Hilde  Kunst portrait by Shoko-Cosplay Hilde  Kunst portrait by Shoko-Cosplay
Hi guys,
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 " matelass" 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 : :iconnebulaluben:

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 _

This is the two links 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 ^^

Thank you :)  all our armors are made in foam called " plastazote" :)
 but you know, the paint job is the key for a realistic result, I use simply car spray paint

It was a delicate part for the painting.I really wanted a realistic " old chrome" effect, as if it was a true armor from old time...But, not really easy to find the correct aspect.I made lot of tests on my foam.
I was surprised because people found the result good, Hilde was a big project, more complicated than Gabranth because of the sewing parts and painting on the fabric, armor and the difficult helmet.

You've definitely managed that the armor looks old, I'm always speechless and totally impressed about your realistic works, it looks always so difficult and complicated. Im really a great fan of your works hon. The armor of your Hilde looks really complicated but you did it, your armor always look as if they were directly from the particular game or series I love it. :dance:

Wonderful pose. =) I watched your skit and I must say that you look really sexy when you walk wearing that armor. I notice you put too much love in this cosplay and I always appreciate that in a cosplayer.

Good job and remember...

YOU WILL PREVAIL! =D

Ahah ^^ yes, I will prevail ^^ thank you, I will tell you a secret, I plan to do another Hilde, not for the moment but It is plan.I am impatient to do her, it was my first " heart catching" character in soul calibur :) I was surprised Hilde was appreciate like that, I always read bad comment about her look, her fighting style...I can't understand why because she is fantastic for me ^^'
Maybe...it is just " gamers haters" who think that... but, I don't mind, it is important to share characters I like with most dedication and heart ^^

again thank you :)
