Maxi (Player 1) - Soul Calibur IV (4)



Photos

 


Information

I picked this cos as it was light and easy to wear for AX and because its a character my Dad might know of as he always spams Maxi when we play SC

My first time wearing this I had a lot or sunburn and some nasty tan lines :(

So I pretty much painted myself in spray concealer and rubbed it in and sealed it with hair spray as best as I could, even so the inside was stained to hell and back and the dry cleaners have butchered the Bias so there are a few repairs needed before Aya.

Yay! Soul Calibur love! :D Do it for Aya! We have a big Soul Calibur group getting together and could always do with more characters! Wish you a lot of luck with this! I'm sure you'll pull it off brilliantly though! :]

RE DO!!!!

I am now entering new territory....
I have always accepted flaws in costumes, cut corners And general used bodgey cover-ups...

This tme i had no choice...

When ironing on Violene i kinda scorched the top so i first of all tried to cover it up with white fabric paint, it looked really bad....

So having that fail i have had to re do ive never had to restart from scratch before..... now im at the point i was 2 weeks ago :( time is ticking down TBH im worried :S
