Kallen is one of my favourite characters of all time, and has been an incredible source of inspiration for me, so I can't think of a better way to mark my one year anniversary of cosplaying than to cosplay her! I had a ton of fun as her and felt better about myself and how I looked than ever before. Anyway, I got a mini-shoot in with my friend Daniel, so I figured I'd post a shot from it as a bit of a preview for things to come!
Ah! I got to cosplay my darling Rise for the first time at March Comicon! I am a huge fan of the Persona games, and Shin Megami Tensei in general, and Rise is my absolute favourite character. I can relate a lot to her at times, and on top of that people tell me I look like her, so she was perfect cosplay material! Here, the costume isn't quite complete yet; I don't have a turtleneck on and I want to hem the skirt so you can see my zettai ryouiki. Regardless, I had so much fun shooting as Rise (And with the amazingly talented Viewtiful Design, nonetheless!) that I simply had to post some photos. I'l have shots as Shadow Rise up as well!
I tried drawing chun li, one of my favourite female game characters. Chun li has an impressive characterization, with her backstory and design making her character timeless. I tried to draw her proportions with reference to her in game sprite, so her muscles look pretty huge. I don't really mind though, because athleticism has been a part of her design (Seriously just look at the character art in the alpha series) and yeah...thunder thighs. On another note I think I need to work on my colouring. I suppose backgrounds help too :/
