Skull Knight Berserk by Shoko-Cosplay Skull Knight Berserk by Shoko-Cosplay
Hi guys,
Skull knight is an enigmatic character from Berserk.
Jerôme wanted to do him since many years.
After his sadness of last july, Ben call him for cheering him and Jerome decided to do the Skull knight 18days before the con "Paris cosplay".
It was a crazy project for so few time...
Jerome made very fast the pieces and bring me his work in order I can made finitions and paint job.

He told me " do as you wish".I can imagine skull knight is in metallic silver armor in the manga, but I though " he is in bone... why can't I do old bone aspect?".

And I create a color scheme very strange based on white, soft yellow, yellow, brown effects.
Finally, I was happy of my choice, it was " different" from what Jerome expected but he liked the result.

I think he made some proportions mistakes for the legs but, the costume seem accurate.Skull knight gave him good memories and cheer him in not give up the cosplay hobby.

After the con, I discovered this photo...I don't know the photographer but...he create an awesome foggy background very accurate to the Berserk atmosphere, I was really amazed!
I really like this picture I wanted to share our latest creation.
I don't made many things on the skull :/

Amazing pict by YLS Novak.

Woooow, AMAZING!!

I found this looking for Skull knight pics on google because I also want to cosplay him. Do you know which materials used your friend to make the costume? Thank you very much! I'm still thinking about the colors, metal or old bones, but this is definitely great!

We used foam for skull knight IN 1CM Sheet. I hesitate a lot for the choice of colors and big berserk fans don't like it because for them, skull is in metal armor... :/ it is that's why I put a black and white picture ^^ I wish you good luck for the project, it is really hard to adapt on body. :) thank you very much for the kind appreciation!

Thanks for the detailed answer, it will really be useful in the future. I was planning to use foam anyway, but it's great to know Jerome did it with foam, too ^^

Thank you very much!
