this is my latest costume.I work during 5 long and hard months on Hilde.
Why Hilde? She is from far my favourite character from Soulcalibur! First, I was in love with her IV outfit, but when the soulcalibur V was released, I found this one particulary interesting.
As I won at Paris cosplay a sewing machine, I wanted to give a try to this version for use the gift and make other thing than full armor.
It was very interesting to sew, to dye fabric and fur, to create patterns myself.
I spend more time on the fabric parts than the armor itself.
I made myself the purple jacket with " matelassé" aspect.
All is hand made, the chain mail, the helmet with the removing part on the top, the eperons, the belts...I dye the wig too in order to have the good " red/auburn".
The flag was the hardest part with the little red skit and the helmet.
5 months ago, I meet Laura, who worked on Hilde too, we shared lot of things thank to Hilde ^^ I was really happy to find someone who made Hilde in the same time.
I finally meet Laura during Japan expo, and she was really kind and funny!
Have a look on her gallery please :
During the con the weather was very very hot, it was hard to wear Hilde's outfit, but I was at ease on stage ^^
I was however very very tired and my face show how I was close to faint è_è
This is the link of my skit, sadly because of the light, no one saw my fighting pose at the beginning.
I have really lot of good memories of Hilde, it was hard as hell, but I was happy of my work for this time.
Hilde is special for me ^^
Photo and manipulation by Nachte :
Very good on the armor costume. Good weapon with the flag and the dagger.
I like the scenery and the photo of this. Yup it has been mirrored and connected together!
I love Hildegard Von Krone, she rocks I remember watching a Music Video of her on YouTube with the song Wait by Earshot was playing. A perfect theme song for her. Awwww the video got deleted!
The first time I know Hilde thanks to that video and knowing the band Earshot (such a underrated band)
I am really to read such nice and cheers about Hilde!
Thank you very much
I understand you for asthma, my mother has this illness ^^' it is very hard for her.So, take care of yourself!
For the moment, I spend 2-3 months suffering but I see the end.
I am not often sick, but when I caught a illness...it is very long ^^'
I know many people in the same case.I am very careful with health.
Your mother also suffers from asthma? I am very sorry for your mother it´s a bad illness. Thanks dear I was sick for two weeks, I got a severe bronchitis which was triggered by having my asthma and now wants to go not my cough. Yesterday I went to a lung doctor because my doctor was afraid that I get a lung infection -.- thank God it's not lung infection but now I must take cortisone it´s a bitter medicine bähhhh.
Oh my I´m really sorry to hear dear I hope your feeling better now. Yeah health is really the most important thing you have take care of yourself dear
I feel better now but it was so hard to walk again... now, I can walk 7 km without too much difficulties, 45 days ago I was about 500 meters walk... I feel really happy now of my succes.It was frightening...
Now I realise health is really fragile.I am really carefull now.
I hope you are in better condition now.
Take care dear
About Hilde, i love the knights, and she's a beautiful knight. I love her combat style with the dagger and the spear and i really like her design, and i think that she's my fav new character of SC 4. Of course i love Isabella Valentine from long time ( SC 1 on dreamcast ), but i like very much Hilde too ^^...And she suits you very well ^^
Aahahahah don't worry i understand you very well about Ivy...She's a hard character to cosplay XD
Ps: I've seen Queen's blade rebellion lately and i want to ask you, what do you think about the new characters???
It is very nice to see you again!
For Hilde, yes I feel the same! I always liked knights, swords, honor and spirit of this age.
Hilde is my fave since I saw her in soulca IV.
First, I wanted to do her first outfit...but I saw the newest and falling in love with the "old fabric" part, the choice of material, the griffons.
For Queen's blade: really good question! I was a bit sad to see Menace, Echidna aren't in the rebellion serie, but Luna Lunaaaaaaa she is so cute and funny!!! I love her!!! She is awesome!
I wish to cosplay her but...she has kind of exotic penis xDD arg
I like annelotte too, because she is my ideal as a knight, she is brave, proud, she follow her instinct.I like her a lot!
I wish to cosplay her too, I bought my wig since 2009 xD but I never finish the costume because many reasons.
I will do them I think.But for the moment, I take my time for making some model kits, and my plan for ECG, I am french representant for ECG cosplay contest, it was a big surprise o_o so, my plans are differents for now.
I hope you will follow my work, thank you for the big kind message for Hilde, I put my dreams inside ^^
About Hilde i understand well your reasons, because she's a very good character with a strong soul and personality...She's noble but also a warrior ( a knight in this case )and i like here very much for these characteristics^^.
For Queen's blade...Ahahahaha i feel the same, and that's the reason because i wanted to ask you that^^. Ehhhhh our beautiful Echidna, come back to ussssssss plz XD. But yes, i like the new characters. About the design i love so much Branwen ( I'm of Rome and i like very much the gladiators ) with her funny master ( that f....g dwarf makes me laugh XD especially in the Branwen's book ). And yes, Luna Luna...Ohhhhhh she's so hot especially with her bronze skin ( sun dancer maybe?). But that penisssss XD Jesus, ok we know well that it's only a jewel, but the form XD A penis?, a giant clit? XD ahahahaha. Strange things in this series my dear, i tell you XD Very strange things ^_^, and the poor Annelotte is in the middle XD Awwwwww poor poor and beautiful Annelotte, What have you done to deserve all of these embrarassing situations???? XD
Oh right...Your model kits, another thing that suit you very well...And you've a loooooooooooot of them ( one day all those beautiful girls that you've made with so much love, they will jump on you at night when you sleep...i tell you, prepare yourself for a great love assault XD ).
ECG uh...EUROPEAN COSPLAY GATHERING...ahhhhh i know that contest, i think that in Italy the ECG selections are in the city of Lucca, like the last year, in the same period of your Japan Expo. Do you know in person some Italian cosplayers?
You hope that i will follow your work???? Ahahahah you don't need to hope, you're a very kind girl with a big heart and a excellent cosplayer...I will follow you surely, because i like those things in a person ^_^
On dirait des vrais armures, si t'étais née aux moyen-age, t'aurais surement été armurière
