Hilde~ Rettet Wolfkrone by Shoko-Cosplay Hilde~ Rettet Wolfkrone by Shoko-Cosplay
:thumb314414740: :thumb314233872:

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 " 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 : :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 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 ^^

The best cosplay of Hildegard Von Krone that I have ever seen in my life. =) You look fantastic with that armor and your red hair. I even think that you can defeat (without problem) any girl with few clothes from Soul Calibur, who doesn't have good protection to swords precisely. That's why I love Hilde … =D she dresses for the battle appropriately and doesn't need to be half-naked to show us that she is sexy. Congratulations! You are already the official Hilde cosplayer! ;)

Thank you :_: it is so kind! I am agree, the others are too " naked", I like the notion of true knight with full armor, good weapons.
It will be a quite pretentious to pretend " official Hilde" but, I feel honored reading that *blush* thank you very much :rose:

SUBLIME. j'aime beaucoup Hilde dans sc aussi, et franchement, ton cosplay est plus que réussi.
petite suggestion: si l'envie t'en prend, essaye peut être de le "vieillir" un peu.
en tout cas très bon travail, très impressionnant comme toujours ^^

Merci ça me touche beaucoup :) j'ai vraiment une passion pour ce perso du coup je voulais que le costume soit " particulier" à mes yeux.En fait l'armure a le même rendu que le jeu si tu met le mode création avec Hilde, ça brille mais il y a les effets usés, je pense que ça ne se voit pas trop sur les photos, mais en tout cas en vrai, c'est très fidèle.Ca a été très difficile d'obtenir le bon rendu, et au final c'était très enrichissant ^^ merci encore pour la critique constructive ^^ j'apprécie beaucoup!

Thank you very much ^^ it was so different from Gabranth, Gabranth seem to be most " awesome", but Hilde was really the hardest costume I realised :/ The difficult parts were the helmet, flag, sewing parts and the realistic aspect of the fabric, painting of armor.I dye even the fur of scarf. But, I was very happy of the result :) Hilde is my favourite character ^^

You did great. What an amazing job, and the thing that I like the most about your cosplays is the attention to every possible detail. You are a perfectionist and nothing gives me more pleasure than finding new things every time I see your cosplays...:) Congrats

You're right, it isn't really perfectionnism, but I am a passionnate woman.I like to respect the character I "play", close to the reality.Sometimes it is really hard, but I do my best, because it is a work of fan.Each character I choose is special for me, had a signification, an identity I like :) I am glad if you catch your attention on every details ^^ it is the proof for me my work can be appreciate, many thanks :rose:

Après Gabranth, je ne pensais pas voir encore plus ultime, et pourtant tu l'as fait. Ta Hilde est absolument magnifique, autant sur les parties tissu que sur les parties armure, et c'est la grande classe. Je suis amoureuse de ta lance, aussi <3

Shoko-Cosplay Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Aw merci, ça me touche beaucoup, je me suis bien amusée dessus - et pris la tête-, la majorité des tissus ont été teints, même la fourrure ^^ du coup c'était plus un travail de peinture et de réalisme dans les teints à obtenir qu'une galère à coudre.Et j'ai pu le faire grâce au lot de paris cosplay, ma vieille machine a pris feu au pied et ne cousait plus la fourrure, les tissus cuirs ^^' Hilde a été 5 mois très difficiles avec bcp de découragement, mais je suis très contente du résultat, c'est vraiment rare.Le costume semble très simple, mais de très loin, il a été pire que Gabranth... xD félicitation encore à toi et Evance votre duo était trop beau, je suis fan ^^

Le résultat est à la hauteur du travail fourni en tout cas ! Tout le travail de teinture donne un rendu très naturel et réaliste, ça en valait la peine ^^
Et il ne semble pas "simple", au contraire, parce qu'il y a un travail tout en finesse sur de nombreux éléments qui saute aux yeux (ce casque *__*) et qui est très impressionnant, même si l'ensemble n'est pas une grosse armure lourde. Encore bravo <3
