Yan Leixia (1P) - Soul Calibur V


Hyper Japan Spring 2012

1st Place Best Individual Cosplayer Hyper Japan 2012




I like this game and my sister decided to cosplay her and it was a team effort! I made the sword with my mums help because first time I made it too short -fail OTL- but still need to add the details on the handle circle thing, my mum helped my sister with the outfit, she said it needs tweaking as she is never happy with what she makes but I think it looks awesome, she learnt how to make Chinese knots and the tassles which look pretty cool o3o! we couldn't get the right colour for the outfit but manage to find a material with a pattern that kinda matches! :D!
And she is using her real hair to cosplay her, looks cool o(^_^)b

Sword was remade out of wood by my Uncle, Mum, brother, myself and sister (family teamwork)

Hair, Makeup and Photo by my mum.

My sister will be wearing this to HJ2012 Spring next month so see you all there!
Probably the Saturday now, o3o But going all 3 days yay \o/

We still cant believe my sister won and shes still like did she win? :3

Thank you everyone for the nice comments and chatting to us as it was our 1st time at Hyper Japan :D

It was so nice meeting everyone and sorry we couldnt meet everyone there, missed alot of people but hopefully next time. :3

This is so pretty. I love the choice of delicate fabrics. And that hairstyle is incredible. Does it take long to do every time?

The fabric you used look gorgeous. I love the textures. And that blue background really gives pop to the pictures! The lines of that sword are so clean. What did you use to make it? Big congrats on the win!
