Information

Legacy of Kain has been my favourite game since I was 7, and the actual making of the Cosplay was stumbled on when I was shopping for fabrics ^^ I looked at all the purple fabrics and thought, “These would be awesome for an Umah costume…” So yeah. It started from there.

The majority of the costume was made from mauve Lycra and elastic. It’s nice and fitting around the body, and was very easy to work with. The shoulder guard was made by Simon from Iceni Militaria, and made a wonderful job with accuracy, fit, and detail. The cape is sewn to a thin piece of foam inside the shoulder guard which helps it sit comfortably on my shoulder. However, I cannot move my arm very well up and down! And lastly, the long ponytail is completely fake. It’s a ponytail extension which I use instead of my real hair to give a full volumised look.

All in all, to me? LOK = Love X3

Wow that's a daring and sexy cosplay! Well done, looks great - I know lycra isn't the easiest stuff to work with. I love that shade of purple. :)

Thank you very much :) I love this character so much ^^ But oddly, I actually prefer working lycra sometimes. Becuase it clings to the body more snuggly ^^

As much as I didn't like BO2... You look absolutely stunning as Umah!

Really? You didn't like it? That's a shame. And you really are a flatterer :) Thank you <3

Manjou: Don't worry, you will eventually :) I plan to rewear the cosplay again and again when I get the chances.

I love this so much! :D I wanna put a LoK/Soul Reaver group together at some point, if so would you be interested? :)

CherushiiBun posted on 28 December, 2012 - 01:18
Sketch: I would definitely be interested! Would it be purely the Soul Reaver era or characters from the various eras? Like Blood Omen, Defiance and such? :)
