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 " matelassť" 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 Ť_Ť

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:
This is absolutely amazing! I can't believe all the details!
