The lights are on
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.

She's just too hot.
I'm all for dressing as the character you love, whatever floats your boat. I know I don't have the patience, talent, or physique to pull off a costume of that detail. Congrats and nicely done.
Raise that staff! A little higher... higher... awww yeah...
I wasn't a fan of Seung Mina's character model, but I AM a fan of this one! lol

she is so hot, ohhhh man.
My God... she is HAAAWWWT! This is hands down the hottest cosplay I have seen on GI EVAR. Girls like this are descended straight from gaming heaven.
Thats some nice underboob as well LOL
beautiful girl, shame cosplayers scare the bejezus outta me. FYI anyone else notice the boobage in third from last pic?
That was pretty awesome! She did a really great job depicting Seung Mina. Her friend did a great job depicting Talim as well.
This is epic win! :D Cosplayer Konoe is a Cosplay Goddess! :) (Hope 'Cosplayer Konoe' is the right way to refer to her.)
I gotta give ya your props here. Kinda bold move, yet you did nicely with it.
