Hildegard Von Krone by Shoko-Cosplay Hildegard Von Krone 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!


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 ^^

Give a new try ^^ she is not so hard to use I think :) her fighting style is just " different" from other soulcalibur characters. ( Personaly, I suck a lot with viola xD)

The craftsmanship on this is just... well crazy comes to mind, but it's incredible. The armor looks amazing as well as all the straps holding them in places. The Helm especially looks like it must have taken quite a bit of time to get right. How comfortable was that to have on?

Still all the details from of the outfit and flag, just wow. Amazing job.

Thank you so much, the helmet was one of the most difficult parts, it can be open or close with a system :)

the costume was extremely hot to wear, not imconfortable, just hot.

I am really  happy to read such nice appreciation about Hilde, thanks again!

Simply amazing. Wanted to ask, the armor. I've seen a couple tutorials on how to make armor, but was wondering how you went about it. Especially the details upon the armor. If a trade secret, that's fine, figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. =)
Again, amazing job on everything.

Oh it is a little complicated to explain in english ( I know my english is TERRIBLE <-<) I  update WIP on our FB page, so you can easily understand how to process without a single word.

Just a précision about coating: I use a french product for prevent " water infiltration", it seem it is only foundable in my country :/
I suggest you to use white glue or gesso ( on worbla if you use this material) for coating  before the paint.
After, a friend told me " plasti dip" exist in differents country, maybe it can be a good alternative.
This is the link to my page, you can see WIP for zhu bajie ( foam armors) and Anne lotte ( work with worbla) :)

Thank you so much! I can say: with lot of patience :/ Hilde is one of my dream costume and the lot of work on her is count in months ( 5), but, with test, motivation, all is possible, the secret is to keep faith in the realisation, and to accept to made mistakes and redo pieces if something is wrong.I wish you to make your own armor one day :)
