might make Sarah's.

Speaking of Suikoden 4, I'm probably going to cosplay Viki in 2005. My original plan was to cosplay the S3 version of her, but I'll more than likely love the game when it comes out this late fall, and then I'll be cosplaying the S4 version of her. ^_^

Go Sheena!!! My brother cosplayed as Sheena about a year and a half back . . . since then he hasn't donned it. Perhaps I should comandeer it from him and Sheena shall be, in this case, twice reborn!

Too bad I won't be going to either of those conventions. Spread the Suiko love!

Oh another Sheena cosplayer sweet! I have only seen one other do his costume and it was a japanese cosplayer. Got any photos? hehehe. I might bring Sheena long for AX 2005..... I'm doing Fire Hero for that though, so I dunno lol.

Wow.....There must be a lot of Suikoden Cosplayers in the East coast.....Cause as far as I know, I'm the only Cosplayer around my area that does Suikoden Cosplay. and I feel lonely about it :bigcry: :bigcry: .

So Far, I've done Riou(from Suikoden II). I'm working on Hugo at the moment,
cause he looks like me. Well....take a look at my Riou Costume if you want, I've seen yours, they look cool, all of yours. Very Impressive.

Suikoden III:

Hello all! ^_^ I'm planning to do an Aila cosplay for an upcoming con and I need help finding some pics. I have a pic of her whole body, front view and she's slightly turned towards the right side but I need more ref images. Trust me, I've looked and searched the net like crazy and haven't found anything good enough to use (maybe one screenshot I found but still...). Does anyone one have the Suikoden III art book or any good manga scans, pics, images showing the back of Aila's outfit and around the rest of her. I really would love to make this costume as accurate as possible. I would really, really appreciate this help! Thanks a billion!!!! :D
