Cosplay: Tira

Me as Tira. Picture taken by Eurobeat King at Fanime 2007

As I’ve said before, I love video games and I love evil people. Though one could argue that Tira isn’t really evil so much as crazy. Regardless I also love the characters with the freaky weird fighting styles and weapons. If I had the body for it I’d probably cosplay as Voldo but that’s another story all together.

Character: Tira

From: Soul Caliber III

Version: Player One in alternate color scheme.

Notes: I was originally going to do this costume in it’s usual green but I couldn’t find a green body suit that didn’t look goofy so I ended up using a black cat suit for the top and some pants that I found at some weird shop at the mall for the bottom. By far the only time I ever bought pre-ripped jeans in my life. Possibly the only time I ever will. The armor was actually cheap plastic roman armor painted and cut up. Add some ribbon, leather ties, a green feather boa and some gloves and you got a costume.

The full costume plus the bladed hula hoop weapon. Sadly the lighting was a little too dark here but you can see the hula hoop at least.

Hardest Part: The damned weapon. That there is a hula hoop with some foam core poster board and a lot of silver duct tape. The wig was also a pain as I started with a green wig, hated it and used a black one and some green hair spray instead.

Favorite Part: The body paint and the make up. I love how it came out.

Hours Spent on it: Probably about twelve.

Cost: Um… hmm… probably less than $100. It was a fairly cheap costume to make.

Cosplay: Dizzy

That's me as Dizzy at Fanime

Hello All,

I’ve been rather busy with school and trying to find a job so I haven’t been able to post as often as I had been. So I’ve decided to give you guys another installment of cosplay. Hope you enjoy it.

Character: Dizzy

From: Guilty Gear X

Inspiration: Oddly enough this costume was suppose to be a present for a boyfriend by the name of James but then that relationship fell apart and I was left with this costume. Which was fine. I guess. I had been playing the game and I do like the character. She’s got this innocence about her despite the slutty outfit.

Notes: This costume was made by taking a bunch of other costumes and cutting and sewing them together. It’s probably the skimpiest costume I’ve ever worn save for that time my friend Cheryl and I dressed as savage tiger girls for Bay Con. That was pretty skimpy. If I had been doing this costume for real I would have started from scratch, made the wings a lot prettier and probably done a few hundred sit ups prior to wearing it but it turned out alright I suppose.

Favorite part: The wig and the sleeves. I think by far they turned out the best.

Least Favorite Part: The stalkings and the wings. That and the fact that I felt like I was going to fall out of it every time I moved.
