Viola and Tira


Costume Information

For the Soul Calibur group Saturday of Kitacon.

Was originally going to be Amy but I love Viola's look so much i must do her @.@ i mean cosplay her xD x.

I've given this display another try buy editing a lilac dress I bought on eBay and its working!! =D x

Update 11/04/12 - today is my last day to finish this cosplay @.@ it's been such a long ongoing problem and caused me so many tears >.< But i am nearly complete! The roses i ordered never arrived so i've had to make some from scratch - i need to make two more to put on the cloak, i need to just attach two more lines of beads, edit the second boot, embroider some red on the dress & varnish the claws. Then i am complete! The lights never arrived for the orb and the wire i got to hold it doesn't work too well so although i'm very dissapointed (the base of the orb costing me £30 in itself >.>) i will be leaving it behind for kita, will definetly have it for when i do viola's alternate outfit though!!

Shopping List

2x Wigs£30.00Bought
Lilac polycotton £8.50Bought
Grey Polycotton£3.75Bought
more purple fabric£12.75Bought


Bought the rest of the stuff (Posted 20th March 2012)

I've bought all my last things for viola today including some beautiful red contact lenses. Thank goodness there's two bank holidays before kitacon - these will be viola days!

Last Go (Posted 6th March 2012)

I decided today to give this one last shot by editing a lilac dress which i found on ebay for £27.
If this doesn't work then i'll be doing the 2nd outfit of hers.
I've also bought some lilac boots to edit =3 x.

start of "claws" (Posted 4th February 2012)

Done this a while ago but only now been bothered to put this picture up xD This is the start of the claws - next will be some lovely foam detail :3 x.

4th time lucky... (Posted 2nd February 2012)

Yes i did it again >.> I've never been this bad with materials for a cosplay before. But i am very unhappy with all the purple material i've had so far >.< I've got some lilac leatherette to make the dress with, i'll use some of the stretchy material i already have to make the armwarmers. I've bought some burgundy leatherette to make the cloak - AND I GOT A BACK SHOT NOW! =D So as soon as that arrives i will be making the cloak ^^
And i've also pre-ordered my copy of Soul Calbur V, Can't wait to get it!! x.

Progress so far - (Posted 26th January 2012)

One wig arrived. Still waiting on the other, when that arrives i can start to style that. I've bought some res velvet for the inner part of the cloak and some silver bias binding, going to get some burgundy leatherette and then start making that. I've bought 85% of the materials i need for the dress, will start making that closer to the time. Now just to buy some roses, boots to edit and some beads and we're good to go! =D x.

3rd time lucky? (Posted 3rd January 2012)

bought some more purple fabric, fingers crossed this one is good >< x.

Wigs bought (Posted 20th December 2011)

I've bought two silver wigs which i will then weft together to make thick before i style into the drill curls, i just hope i don't mess it up lol
