Leixia - Soul Calibur V





A small chinese girl wheelding a sword what's not to like? 8D

Even though I didn't really get used to the battle controls (for the majority of the time I button bashed XD) I have always really like some of the female designs from Soul calibur cos of how beautifully detailled they are (In some cases some were WAY TOO detailled for me to wanna give a shot at making like Ashlotte - Dat cage skirt and armour... ¬.¬)

I've always wanted to cosplay from Soul calbur but I never felt there was one that would both jump at me and that wasn't beyond my amateur skill level - Amy was a consideration but I still wasn't so sure and honestly I've always really liked Xianghua's design but again, that detail 0.o - then when I saw the designs for some new characters in SC V, I instantly loved Leixia's design :D (Even though I know it'll be a time consuming pain)

First of all, being the extreme prop weapon phobic that I am, I wouldn't know how to tackle the sword. Secondly, the whole bubblehem shorts thing would bother me cos I know I'll have to delve into using sheer fabric like chiffon T^T ... and thirdly, all that pattern on the top and sleeves would be a nightmare - HOWEVER! Inspite of all that, I think a part of me will have fun somewhat constucting the dress and wig (It's such a cute hair style -^^-)

I cannot guarantee a date anytime soon when I'll make this though cos I have to work up a lot of experience before facing something this challenging DX

Aww as much as I would, I'm not sure if I'll be able to make the Friday or have the funds for this cosplay sadly - May consider it some time next year as I know there will always be a soul calibur group running :3 x
