Knives Chau from Scott Pilgrim

cosplay and editing by :iconserenadestrong:
photography by :iconda-rk:

The photos were taking in a public library. I was sure we'd be asked to leave but somehow everyone turned a blind eye and we had a great time :D

Scott Pilgrim is kind of the best comic book ever. If you haven't read it, go buy a copy now!

or at least watch the movie trailer!



Knives Chau is the girl Scott is dating at the beginning of the series. She's in high school, and too young for him. She is 17 years old.

There are not a lot of color pictures of her and as far as I know, the only official one with this hair style is this one:

And her outfit in the actual comic is different - all black - so I only used this as a guideline.

This is mostly a closet cosplay. I bought the arm things especially for the costume. The scarf was hand knit by my roommate and me, and I swapped out a section of the wefts on a black wig with prewefted red for the hair.

Knives is cool but I think her Dad is on a level of his own. [link]

This guy spammed this same self-advertising comment on every image of Knives on DA. Very classy, huh?

While I'm here, that's a great photo. Really got her pose down.

Easy does it. You'll upset some bionic armed band member and she'll punch you so hard the highlights will get knocked right outta your hair!

haha, that punch is one of my favorite moments - it just sums up so much of what makes Scott Pilgrim so great.
