Sophitia (Soul Calibur III) Images and Prop Help Needed

My next costume is going to be Sophitia from Soul Caliber III, in her white dress (can't remember which player that is), and I'm having a lot of trouble finding good images of it, especially her armor. Would anyone be able to help me out there? Because I'd really like to get started but I don't feel comfortable until I've seen a few more pictures.

Also, this will be the first time I'm tackling such large props as her shield and sword. Does anyone have any suggestions for them? I was thinking of making her shield and sword hilt out of paperclay, but I'm not sure what to make the blade out of. Also, I had a friend who made a prop sword and coated it in resin to make it shiny and more durable, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that.

Any help anyone could give me would be excellent! Thanks, all!

This is the year of very little cosplay. How sad.

My Livejournal: It's not angsty. I promise.

You'll probably get this answer lots, but..
Without a doubt, the best reference you'll get is the game itself. Within the character museum, there's the ability to move the camera to view the character at any angle. I know this is what I used to complete my Tira outfit, I literally left the game running and fiddled with the camera as needed.

For the sword and shield, be sure to check out the sword thread for some help. I would also suggest looking around for any tutorials or advice on Link's sword and shield from Zelda...since it is about the same style.

Good luck, and don't forget to check out the Soul Calibur thread for advice
