Fanboys (and girls) are a special breed in the gaming world. With their zealous enthusiasm they single-handedly have the ability to make or break games, breathe life back into flailing franchises and (if they use their powers for evil) start flame wars across the Internet. Their undying devotion for a developer, game or character has spawned web-rings, epic works of art and the desire to participate in the ultimate fan tribute – cosplay. This weekly blog highlights some of the best cosplay found around the net. These fans put their blood, sweat and tears into their work, and it shows.

Talk about some impressive armor. Check out Orochi X's take on Siegfried of SC IV fame.

Who: The Character
Siegfried Schtauffen from the game Soul Calibur IV

Why: The Decision
I’m a gamer and Soul Calibur series is one of my favorites so far. I choose Siegfried because first time I saw him, I was so attracted with his icy armor, I never saw any design like it before and I found it interesting and unique.

What: The Process
Me and my big brother took 3 months to make it done. We used mainly liquid plastic and fiber glass for the icy part, it was very stressful because it was the first time we used that kind of material and we almost gave up making it. But in last minutes we decided to keep going and yeah I’m glad that finally we’ve made it, though it’s not perfect but I’m proud of our works.
The final cost is around USD100.
Where and When: The Debut
I debuted my costume at Comic Fiesta 2008, Malaysia
I did the photoshoot at Millenia Walk, Singapore.
A Malaysian photographer named Thomas Kuan aka Hexlord took the shoot
I choose the location after a discussion with the photographer, I saw his portfolio and I found this location quite match for my costume. So I asked him to shoot me there.
