Hilde  ~  unter wasser. by Shoko-Cosplay Hilde  ~  unter wasser. 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 " 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 ^^

Awesome picture and incredible cosplay.. The beauty lays in the details...incredible work. How's the new sewing machine working? Armors were not comfortable back in 1100 and they still not comfortable today. Great job...

Hi ^^ thank you!! The new sewing machine work pretty good! I was able to sew "big" fabrics without problems, to sew fur fabric... thank to this gift, this costume is born.This armor wasn't really hard to wear, just a little hot ( in summer xD) the weather was so hot than it began to rain ( storm outside) so I ran outside and requested Omaru for 3 fast fast pictures, and it is amazing with the rain falling down on Hilde, it give a nice effect:) I was surprised and happy to see the pictures ^^
