Costume Information

Description
A little about why I want to cosplay this character.
Well waaaaay back in 1997 my bro got a ps1 like the brick ps1 an on it was soul blade with, A Japanese girl with a big weapon an she became my best fighter I have to say, I rivaled the best of them playing as her, anyway she has grown and been kept in and given sub plots with other characters which makes me love her more an now she speaks english lol so yea that is why I want to do this I have over 7 months to get fit lol. Hopefully I will do her justice :)

youtibe vid - is the ending of soulblade and the reason i loved her XD

kitacon 4!!!!!!!!!!!!


i have defiantly decided sc4 version as looking at her profile
she is 23 and 5ft4" = my age at time of kita and my height lol


her name Seung Mina in soul blade ... Seong mi-na in sc

relationship info XD

intended to Hwang SB
Friend of Talim. SC3
Defeated by Ivy in Soulcalibur. SC
similar// same moves as kilik SC
Yun-Seong is sort of like a brother,/teacher -many games have their stories matching sc 3,4


now the 30th may 2012 finally completed all the little details on the sleeves and down the front and remaking of the weapon, the stage moves went a bit wrong thanks to my nervs but im so happy i finally completed this to a high standard


and yes i did embroider it all myself XD


worn at kitacon
mcm expo london may
and now play expo manchester XD

I loved that you used embroidery so much and you did the shading so well! I admire your patience for hand embroidering it all but it will turn out amazing once it's all complete :)

epic fail (Posted 21st May 2012)

so i remade the weapon with a wooden head.... tried it out and it flew off not just a little flight but a large one so i went back to the drawing board yesterday and made another version out of foam. So far i have used cardboard wood and now foam lol

weapon (Posted 3rd April 2012)

so wooden pole and a bottle or radox.... and paper mache but how do i make it smooth ?

skirt (Posted 16th December 2011)

this is the one thing i have been really dreading, i have 2 types of curtains but if i did it wrong then i don't have spare fabric. So i just went for it and the result wasn't too bad. At the front i need to pull in the side (more leg view) but i shall be saving my modesty by not having an opening at the top XD and wearing shorts the next bit is the flower pattern using the fabric slimdefinition found i will be using it as a template and hopefully all goes well

thank you SlimDefinition (Posted 25th October 2011)

so slimDefinition had this amazing flower on the back of her Beatrix and i thought she had painted it but she had got it from some fabric, the lovely lady has been out and bought me some flower material and she has even had a picture of seong mina to get the correct flower shade. SHE IS AMAZING!!!!!

this has taken one element out of this costume so i feel so happy and so thankful. I love the kind cosplayers we have on here !

decided (Posted 12th October 2011)

finally decided SC4 it is! At kitacon i shall be 23 which is the same age as Seong mi-na so we shall go with it. However i think i have picked the most detailed costume of hers.

going to make the basics then add detail an then add the lining sounds simple enough
