My group loves their props and during Sac-Anime this weekend, we stumbled across an art book that a fellow member noticed and instantly fell in love with the costumes. Now, we had no idea what it was or even what the video game series is about, but we already knew we had to know and had to cosplay from it. So, I've begun hunting down all the Valkyria Chronicles games (apparently that is what it was called) so we may play through them. We've decided to try our hands on our biggest prop yet - a tank. Not just any tank, but a near/life size tank.

We're turning a car (my car), into one of the tanks from the game as a prop. This will probably span an extremely long time, but it will be a testament to our skill and determination. Woo!

Well, when I finish the series, I know what I'm watching.
It's from the OVA, then. The Princess Without A Smile.

As with most Kaleido Star outfits, the DVD/magazine/some other source art is amazing and detailed and in the anime it gets super simplified. .-. Like what they did with Layla's Arabian Nights outfit.

From this to this.

Here is a screencap of Sora and Rosetta in their outfits from The Princess Without A Smile.


EDIT: Yeah, I didn't find out until after I finished the series and Layla's OVA that Rosetta had one too. o: I'm not sure why, I think it was just harder to find or something.

We have a rough idea on how to do it, but we've never attempted something of this caliber so I have no idea what will happen, haha. When things become a little more concrete, I'll probably create a dA section or on here for the progress. Should be interesting. ^_^//

Yeah....well, it's probably easier to animate/less money when it's simpler.
Aw, I can't see the original outfit! D: I really wanna see now....

Oh. Yeah. It's definitely from that. And that's probably the 52nd episode that comes with it since there are only 51, aren't there?

Oops, sorry, I didn't see it didn't link properly. D: Here it is again.

And yeah, it's labeled as Ep 52.

Google Images~ Because I don't know where else to look either. xD;

That one was hosted on Zerochan, which is why it didn't show up when I linked it the first time.

A-are you turning a car into 'the' Edelweiss?! Or just a random Gallian tank? I MUST See this from WIP to final! As a Huge VC fan and as someone whose dreamed of Cosplaying the Shocktrooper class for years, It would make my year to see that!

They like to do that. D:
I guess I'll just stick with what I have, since I can't find much more than that...

Were you looking for something in particular? I had a friend who was thinking about cosplaying from Kaleido Star and so in chatting with her about it, I ended up seeing some differences between magazine/other source costumes and the simplified versions.

Joining in the Kaleido Star conversation don't forget the third chibi OVA thing. I found it to be hilarious.

Finally, the spray paint is dry enough that I can do the other side of feather thing. After this I just have to wait for it to dry and then put modge podge over it and I'm done with the naginata. ^_^

Not really in particular, I just like seeing all the pretty costumes and trying to figure out which ones are feasible and look awesome so I can cosplay them when I get the time. XD
