It still might actually be a little early for this, but a few characters have already been announced/leaked, and my old favorite is going to be returning:

I can't tell you how happy I am that Ivy's long-running streak of losing more clothing with each game has ended! Now I'm not so afraid of cosplaying her!
Siegfried is coming back (of course) as well as Mitsurugi, but it looks like Taki and Sophitia are being replaced with a younger generation. Check out what they've got so far in concept art. [url]http://www.creativeuncut.com/art_soulcalibur-5_a.html[/url]
So anyone else making SCV cosplay plans early?

I'm waiting for designs for Amy so I can hopefully get an outfit of hers done for Otakon next year. If I don't like her design from this one, or if she isn't in the game, I'll just do her SCIV costume.

Man I am so far behind. I haven't even gotten to play SCIV yet. Blast these games that only come out for PS3 and not a dumbed down version for PS2. I can't afford a PS3 gaise. ;.;

My friend is interested in Tira's new costume, so I may be making that for her. I hope they bring back Xianghua~

#5 pinoycosplay on 7 years ago

Yeah It sucks that it seems like xianghua won't be making the initial roster, I just did her soul calibur 2 outfit. ALthough they may have her available as a downloadable character like street fighter did.

I was going to do sueng mina next, but looks like she got cut as well. I'm going to wait for the final SC5 roster before i do another sc character. But I still love the sc2 classic outfits.

Yeah I have been thinking for a while about doing a cervantes cosplay. It would be so awesome if done right.

#7 vvip on 7 years ago

I've decided to do Xiba. I really would want to get a group together :l Do you see many Soul Calibur cosplays at the conventions you go to? I feel like I don't...

#8 KieranPrince on 7 years ago

Viola's character design is absolutely beautiful but I'm kind of afraid of attempting her right now.

#9 FeyMeggan on 7 years ago

So...sorta ran off full tilt and got a lot of Viola's main outfit done in the last week, but now I'm running into an issue. Her skirt. I love it, and hate it. I may love her design but no one wants to see my butt, so I'm polling about to see what people think of maybe tossing a petticoat under it. It'll prevent ridiculous butt shots, and give the skirt lift...but my brain keeps telling me it won't be accurate so I'm vacillating badly on it....

I'm gonna be starting on Viola in the next few weeks, and I was thinking of having a petticoat underneath as well. She's got a Lolita style to her outfit so I don't think there's anything wrong with giving that skirt a lift...just as long as the ruffles don't take away too much attention to the skirt itself.

By the way, I'd like to ask you what colors you're using...it seems like the colors in her artwork pic are pretty different from her game screenshots, but I can't tell if that's just the surroundings reflecting off of her costume or what. I was thinking of going with the artwork because I'm not crazy about the colors as they look in the CG render.

#11 FeyMeggan on 7 years ago

Colour wise I'm sticking in the purple families, but the stupid trim/details on her top are driving me nuts. For the cape/tails I did an aubergine/more red purple, then lined it in red. The skirt and top are both the same purple, but it has a shine so I think the 'apron' area(which after staring at a million hours I realized it part of the top) will get the shine and look lighter. Ironically, outside of the ruffle bit, which I found a lovely sparkley purple organza for, all this fabric already lived in my stash.

Don't get me started on the edging colours. Outside of the ruffle and the purple lace I've no idea what colours it's supposed to be. So I'm going with a combination of silver/purple for the wide bits, black for the edging bits and if I'm crazy I might toss a bit of gold into there as well. But you're right, none of the references match up.

I don't plan for my petticoat/ruffle to show much, I just want it for the lift and butt coverage really. But I'm now debating doing it either in the purple of the main skirt, or the purple of the ruffle..can't decide.

#12 Lurrdoc on 7 years ago

A part of me wants to cosplay as Raphael in his SC5 costume. It just looks so musketeer-like. I love it.

Good luck to anyone who wants to cosplay SC5. I know a few characters from the previous games didn't make it into this one and they are making a pretty neat cast of new characters. It's a shame, though, new costume versions for old characters are sometimes the fun of cosplay. :P

#13 Ghai on 7 years ago

I'm adding Zwei to my list of outfits once I'm fit again. One day...

Lol, maybe algol too.

#14 FeyMeggan on 7 years ago

So, completely ditched the petticoat option because I found a goodwill hoop skirt, and now Viola has her own 'satalite dish' hoop set. I'm going to add some bloomers/spanx/something to cover my butt. She'll premier at a tiny li'l local con next week so I'll have pictures then(cause my camera is MIA)!

My girlfriend and I have had our Leixia and Xiba costumes ready and rockin if anyone wants to throw a group together at any of the SoCal cons!
