Setsuka (Player 2 Costume (Victorian Themed)) - Soul Calibur IV




First costume I sewed up myself. :) If I'd known how much craft was involved in it I probably wouldn't have started it, lol. Had a great time with it though, the masquerade was amazing. :) And the other people in my group for it were brilliant.

The hardest bit was probably the motif on the bottom, it all needed hand painting, sigh. And half was using a different paint that required three coats. Took about 6 hours. XP Also needed a lot of layers to get the sleeves to fan out like that, was a layer of taffeta, then twill, then taffeta. The whole thing was a lot of problem solving to fix stuff, heh. Very rewarding though, and all that. :)

Great 2p Setsuka. Loved the costume and the detailing you put into it. It was great to meet you (I was Raphael). Love the photos
