Tira (2P) - Soul Calibur 4





Very little good hasd come out of SC4 but there are a few gems hidden in there. Despite how horrid Tira's default costume is in SC4 I completly fell in love with her 2P outfit and I think it definatly suits her character. Plus I like that it ties back to her default costume from SC3 :)

I'm definatly going to take my time over making this outfit and have a feeling I'll be buying a lot of leatherette and purple spray paint xD


Wearing this costume at Aya con was much fun! ^^ and especially being part of the awesome Soul Calibur group.

My only regret is that I didn't manage to 100% finish the costume before the con u_u I was missing armour and a few minor details, but I'm stil very happy with the outcome and it was MOSTLY finished afterall (and that I also forgot my body-tape to glue the costume to my body in areas because it's a non-stretch material...thus is was a bit bulgey and flappy at the back.. which annoys me in the photos). Next time I wear this costume it will be 100% complete instead of 95% complete! LOL

Thanks VanillaMoon ^_^ The ringblade is mostly made from foam-board :) (with layering of segments for the inner ring details finished with paper-mache and painting)

Feeling achievment

I feel like I&#039;m finally getting somewhere now as I&amp;#039;ve found a spray to colour the leatherette and also I finally have skulls! OMG they were really hard to find o_O oddly. I thought finding 9 small skulls was going to be the easy part...I was wrong. So I&#039;ve got the green body of the dress done and I&#039;m feeling achievment!I&#039;ve also done most of the hat and about 50% of both the neck collar and the big drapey shoulder collar.

Also not long to go and still so much to do! Need more time~~

Though I&amp;#039;d post some WIP&amp;#039;s :)

It does begin!

Recently I was finally able to get some material in the colours I need so sewing was able to start! I'm so relieved. Not long left now to go to make this costume in, after all.

The hat is 2/3's done and I've begun work on the dress. I'm still lacking the leatherette I need though..Might have to paint some.

I might even post some WIP's soon :)

3rd May 2009

It begins?

I've finally begund buying bits of things I need for this costume (trims, lace, cord, clay etc). Much later than I would like! and not for lack of trying either! It has proven harder than I originally thought to find the materials I need in the colours I need - which is still an ongoing process... So for now I'll start on casting and making all buckles and skulls, I guess; do what I can while I can.

I'm very much itching to begin sewing on this though...! (Especially seeing as Aya Con is creeping closer very fast >_>; eep!)
