Cosplayer Konoe is a fan of fighting games, and you can tell by the caliber of her work on Seung Mina’s SCIII costume (pun intended). If you like her style, make sure to visit Konoe’s DeviantArt account to check out other costumes from Final Fantasy, Tekken, Devil May Cry, and more.
Who: The CharacterSeung Mina from Soul Calibur III
Why: The DecisionA time ago I was searching for a female game character with long brown hair, because I’ve have the same hair. I saw the official Soul Calibur IV art of Seung Mina. I was so happy I found her. Even before I first played Soul Calibur III I decided to make her costume. She is strong, beautiful, and she has a lot of costumes. I chose her first variant. I thought it the most beautiful of them all. And I love her weapon named Scarlet Thunder. Soul Calibur is the best fighting game I’ve ever seen. What: The ProcessThe entire costume took about a week. I used polystyrene, pvc, wood, acrylic paints, scarlet textile, green atlas, and textile canting. The most difficult task was the patterns on top and skirt.Where and When: The DebutThe debut was at the festival "Anifest Victory,” in St. Petersburg, Russia back in November 2009. We shot the costume at Aleksandrovsky park and Ekaterininsky park because there is a location called “China Village” with beautiful stylized Chinese Architecture.

Awesome costume. The boobs were nice too.
man her iris' are huge! She must be wearing some type of contacts to make them look like that. Cool costume and going bra-less was a good touch. Hope it wasn't a windy day when they took the pics.
totally scorchin edition.. hey GI.. you need to begin a calendar or something.. these chicks are kinda HOT!.
great boob pic!
Wow, they did a really good job! :)
3rd and 5th pic were super hot! she is gorgeous
I'm always impressed by the dedication of cosplayers to characters that they really like. Makes me wish I had the craft skill and such necessary to do some of the characters I really like. Unfortunatly I'm way to lazy to do the hard work that I'm sure goes in to a truly fantastic cosplay costume. Kudos to her for a fantastic costume and such great dedication.
I was reading the bio, yes I read it and didn't just slobber over the pics....well I did that a bit too, BUT
"The debut was at the festival "Anifest Victory,” in St. Petersburg, Russia...."
Is this a Russian cosplayer?
I love Russian women.....
She did a great job, very impressive all the way around.
She got the costume down nice. The patterns do match and were pretty complicated to pull off. And she looks amazing! Definitely in my top 3 on the CosBlog :D
wow good costume and incredibly beautiful russian girl
ok um.. thats really good and all but i know of 4th graders who go to this website so its a little skimpy.. but i dont mind ;)
"Today on Peter Griffen's Side-Boob Hour..."
Pretty good representation, but I kinda feel like they're giving meaning to a certain stereotype here.
Great Work, very talented.
look forward to more.
That is some excellent cosplay. While I don't have a problem how revealing the costume is, I wouldn't have blame her if she wanted to alter her top to make it less revealing.
