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 Character
Seung Mina from Soul Calibur III

Why: The Decision
A 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 Process
The 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 Debut
The 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.
