Soulcalibur

Last Updated: 08-07-2007


This costume really surprised me. I was fairly positive that I would never finish it, and if by some miracle I did, then it wouldn't come out looking very nice at all. When I did manage to put the finishing touches on the costume (a few hours before my plane was scheduled to leave for the con) I was both surprised and pleased with the result. It has become one of my favorite costumes ^_^. The lovely Sophitia in some of the photos is Alisa.

***Funny Side Note: I am actually shorter than Alisa by several inches. In order to make me look tall next to her she would stand in holes, while I stood on rocky/raised areas.***

BODYSUIT: This was made using Butterick pattern (#6541).

VEST: I had to make my own pattern for the vest. It is made out of vinyl.

TABI BOOTS: I made my own patterns for these. **Thanks to Tess from the COSP ML for her helpful hints ^_-.**

SHOES: The flip flops were bought.

ARMOR PIECES: These were made with pieces of foam that I covered with metallic material using a glue gun. The teeth were created using Paperclay that I painted silver.

MASK: I had to create my own pattern for the mask, and fit it to my face.

SWORDS: I found the swords at a 'Dollar Tree' store. They attach to the costume by sliding through elastic loops I fitted to the back of my vest.

HAIR PIECE: I made this by covering a foam cylinder with the same material used to make the bodysuit.

HAND PIECES: I made my own patterns for these.
