Soul Calibur IV

Last Updated: 12-22-2012


Costume was presented at Gamescom 2012 where i onyl wore it to walk around the convetion halls. I will wear it at its fullest at convetion in Poland soon :)

Kimono and obi was handpainted with acrylics. I also specially 'wore -out' and burnt the scarf. The claws were made of special long fake nails at the hands as well as on feet. Horns are attached to wig with little clips and were made out fimo.
The most fun part was definietly make up. I got special lenses, fake lashes and blood for this costume - i even decided to wear ltitle fake fangs and scared photographers with them :) Wig was cut specially for this costume by my great friend, Niemti.

The club was one of my biggest props i've ever made. I wanted it to be as light as possible, also i needed to make it somehow transportable in the car. Since the prop is even higher than me i made it split in two parts which i could connect when i wanted. The base is made out of architectural cardboard, filled with insulation foam. Then i added fimo spikes and resin gemstone with kanji. Fot the handle i wanted to achieve this used look - it was burnt, dirted with a some mud, red fabric and loads of other stuff :) In the end i am very happy with the result.
