Xiba (2 player ) - Soul Calibur V

In Progress




Probably the closest a character has ever got to my height!
A few friends have been suspecting this for a while but goodness knows why given that I never mentioned that I'd do it. :P
Been tantalised by the videos of this outfit in battle and although I can make out a few of the details I decided it was better to wait for better references...waiting ages and they only release it a few days before a contest's deadline, rather typical!

Still need a back reference as I suspect that there's a swirly phoenix or dragon motif on the the rear half of the tails...but I should have enough to make a start.

embroidery adventures continue

finished the test embroidery. I'm not sure it's the most efficient way to make a number of oriental patterns on the satin, but it looks good!
This is not the complete unit of pattern as this is all I can make out from the references I got. There's a whole swirly bit on the upper to mid-right as well as an entirely different crisscross pattern connected to the lower right.

Hand embroidery...

satin stitching is quite possibly even more tedious than handsewing a costume!
However, the results look promising...famous last words, especially after the spray painting on imitation leather fiasco...
