Hildegarde von Krone 3 by Shoko-Cosplay Hildegarde von Krone 3 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 ^^

Thank you ^^ the spear/flag was a difficult part on the costume because of the delicate sculptures and paint job.I was happy with the result (for one time xD)

Splendide !! (comme toujours en faite)
Si tu me pouvais me dire ton secret pour publier des photos de plus en plus belles.....on a dépassé la perfection depuis longtemps ! ^-^
Le travail de l'armure est phénoménal !
Bref, est-ce utile de redire toujours les mêmes choses ? Tu es une cosplayeuse d'un niveau.....GRANDIOSE ! :D

Merci beaucoup, c'est grâce au travail des photographes talentueux qui acceptent de me prendre en photo! Il y a plein de cosplayers bien plus talentueux ^^' j'essaye juste de faire les persos que j'aime :) de mettre le plus possible de passion dans ce que je fais^^

(Je répond à tes 2 réponses....un petit mix) ^^' Sa me fait plaisir de prendre le temps de commenter un travail que je trouve superbe !

Je ne vois pas comment tu pourrais décevoir..... Tu es déjà, pour moi, un gage de qualité ! Et tu n'as pas à te faire désirer très longtemps pour obtenir des photos ! Tout le monde est content !
Tu es heureuse de voir que ton travail plait, les photographes (amateur ou non) comme moi sont plus que ravis que d'avoir des magnifiques photos ! Sacré souvenir en poche ^^
Tu travailles avec passion et quel resultat ! C'est Soul Calibur qui peut etre honoré qu'une personne est fait une si représentation de ce jeu !

Et pour les cosplayeurs meilleurs de que toi...... Je te met au défi de me trouver beaucoup de personnes de la JE meilleurs que toi ! En tête, j'en vois 3-4 de ton niveau, mais pas plus ! Tu es déjà au top du niveau ! :D
Merci a toi de créer puis nous montrer de telles oeuvres d'art !

I love how complete your costumes are! There's never a gap or something that you did not intend. How long did the flag alone take to complete?

Shoko-Cosplay Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you veryyyy much Adekii! I spend about 2 full weeks on the flag.It was intense work but the only hard part on the flag was: the sculpt of gripphyns heads, the details on the sewing flag. The assembly, paint job was fast. :)
