And so, WCS-Russian preliminaries this year are finished, and we lost, took 3rd place.

ErikDesler and I make a good team, but we managed to miscalculate needed time and lost too many hours of sleep during the 3 months we made costumes, and have not sleeped at all for the last 3 days prior to festival. We've somehow managed to finish our full-plate armor and all of our weapons (5 of them, including Soul Calibur and Soul Edge), but we totally failed our performance and prejurjment. Thus - 3rd place.
We've learned our lesson, so we'll try better next year.

Our choice this year was Soul Calibur IV game, and my favourite characters - Hildegard von Krone and Siegfried Schtauffen. I do still think we are matching those characters rather good.
Hildegard von Krone (with Glänzende Nova & Frischer Himmel and Soul Calibur) and Siegfried Schtauffen (with Gram from SCIV: Broken Destiny and Soul Edge) made by duet Sword Art OFFline (ElenaLeetah & ErikDesler). Everyhing made by just us in three months after work and trainings :)

Feeling kinda nostalgic, 1 year ago I had almost exactly the same post :) So, once again!..

"Yay, ErikDesler and me passed, and so we will participate in Russian WCS preliminaries", this time with Soul Calibur IV cosplay.
We had rather simple costumes last year, but we still took 2nd place. So this time around we decided to make more complicated costumes, script and fight :) This time there are two full-plate armored characters, full story (well, everything we can tell in 2.5 min) and complicated fencing scheme.

Wish us luck, please!

I am a married woman with 7 y.o. kid and a rather demanding job, thus I don't have that much time for the cosplay, especially since I sew and craft most of my costumes. That is the main reason I have such a short list of finished costumes, though I always have a huge list of wanted cosplays-to-do.

Most of the project now includes fencing and, by extension, my fencing partner - ErikDesler, and thus most of our paired cosplay includes some kind of weaponry (mostly steel swords) and now open-handed combat and stunts as well. Our cosplay and fencing duet named Sword Art OFFline.
